Dr. Taylor Strange, the founder of Alliance Vision Institute, is a Board-Certified ophthalmologist and a leader in laser vision correction surgery. He specializes in vision enhancement procedures such as LASIK eye surgery, PRK eye surgery (photorefractive keratectomy), refractive lens exchange (RLE), and implantable contact lens (ICL) surgery.
After earning a B.S. in Biology and a M.S. in Biomedical Sciences from the University of North Texas, Dr. Strange enrolled in the University of North Texas Health Science Center for medical school — and graduated with a perfect GPA.
After medical school, Dr. Strange completed a Transitional Internship at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, TX, followed by an Ophthalmology Residency at the University of Louisville Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences. Today, Dr. Strange is a highly-respected, Board-Certified ophthalmologist and eye surgeon specializing in laser vision correction.
Dr. Strange sits down with patients for a consultation to decide which of these life-changing vision correction procedures are right for them.
LASIK is a life-changing vision correction procedure that amends nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism to provide clearer eyesight.
Cataract surgery removes your cataract and replaces it with a new, artificial lens that you select and can restore or improve your vision
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a popular vision correction alternative to LASIK for people with certain cornea or eye issues. Dr. Strange is experienced with both LASIK and PRK, and these very similar procedures also have nearly identical outcomes.
Refractive Lens Exchange, or RLE, is a quick outpatient procedure where Dr. Strange replaces the eye’s natural lens with a vision-enhancing artificial lens. RLE’s outcomes are the same Vision Packages as those we have for premium cataract surgery, and this procedure prevents cataracts as well.
Small incision lenticule extraction surgery, commonly known as SMILE, provides patients with similar vision results as LASIK. Dr. Strange offers this procedure for patients who have thinner corneas, active lifestyles, or otherwise don’t qualify for LASIK surgery.
Dr. Strange is skilled in enhancing patients’ vision via EVO Visian implantable contact lenses (ICLs), which are placed into your eye without removing any tissue for outcomes similar to LASIK.
Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) uses modern, often microscopic technology to safely provide long-term solutions for high IOP.
Part of why Dr. Strange is so in touch with your vision correction needs (and all your apprehensions!) is that he’s undergone laser vision correction himself. He’ll be able to guide you through every part of the process with a personal touch, so that you can feel the same joy of clear vision that he felt afterwards.
Dr. Strange’s bedside manner and good humor are beloved by patients and colleagues alike. He strives to be the doctor you want by your side through any procedure — years from now, you could be having a root canal and wish Dr. Strange was at least in the room!
When not saving people’s vision or moonlighting as a certain popular hero, Dr. Strange enjoys spending time with his children and wife (to whom he credits his entire career), staying active in his church, playing basketball, cycling, and enjoying football games on fall weekends.
Thank you for choosing Alliance Vision Institute for your vision correction needs. It is such an honor you have decided to place your eyesight in our care, and I am excited to help you see to your full visual potential.
In middle school, I noticed my vision changing, and it became more difficult to see the teacher’s lessons from the back of the classroom. I had developed myopia and astigmatism, forcing me into glasses and contact lenses. Adjusting to the hassles and frustrations glasses and contacts brought made that time in my life difficult. For those of you struggling with poor vision, I can relate to your visual anxiety and desire to see better without the obstacles poor vision brings. After decades of dealing with the headache of glasses and contacts, I decided to pursue laser vision correction surgery. Waking up every morning and being able to see the world around me with perfect vision was absolutely life changing!
I am grateful to have the opportunity to relive that same joy with my patients after their vision correction procedures. I have performed more than 15,000 vision correction procedures, and the list of happy patients include people who have traveled from all over the great state of Texas as well as my closest friends and family, including my mother, father, several aunts and uncles and other eye surgeons and their families.
Since starting Alliance Vision Institute (formerly Alliance Ophthalmology) in 2017, it has been my dream to create a world-class, all-inclusive facility, which incorporates an amazing clinic, laser vision correction center and eye surgery center. With the recent opening of our new 24,000 sq ft, state of the art facility, that dream became reality. For those of you who have entrusted me and other doctors at Alliance Vision Institute to correct your vision, I can’t say thank you enough! For those of you trying to decide which way to go regarding your eyesight, it is my hope you will be able to experience the same vision correction miracle that my patients and I have experienced.
What made you decide to become an ophthalmologist?
Having experienced the need for glasses and contact lenses at a young age, I wanted to make a difference in peoples’ lives by correcting their vision to the best possible outcomes.
Do you participate in any community/volunteer/service work?
AVI participates in several vision foundations across the globe. We proudly support the Himalayan Cataract Project and the Guerrero Eye Clinic in Mexico, which provides medical care to the indigent population of Mexico.
What is the most satisfying part of your job?
Seeing the amazement on my patient’s faces after they get up from their vision correction surgery! It never gets old.

Led by Dr. Taylor Strange, Alliance Vision Institute specializes in all six of the major methods for permanently correcting your vision, including all laser cataract surgery, all laser LASIK, SMILE-LASIK, custom lens replacement, PRK, and EVO-ICL.
