Joe Schilling, Professional Athlete and MMA Fighter Gets Laser Vision Correction Surgery

Joe Schilling, athlete and professional MMA fighter received his vision correction surgery with Dr. Alexandra Chebil in her private Newport Beach Lasik Center practice located in the heart of Orange County.

Dr. Alexandra Chebil is regarded as an athlete vision correction specialist, so it didn’t come as a surprise when Jamie Gall, a sports management agent to top professional athletes worldwide reached out to Dr. Alexandra to discuss Joe Schilling’s need for vision correction.

“For as long as Joe can remember he has never had good eye sight, he was supposed to wear glasses as a child but never did because they got in the way of his active lifestyle” stated Gall in a private email to Dr. Alexandra.

She continued “Despite the challenges Joe’s eyesight presented, he went on to achieve greatness in the sport of kickboxing and continues building his legacy while he fights for Bellator MMA.  Joe has heard wonderful things about you and would like to trust you to perform his procedure.”

Doctor Alexandra was eager to help Joe achieve perfect vision without the need of glasses or contact lenses.


On Friday, March 29th, Joe was scheduled to fight Keith Berry at the Pechanga Casino in Southern California with his appointment already booked with Dr. Alexandra Chebil in Orange County on Monday, April 1st.

The office of Dr. Alexandra Chebil is home to many athletes she has treated in the past, but on April 1st, it was an event that everyone was excited to partake in.  Schilling, his agent, and an entire camera crew joined us during the procedure and documented the entire PRK vision correction treatment.


As Schilling stated on Instagram after his procedure “Friday I fought.  Monday, I had PRK laser eye surgery to fix my bad vision I’ve had since the second grade.  Turns out I’ve been fighting, driving, living blind.  A huge thank you to these great people for being so awesome to me throughout the process.  I’m a tough SOB but laser beams in your eyeballs had me pretty scared”.

The procedure was successful, and Schilling couldn’t be happier to finally put his bad vision behind him for good.


Jamie Gall, Schilling’s agent followed up with the office by stating “Joe is thrilled. Thank you all so much. You made this experience so wonderful for him. I couldn’t be more appreciative.”
