Hale Vision website comes back to life.

After a two year absence, the HaleVision website is back on the internet.  A lot has happened in that period and we have some catching up to do.  We’ll start with the news that two years ago Hale Vision became TLC Milwaukee after joining The Laser Centers organization, an international group of vision correction centers.  This offers our patients some advantages that I could never provide as a solo practitioner.  The first advantage is the access to the latest technology which we had installed in the office in late 2015.  We will discuss this technology in more detail in future posts but you can visit our updated website for immediate information.  Second, TLC offers a Lifetime Commitment to their patients.  This means that as long as you continue the proper follow-up after the procedure, you will be eligible for touch-up procedures at no cost in the future, with a few medical disqualifications.  Thirdly, TLC has locations spread across the US and Canada which can become your new home base in case you need to change location in the future.

Stayed tune for more updates.
