TLC Boston Visits TLC Tysons

On Friday, May 29, 2015, TLC Boston Clinical Director Dr. Kristen Brown and Medical Director Dr. Santiago Villazon visited our Center to learn more about our Alcon WaveLight laser platform.  

We have been lucky enough to enjoy this laser platform in Tysons for many years.  It's speed and multiple features allows a surgeon to truly customize a patient's treatment to provide the best results possible.  Most all other TLC Centers have relied primarily on the AMO Visx laser platform, but over the next year or so, all will convert over the Alcon WaveLight laser platform.  

Dr. Holzman was a key contributor in the decision-making process for this major technological shift for all TLC Centers.  His results and professional opinions on the laser showed that it would be a reliable workhorse platform for all TLC Centers.  Great job, Dr. Holzman!

Drs. Brown and Villazon spent the entire day with us.  They were out of bed at 4 a.m. to catch the first flight out of Boston at yawn a.m.  The entire day was full of inquisitive questions about how to incorporate the laser platform into their Center.  I learned so much from each of them also.  Drs. Brown and Villazon have been a team since LASIK first started.  Wow!  Awesome!  We ended the day with a quick dinner before I dropped them back off at IAD for their 10 p.m. flight back home.  I think they were tucked back into their own beds shortly after midnight.  What dedication!  - jw
