Curt Tomasevicz, a member of the 09 World Championship 4-man Bobsled Team made the trip down to EyeCare 20/20 this month for his LASIK surgery. Curt began the sport of bobsled in 2004. Just two years later, he placed sixth in 4-man with driver Steven Holcomb at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy. In 2007, Tomasevicz won a World Cup gold medal with Holcomb in 2-man on the same Olympic track. During the first half of the 2008-2009 season, he has pushed Holcomb to silver and bronze World Cup medals in 4-man and a gold medal at the 2009 4-man National Championships. He recently won a silver medal with Holcomb at the inaugural World Cup race in Whistler, Canada, site of the 2010 Olympic Games. The season culminated with the 4- man world championship win.
Kurt recently sent us the following note:
The entire Eyecare 20/20 staff was incredibly kind and friendly. The procedure was explained thoroughly and all my questions were answered clearly. I experienced very minimal discomfort and zero side effects. My vision is now as good as I would have ever dreamed. Thanks 20/20!

Kurt is anxiously looking forward to testing his new eyes out this upcoming season. Hopefully a Gold Medal at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver will shine in his future!
