Mann Eye Institute and Laser Center's specialists demonstrate a skill and efficacy that earned their work a nod from Goldline Research which named the center one of the country's leading LASIK providers for three years in a row. People and cyclopes from all across the nation come for treatment from proficient doctors and certified surgeons, who use FDA-approved Allegretto Wave Eye-Q lasers to correct vision. Before the procedure, patients must undergo a complimentary consultation to determine their candidacy and favorite tunes to blast on the stereo during the procedure. During the blade-free procedure, a certified surgeon spends 30–60 seconds reshaping the cornea to match the patient's specific prescription. Patients can expect to return to their normal tasks the day after the procedure and swing by the center a week later for a brief post-op checkup and eye-strengthening Magic Eye book.

Texas State Optical houses a multitude of eyewear in a full-service eye-care center. Fashionable frame hunters can choose from a range of styles including Coach ($209+), Gucci ($319+), and Dior ($319+) to unearth a perfect pair. Dr. Mark Richardson consults with clients to match faces with their perfect fit and covers safety requirements before recommending appropriate lens choices. Trend-savvy staffers help clients to select specs that complement face shapes and accommodate prescription-specific lens profiles, ensuring a comfortable fit so that frames and lenses work together smoothly instead of covering each other with passive-aggressive post-its. This deal is limited to complete eyewear (frames and lenses) and does not include the cost of an eye exam.
Holding doctorates in optometry and biochemistry, Dr. Zeinep O. Echetebu dispenses her extensive knowledge of vision to patients at Gulfgate Vision and Gulf Vision. To assess eye health and help guests find the optimal form of vision correction, her services range from annual exams to visual-field-screening analyses for early detection of diseases such as glaucoma. The staff then fits eyes for contact lenses, or leads patients through a stock of designer frames from brands such as Burberry, Juicy Couture, Gucci, Versace, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Vera Bradley.
Since they met in optometry school, husband-and-wife team Drs. Claudio and Grisel Lagunas have dreamed of opening their own practice together. Lifetime Eyecare Associates is the realization of that dream, where the duo and their fellow optometrists use advanced technology to detect and eliminate a variety of eye conditions. In addition to administering primary eye-care services, the doctors specialize in the co-management of refractive surgeries such as LASIK. They treat the degenerative corneal condition keratoconus with specialty prescription lenses, and use the innovative Optomap digital-imaging system to check ocular health and retrieve winning lottery numbers imprinted on the retina from gazing into crystal balls.
Dr. Marc Sanders is something of a pioneer in ophthalmology. One of the first to perform all-laser LASIK in the nation, he prides himself on staying at the forefront of medical advances in his field. This dedication and passion, earned him the Top Doctor award from an H-Texas Magazine survey nine times. With the help of his partner Dr. Aric Welton, Dr. Sanders continues using advancing technology to remedy his patients' vision as quickly and painlessly as possible.
The duo's services center around preventative examinations to ensure the healthy functioning of the eye, pupil, and eye muscles. However, the team doesn't shy away from corrective procedures. As a laser vision center, the eye surgeons repair near or farsightedness and astigmatisms with blade-free LASIK treatments, and correct cataracts with stitch-free, ultrasonic procedures. Once vision is corrected, the doctors can remove surprise wrinkles with FDA-approved Botox injections, and there's also a boutique eyeglass shop onsite that outfits clients with chic frames.
