EAST HANOVER, NJ, JAN. 15, 2010 - Team LASIK-FOR-THE-GOLD, is
a collection of champion Olympic athletes from across the country who
have all had LASIK vision correction surgery by Cary M. Silverman,
M.D., Medical Director of EyeCare 20/20.
With exactly one month to go to the start of the Winter Olympic Games, American
athletes are scattered around the globe, some are desperately looking to secure
their spot on the team, others making the final preparations of a never ending quest
to deliver their life's best performance next month in Vancouver, when it matters
most. With the clock ticking, the LASIK-For-The-Gold Winter Olympians appear poised
to bring home their share of Olympic hardware. Here is an update on each of the
world class athletes who are patients of Cary M. Silverman, M.D. and the team of eye
care professionals at EyeCare 20/20:
Katherine Reutter (short track speedskating) - Reutter is now a 17-time world cup
medalist who is locked-n-loaded for her Olympic debut. She will compete in four
different events and is considered to be one of Team USA's most likely Olympic
Chad Hedrick (speedskating) - Already a gold, silver and bronze medalist from the
2006 Olympics in Torino, Hedrick has recently returned to his championship form and
earned medals in both of his last two world cup events, including a gold medal in
Calgary, Canada in December. Hedrick will square off against fellow American Shani
Davis in the 1500 meters at this year's Games in what promises to be one of the
must-see showdown events of the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Curt Tomasevicz (bobsled) - A pusher behind U.S. driver Steve Holcomb in Team
U.S.A.'s number one sled the 'Night Train', Tomasevicz and his teammates are on
the podium more often than they are off of it. They are considered the team to beat
when the Olympic medals are on the line next month.
Eric Pac (bobsled) - Long since considered 'likely to make the Olympic Team', Pac
has recently shown that simply getting to the Olympics isn't good enough. A world
cup bronze medal in Salt Lake City in November turned heads on the international
bobsled circuit and marked Pac as someone to keep an eye on in Vancouver. She
currently holds a 5th place ranking in the overall World Cup standings.
Molly Engstrom (hockey) - A bronze medalist at the 2006 Olympics, a World Champion,
and a long time member of the U.S. National Team, Engstrom and her teammates are
highly likely to do battle with the host Canadian team with gold medals on the line.
In this heated international rivalry, silver doesn't count.
Dan Joye (luge) - Joye, who is part of the doubles luge team of Niccum & Joye, will
enter the Games, his second Olympics, as part of the number one ranked U.S. sled. A
recent world cup fourth place finish marked the team's best ever placing - one step
up in Vancouver will put Joye on the podium.
