On Wednesday, June 24, 2015, Dr. Allyssa Nguyen had PRK with Dr. Holzman.  Dr. Nguyen has been a per diem staff doctor for TLC Tysons Corner and Gainesville for the past few years.  She has been a great help when extra coverage is needed!  

Dr. Nguyen was a tough cookie, easily powering through her initial PRK healing period and then reaching her 20/20 vision goals within a few weeks following the procedure.  Her brother came in August to see if he could qualify for surgery.  While he could have LASIK, he preferred PRK since his sister had done so well with the procedure.  He is sitting nicely at 20/20 also!  We get this type of situation a lot - a patient comes in requesting PRK because someone they know did well with the procedure.  Our current surgical volume is about 25% PRK and 75% LASIK.  - jw
