Advanced Treatment

from a Board-Certified Surgeon

Dr. Holzman is a highly trained and board-certified ophthalmologist.

If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, corrective lenses are a necessity in order to perform your daily tasks. Contact lenses and glasses are trusted solutions but need to be replaced periodically as your prescription changes. Contact lenses also require maintenance that can be a hassle, and take precious time out of your day. LASIK eye surgery performed by Dr. Holzman at one of our locations in Washington, D.C., Maryland, or Virginia can correct your vision, virtually eliminating your dependence on contact lenses and glasses.

Take the first step towards achieving clearer vision for good. Contact our practice online or call (855) 99-LASIK to schedule an appointment.

We offer several procedures and implement advanced technology, including:

Featured Procedures


The most commonly performed refractive surgery, LASIK gently reshapes the cornea to provide crisper, clearer vision. LASIK can be performed during a single office visit and the procedure only takes about 10 minutes per eye. LASIK can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Complications are very rare, especially when performed by an industry leader such as Dr. Holzman, but the most common side effect is dry eyes. Laser eye surgery causes a temporary decrease in tear production, so the use of eye drops can help with the symptoms of dry eye.


PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is a refractive surgery that is an excellent alternative to LASIK for patients with thin corneas and certain lifestyle restrictions. PRK was the first laser eye surgery developed for vision correction and is the predecessor of LASIK. PRK has a longer recovery time compared to LASIK, but offers patients who may not qualify a way to correct their vision so they should no longer have to rely on glasses or contact lenses. Like LASIK, side effects are rare but you may experience discomfort for a couple of days after treatment.

Cutting-Edge Technology


Dr. Holzman always maintains the latest and most advanced refractive laser technologies and treatments available in the field of keratomileusis today. This allows him to offer each patient the widest range of procedures, which results in unique care for each individual set of eyes. Perhaps the most innovative breakthrough in technology to-date is Contoura Vision. Using topography-guided laser vision correction, Contoura Vision allows ophthalmologists to provide the most precise enhancement available. Each patient is carefully examined in order to determine the most beneficial method of correction.

Very personable and knowledgeable staff who all contributed to a seamless and efficient experience. Dr. Holzman is very thorough and provided clear and concise instructions, expectations, and directions leading up to procedure and talked you through the whole thing. Excellent availability for follow up to ensure patient understanding, comfort and satisfaction. Worth every penny and the 4 hour one way drive from southern WV! Enjoying my new vision!”

Specialized Vision Correction Options

Contoura Vision

Another advancement in LASIK technology, Contoura Vision provides exceptional results while minimizing the risk of side effects. Contoura Vision is a topography-guided laser vision correction that reshapes the cornea to an incredibly precise degree. The diagnostic capabilities of Contoura Vision can identify the most minute imperfections in the corneal tissue to provide your eyes with an improved focusing surface. Dr. Holzman will run a series of eye scans to determine if you are a good candidate for Contoura Vision during your LASIK treatment.

Treatment for Keratoconus

Keratoconus results in nearsightedness and other vision issues due to weakening of the corneal tissue, which allows the cornea to bulge outward. A chronic corneal condition, it can be managed with the right treatment or combination of treatments but there may be a point when corrective eyewear such as glasses and contact lenses are no longer effective. Dr. Holzman can help you understand keratoconus, and determine the best way to help you maintain your vision. Our practice offers advanced treatment options, such as corneal cross-linking, so patients can achieve lasting results and an improved quality of life.

Corneal Cross-Linking

Corneal cross-linking is a minimally invasive treatment for keratoconus. This procedure can restore the shape of eyes affected by keratoconus and prevent the disease from causing further loss of vision. Our practice is one of the few approved clinical trial sites in the nation for this innovative new treatment method.
