Happy to report that our TLC Ultimate Makeover winner has had very successful laser vision correction. She is thrilled with her "new" eyes. We are very happy for her and for the opportunity in helping her down a new road in her life.

A new topical medication recently became available that makes treating herpetic eye infections much easier for patients. The name of the drug is Zirgan. It is used 5 times/day versus the older medication, Viroptic, which needs to be used 9x/day. Also, Zirgan does not require refrigeration whereas Viroptic needs to be kept cool between uses. Zirgan may also be beneficial for more than one type of herpetic corneal infection compared to the older medication. Certainly a welcome addition to our treatment options.

Baltimore Washington Eye Center has been chosen by The Learning Channel to provide Laser Vision Correction for their current Ultimate Makeover winner. I met her last week and filmed a segment of the show. She is farsighted and in need of glasses to drive. The plan is to perform LASIK at the end of the month. The staff and I are looking forward to being a part of her makeover. Will let you know how things go and when TLC will be airing the show.
