Dr. Coleman not only is an attentive, knowledgeable physician, the entire staff at the Eye Institute appears to genuinely care that your visit is the best that it can be. My multi focal lens implants were a great decision. I highly recommend them and Dr. Coleman for the surgery.

Dr. Wyche T. Coleman and his entire staff are the best refractive surgery and ophthalmology team in the entire Shreveport-Bossier Area! I recently underwent the newest form of refractive surgery called "Smile." They have the most modern technology and the friendliest staff I have ever experienced. They took the time to explain every aspect of refractive surgery to me, answered all of my questions and made me feel like their most valued customer. His Refractive Surgery Coordinator, Inka Oglesby, even came to work on her day off to assist Dr. Coleman during my surgery. I am forever thankful for Dr. Coleman and his staff. I highly recommend him to anyone considering any type of refractive surgery!

I had SMILE in both eyes last week. This week, I am astonished and excited to have 20/15 vision. There was relatively no pain. It truly a miraculous procedure. So many thinks to Dr. Coleman! Trust him with your care. I did, and I am so pleased that I did!

Dr Coleman was great. Cataract surgery with astigmatism correction and seeing 20/15! First time without glasses in 40 years. Dr Coleman was pleasant, explained well and took away my doubts. His staff both in office and at surgery were A+. Pilots at Springhill love him. Thanks!

Had lasik done a little over 2 years ago. Absolutely fantastic experience. It’s no wonder Dr. Coleman is a titan of the industry. Great staff that is very knowledgeable. You’d be crazy to go anywhere else. 5 stars isn’t enough.

I have been dependent on glasses or contacts since I was 5 years old. My contacts had to be custom manufactured due to very high astigmatism and nearsightedness. I could not function without glasses or contacts. I went to see Dr. Coleman about laser correction but he recommended lens replacement (cataract surgery) using a Toric implant. Not only did he improve my sight, I had 20/15 vision the day after surgery. I can't recommend Dr Coleman and his team enough.

Dr. Coleman performed Blepharoplasty surgery on my eyelids in February. As a result my peripheral vision is greatly improved, and I love the appearance of my eyes now. My expected recovery time was two months, but it did not take nearly that long. I received excellent care from Dr. Coleman, Shonda and all the staff at the WK Eye Institute. I have been extremely happy with the results of this surgery. Should you ever need this surgery I highly recommend you give Dr. Coleman a call.

Dr. Coleman removed my cataracts and inserted Torec lenses as well as corrected my severe astigmatism with laser surgery and implanted stints for my glaucoma. The results have been life changing for me. My vision is so much improved and my eye pressure is dramatically lower. Dr. Coleman was so personable and easy to talk to and he took plenty of time to answer all of my questions. I am very happy with my outcome.

Removed cataracts from both eyes. I had previous Lasik surgery so needed extra step which he could perform. Very happy with results.

I got the SMILE procedure done with Dr. Coleman and he was very pleasant to work with. He is very knowledgeable and makes sure to take the time to answer any of your questions. Even during the procedure, he was explaining everything he was doing and asking if I had any questions. I highly recommend Dr. Coleman!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Coleman. He's a great Ophthalmologist and his personality compliments him as well. He recently removed my cataracts and implanted lens using the LenSx Laser to completely customize my vision. It's such a drastic improvement instantaneously how vivid colors are now perceived !

Coleman and his team were excellent!! Coleman is to the point, informative, no bull sh#%! Has common sense and can fix anything quickly if a problem arises. Inka was extremely comforting and educational throughout the entire process. Guess what. I can see perfectly now! I’m telling everyone they would be a fool not to go see Coleman and his team!! Sincerely, a lasik/PRK patient.

Excellent across the board: professional, friendly, kind & everything was handled with ease which made my confidence level with them the highest you can hope for. Traveled from Texas for my procedure because of Dr Coleman and his entire staff. THANK YOU!

Dr. Coleman and his staff were excellent! I scheduled an appointment on a Thursday and had LASIX done the following Tuesday. The staff was so professional and efficient in their office and on surgery day. Mrs. Inka and Dr. Coleman made sure I was comfortable and had all of my questions answered. Surgery day went so smoothly and I can already see much better! I will definitely be returning and sending all of my family members in his direction!

I had RK surgery in the 1980’s which I thought limited my possibilty to have cataract surgery, “I was Wrong”. His surgery was painless, percise and worth every dollar. Went into surgery with very poor vision, came out with 20/15 in one eye and 20/20 in other eye. 1st time in 15 years I can see to shoot again ! This can actually change your life! Thanks

I went in to see about lasik surgery only to find out I had cataracts . He explained my options and we decided to have surgery to implant new lenses in both eyes, i now have 20/20 vision and I'm very happy with the results. Thanks Dr. Coleman
