Synopsis:

Keratoconus is a progressive, non-inflammatory eye disorder that results in reduction of visual acuity and sensitivity to glare and light. Devastating and progressively worsening in many people, the eye disease now affects 1 in 500 people-- a 400% greater frequency than before. Previous treatments included hard contacts or even cornea transplants. Now, in Dr. Brian S. Boxer Wachler's new book How We Conquered Keratoconus - First hand experiences from those who took back their lives from this devastating eye disease, readers can learn of alternatives that have saved vision in many patients, and in one instance, led to an Olympic gold medal. About Brian Boxer Wachler, MD Beverly Hills-based "Dr. Brian" has been treating Keratoconus patients from all over the United States with minimally-invasive, "cornea-transplant saving" procedures that he pioneered since 1999. Considered by many to be "The Keratoconus Guru," he received the Jules Stein Living Tribute Award in 2010 for inventing C3-R and performing it on U.S. Olympic Bobsled Driver Steven Holcomb. The procedure was renamed "Holcomb C3-R" in Steven's honor on The Doctors television show because of the world-wide recognition that Steven brought to the procedure. Dr. Brian was also the first doctor in the world outside Germany to perform corneal collagen cross linking. In 2003 he invented the 1-day recovery, non-invasive Holcomb C3-R Crosslinking System.

About the Author: One of the top bobsledders in the world and leader of the four-man American team, Steven Holcomb had finished sixth in the 2006 Olympics and medaled in nearly every competition he entered. He was considered a strong gold contender for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. Talented, aggressive, and fearless, he was at the top of his game. But he had a dangerous secret. Steven Holcomb was going blind. In the prime of his athletic career, he was diagnosed with keratoconus-a degenerative disease affecting 1 in 1,000 and leaving 1 in 4 totally blind without a cornea transplant. In the world of competitive sports, it was a dream killer. Not a sport for the timid, bobsledding speeds approach 100 miles per hour through a series of hairpin turns. Serious injuries-even deaths-can result. But Holcomb kept his secret from his coach, sled mates, and the public for months and continued to drive the legendary sled The Night Train. When he finally told his coach, Holcomb was led to a revolutionary Keratoconus treatment, later named the Holcomb C3-R. With his sight restored to 20/20, Holcomb became the first American in 50 years to win the International Bobsled and Skeleton Federation World Championship, and the first American bobsledder since 1948 to win the Olympic gold medal.
