Serving patients seeking LASIK and other laser vision correction procedures in Asheville and the surrounding area

TLC Laser Eye Centers of Asheville offers conventional, Custom and Bladeless LASIK. Conventional LASIK is the most common type of laser vision correction and has proven to be extremely effective for the correction of conventional vision errors.

Custom LASIK utilizes wavefront-guided technology and is the procedure of choice for many patients. The procedure makes use of the eye’s curvature, which is like a fingerprint in the sense that it is unique to each person. During Custom LASIK, a precise measure of this “fingerprint” is taken, and a laser beam is then used to correct each eye.

TLC Asheville is one of the few centers in North Carolina to offer Bladeless LASIK, in which a computer-guided laser is used to create the corneal flap. Bladeless LASIK is a 100-percent blade-free LASIK experience as the laser eliminates the need for a handheld microkeratome (blade). Drs. H. Keith Riddle Jr., Jaduan Alison, Randal J. Rabon and Jacob Montgomery, Jr., and the TLC Laser Eye Center staff meticulously evaluate each patient to determine the best option for laser vision correction surgery.

To determine if you are a candidate for Bladeless LASIK, contact TLC Laser Eye Centers – Asheville at (866) 326-2010 to schedule a free LASIK evaluation, or book online at www.TLCVision.com. Discuss all aspects of treatment including the consultation and treatment process, and the cost of LASIK and associated financing options.
