By Andrew E Holzman, MD FACS on October 12, 2011
The aim of the newest TLC laser eye center is to provide patients with unparalleled care in a warm, comfortable, and inviting environment; individuals can expect superb patient care and a spa-like atmosphere that helps them relax before their procedure. The staff members at TLC Laser Eye Centers Tyson Corner do their part to accomplish this goal. Led by Dr. Andrew Holzman – a board-certified and fellowship-trained ophthalmologist who has performed more than 55,000 laser eye surgery procedures – the team is dedicated to personalizing treatment for each patient, from his or her initial consultation through the recovery process. The facility is uniquely equipped to meet the needs of individuals seeking to permanently improve their vision.
Patients of TLC Laser Eye Centers Tyson Corner benefit from advanced technology and, in Dr. Holzman, an experienced, talented, respected medical director. Published in several prominent professional journals, Dr. Holzman is also active in numerous professional organizations, including the American College of Surgeons, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and the American Academy of Ophthalmology. His skill and expertise make him the doctor of choice for other ophthalmologists seeking refractive surgery, and he routinely lectures to peers about the latest developments and technologies in the field. Thanks to Dr. Holzman’s skills and the experience of his staff, TLC is able to offer a lifetime commitment – should patients ever require additional treatment through their vision cycle, TLC will provide it free of charge. Whether an individual has moved or a surgeon has retired, TLC Laser Eye Centers is there for its patients.
On the technology front, TLC Laser Eye Centers Tysons Corner uses two different types of lasers – the Wavelight® Allegretto Wave® laser and Visx® CustomVue™ – to meet its patients’ needs. Offering bladeless iLASIK with the IntraLase® platform, TLC can improve its patients’ vision without the use of a microkeratome surgical blade. Though safe, a microkeratome cannot match the level of precision that is afforded through the use of a Wavelight® Allegretto Wave® laser and Visx® CustomVue™. These lasers are used in conjunction to create a map of the eye, determine a treatment plan, and modify the shape of the cornea to correct complications such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Additionally, to protect against errors during treatment, the Wavelight® system employs advanced, high-speed eye tracking so that laser pulses are directed towards the correct part of the cornea.
