Date:9/22/2010

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- After ten years of dedication to developing new, innovative treatments to help patients with Keratoconus, a degenerative eye disease that affects millions of people worldwide and can cause severe loss of vision, Dr. Brian S. Boxer Wachler, MD is to receive one of the highest honors a physician can achieve.  On Thursday evening, September 23, Dr. Boxer Wachler will receive the Jules Stein Living Tribute Award at the 2010 Vision Awards.

Dr. Boxer Wachler was chosen as an honoree for restoring the eyesight of 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics Gold Medal bobsled driver Steve Holcomb.

Three years ago Holcomb's Keratoconus nearly led him to retire from the sport of bobsledding.  In 2007, Dr. Boxer Wachler performed an innovative new non-invasive procedure he had developed for the treatment of Keratoconus, then called C3-R, that saved Holcomb's vision.  A few months later he also performed an insertable contact lens procedure to further improve Holcomb's vision to 20/20.

Holcomb was not only able to return to his sport of bobsled, but at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics he won the first U.S. Gold Medal in bobsled in 62 years.  In honor of one of the greatest feats in sports history, Dr. Boxer Wachler renamed the procedure Holcomb C3-R to honor the athlete and his achievement.  This marked the first time a medical procedure was named after an Olympic athlete.

"I'm honored and humbled to be recognized for doing what I love to do which is help people, especially when they were told by other doctors that no other options exist," said Dr. Boxer Wachler on his recognition by the 2010 Visio
