Dr. Lorenzo Pelly, a board-certified physician with 36 years of experience, leads a team of laser-wielding technicians while providing relaxation and aesthetic services. A certified laser technician consults with patients to discuss their problems and concerns before laying out a custom treatment outline. Plans often center around the use of laser technology, which can support Laser Derm's virtually pain-free hair-removal, skin-tightening, and teeth-whitening treatments.
Situated on the shores of Laguna Madre, South Padre Island Golf Club spans 6,931 yards of coastal, palm-tree-lined terrain. Though the seaside locale affords aces a veritable bunkerful of picturesque vistas, ocean winds and hole-hugging water hazards demand precise drives, pinpoint approaches, and earplugs to guard against caddying sirens. The course’s challenging nature is tempered by five different tee options, making the links surmountable for developing divoteers but still engaging for workaday wedge wizards. Steer your included, obedient golf cart right along the coast on holes three through eight and gawk at the South Padre Island skyline, or reenact the most memorable events from the Texas Senior Open, which was previously hosted by the course. The club also houses a practice driving range, putting green, and a short-game area for testing windmill-thwarting mini-golf approaches.
At Sudarshan Eye Experts, Dr. Alexander Sudarshan and his team of certified technicians aim to correct vision problems such as farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism through blade-free laser eye surgery. Once a preprocedure consultation determines that their baby blues are equipped to handle surgery, patients return to the office for comprehensive eye exams to ascertain their corneas' health and clock ocular 40-yard-dash times. During the surgery itself, lasers expertly reshape corneas in a humidity-controlled, air-conditioned chamber. 3-D ActiveTrak technology and a CustomVue light map helps ensure accuracy by instantaneously adjusting corrective lasers to minute, involuntary eye movements, such as those caused by breathing or tap-dancing eyebrows. At a follow-up appointment, the next day or soon after, doctors will check vision, eliminate eyedrops, and take other measures to ensure that brows remain free of eyeglass shackles.
