After a military career spent treating soldiers and veterans in far-flung locales ranging from Kosovo to stateside Veterans Affairs hospitals, Dr. Joseph R. Rogalinski returned to his adopted home of Texas to tackle a new challenge: a civilian optometry practice. Joined by Dr. Elizabeth Nguyen and Dr. Jeffrey Legrande, he now dedicates his workday to improving eyesight with services ranging from comprehensive eye exams to laser surgery co-management and emergency eyecare treatments. His practice also houses an eyewear emporium with more than 1,000 eyeglass frames in as many different styles. Brands include Coach, RayBan, Harley Davidson and Dolce & Gabbana; each of their locations features different designers and different passwords for obtaining the ?good? sunglasses.
At EyeMazing Optical, San Antonio native Gerardo R. Noriega, OD uses his extensive training and two decades of experience to care for eyes with the latest technology. While earning his doctor of optometry degree at the University of Houston, Dr. Noriega participated in externships with the Zuni Indian Health Service in New Mexico and Fort Carson Army Hospital Eye Clinic in Colorado. He now channels this vast experience when providing thorough eye exams and solutions for conditions such as dry eye, and improving patients' sight with laser vision correction or corneal refractive therapy with Paragon CRT therapeutic lenses. The innovative, breathable lenses are worn during sleep, and gently reshape the cornea to temporarily correct myopia or bring Lotto-predicting dreams into sharper focus.
The office's rustic wood furniture and saloon-like doors give it a welcoming and distinctly Texan feel. From within these homey confines, a highly trained stylist complements clients' faces with frames from the likes of Gucci, Kenneth Cole, and Puma, all of which can protect eyes from overaggressive tumbleweeds.
Ultravision's four doctors come from diverse backgrounds, a fact which allows them to perform everything from simple eye exams to advanced Lasik procedures. Dr. Tran, for example, specializes in fitting custom contact lenses and managing anterior segment diseases. Dr. Barondes, meanwhile brings experience in pediatric vision therapy to the table, while Dr. Trevino performs glaucoma and cataract surgeries.
Dr. Tomy Starck, the center's director, takes Lasik surgery one step further. Due to his expertise and long experience in the field of vision correction, he capably performs the Lasik treatment which uses a Bausch & Lomb Zyoptix laser to re-sculpt the front surface of the eye in an individual pattern. That means that the treatment is completely customized to the patient's eye imperfections, often correcting their vision to 20/20 and allowing them to go out without wearing glasses or carrying a cumbersome prescription spyglass.
Dr. Jennifer Martino and her staff at Martino Eyecare tend to the needs of patients of all ages with comprehensive examinations and prescriptions for contact lenses and glasses. In addition to routine care, the team treats eye diseases, and handles eye-related emergencies.
