Several friends have used TLC, Dr. Louis Probst in westchester. All excellent reviews w/ no issues.

As you've seen the commercials, Woods used TLC as well, no idea which doctor though.

Most all the guys I know who went there are downtown people, so he must be doing something right. Think my last friend's total ran around $4,200, though this isn't something i'd bargain hunt for...

I'm pretty sure she was able to get her money back but I'll ask her and double check.

Figured I'd post my questions in here instead. Which lasik procedure are you getting done Mark, the one that's strictly the laser, or the one where they cut the flap then use the laser?

from a physicians perspective, go with someone that has a large volume, the more procedures an opthamologist does, the better he is at it, and the better he will be if for any reason any complications arise, these are your eyes man, dont mess around with price or distance, make sure you go to the best

My Brother and Wife got it done In Chicago on Touhy and Western. I think Its call Your Eyes or something like that. Place seems kinda small and on a busy street. They Dished out cash for the lazer and are very happy. They said its the best investment ever made.
