Our VISX and iFS lasers bid us farewell on this day.

As long-time Affiliates recall, Dr. Holzman has for many years had two laser platforms - the VISX and the WaveLight - to utilize for patient treatments.  However, over the past few years, he has gravitated more and more toward the WaveLight system as his workhorse laser.  It's done a fabulous job in helping our LVC patients.  Recently, TLC decided to change all of it's laser centers over to WaveLight.  The entire corporation changed to a laser platform that we'd be using all the while in Tysons!  Wow!  So awesome!  

Part of the change was that we had to let our VISX and iFS lasers go.  I really, really hope they were recycled and not just thrown away.  You know how much I love to recycle!  You can even see my recycling bin in the picture. - jw
