Katherine Reutter, the number 1 ranked American Short Track Speedskater, had her LASIK surgery at EyeCare 20/20 last month. Katherine is a 5-time World Cup Medalist, 4-time American record holder, and ranked 7th in the overall World Championships.

We just received this  note from Katherine:

Just 10 short days ago i got LASIK eye surgery from Dr. Silverman at Eyecare 20/20 in East Hanover, NJ and I’m happy to say that I’m recovering wonderfully and have almost fully adapted to a life without glasses or contacts! I had very little discomfort after the surgery even though there were warnings of dry eyes and irritation. The surgery was quick and painless and I’ll be happy with the results for the rest of my life.


The office of Eyecare 20/20 was such a quaint and hospitable atmosphere. I felt like the nurses and doctor had been my lifelong caregivers and not just people who’d be helping me on one short visit. The staff was very flexible allowing me to take the time i needed to prepare for the surgery; they were supportive and reassuring through out all of my concerns.


I would highly recommend Dr. Silverman and Eyecare 20/20 for anyone interested in LASIK surgery. I couldn’t have had a better experience anywhere else.



We are anxiously looking forward to Katherine’s upcoming season with her new visual freedom..
