Dr. Wang and his staff exceeded my expectations in every way. Their professionalism and genuine care were evident from the first visit and remain consistent as I progress through follow up care. They were patient with my questions and demonstrated an expertise graced with compassion. I offer my highest recommendations - along with my gratitude.

I had a great experience with my LASIK procedure. Dr. Wang and his staff were wonderful. He explained exactly what was happening during each step of the procedure and what to expect afterwards. He prayed with me before the procedure and checked on me that evening. My vision was already 20/20 the next day. I wish I would’ve had it done years ago!

I had Lasik done 5 months ago and am still wishing I would’ve known about it earlier! It’s so nice not to have to worry about keeping up with my glasses or contacts. Dr. Wang and his office staff were amazing and helpful throughout the whole process. I also love that he prays with you before the procedure! Thank you Dr. Wang!!

I had my Lasic done three months ago by Dr. Wang and it has been life changing. I am 28 years old and have worn glasses since 3rd grade. I was always told that due to my astigmatisms and far sightedness I would not be considered a candidate and it couldn't be done by many optometrist. Dr. Wang and his staff made it possible and I haven't had any issues. His staff is very helpful and kind and professional. I can't thank them enough for making it possible. I highly recommend having it done it's painless and worth every penny.

Comprehensive exam by technicians and optometrist, but I drove 2 hrs. for a consultation with Dr. Wang. I never spoke with either Dr. Wang or his associate ophthalmologist. Instead I had a consultation with a surgery consultant, aka sales person. I felt like I was in a time share presentation given discounts based on referrals to a presentation. I have no doubt Dr. Wang is very good, but I don’t feel the tactics are ethical. Very disappointed. Charged $198 plus insurance for service I could have gotten at home for much less. Have a friend who was considering a consultation, but she won’t waste her time now.

I had an amazing experience here. I thought this is something I would never do. I would be too nervous. I went on a limb and walked in. Not nervous at all. The staff made this feel like an everyday thing, very light and high spirits. I have been and will continue to recommend Wang Vision Institute.

I was very scared of getting laser eye surgery, but was still wanting to get corrected vision. I was getting tired of not being able to see without glasses. I went to one of Dr Wang’s free seminars and was told about the different types that his office offers. I really wanted to get the SMILE surgery as that would be a smaller cut on my eye. I went to his office and was told that I was a candidate to get the SMILE surgery!!! I got the surgery done in August of 2020 and have no regrets getting it. I still have to wear readers as I was already starting to get progressive lenses, but that was no surprise as I was also told by them that I would still have to wear readers. I’m now 20/20!!! I was still scared getting the surgery but all of the staff there was so nice and kept me calm. The people that helped Dr Wang in the surgery area were wonderful!!

I elected to undergo the Smile procedure at Wang Vision and requested Dr. Wang to do the surgery. I was very happy from the moment I had a very thorough free consulation until the end of surgery. Dr Wang and his team were very helpful and answered all my concerns upfront and made me feel ready for the surgery. This was my biggest fear and I had my doubts leading up to the big day but the tech James and Dr Wang made me feel comfortable during the Smile procedure. I am so happy I made the decision to do this and I was able to see 20/20 without wearing glasses/contacts after 25 years. Thank you Wang Vision for your incredible work and helping my vision!

I was diagnosed with cataracts at another vision center in Chattanooga, and the staff there was extremely "hard sell" about getting in to their surgery center. I went to Wang Vision Institute for a second opinion and was very impressed. Exams, testing, and diagnosis were all very professional; the options were laid out before me, including detailed pricing. I was then allowed to take time to make my decision. I decided on the multifocal lens replacement in both eyes and have not regretted this decision. Surgery and follow up exams have been great, and my vision post-surgery is better than 20-20! I highly recommend Wang vision Center! Worth the trip from outside Nashville.

I just left my follow up appointment after cataract surgery at Wang Vision and I am already encouraging family members with early cataract problems to follow my lead. I got the new Vivity lens and less than 24 hours after surgery my vision is already 20/25 and still improving. Dr. Frenkel completed my surgery and he is a very confidence inspiring young doctor. He and Dr. Wang are also supported by an excellent staff. The entire process instilled great confidence in me and the results have so far been spectacular.

Could not be more pleased with the outcome of each eye surgery and the replacement multi-focal lens (Forever Young). I also had the YAG procedures for both eyes, and I am seeing 20/20 both eyes! Dr Wang and his entire staff are very professional and compassionate.

State of the art equipment, comprehensive eye exam on first visit, subsequent cataract surgery using laser and new trifocal lens implantation resulted in 20/20 vision by next day postop. Personal and compassionate care.

Two cataract surgeries were flawless. Dr. Wang and his staff walked me through the process and answered all my questions. Dr. Wang replaced the lenses in my eyes with corrective lenses, so now can see at distance without glasses for the first time in 60 years. Amazing. Highly recommended.
