Sarasota, Florida -- Thirteen million people saw him tightrope walk across the Niagara Falls. Now, Nik Wallenda is hoping to see his own adventures a little more clearly.

The Sarasota daredevil just underwent Lasik surgery.

On his walk across the Grand Canyon, Wallenda says his drying contact lens affected his vision. Obviously, a clear line of sight is mandatory for his line of work.

So Wallenda decided have his sight corrected by a laser, operated by a hometown surgeon, so he won't have to fuss with contacts or glasses again.
