A new eye treatment called LASIK (that is, laser in-situ keratomileusis) could mean your freedom from eyeglasses when you work, drive, read the clock, play sports, watch TV, you name it. Through our affiliation with TLC Vision of Columbus, Ohio, we can determine if you are a candidate for LASIK, and if so, we can arrange for you to meet with doctors there to reshape the surface of your eye using a laser, so that images focus more clearly. The result can be a dramatic improvement in your lifestyle.

The success of LASIK depends mainly on your eyes. You may be a good candidate for LASIK if your vision is stable, and you have myopia (nearsightedness) or farsightedness with or without astigmatism (irregular curvature of the cornea), and you have no other eye problems.

LASIK is performed as an outpatient procedure in the comfort and convenience of the TLC Laser Eye Centers offices. The entire procedure takes less than 15 minutes. Many patients see a dramatic improvement in their vision within the first day. For others, vision may be blurry and fluctuate for several weeks. Most patients return to their normal activities within a day or two.

Before having LASIK, most of our patients couldn't imagine waking up in the morning and seeing the alarm clock without glasses. They never dreamed they'd be able to drive a car, watch a movie or enjoy sports such as swimming and skiing without contact lenses. Since they were children, this dependence on glasses and contacts has shaped their lives, memories and the way they felt about themselves.

Now, these same patients are pursuing life with new confidence, enthusiasm and ease thanks to LASIK. This remarkable procedure takes only a few minutes to perform, but can have a tremendous impact on your life.

One of TLC’s satisfied clients is champion golfer Tiger Woods. Tiger was a -11 prior to his LASIK surgery, which is in the worst one percent of those with nearsightedness. Prior to LASIK surgery, without his glasses or contacts, he would not have even been able to see the ball on the tee.

Hundreds of professionals have selected TLC Laser Eye Centers when they wanted to have their vision corrected. They chose TLC because of our highly experienced, extensively trained doctors -- and because of our commitment to achieving the best possible results for our patients.
