US Women’s Hockey Player and Silver Medalist Molly Engstrom checked in this week in response to an email blast we recently put out about the Olympic medal success of Team OCLI:
Hi Keri and Dr. Silverman,
What a great article! So cool to read up on the other athletes (of which I spent a good amount of time with Chad and Katherine through the dining hall and in the village) and reflect on my experience with you guys and your staff at OCLI. My eyes are awesome and like Katherine said in the article, it was so great to be at the Olympics not only with great vision but without having to worry about contacts and glasses and messing with solution. It was a long journey and a wonderful journey for the Women’s hockey team. We had such a great group in Vancouver, and although heartbreaking in the end it was one of the most wonderful experiences of my life and I know it was very special for all of us. I just wanted to let you know that you were with me on my journey. I always think about how I can see perfectly without glasses or contacts and most often times I find it unbelievable. It has taken a great amount of time, energy and effort of so many people in my life to help me get to the Olympics and you are part of that family for me. Thank you so very much!
My very best,
