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.
Full service optometric practice including optical. Dr. Renee T. Dunlap gives eye examinations to 6 month olds to 106 year olds and is licensed as a therapeutic optometrist and optometric glaucoma specialist. She also fits contact lenses for multifocals, keratoconus, and after cornea transplants and refractive surgery.

Corralled by crisp, dark wood borders, display cases full of designer spectacles from Ray-Ban, Fendi, Gucci, and Christian Dior glitter under bright hanging lights at Custom Eye Care at the Rim. These designer frames, which can be customized with specialty materials and coatings such as HD panes by Zeiss, adorn the faces of Dr. M. Elaine Vlasak's patients after she conducts an eye exam. In addition to helping patients achieve clear vision with glasses, the doctor, who speaks Spanish, English, and Sea Horse, gives LASIK consultations and diagnoses glaucoma, diabetes, and cataracts. When she's not treating eyes, Dr. Vlasak is teaching at the UIW School of Optometry.
The doctors at Manrique Custom Vision Center harness the peeper-restoring powers of cutting-edge laser technologies to help patients see clearly without glasses or contact lenses. The blade-free Allegretto Wave Eye-Q procedure utilizes an ultra-thin laser pulse to resculpt the surface of the cornea, correcting vision-related issues such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, calling everyone "Greg," and astigmatism. Prior to undergoing the process, patients submit to a thorough examination to ensure they're a good candidate for the procedure and that the machinery is properly calibrated for their unique ocular orbs. Patients will be able to see immediately after the surgery––which takes seconds per eye––and can continue all normal functioning, including driving and working, the next day.
