At SECO 2018, we sat down with gold medal Olympic gymnast, Dancing with the Stars winner, and NY Times best-selling author Laurie Hernandez to discuss contact lenses, perseverance, and her possible return to the sport!
Laurie was fit with CLs at an early age, and the improved vision they provided helped her training as she forged a path to the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
She’s subsequently become a spokesperson for Alcon, which is how we ended up getting this interview (yes, I was as shocked as you when this happened !)
Her positivity and poise are remarkable. My biggest takeaway from our brief talk was the importance of remaining optimistic in the face of long odds and (very) painful injuries.
Thanks again to Laurie and to Alcon for making it happen!
