This changed my life. My livelihood depends on my eyes, and I chose Wang Vision because of their reputability. I went in for a consult, and although I was not a candidate for Lasik, I was still a candidate for SMILE. I was fortunate enough to get my procedure done on the same day! I was pretty nervous about starting the procedure, but the staff was amazing and made me feel so comfortable and relaxed (as I could be lol). The procedure was quick, and Dr. Wang commanded so much confidence and care, there was little for me to worry about. The techs during the procedure were very helpful in coaching me through the process too! I'm so glad I chose Wang Vision since it is the only institute in the state that offers the SMILE procedure that I needed, I didn't need to be referred anywhere else. Post procedure, it was much more comfortable than others' experience with Lasik, and I am already seeing 20/20 after four days. I highly recommend SMILE if you are a candidate! I would only trust my visi

It is so nice to be able to wake up and see my clock in the morning. My eye sight is better now than I ever remember being able to see before. Just looking at the sky and the clouds is so amazing. It’s such a blessing to be able to finally see all of Gods wonderful details when I am outside hiking, fishing, and hunting. Everyone at the Wang Vision Institute was very nice and understanding. I was nervous coming in, but each individual was very reassuring and explained everything that was being done and going to be done throughout the procedure and recovery. I highly recommend getting the Lasik eye surgery at their institute.

I had a great experience with 3D Smile with Wang Vision. The staff was always friendly. They're very good about not having a long wait time. My operation was so smooth with no eye pain. About 30 seconds per eye. Before my procedure, my vision was so terrible, I couldn't even see the big E on the screen. My vision is now 20/15 which I am so pleased. I would've been happy with 20/20! Overall, I recommend Dr Ming Wang with anyone considering lasik!

Dr. Wang and his staff were amazing. They have made me feel very comfortable and important every time I've been there. I came in for a consultation and was told that LASIK wouldn't completely give me all my vision back, because my eyes were so bad. I decided to do it anyway and prayed that God would give me back my full vision. Dr. Wang did my surgery and he also prayed with me before he performed the surgery which really impressed me and made me feel more comfortable during the surgery. After my surgery, I showed up for my follow-up appointment, when they did my vision test I was able to read 20/20 with no help!! I walked out of the office in tears that day, so humbled that God answered my prayers and used a great surgeon to do it. I have worn glasses since I was eight and every year they have had to make my prescription stronger, when I went in my eyes were so bad could only see things that were right in front of my face (my prescription was -7.25) now I'm thankful to be able to say

I had extremely poor vision and did not think I would be a candidate for Lasik. Wang Vision Institute tested and corrected my eyesight in a single afternoon. Not only was the procedure quick, but it was painless. They have precautions in place for Covid. Recovery was easy. I consider myself very fortunate to have had Dr. Ming Wang himself work on my eyes. I could never thank him enough for giving me the ability to see. Wang Vision Institute is in the business of performing miracles every day, so you’d think their staff would just go along with the motions, but you’d be wrong. They were all so caring and passionate about their work, from Suzanne who scheduled my appointment to Beth who remembered me three weeks later. I felt a personal connection with each and every member of their team. If you’re on the fence, because you think your vision is too terrible, I urge you to schedule a consultation. The fact that you are within reach of a pioneering eye surgeon of Dr. Ming Wang’s caliber sh

Recently received LASIK surgery from Wang Vision Institutes and I couldn't be happier with the results. Within 24 hours I could see all the telephone towers on the Nashville horizon in exquisite detail, and read the smallest words on the furthest skyscrapers. My night vision has been surprisingly unaffected as well! Got in an out in one single day, spent 5 hours from start to finish. Would highly recommend

I was nervous about the process and going through surgery. I am so very grateful for the team at Wang Vision Institute! They walked me through the process and made everything easy. My recovery was wonderful and exactly what they prepared me to expect. After one month, my eyes are perfect. Their team is professional, courteous and caring. Be sure and look for one of their educational webinars. Wonderful team.

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.
