iFS IntraLase Upgrade

From the desk of Todd Jameson:

Dear Doctor,

I hope this email finds you well.  I wanted to share some exciting news
regarding TLC Rockville.  As part of TLC's desire to remain a leader in
LASIK and cutting-edge technology, I am pleased to announce we have
recently upgraded our IntraLase to the latest generation iFS model.  Dr.
Holzman has successfully treated patients with the iFS model the last
two surgery days and absolutely raves about the benefits of the upgrade.
We are very happy to offer this new technology to you and your patients.

Associated with the upgrade will be a small price increase to the
patient of $55 per eye, however, we will continue to honor 10% off of
the new customary fee of $5,100 for most insurance plans.

The information at provides the
best overview of iFS benefits compared to older IntraLase models.  These
are among the more notable take-home points:

*       Faster Flap Creation (can be less than 10 sec, vs. 18+ sec for our last IntraLase)
*       Elliptical Flap Option (maximizes stromal bed exposure, allows wider hinge angle)
*       Inverted Bevel-In Sidecut (improved biomechanical stability)
*       Tighter Spot Separation (smoother stromal beds, easier flap lifts)
*       Lower Energy Per Pulse (may reduce inflammation)

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Best Regards,
