What Do Dr. Wong's Patients have to Say?
"When you are always on the road like we are, it really makes it nice not having to deal with glasses or contacts. It's one less thing you have to worry about. After LASIK, I noticed a huge difference in my eyesight...things at short and longer distances seemed more clear (the glove looks a little closer). Not to mention there is no glare from lights at night, whether it's lights over the baseball field or driving. I would highly recommend it to anybody. Thanks again Eyes Of Texas Laser Center!" Homer Bailey, Professional Baseball Player/Cincinnati Reds
"What a new lease on life! No fumbling for glasses, cleaning & fussing over contact lenses every day. Seeing perfectly the moment I wake up! Reading the car control panel without fumbling for reading glasses while wearing my contacts for distance. Best thing anyone can do for themselves to make life more simple and less complicated! Eyes Of Texas Laser Center is the BEST!!" Betty Zimmerman, Legal Secretary
"I want to thank you for liberating me from the glasses and contacts, that I have worn since the age of twelve. Since I lead an extremely active lifestyle, with long work hours and a variety of outdoor hobbies, my glasses have always been a problem, and I had waited years for a safe and reliable method of permanently correcting my vision. After carefully reviewing my options and speaking with several people who had undergone the LASIK procedure, I had no problem getting my initial appointment with you, In fact, I was able to pre-schedule my surgery before my evaluation, simplifying my already complex schedule. After my initial visit, I felt confident in my understanding of the procedure and the risks and benefits it involved. On the day of my surgery I was not nervous or frightened, and I felt the entire procedure to be completely painless and surprisingly brief. I took a cab home and slept for four hours, and on awakening I found the vision in my right eye to be 20/20 - maybe better! By the following day, my left eye was 20/25 and continued to improve over the next day or two. My vision is now at least 20/20, and without my glasses I no longer get the headaches and neck tightness that 12 to 14 hours of work can bring on. I can now jog or cycle or swim and still see perfectly - something I hope I'll never again take for granted.
"As a fellow physician, I want to compliment you on your outstanding devotion to your patients. Your excellent explanation of the procedure, along with your extensive experience and calm bedside manner during the surgery, provide your patients with a confident, positive and personalized experience. I have already referred several people to you, including my own wife, and have received nothing but glowing praise for your care. I wish you continued success, and would be happy to speak to any of your patients about my experience." R. Lee Chilton III MD, FACEP, FAAEM, President, Austin Cardiac Emergency Services
