At ClearChoice EyeCare, Angela Adkins, OD, doesn't just use the latest technology to care for patients' eyes. She also donates her talents to worthy causes. Dr. Adkins has called upon her extensive training in areas such as ocular disease, diabetic retinopathy, and pediatric vision care while working as a volunteer optometrist in Oaxaca, Mexico, and at charitable events for the Lion's Club and St. Louis Community Services. She has also worked as a caregiver for people with physical and mental disabilities, and as a volunteer with the Special Olympics.
After submitting their peepers to Dr. Adkins's careful examination and browsing the store's selection of more than 1,100 frames, patients can wait while technicians in the onsite finishing lab complete same-day orders for glasses. The center also features a separate waiting area complete with toys and a television to entertain children and pacify cranky adults who refuse to share their blocks.
The board-certified ocular experts at Hill Country Eye Center sharpen vision with LASIK and PRK outpatient procedures to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. After greeting patients with a consultation and a series of coded blinks to set them at ease, the LASIK procedure begins with a laser creating a circular flap on the surface of the cornea. The doctor folds the flap back to allow a cool laser to reshape the cornea, refocusing entering light in a process designed to vastly improve vision and eliminate the need to wear contact lenses and socket-size crystal balls. Alternatively, PRK applies the laser's sculptural powers directly to the surface of the cornea, with no need to cut a flap. Patients can click here to learn more about the procedure.
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 Wavelight 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 reshapes 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.

In the past 14 years, Eye LASIK Austin has helped improve the eyesight of thousands of patients. The center routinely ensures that it possesses the most technologically advanced equipment, allowing the nine on-staff surgeons to better produce dramatic results for their patients. When performing blade-free iLASIK treatments, for example, the surgeons begin by using WaveScan diagnostic technology to collect a detailed, three-dimensional image of the patient's eyes. This collected data then helps them guide the laser as they reshape the cornea, often helping the patient achieve 20/20 vision, or better. Besides LASIK surgery, the center also offers vision-enhancing services such as advanced surface ablation and photorefractive keratectomy.
