I just got my procedure done by Dr. Holzman.  Talk about better than expected!  Doc made it super comforting!!  He prepped me in such away that it calmed all nerves going into the procedure.  He even follows up personally the same night.  Recommending him to everyone I know who wants to get laser vision.

My procedure at TLC was quick and easy. I originally got LASIK to do away with the trouble of contacts and glasses, but now I'm seeing even better than I was before with corrective lenses. I cannot believe how easy it was, and I wish I had done it sooner. I highly recommend Dr. Holzman and the entire TLC staff, who answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable. It really did change my life.
