Welcome to the Eye Consultants of Texas Blog - Eye Consultants of Texas is a leading Grapevine-based ophthalmology practice providing unsurpassed total eye care to the entire Dallas/Fort Worth area. Founder Phillips Kirk Labor, MD is internationally renowned for his LASIK expertise, and is an authority on numerous other advancements such as no-stitch cataract surgery. He was the first U.S. solo private practitioner to acquire the Ziemer FEMTO LDV for blade free LASIK, and first Texas ophthalmologist to implant the ReZoom lens.
In addition, the practice offers Premium Smart Lenses, implantable contact lenses, Conductive Keratoplasty (CK), Glaucoma Management, Optometry, and general eye care. Eye Consultants of Texas is at the forefront of technology. Its leading doctors continuously employ the latest innovations and advanced surgery techniques in an effort to enhance the quality of life for each of its patients.
We always ask our Dallas/Fort Worth patients if they would mind completing our Patient Satisfaction Survey. This is totally anonymous so patients will feel comfortable sharing their most candid feedback. Naturally, we pay more attention to any areas where we need to do better. But like any business, we are extremely proud to know when we have excelled. Here are just a few stand out comments from individual surveys as each patient wrote them:
Spring is in full bloom all over Dallas/Fort Worth. So wouldn’t it be nice to see the roses you’ve stopped to smell? If you’re tired of depending on glasses and contacts, we’ll give you the real scoop on LASIK at our Spring LASIK Event, Tuesday, April 23 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM at our Grapevine office.
We recently released a video featuring testimonials from Eye Consultants of Texas patients who had LASIK performed by Dr. Labor. This follows another video we released last Summer featuring Dr. Labor’s Premium Smart Lens patients from around the Dallas/Fort Worth area. This one, however, was a bit unique in that one of the LASIK patients was interviewed just before her LASIK procedure as well as several months later, and includes footage from her actual surgery. Just like our premium lens video, this one was non-scripted. We wanted our patients to openly and honestly share their experiences – what they felt and expected, as well as how LASIK has impacted their lives.
LASIK surgery has made tremendous strides over the years. The technology continues to gets better, improving precision, surgery time and recovery. In the comfort of our offices, Dr. Labor combines the advanced IFS™ Femtosecond Laser with VISX® technology for an all-laser procedure called iLASIK, designed to increase comfort and safety while achieving the best possible outcome.
Yet no matter how much LASIK surgery advances, the need for genuine “old fashioned” care will never change. Dr. Labor is well-known for his strong devotion to every patient, which is evident in our videos. We are extremely grateful to all patients who have taken the time to share their stories on camera.
The Eye Consultants of Texas mobile app is officially live. As a practice that prides itself on using the latest technology, we felt it was definitely time to offer this to our patients across Dallas/Fort Worth. A custom Eye Consultants of Texas App has been created for Android, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices. All are available for free download at both App stores (see links below).

Now that the big ball has fallen and the calendar has started over, it’s time to think about those new year’s resolutions. Or, more importantly, how to stick to them.
Although relatively simple, LASIK is surgery. So like any medical procedure, finding a reputable, skilled surgeon you can trust is important to your outcome. Dr. Labor, our doctors, and staff all work to earn the trust of our Dallas/Fort Worth patients by taking the time to understand their overall health, particular condition, and only provide what is truly needed. In this 4thSimplifying LASIK series blog, here are some things we would encourage our patients to consider related to the issue of trust.
Is LASIK just a passing thought? Or, are you ready to jump in with both feet, so to speak? Either way, two of the first things to consider are safety and what types of results you can expect. Continued advancements make LASIK safer and more effective than ever before. Still, LASIK is surgery, and you owe it to yourself to choose a reputable doctor and practice, who, in turn, owe you a full disclosure – standard procedure at Eye Consultants of Texas. As the third in our Simplifying LASIKBasics series, here are a few highlights about what you should know.
