Appleton, WI (WTVR)–Monday night’s dramatic last-minute loss to the Seattle Seahawks has many Green Bay Packers fans seeing red.  

Now a Wisconsin eye care provider wants to help the NFL referee who made the game-deciding call see more clearly.  

The doctor is offering free Lasik surgery to the replacement referees who officiated Monday night’s game.  

“Yeah. The referees obviously they had some vision issues, so we decided that they we could help them with that,” Dr. Christopher Smith, who has offered to donate services, said. 

Smith says he and his staff will also talk to the referees about decision-making, and the rules of football.  

No word yet on whether the NFL will take the eye doctor up on his offer.
