Athletes’ Careers

As a professional athlete, your vision needs to be crystal clear. LASIK surgeon Dr. Andrew E. Holzman  in Washington, D.C., has helped thousands of patients, including select professional athletes, achieve outstanding vision. MLB catcher  Wilson Ramos  needs to be able to focus on baseballs traveling upwards of 100 miles per hour. Professional pitchers Craig Stammen  and John Lannon  need to see fine detail in order to make the correct pitch location. Dr. Holzman provided the vision correction necessary to support successful careers for these players. When NFL star quarterback Kirk Cousins noticed his eyesight could be better, he trusted Dr. Holzman to give him a competitive edge by significantly improving his vision with LASIK surgery.

My name is Kirk Cousins, quarterback for the Washington Redskins and I’m a patient of Dr. Holzman’s and the TLC LASIK center.  I had LASIK surgery … They did an outstanding job with me and my fiancee and we’re both seeing great.  Thank you.
