Hi. I'm Courtney, and I'm 29, and I actually never realized how bad my vision was until I went to the eye doctor and had my first pair of glasses and I realized that I have freckles, and that's when I realized, okay, I couldn't escape, that I had to wear glasses or contacts. So I started with contacts, and it was a lot. It was expensive, and I was constantly changing them, and of course, I couldn't sleep in them. So I had thought about Lasik for a long time. My eyes and my vision are one of the most precious things I have, so I checked out a lot of places, and I mean like Google and I were BFF for the longest time, and I came across TLC, and I fell in love with the staff. Everybody just treated me like family. Like I would leave here and I'd have this big smile on my face even though I was coming from a doctor's appointment. I felt really good. People were so friendly and so nice, and I was feeling really confident after I had a consultation, and I wasn't worried about price. There's a billion places out there that will do, will tell you they'll do Lasik, but I knew that I wanted the best. And so the day of the surgery I was actually excited because I couldn't believe I was going to be able to see the E. It sounds so simple, but, you know, the E on the vision chart, which like everybody can see. No, I never could see the E. So my expectations weren't there. I just really wanted to be able to see the E, you know, or see the clock on the wall. So I was really excited about it, and I got there that day and Dr. Holzman was just amazing. From the minute he walked into the room, he was just so confident. He knew his stuff. Every question that I had for him, he never hesitated once. It was just like it rolled off the tip of his tongue, and he knew his stuff, and he was confident, but he was also very reassuring. And I remember even during the surgery, he was just checking in like, "How you doing? Do you need anything? You good?" I'm like, "No, I'm good." And he would just talk me through what was going on. It was super quick. I felt like, it was like by the time I sat in the chair, by the time I got up, it was like 10 minutes, and actually getting up out of the chair, I mean it was a little bit fuzzy, but I could see. I could see everything in the room, and later that night I was good to go. I couldn't believe it. After the surgery I was with somebody, we were driving, and they were like, "Oh, what's that sign say?" And I was like, "Oh, it says so and so and so." And I was like, oh my gosh. That was me. I read that. I could see that. Now I know why they actually call this place TLC, because there's nowhere else you're going to get the treatment, the same tender loving care, as here.
