What patients are saying.

At Eye Centers of Tennessee we are proud to have helped thousands of people gain freedom from glasses and contacts. We selected a few of our patients' responses to share with you. We hope this will give you some idea of how our patients see the world after their LASIK procedure.

"It is impossible to describe how amazing it is to see the world clearly without glasses or contacts. I will admit that I was apprehensive about the surgery, mainly because it sounded painful. But you all were so great at answering my questions and addressing any and all of my concerns. I was still nervous but knew that I was in great hands with the ECOT staff. No matter which office I go to, I am always greeted with a warm smile and kind words. I will certainly, wholeheartedly recommend you all to anyone considering any eye enhancement procedure. I will always be grateful for being able to see the world with my own eyes for the first time in 15 years." - Amye Wright
