fer from astigmatism, an ir-
regularly shaped eyeball which
causes blurry vision. But the
brothers have other reasons for

to fog up and vibrate on the
slopes, which can hamper vi-

noted that the Mahres’ contact
lenses made it through more
than just months of rigorous
training and sub-zero tempera-
tures. On the day of the race,
they withstood the tears that
came from victory and the birth
of Phil’s son.
