Amazing results and an incredible experience. As an EMS Helicopter Pilot my vision directly affects the safety of my crew and the patients we carry. When I began noticing vision problems (cataracts) that were reaching the limit of what my glasses could correct I began looking for options. After speaking with several people in the medical field and other pilots, the clear choice (pun intended) was Wang Vision Institute. Time was of the essence because I was not going to be able to fly once I got the process started and they were able to get me in for an exam and scheduled my surgery almost immediately. I believe it was Scott that performed my initial exam and you couldn’t ask for a nicer guy. Very patient and willing to answer all of my questions. Most of which were “what does that thingy do?” After my initial assessment I met with Dr Zimmerman who explained all of their findings to me and made sure I understood my condition and what my options were. I did not feel that anyone tried to “up-sell” anything or get me to buy anything I didn’t want. As a mater of fact he recommended against the most costly option based on my needs. I knew exactly what I needed and what I was paying for. My lens replacement surgery was performed by Dr Guduru who was more than accommodating and worked with me on scheduling. To say I was nervous was an understatement. The entire staff at the eye surgery clinic put me at ease (the Valium may have helped). Dr Guduru did an excellent job on the surgery and I was amazed at the results only hours after the surgery when the sedative wore off. The worst part of the process was the wait between getting both eyes done. Less than 3 days after having my second eye done, my vision is better now than it has been at any point in my life (20/15). I know results can vary and it is a lot of money to spend but much like a divorce; eye surgery is expensive because it is worth it. More

I had a very good experience with getting the Smile procedure. It is 3 months after my procedure. I definitely did my research beforehand, and asked the doctor many questions, and he answered every one. The procedure itself was quick, (a few minutes per eye) and I did not feel any pain. Still a bit nerve-wracking, but the doctor talks you through it. Blurred vision the day of the procedure is normal. They say to keep your eyes closed as much as possible the rest of the day, and try to sleep. The first week of recovery was the most challenging because you have to put many different medicated drops in. But it’s worth it, I believe! The first day was the hardest, but every day gets progressively better afterwards. I had 20/20 vision the day after the procedure! Pretty amazing. But I was sensitive to light for a few days. I had the starburst affect on lights at night for a few weeks. But it got progressively better. And they did not ‘bribe’ me to leave a 5-star review! I truly had a great experience. My surgeon was Dr Jones. Optometrist was Dr. Zimmerman. More

I originally had LASIK back in 1999 and it was amazing but, just like the doctor shared, when I turned 45, my vision began to change. I always knew another enhancement was an option but this year I decided it was time.I first thought I would have the procedure done through my regular eye doctor (who offered vision enhancement procedures) but when they failed to call me back after numerous attempts to learn more, I decided not to trust my vision to someone who couldn’t even return a phone call. At that point, I decided to call WVI. I selected the WVI because I knew they were the best in town. When I called, they actually remembered that I had called the previous year to ask questions. It was the exact opposite experience. It was warm, friendly, and it inspired my trust and confidence.The initial examination was very thorough. After the exam I met with Jake Wysiadlowski, OD and he walked me through my options. I never knew there was so many! He made a recommendation and helped me make a decision on what would be best for me. I next met with Cameron Daniels, my Surgical Coordinator. Cameron walked me through the logistics and the pricing. At no point did I ever feel pushed or pressured to select the most expensive option. In fact, given my particular situation, they actually recommended one of the less expensive options. They worked with me to construct a plan that used both my HSA and my Limited Purpose FSA to cover the cost.Before the surgery, I had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Abhilash Guduru, my surgeon. Everyone along the way explained what to expect, set realistic expectations for my vision and the recovery, and made sure I had the opportunity to ask lots of questions.I arrived at the surgery center on the day of my procedure and everyone was super nice and friendly. The environment really put me at ease. Once again, everyone clearly articulated what to expect and gave me the opportunity to ask questions. I could not have been made to feel more comfortable during the time leading up to the procedure and during the procedure.The procedure did not take long and at no time did I experience even the slightest amount of pain. I was given clear instructions on how to care for my eyes during the few weeks after the surgery and I have been following their instructions exactly. I have had no issues or discomfort whatsoever. The evening after the surgery I was amazed at how my vision had been corrected and restored. When I went back the next morning for my follow-up appointment with Dr. Guduru, my vision had already been restored to 20/20. I could not be more pleased. I have already recommended the WVI to my wife and I will do so to anyone else contemplating vision enhancement surgery. I would give my team the highest marks in every category. To those who might be apprehensive, I would say that it was easy and painless and that the end result of seeing was well worth it and life changing. I put my glasses in a drawer and am now able to see so much better- especially at night and while driving. My experience and results have been exactly what I had hoped for. More

Wang vision institute is the epitome of professionalism and efficiency. From Dennis who used the newest technology to screen my eyes to Dr. Zimmerman who did my consultation and thoroughly reviewed my options, it was top notch. Dr. Jones did my surgery which resulted in 20/20 and 20/25 (better than perfect!) vision in my eyes. Dr. Jones also called me on a Sunday just to see how everything was going - I had zero complications. My post op checkup was more of the same with Cameron reviewing. My results and Dr. Jones meeting with me personally. More

I recently had LASIK surgery at Wang Vision Institute in November 2023 , and I cannot express how pleased I am with the results. From the moment I walked in for my consultation to the final follow-up appointment, the entire experience was exceptional. First and foremost, the staff at Wang Vision Institute were incredibly friendly and welcoming. They made me feel at ease and answered all of my questions with patience and professionalism. The level of care and attention to detail they provided gave me the confidence that I was in good hands. The surgeon, Dr. Abhilash, is a true expert in his field. He took the time to thoroughly examine my eyes and explained the procedure to me in a way that was easy to understand. I felt comfortable and confident in his ability to perform the surgery. The actual LASIK procedure itself was quick and painless. The staff made sure I was comfortable throughout the process and ensured that all of my concerns were addressed. Dr. Wang team worked seamlessly together, making the whole experience feel effortless. The results of the surgery have exceeded my expectations. I now have almost 20/20 vision for the first time in my life and it is truly life-changing. I can't believe I waited so long to have LASIK, but I am grateful to have found Wang Vision Institute. I would highly recommend Wang Vision Institute to anyone considering LASIK surgery. The expertise, care, and outstanding results speak for themselves. Thank you to Dr. Wang and his team, Dr Zimmerman , Dr Abhilash for giving me the gift of clear vision. You have made a positive impact on my life. More

I'd been considering getting LASIK for years when I finally decided to just go for the consultation and exam. After hearing about the SMILE procedure, choosing Wang Vision Institute was a no brainer. I'm not normally nervous about anything, but I was a little keyed up waiting for my exam and to find out if I was a good candidate. However, *everyone* I interacted with was so calm and friendly that it all felt normal and routine. **Cameron** is an amazing surgical counselor, who took the time to make sure I understood the commitment involved with the surgery. My technicians Scott, Kayla, James and especially **Amanda W.** helped me through every step of the process. (Amanda is so awesome - I felt like my eyes were getting a relaxing, warm spa treatment!) And Baileah did an excellent job coordinating payment and scheduling for my surgery and post-op follow ups. Dr. Zimmerman examined the current state of my eyesight and helped me understand exactly what was going to happen during the SMILE procedure. And I can't praise **Dr. Guduru** enough for his calm manner and precision that got me through the hardest part of the SMILE surgery with flying colors. Besides the outstanding staff, you can expect the exam day to be long because you can get your procedure done the same day if you are a good candidate. (There are complimentary snacks & water while you go through all the tests and exam.) And you do need someone to go with you so they can drive you home while you close/rest your eyes. I slept through the drive, the rest of the afternoon, and right into the night. By morning, my vision was significantly improved and by my first post-op, I was seeing 20/13 vision! It's really important to follow the post-surgery routine as closely as possible for your eyes to heal. I contribute both Dr. Guduru's skill and the post-surgery routine to my excellent recovery. It feels amazing to see better than even my contacts could correct and not need them or my glasses anymore! More

Dr. Wang and his staff performed corneal collagen cross-linking on both of my eyes. The experience was terrific start to finish. Dr. Wang, Dr. Connolly, Dr. Rock, Dr. Zimmerman, and ALL of the additional staff members are fantastic and caring. I felt that I was listened to and all my questions and concerns were addressed fully and compassionately. The only downside is that you have to be prepared to sit in the waiting room for a while before being called back for your appointment. But they do provide snacks and drinks for your wait time, lol. All-in-all, each of my visits has been a pleasure. More

I have found that Dr. Wang cares about your vision not only prior to surgery, but afterwards. His postoperative approach is amazing. If you have ANY issues Dr. Wang and his team will make sure you are well taken care of. You are not a "number" in his practice...you are an individual who is truly cared for. So, I am happy to say that I have great vision provided by the best doctor in the world who provides excellent medical and patient care! 10 years ago I had LASIK, and the doctor I used at the time performed the procedure with a blade prior to doing his adjustments. Dr. Wang's method is BLADELESS and there is no comparison. Bladeless surgery is amazing...no pain and is very precise. Thanks to Dr. Wang my eyes sight is better than it has been in a very long time. Not only are his methods superior, his entire staff ranks far above the norm--I place them in the superior range as well. Everyone was friendly, professional, caring, helpful, and they made you feel as though you were their only patient. As Mayor of Cheatham County, my days can be long and my eyes can get tired after many hours of reading. With the help of Dr. Wang my eye strain has been greatly diminished, and my days are literally brighter! Thank you, David McCullough More
