Another Look at LASIK

Grin Eye Care Leads Industry with Laser Expertise

If you’ve considered getting LASIK in the past but have talked yourself out of it because you think you’re not a candidate, or it’s too expensive, or too risky, or won’t give you long-term results, it’s time to open your eyes to the state-of-the-art technology provided at Grin Eye Care in Leawood.

Grin Eye Care uses the most current and advanced LASIK laser system available in the area—the VISX Star S4 Excimer Laser with iFS IntraLase® technology. It’s cutting edge but blade-free and offers great results with an excellent safety profile.

Also known as Blade-Free LASIK, All-Laser LASIK, Intralase LASIK or iLASIK, this technique is approved by NASA and the military for astronauts and pilots. The benefits of iLASIK include smooth healing, exceptional visual outcomes, and the potential for a lifetime of freedom from contacts and glasses. The procedure takes only minutes to perform. It’s safe, painless, affordable, and life changing.

Along with LASIK, Grin Eye Care specializes in additional refractive eye surgeries like Refractive Lens Exchange, which reduces the need for reading glasses or bifocals.

“LASIK is one of the best ways that patients can invest in themselves to improve their quality of life,” says Dr. Milton Grin, M.D., F.A.C.S., owner of Grin Eye Care. “Refractive Lens Exchange is a lesser known option for patients who are tired of using readers. It’s a similar procedure providing incredible results.”

Dr. Grin has been at the forefront of refractive surgery technology nearly his entire career. A leader in the LASIK industry and dedicated to continued education and best practices, Dr. Grin has earned the respect of his patients and colleagues. In 2019, Grin Eye Care will celebrate its 30th anniversary with 60 employees at three locations in Kansas City.  With its friendly, inviting offices designed to make every patient feel relaxed and valued, Grin Eye Care is consistently voted as Best Eye Care in the area.  

Dr. Grin, along with his partners, Dr. Barbara Wolock, M.D., F.A.C.S. and Dr. Jeff Wongskhaluang (“Dr. Wongs”), M.D., M.S. are some of the most trusted names in eye care in Kansas City.

“Dr. Grin is one of the pioneers of LASIK in the Kansas City area,” says Dr. Wongs. “We are proud of the high level of eye care that we provide and the positive feedback we get from patients.”

Dr. Wongs joined Grin Eye Care in 2015. He is fellowship-trained to treat cornea conditions and perform refractive surgeries, especially LASIK and Refractive Lens Exchange. All three partners are board-certified ophthalmologists.

Dr. Wongs says that the most rewarding aspect of working at Grin Eye Care is seeing the satisfaction patients get when they realize their full visual potential after a refractive procedure. 

“The gratitude that patients show us after surgery has been extremely heartwarming,” Dr. Wongs says. “I received the most thoughtful gift from a patient whose favorite hobby was to quilt, but she stopped because she couldn’t see well enough to do so. After her lens replacement surgery, she made me the largest quilt I’ve ever seen.”

Dr. Wongs says that Grin Eye Care believes in making great vision not only achievable but affordable: “We give discounts to the military, students, educators, and police, fire, and healthcare employees. For those who need help with financing, we can provide that assistance as well. We try to prevent cost from being an issue when considering the benefits of having great vision.”

“I underwent LASIK with Dr. Grin, and I have no idea why I didn’t do this ten years ago! The procedure was painless, the recovery was quick, and I was at Arrowhead the very next day. Dr. Grin and the whole team were super friendly. A very comfortable experience.”

– Michael B.

“After wearing glasses and contacts for over 20 years, I made the decision it was time for LASIK. I was referred to Dr. Wongs. He did a thorough examination to make sure I was a candidate, and he took the time to answer all my questions and concerns. The procedure was quick AND painless! This has been one of the best decisions. I’m so pleased with my vision. Thank you Dr. Wongs!”
