On Tuesday, July 28, 2015, a good crowd of devoted Affiliates did not let a terrible rainstorm prevent them from attending the first-ever CE event at TLC Tysons Corner.  It was raining so hard that it was hard to even see the cars in the parking lot from the office!

Dr. Holzman reprised his lecture on Corneal Inlays which was a timely topic given that the KARMA inlay had just gotten FDA approval for use in correcting presbyopia.  The disc is implanted into the non-dominant eye of patients and uses the pinhole effect to provide near vision without compromising distance vision.  Information on how TLC will provide this service is pending.  Stay tuned for more information, likely no sooner than Q1 2016.

Special guests include TLC COO Ellen-Jo Boschert and TLC RD Richard Habib.

Dr. Woo and JoAnne did a lot of the planning for this event, and it was certainly a success.  Due to geographical constraints, Affiliates in Prince William County and westward are not always able to make it out to Tysons for CE events, so it was nice to have an event closer to these important doctors.  - jw
