"Thanks so much for the care and attention you and your staff provided me.  Things seem to be going well.  I missed one letter on the 20/15 chart during my follow up with Dr. Crawford on Tuesday.  I couldn't be more pleased.  My vision is as good or better than it was with glasses.  I'm actually noticing a lot more things around me than I would have with glasses because my vision is clear from all peripherals instead of just being clear through the eyeglass window.


An interesting story from last weekend:  My family and I were having dinner at a friend's house.  With my new "super vision" as they called it, I was able to see a rattlesnake strike at a squirrel from 60 yards.  My friend located it (I'm not that brave when it comes to snakes) and dispatched it.  It had found a nice hiding place under his daughter's sliding board under her playset.  So I guess you could say my new vision potentially saved his daughter (and my daughter for that matter) a lot of pain and suffering (and possibly their lives) should either of them have been bitten while playing over there.

I never knew what I had been missing from wearing glasses all those years.  I told my wife I can now focus on a pinhead at 100 yards.  A bit of a stretch, no doubt.  But that all depends on your definition of a pinhead.

Thanks again for the exceptional care you guys provided!  I couldn't be happier.  I have recommended you guys to just about everyone I talked to this week."

“It was amazing to wake up and see the clock, at first I thought I was dreaming!”

- April Glover


“I had considered laser eye surgery for years. After hearing about the all-laser option (no blades touching the eyes), I had to check out Dr. Holzman. I am thrilled that I did. The procedure was simple and I had 20/15 eyesight the next morning! It has been a year since my surgery and my vision is better than I can ever remember it being - even with glasses and contacts.”

- Michael Chapman


“My experience at TLC Tysons was absolutely perfect. I felt very comfortable throughout the procedure and was incredibly happy to be seeing 20/20 before going home that day! I would highly recommend this surgery and Dr. Holzman did a great job!”

- Lisa Rush


“Wow! What a difference twenty minutes makes. Almost a year after my laser vision correction, I can't believe glasses are still a mainstream answer. They seem as old an answer as blood letting was during the civil war! Safe, precise, customized to your eyes and a major improvement to our most important sense. Don't wait to SEE for yourself - every moment of every day for the rest of your life.”

- Joel Ostrom, Army Officer


“I just wanted to say it has been over a year since I had vision correction surgery. I have had no problems since the procedure and I am 100% happy with the outcome. You came recommended by 2 other co-workers and I also pass this on to other co-workers that are thinking about having this procedure. I work as a firefighter for NDW Fire/Emergency Services Washington DC and this has made my life a lot easier. Again, thanks.”

- Tim McCoy


“Had I known the benefits earlier, I would have had the procedure done much sooner. Finally I can see unaided by glasses or contacts! It is so liberating, I have forgotten what it was like not to see! The staff and Dr. Holzman were terrific - very helpful and educating!”

- Kathy Zettl-Schaffer


“Having this surgery is like a whole new world for me. My eyes are healthy and clear. No more red, dry irritated eyes from contacts. I feel confident driving at night, and I can see better now than before I ever could with contacts or glasses. It's virtually painless, and a great investment in your future.”

- Virginia Brunner


“Walking out of the office after having the LASIK procedure was one of the most memorable moments of my life. I had tears in my eyes because I could see clearly for the first time in over 25 years. I went from having to put my glasses on to read the time on the clock beside my bed to being the person who can read road signs clearly from 100s of yards away. LASIK has positively changed my life forever.”

- Deborah Collins Kayser


“It was a difficult decision to undergo eye surgery since sight is such an important part of everyday living, I wanted no mistakes. Dr. Holzman's team at TLC  presented themselves as extremely professional before, during and after the surgery. I would recommend them to family and friends without hesitation.”

- Sandy Moreland


Dear Dr. Holzman:

This past November, I made the decision to place my eyesight in your hands, and I am pleased to report, 4 months later, that I could not have made a better choice. After almost 20 years of glasses and contacts, I am now free of that burden thanks to CustomVue™ Wavescan LASIK.

I am a firefighter with Fairfax County Fire & Rescue. I am a shift Captain at the busiest engine company in Fairfax County; the 60th busiest engine company in the United States in 2003! Every night at work, I would have to remove my contacts before going to bed, and then have to wear glasses on calls, or worse, go without glasses when I had to use my SCBA facepiece. Everything more that 20 or 30 feet away was fuzzy and undefined. Now, all I have to do is use some moisturizing drops a few times a day, and I can see like I did as a teenager!

I have recommended your practice to everyone I know who has problem with distance vision. Hopefully, some of them will overcome the same hesitation I had (of getting my eyes operated on) and take the plunge. I only wish I had made the decision sooner! Please feel free to add me to any list of satisfied patients you maintain, and I will be happy to talk to anyone asking to speak to former patients.

Thanks!!

I was so thrilled when I woke from my three hour nap and could see things I could never see without my contacts or glasses. You and your staff are extremely caring and attentive. My colleagues at work were thrilled with my vision success as well. I could not stop raving about you and my experience. I will forever refer all my friends and family interested in LASIK to you. Thank you.”

- Sandy Allenson

"Dr. Holzman and your entire staff were extremely professional and instilled the confidence that could only come from experience. I had the procedure yesterday and the results are remarkable!"

- Gary Mims


"I had been told by many people that I would not be a candidate for laser surgery. Dr. Holzman was confident that he could correct my vision, and not only did he do it, but I ended up with better than 20/20 vision! I couldn't be more thrilled to be free of my contact lenses and glasses. I look better and feel better, and just wish I could have had the surgery done years ago! It was the best money I've ever spent on myself."

- Susan Ohneiser


Dr. Holzman and Staff,

I'm sure you receive letters like this everyday, but I am so happy with my outcome that I feel compelled to write anyway.

I have been waiting several years to have LASIK because I thought the procedure could only get better with time. I am so glad that I did because I was able to have the Wavefront procedure. The procedure itself was actually easier that I had anticipated. The results so far are also beyond my expectations. Before I was 20/200, but at my follow up appointment with Dr. Sclar I was able to read the 20/15 line with ease! What I found to be so amazing about the procedure was how I saw my vision improving as the laser was working. I felt so great the day after that I went on my normal 3.5 mile run along country roads with views of the Appalachian Mountains. The only problem was that my run took longer than normal... I caught myself slowing down to take in the scenery I hadn't seen before!

Your staff from the beginning consultation (Maria and Dr. Vu-gia) were extremely helpful in explaining the entire procedure and answered all my questions. My visit to Dr. Sclar also was very informative.

After wearing eyeglasses for the past 23+ years, I am so happy with my new eyes. I am looking forward in a few weeks to playing in the pool with my kids without having to squint to see where they are. Thank you so much!

If you have any patients in the Frederick area who are thinking about the procedure, I would like to share my incredible experience and would be more than happy to speak with them.

Thanks again!

"This is so amazing, it's a miracle! I came all the way here from Baton Rouge, Louisiana to see the best doctor and I am so glad I made the right decision."

"My experience with Dr. Holzman at TLC Eye Centers was great! The entire staff was extremely friendly and professional. They were very helpful throughout the entire process and I've highly recommended them to everyone that's considered laser eye surgery."

"As a registered nurse, my expectations were very high. Dr. Holzman provided not only the best clinical care I could have asked for, but provided some of the best customer service I have ever experienced."

- Ellie Wood


"Absolutely the best. From start to finish, Dr. Holzman and his staff treat you professionally and let you know what is going on the whole time. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking to make a vision correction."

- Thomas Ignelzi


"I was sick of wearing glasses & contact, however I was a bit nervous about getting corrective surgery. The staff at TLC did a great job of explaining CustomVue™ with Intralase procedure that I got, let me know exactly what to expect and Dr. Holzman even called me personally to check up on me a few hours after the surgery. It has been a year since the surgery, and I see better than 20/20 in both eyes! I would highly recommend Dr. Holzman!"

- Jaclyn Miller

"It has been a great experience. The surgery is painless. I can now play soccer, basketball, scuba dive without the need to use a mask with corrective lenses. I can now buy any kind of sunglasses. In short, it has been an excellent decision. All personnel I dealt with were very professional."

- Pedro Enrique Orihuela


"I want to thank everyone there for making my laser surgery not only so successful, but such a wonderful experience. From my first consult to my post operative visits, everyone there has been so great. I look forward to each visit. I still can't believe that I see 20/20 without contact lenses or glasses. I feel like I have been given a gift to be able to see again. Dr. Holzman is amazing. His warmth, compassion and skill truly make him a great surgeon. I feel lucky to have had him do my procedure."

- Stacy Gorin


"I am so thrilled. This has been life changing!"

- Suzanne Pirko


"Thank you for your professionalism & service. I had my surgery on both eyes last Thursday and was seeing 20/15 on Friday morning! All of the doctors who examined me, and particularly Dr. Holzman, who performed the surgery & immediate follow-up, were courteous, kind, efficient, and professional. Also, everyone on the staff was friendly, professional, helpful, and made the experience enjoyable instead of stressful. I would highly recommend Dr. Holzman in Tysons to all of my friends & associates!"

-  Bob Adamson


"The obvious effort of both staff and physician made the experience enlightening and comfortable. After 40 years of corrective lenses it is wonderful to see clearly again."

- Timothy Kandel


"I am so thrilled! This is a whole new world - I feel young again."

- JoAnn McCann


"It's been a month now and I continue to be over-joyed with the results of my procedure... 20/20 vision in each eye! You can't fully realize the hassle and inconvenience of contact lenses until you're no longer dependent on them. I'm now free to enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle (I.e. water-skiing, mountain-biking, basketball) without worrying about a contact lens popping out or becoming irritated. I highly recommend TLC Laser Eye Centers for anyone who's ready to experience normal vision without the trouble of glasses/contacts. Dr. Holzman and his friendly staff really took care of me!"

- Michael Erickson


"I just wanted to say thank you for doing such an outstanding job on my LASIK surgery this past Tuesday. My vision was so bad before ( for 30 years!) and now I can see almost perfectly- I couldn't be more thrilled. I didn't have a bit of pain or discomfort afterwards, so that was a relief as well.Your expertise as a surgeon is very evident. I would also like to say that your staff, Dr. Vu-Gia , Karen, and the other patient consultant were exceptional to work with - very professional, friendly and helpful. Everyone there tried to help me feel relaxed and comfortable (even though I was scared to death!).

I really enjoyed working with you and I will highly recommend you to many friends and family who are interested in LASIK."
