Eye Surgeon Discusses 1st Minimally Invasive Cure For Keratoconus

STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Dr. Brian S. Boxer, director of the Boxer Wachler Vision Institute in Beverly Hills, appeared on KCAL9 News on Saturday morning to discuss his new book and the development of the first minimally invasive cure for Keratoconus.

Keratoconus, affecting one in 500 people, is a progressive and devastating eye disorder that may result in blindness.

Dr. Boxer’s book, “How We Conquered Keratoconus,” is the story of his journey in developing the first minimally invasive cure for the disorder.

The procedure is called Holcomb C3-R after Olympic bobsledder Steven Holcomb — a patient of Dr. Boxer’s.

“How We Conquered Keratoconus” discusses treatment options.
