Bobsled Athlete Overcomes Keratoconus and Ready for Gold Medal Quest

Bobsled driver Steven Holcomb was ont he verge of giving up his passion for the Bobsled sport due to his keratoconus. Hi team, coaches, and team doctors virtually refused to let him quit.

They found alternative treatments to a cornea transplant that would allow Steve to return to the sport. Two years ago, Steve was sent to Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler for C3-R and 3 months later Visian ICL.

Steve Holcomb’s story was captured by NBC Nightly News with Bryan Williams wich can be viewed on

What makes Steve’s story particularly moving was that he went from nearly giving up the sport to winning a World Gold Medal for the U.S. in Bobsled – which had not been done in the past 50 years.

With his Keratoocnus cured, Steven’s going to Vancouver games with his team, the “Night Train” as the favorites.

I’ll be there rooting for Steven and his team.  We hope hisotry will again be made and we will all be cherring for Steven and the team!
