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:

It was an amazing feeling as I sat up and for the first time since the third grade, I could read the clock on the other side of the room without the aid of my glasses or contacts. I'm thankful for the life-changing procedure performed by Dr. Silverman and his staff. I hated the discomfort of my glasses and I hated having to rely on my contacts, especially in a sport where perfect vision is vital.
 
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!
