Resolved: Fantastic people!

Just had my lasik surgery done by tylock-george three days ago and im so happy! No more contacts and no more glasses. Had my consultation on thursday, which was $175. Staff was friendly and got me in pretty quick. Then came back on friday and had the actual surgery which was inexpensive compared to all the other places my husband and I researched. Plus they have several procedures to choose from depending on your eyes. Lengthy wait this time but totally worth it. Procedure didnt hurt at all. Was sent home to recover and came back saturday for followup. Could see right after surgery. The best part was getting to put my glasses in a box that goes out to help people who need glasses and cant afford them. I experienced a litttle pain an hour after my procedure that day after the numbing eye drops wore off but it was not bad. This place is totally worth the money and time! Heck we drove 2 hours to see this guy. He is that good! Like

SAVE YOUR $$$ go elsewhere -- horrible experience

In a nutshell here are my fun takeaways... I drove clear across town for a 4 hour and 15 minute appointment to meet/see the very HIGHLY recommended Dr. Tylock for LASIK "consult"! Here's what went down.... -Drove 60 mins to get to said appoint (traffic/construction) -Spent 4.5 hours at this "place"! YES! 4 and 1/2 hours!!! -Staff seemed confused, lots of interruptions & shuffling going on -Staff seemed unprofessional & unorganized (ie. all over the place) -Dr. on staff (not Tylock or George) ate lunch during my appoint -Said Dr.'s hands reeked of onions/burgers -Said Dr. belched repeatedly while discussing my surgery -Said Dr. Numbed & pricked my eyeballs so much I had a panic attack -After panic attack Dr. proceeds to keep numbing and pricking -Never once got Tylock or George to come and talk with me -Didn't explain actual procedure at all (ummm like important details here, don't make me YouTube this) -Paid them $175 to "see" if I want to give them $4100 for more "FUN" with them -Drove home in 75 minutes of tollway traffic Is this completely normal for a LASIK consult? Worst part for me at the end of all this mess is that I was told I would get to meet "the good doctor" on day of my surgery. WTH?!?!? Maybe it's just me but I'd rather meet the man/woman whose going to perform the actual procedure on me, be treated respectfully, have clean hands and most definitely be closer to home...this place felt like a United Airlines circus but smells like Mel's Diner?!?

Dr. Gary Tylock is a true professional

I have done business with Dr. Tylock on several occasions. 3 members of my family have ALL benefited from Dr. Tylocks services and we are ALL very happy. The wait times can be a little lengthy, and the office is generally very busy, but this should be expected. Dr. Tylock is very well known and offers top notch services, it's no wonder he stays swamped. Surgeries all went very well and recovery times were remarkably quick. I would recommend Dr. Tylock to ANYONE!! I have sent many family members and friends to see Dr. Tylock and everyone of them have been very satisfied.

My experience has been mixed. I had both eyes done about 3 years ago with good results on my left and bad one in my right.

The issue with my right eye was ghost images (double vision) and the vision was not 20/20 from the start. When I communicated this issue to the Tylock staff, their response was this is normal and it will go away in a couple of weeks. Couple of weeks went by and they told me it will get better after a month. A month went by and their answer was it will get better after 6 month, then at one year.

At the same time my vision was not sharp (probably 20/40). At the one year appointment, their response was the double vision was due to dry eye and I should use tear drops occasionally and it will get better. After 3 years, my vision regressed on the right eye (20/50 or worst) and the double vision did not go away. I decided to go to Dr Booth to get if fixed and I am now (20/15) and more importantly I have no double vision.

I am really disappointed with Dr.

Tylock and his staff as they brushed aside the issue. Of course I will not get the $$$$ I paid for double vision.

Just curious, were you using drops several times a day for the first few months, without fail?

Dr. Gary Tylock is literally the worst doctor I have ever seen

Dr. Gary Tylock is literally the worst doctor I have ever seen. He didn't take my concerns or questions seriously. He seemed unfriendly and distracted. The eye exam he gave me at Gary Tylock Laser Center was not thorough. He answered a personal cell phone call during my exam! He did nothing to inspire my confidence. There are much better eye doctors out there... don't visit this one. Try to avoid this center because you will lose your money and get nothing but allot of problems on your head. Try other Centers and doctors and surely you will find something better.

Strange... We have a Dr Gary Tylock I m DFW area (Irving) that is fantastic'.

Between my husband and children- cataract surgery, and 3 LASIK surgeries. I would not trust anyone else with my families vision!

#565494

I was diagnosed as having cataracts 3 years ago. I chose to go to Dr.

Tylock for my surgery, as he accepted Aetna Ins. at that time. I previously (years prior) had mono-Lasik surgery. In choosing my cataract replacement lens, I ask if Crystal Lens would work for me, and Dr.

Tylock stated they would, even though I currently had mono-vision. Well--------they are a disaster. They did pretty good until about 2 weeks from cataract surgery date, he did Yag Surgery (drills *** in the lens pocket God gave us - and where the new Crystal Lens are sitting)- after the Yag, I was left with 20-25 floaters, and a string of mucus which floats over the path of my vision, and a reflection in my eyes, as if a mirror is being reflected in my sight path, and 20/40 vision. However, any time I have gone to Dr.

Tylock with my concerns, he tells me to adjust and overlook these issues in my vision, which is no possible. He also tries to stretch my vision testing so he can document his records falsely. I have been to 2 other doctors who have measured my vision at 20/40. However, Dr.

Tylock doesn't want to accept any responsibility for my issues and, as of last week, wants to start all over with my evaluation and start charging me again for services. I have stated that I paid him an extra $5,000 for the Crystal Lens and the promise he could adjust my vision to give me 20/20, however, he has not be able to do any of his promises for the vision I should have, after all this surgery. With this being said, I would encourage you to avoid going to Dr. Tylock, do not choose Crystal Lens if 50 or over, as I have now found out our muscles in our eyes are weaker at that age and it is not found Crystal Lens doesn't work well in people of our age.

Also, NEVER, NEVER, AGREE TO HAVE THE YAG SURGERY DONE. I may have been able to live with some of my issues, however, after the YAG Surgery, my vision is a total disaster. I agree, Dr.

Tylock's bed side manner is terrible, once he has a patient left with issues as a result of a screw up in his surgery to one's eyes. He just wants you to go away.

I had Lasik surgery by Dr. Tylock about 10 years ago.

I had just been diagnosed with needing trifocals which was very upsetting. Went to one of Tylocks seminars and was told if I wanted monovision I would have to wear contacts for monovision for 6 months before they would consider me. I did fine and requested the monovision Lasik surgery.

All went well and I continue to get my eyes checked there. So far there is no need for glasses yet which always seems to surprise the Tylock staff.

#438165

I think that Dr. Tylock and his staff are really nice. They looked at my eyes and told me they were fine.

#389807

I had PRK from Dr. Tylock earlier this year, and am very happy with the entire experience and that I can finally see without contacts/glasses.

Dr.

Tylock was very professional and answered my millions of questions. I'd recommend him to anyone who wants/needs lasik!

#375161

I had my eyes done about 2 years ago and they are worse now than they were before! One eye feels constantly irritated, I still have to use my glasses and have been back several times and they always say everything is fine.

EVERYTHING IS NOT FINE. I would not recommend Dr Tylock to NOBODY PERIOD!!!!!!!

#326684

I had mono vision at Tylock. The worst esperience ever.

I am suffering from pain and discomfort all the time because cells are growing under the eye flap.

I am worroed and concerned. For those who think about mono vision, please think twice and seek advice of good doctors

#265035

I had PRK with Tylock one week ago and so far I am very concerned! I have also been told that I am right on track, healing properly but I feel like I am legally blind.

My eyesight is sooooo blurry and after being up and trying to drive and work for 20 minutes I want to crawl in hole and hide my eyes are soooo blurry and tired! The constant nagging headache of trying to see is enough to make me go crazy.

I am hopeful this blurriness is about to go away...please please I am praying that my vision clears up soon. :sigh I am sooo scared!

@PissedConsumer265035

I would really like to know how "Blurry's" vision is now. I hope better than mine.

I came out of the surgery Tylock performed blind in that eye due to an infection which occurred during surgery. I do not know how it happened as he never even told me it was infected; he just referred me to a specialist after about a week. It was unbearably painful. I ended up having to have my eye removed.

The eye was never going to recover, and it was the only way to stop the pain.

I understand bad things happen to people, and I sincerely hope this never happens to anyone else.

That being said, I do not believe Tylock is the one you want treating you if the outcome is less than ideal.

I will never know if this post keeps one person from pain or loss of their eye, but I still have to speak up.

#165580

The comments listed above are fraudulent and baseless. Dr.

Tylock and his staff are friendly, efficient, competent, and compassionate. The complaints about Dr. Tylock appearing uncaring and distracted are ridiculous... more likely the result of an internet marketing scheme than the TRUTH.

I had my eye surgery last week and am already extremely pleased with the results. My experience was nothing but pleasant before, during, and after the surgery. The staff went the extra mile to thoroughly explain the procedure and make me feel comfortable on the day of surgery.

I would recommend Dr. Tylock to all my friends and family.
