After Jake noticed that he no longer could see the chalkboard in his classroom clearly, his mom, Lori, took him to the eye doctor.
“When Jake said he couldn’t see the big "E," I was speechless,” she says.
Jake was diagnosed with keratoconus, a degenerative eye disease that causes the cornea to gradually deteriorate and develop an abnormal, cone-like shape. The condition usually affects both eyes and progresses over a span of 10 years or longer.
Doctors told his parents that Jake would have to go blind in both eyes before he could have a cornea transplant.
Two years later, his parents were watching the Olympics and heard bobsledder Steven Holcomb’s story of overcoming keratoconus. Then, they saw a segment on The Doctors when Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler explained the procedure he performed on Holcomb that saved his vision.
“I knew that there was hope for Jake,” his mother said.
Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler explains the three procedures he performed on Jake. Then, see Dr. Boxer Wachler perform the procedure to implant contacts in Jake’s eye, and watch as Jake sees his parents for the first time after the surgery.
