Today was an exciting day here at OCLI. We were fortunate to host the Olympic Bronze Medal USA Bobsled team of Erin Pac and Elana Meyers. They were in town for two reasons.
First, they were here to let the public get a look at their Bronze Medals, sign autographed pictures, and talk about their Olympic experiences. About 100 people came in to take advantage of this unique opportunity. We posted photos of the event on our Flickr site.
Second, Elana was in town to join Erin as a member of the LASIK for the Gold team. Before an athlete can qualify for LASIK for the Gold, we have them get some preliminary testing at home so that Dr. Silverman can review the results. If everything looks OK, they are scheduled to come to New Jersey for additional testing and undergo LASIK surgery. Unfortunately, this additional testing showed that Elana was not a good LASIK candidate, and the surgery was canceled. I think we were all as disappointed as Elana!
The Daily Record was on hand to interview Elana and Erin and to take photos of the event. Click here to read today’s front page story: http://www.dailyrecord.com/article/20100406/COMMUNITIES/100405144/1005/NEWS01/Olympic-bobsledders-say-thanks-to-E.-Hanover-eye-doc—even-though-one-can-t-get-surgery
