“I had LASIK done in both my eyes and the next day at my follow up I was seeing 20/20! I’ve been dealing with glasses or contacts since the 5th grade (I’m 30) and as I’ve gotten older, my eyes have become dry, making my contacts very uncomfortable. I don’t know what took me so long to finally do this! I’m not in any pain whatsoever. The waiting area at the surgery center was very comfortable, and every staff member at the Longview and Tyler location were exception! Thank you all!”
“I had my LASIK surgery Jan 12 and I am so excited to say that just one day after, I’m driving around without glasses! It’s an unbelievable feeling. I’ve worn glasses for 16 years and being able to walk out of the house without them is amazing. The whole experience deserves a 10. Thank you to all the staff and doctors for this wonderful experience!”
“Dr. Hardin did my LASIK. The day after I had 20/15 vision – it is a great feeling knowing I don’t have to deal with corrective lenses anymore!”
“I had an excellent experience at Heaton! From the first free exam to getting me in the car after the surgery, everything was top-notch! I especially liked their surgery center which was dimly lit, and super relaxing and plush. One of the things that stood out to me, was Dr. Nickel asking if he could have a short prayer with me before the surgery. It was a very gracious and personable gesture. I am now seeing 20/15! I will definitely be recommending them to all who will listen. Thank you!”
“Awesome experience! Best staff ever, well worth the drive from Louisiana!! 20/15 overnight!!”
“I recently had LASIK with Dr. Heaton and cannot express how great my vision is now! The process was very thorough and I felt comfortable the whole time. Thanks to the wonderful staff that always had smiles on and were genuinely considerate with all of my needs. I would HIGHLY recommend Heaton Eye Associates to anyone that is remotely interested in having LASIK surgery done. It’s a very fast and painless procedure that will last me a lifetime!”
What Our Patients Are Saying About our Doctors
“I’ve needed glasses since my college days, and they have made it more difficult to play sports and limited my life in general. I wanted to be free from the restriction of glasses! I chose Heaton Eye Associates because they had great reviews, and as a doctor myself, I trusted Dr. Muirhead – we both graduated from the same medical school!” – Dr. Kyle Howard, Pediatrician in Marshall (Photo of Joel Muirhead, M.D. and Dr. Kyle Howard)
“After my husband had such an amazing experience with Dr. Nickel, I decided to take the leap too! From the first visit to the surgery, I’ve met some of the kindest and most professional eye care pros. As a cherry on top of a great experience, Dr. Nickel prayed with me before surgery. I highly recommend Heaton Eye Associates!” – Rachel R. (Photo of Todd Nickel, D.O. and Rachel R.)

“My experience with Heaton has been absolutely amazing! The staff and doctor made me feel like part of the family. They kept me comfortable and worry free during my procedure.

Dr. Nickel did cataract surgery on both eyes. He also did surgery to lift my eye brows and improve my side vision. All surgeries went well and at 73 years old I see 20/20. I will not go to any other Dr. He is a fantastic Doctor. The clinic staff are very professional and the service is great.
I had an excellent experience at Heaton in Tyler! From the first free exam to getting me in the car after the surgery, everything was top-notch!

I had all Lazer LASIK eye surgery done in the beginning of 2017 by Dr. Nickel. Had surgery done on both eyes and the entire experience was both pleasant and life changing. I have nothing but good things to say for East Texas Heaton eye associates. I went in there with high expectations and every employee in that building exceeded my expectations. I used to have to wear annoying contacts or ugly glasses well now I have perfect vision would highly recommend LASIK to anyone on the fence about it.
Like I've told pretty much everyone I know I'm not a rich dude but to me this surgery was worth at least ten times what it actually cost. Easily one of the best investments I've ever made and one of the happiest days of my life 🙂
Excellent ! This was my very first visit. From the reception desk to the two ladies (Maria and Jolene) who performed some pre exam measures to help Dr Nichol before he exams my eyes.... I felt very comfortable and the staff was extremely professional and...

I came to Heaton back in December for a lasik consultation. I was so tired of wearing glasses for the past 20 years and contacts for the last 15. After my first appointment, I was quoted a great deal on lasik and Noah signed and...
