What our clients say:

  • I had LASIK done by Dr. Holmes over a year ago, and I couldn’t be happier! I had been nervous about having the procedure, and actually put it off for several years. I then came to see Dr. Holmes, who made me feel comfortable and at ease. He answered all my questions, and explained the procedure in great detail. The procedure was done with no complications. The technicians that assisted during the procedure were very kind, and helped me relax. I would recommend LASIK at Tennessee Valley Laser Center to anyone. After a year, my vision is still good, and I have not had any problems.

  • I came to Dr. Doss just over a year ago for LASIK surgery. My vision had been getting progressively worse for the better part of my life. It started when I was 6 and finally stabilized when I was in my twenties. My prescription was around -7.50 in both eyes by the time everything stabilized. Finally at age 30 I had this operation, and I couldn’t be happier. My vision is better now than it has been my whole life. I no longer reach for my glasses in the morning when I wake up, and I’m not dependent on anything (glasses or contact lenses) for my day-to-day vision. Getting LASIK surgery has changed the way I see the world.

  • I want to thank Dr. Murchison and his incredible staff for taking such great care of me during my LASIK treatment. I have had no problems and my vision is now perfect in both eyes. From the moment I entered the office, I was treated by the nicest staff and felt completely comfortable with the process. Everything regarding the surgery was fully explained and all of my questions were answered with a smile. Having worn glasses since kindergarten, I am thrilled with being able to see clearly from the moment I wake up in the morning. Being 24 years old, there are so many experiences I have yet to come that I know I will appreciate even more because I do not have to worry about my contacts or glasses bothering my eyes. I am getting married in July and am so happy that I do not have to worry about putting in new contacts and fixing my makeup every few hours because my eyes are itching on the big day! This is just one example out of many that I am excited to experience with fixed vision. I still find myself in awe of what I can now see without glasses or contacts! Thanks again for truly changing my life!

  • After years of being scared, I finally met with Dr. Darin Smith about getting LASIK. He is professional, courteous, and an accomplished doctor. He explained the full procedure, addressed all my concerns, and earned my trust. The surgery lasted about 20 minutes, my recovery around a day, and the results have been spectacular. I'm now seeing 20/15, and it's like seeing the world for the first time. Everything is crisp. I can make out tiny details from far away, road signs are no longer a mystery, and when I open my eyes in the morning, I can read the clock! There's also the added bonus of not having to hassle with contacts and glasses anymore. It's one of the best decisions I ever made. Put your faith in Dr. Smith, and you will be amazed too.

  • I recently had LASIK eye surgery from Dr. Froula and his lovely staff at Tennessee Valley Laser Center. I was very nervous about having the procedure done due to the fact that I am very high myopic in both eyes, but Megan Wade and Erin Rutherford Dr. Froula's Refractive Surgery Coordinators insured me they also had horrible vision and had it done and it was life changing. After Meeting Dr. Froula and talking to him I immediately felt at ease and I knew he was the doctor for me. He is very personable, caring, and skilled in his care for me. I trusted in him with my sight and he did not disappoint. My sight went from counting fingers at 3 ft' to 20/15 in the matter of days. This has been a life changing procedure. I am now able to wake up and see the clock and not be a slave to my glasses and contacts. I would advise anyone who is on the fence about it to do yourself a favor and go see Dr. Froula and his staff at Tennessee Valley Laser Center. Don’t be Basic, Get Lasik
