Lasik Eye Surgery

Dr. Kahan and his staff invite a TLC Laser eye care Vision Consultant to visit our office once every 3 months for our interested patients to receive a free Lasik Pre-Evaluation. The consultant carefully screens lasik patients to be certain they are suitable for the procedure. Lasik safely corrects vision problems, such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Lasik takes less than 10 minutes and is performed on an out-patient basis with almost immediate improvement of vision.

Dr. Kahan and staff were number 1 in Massachusetts last year for LASIK referrals to TLC of Waltham. We work directly with TLC of Waltham for all your follow up visits and needs. Please feel free to contact our office to set up an appointment today or with any question you may have.
