This place gave us a complimentary consult and same day treatment, which was great considering I work as a welder and can’t wear my glasses at work - so I was able to plan this around our annual shut down. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, even when things got a little difficult with the HSA card. We got there about 15 minutes early and got called back right away, exam was fast and easy, took a few minutes for the doctor to come back, he was friendly and examined me quickly, answering all of our questions thoroughly and without making us feel any type of way about them, the financial coordinator took a while to come in, but was helpful one he got in there and explained the pricing for us, even helped us apply for financing. The front helped us deal with HSA card issues, worked with my night shift schedule, and I even checked in on Facebook and got my girlfriend a Starbucks gift card!The only complaint about that process is some of the things they "upsold" us on - I didn’t feel like gave the best explanation. The eyelid cleaning - was a HORRIBLE experience and I wouldn’t ever get that or recommend it to anyone. I felt like it was a waste of money, didn’t do much, but also wasn’t fully explained just recommended/told I had to get. The lady who did it cleaned them with a brush, which was fine, but then used the bright light (without telling me it would be a bright light, right after my eyes were dilated) and shoved it into my eye socket, even when I pulled back and told her it was really tough her response "yeah it’s a little uncomfortable" with a laugh - just felt like she didn’t truly know how to do it right and caused a lot of pain before I even had the procedure. I asked for the Valium beforehand/told her they should give it before that as I was already anxious - she just laughed and said I get it after. My girlfriend even went home and watched some videos on the treatment and says that is NOT how the lady did it - for $650 an eye I feel like that should’ve been a better experience.I also think they could’ve explained the SMILE procedure itself a little better and how the flow would go - I was anxious about the laser, but not being able to move at all for thirty seconds sent my anxiety and blood pressure skyrocketing - and I feel I would’ve been better prepared if they told me ahead of time what to expect. I also got the little tear duct plugs they recommend - and then at the follow up the next day had to have one taken out, just didn’t make sense, if they were that needed why was it removed next day, but the rest stay for 3-4 months.Overall I had a good experience and I would do it again without question. My vision was improved that day, and other than a little blurriness I’m able to see without corrective lenses for the first time in my life - and I had HORRIBLE vision. I just wish they had explained a little more and helped me feel fully confident in everything I paid for. To anyone wanting to get it done - they were great, I wouldn’t personally recommend the eyelid cleaning - BUT the staff was amazing and the procedure has changed my life. More

I had SMILE in Jan 2022. It went really well. I am used to be extremely near sighted, but after surgery, my eye sight was instantly better. It’s almost three weeks later, my eyes feel so normal and my eyesight is pretty good as well. Thank you for all the technicians and surgeon. The surgery itself is painless and really quick. More

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 vision with Wang Vision Institute. More

Dr. Wang and his staff are the best around. They all meet you with a smile and a warm handshake.I have worn glasses (very strong prescription) since I was a year old. I have been going to doctors my whole life and no one had a solution for my vision. I even went to a few lasik "doctors" and felt like I was laughed right out of their office.Then a Wang Institute seminar came across my Facebook and I decided to go and find out if he had anything for me.He was so respectful and after the thorough eye exam he informed me that he could help me. I cried.Its amazing after all these years, I can see, no more heavy, nose crushing glasses on this face.Dr. Wang is truly a gift from God.I can’t thank him enough and praise the Lord for bringing him into my life.
