East Hanover, NJ (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
An avid sports fan, Cary M. Silverman, M.D., Medical Director of EyeCare 20/20 in East Hanover, New Jersey, began LASIK® For The Gold as a means of helping to support some of America’s top athletes who participate in Olympics sports.
In the fall of 2009, Dr. Silverman treated 2008 Olympic Bronze Medalist BMX rider Jill Kintner. Since then, word of Dr. Silverman’s services spread and athletes from a wide range of sporting event from across the country have traveled to EyeCare 20/20’s state-of-the-art facilities for their own LASIK® surgery.
There’s no question that vision plays an enormous role in nearly every sport. While the sports fan in him would love to have been able to compete at the Olympic level, Dr. Silverman's talent lies in surgical eye care. So, whether helping a bobsled driver to see the ice more clearly or a hockey player have improved peripheral vision, he's happy to share his skills in the operating room.
