De'Vondre Campbell clearly sees the difference.

Last year, the Atlanta Falcons linebacker had trouble making out letters while reading without his glasses. Those issues translated to the football field.

"Like when I was looking at the scoreboard, I couldnt even read it, really," Campbell said. "I had terrible vision."

Campbell didnt wear contact lenses while playing, yet strolled through the locker room wearing glasses on a regular basis. So he decided to address his vision problems by having Lasik eye surgery this offseason.

"A lot kind of went into it ... really just the fact that I needed it," Campbell said. "It's a tremendous difference. I can notice it. On the scoreboard, I can see everything clearly on it now. That's how I knew my vision was better."

Campbell, last year's fourth-round draft pick out of Minnesota, went through the typical growing pains of a rookie after being thrust into a starting role. He was set back by a severe ankle sprain that caused him to miss four games and missed another game because of a concussion. But in regards to his vision problems, Campbell refused to use that as a crutch for any bad plays throughout last season.
