Enhancement evaluation update

posted Feb 1, 2012, 7:03 PM by Jen Weigel   [ updated Feb 2, 2012, 5:24 AM ]
If you were ever in need of sending your patient back to TLC Tysons Corner for an enhancement evaluation, take note of two recent changes to our enhancement evaluation process:

1.  There is a $60 enhancement evaluation fee.

2.  Enhancement evaluation appointments will not be available until April 2012.

Advising your patients of these two important details will help everyone involved - you, your patient, and us.

The same qualification criteria that we use for primary laser vision correction apply to an enhancement.  If you ever have questions as to whether or not your patient is ready for an enhancement evaluation, please fax your chart notes to us, and I would be more than happy to review them with you.

I recently wrote a blog post about why we sometimes choose to do PRK enhancements instead of lifting the flap, depending on the flap appearance and years out from primary surgery.  - jw
