Dear Affiliate Doctor,

 

For the past twenty years, TLC Laser Eye Centers has been your trusted source for Laser Vision Correction.  We have endeavored to provide excellence in refractive surgery care with the co-management model that has benefited many of your practices.  Additionally, TLC has been a proven supporter of the optometric profession with program sponsorships at the national, state, and local levels.

 

As the refractive field advances, it is only logical that we upgrade our refractive technologies and expand our professional service offerings.  To that end, we have made key technology changes in our Tysons Corner Center.  Starting in May 2013, we have offered iFS IntraLase technology for the faster creation of more stable LASIK flaps.  In August 2013, have begun to use the newest Allegretto laser, the EX500, which will allow for quicker and more precise ablation profiles.  TLC Tysons Corner is the first LASIK Center inVirginia to offer this exceptional technology.

 

This month, we will also expand our offered services to include implantable contact lenses, (ICL’s). This will enable us to offer a refractive solution to those patients who are not deemed as LASIK or PRK candidates.  Dr. Jonathan Solomon, Medical Director of Solomon Eye Physicians and Surgeons, will be the surgeon for ICL’s, which will take place at hisBowie location.  Our elective ICL (ie, Visian ICL) program will be very similar to our current LASIK/PRK offerings.  Patients will work directly with TLC Tysons Corner staff to prepare for the procedure which will be performed by Dr. Solomon.  As always, we will work with you to ensure that you are communicated with throughout the process and that your patient is seen by you for pre and post op visits.

 

The next installment of our Continuing Education Series will feature Dr. Solomon discussing cataract surgery and ICLs on Monday, September 23, 2013, at 6:30 p.m.   An official invitation should be forthcoming.  Also, over the upcoming weeks, please be on the look out for more information, both for your office and your patients.  In the meantime, please feel free to contact either of your key representatives for these new clinical programs:

 

Joan Reich, Senior Professional Relations Consultant        joan.reich@tlcvision.com

Nicole Lowry, Professional Relations Consultant           nicole.lowry@tlcvison.com

Dr. Jen Weigel, Clinical Director                                    jen.weigel@tlcvision.com

 

In a competitive market like our region, we know that you have many options when referring your patients for surgical care.  We look forward to earning your trust and referrals for our  ICL program.

 

Sincerely,

 

Kate
