Effective Saturday, March 21, 2020, all TLC Centers will be closed due to COVID-19 pandemic.  We hope to resume normal patient care on Monday, April 13, 2020. 

In the meantime, we are still available for essential post-op visits (defined below), and we will be in the office periodically to help your patients with refill requests and prior authorizations to prepare for future procedures.  Please contact your Clinical Director for case of emergency so that patient care at a TLC center can be arranged.

Essential post-op visits have been defined as the following:

LASIK = 1 day and 1 week post-op, and

PRK = 1 day, 4-5 day, and 2 week post-op.

If you are not able to provide these services for your patient that recently had surgery, TLC Clinical Directors will complete these visits with your patient.  Please coordinate details with your respective Clinical Directors.  We will/you can resume post-op care when TLC is able to return to normal office hours.

TLC has contacted all patients having surgery in the two weeks prior to our temporary closure.  A general email was sent out to all patients that have had surgery with TLC to update them on our status.  Two email updates were sent to local Affiliates with similar information as well. 

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
