Preface

Preface:

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.
