Dr. Fred Mattioli has performed more than 30,000 laser procedures and been named one of the International Association of Healthcare Professionals’ Top Ophthalmologists for 2012–2013. At his clinic, Mattioli Vision Professionals, the doctor draws on his experience to perform seamless, blade-free LASIK surgeries, which help patients avoid wearing glasses or taping telescopes to their faces. The clinic’s implantable lenses, meanwhile, alleviate fuzzy vision in much the same way as contacts do, except that they rest just inside the eye rather than outside of it. The team also screens for common eye diseases, such as glaucoma and cataracts, and Dr. Mattioli can discuss the results with patients in English or fluent Spanish.
Helmed by Dr. Charles Moore, a refractive surgeon with more than 30 years of experience, International EyeCare Laser & Lifestyle Center uses modern technology and procedures to clarify patients' fuzzy vision. Together, the staff has performed more than 50,000 vision-correcting procedures for everyone from fellow ophthalmologists to marathon needle threaders. The center's WaveLight Allegretto excimer laser system reshapes corneas in as little as 10 minutes, although the team can also use cataract surgery, radio-wave energy, and corneal implants to improve eyesight. Collectively, these procedures help correct the blurring effects of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Wayne Davis first discovered Pilates after pulling his hamstring in the 2000 Olympic trials. For a professional athlete and collegiate long-jump record holder, a pulled hamstring was more than just an injury. He turned to Pilates to rehab his leg and realized that what he had seen as a tool to fix his leg was actually improving both his speed and strength. Wayne decided he wanted to extend his knowledge to others and now leads up to seven Pilates classes per day using the Allegro Pilates reformer. The reformer challenges students to a core-tightening, flexibility-focused workout without putting stress on joints or forcing students to throw expensive refrigerators off a four-story building. To supplement the Pilates classes, Wayne and his team of seasoned instructors lead spinning classes and cardio-Pilates classes that combine core-strengthening moves with blasts of high-energy cardio.
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 partners Dr. Aric Welton and Dr. Stephanie McMillen, Dr. Sanders continues using advancing technology to remedy his patients' vision as quickly and painlessly as possible.
The teams 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.
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.

Holding doctorates in optometry and biochemistry, Dr. Zeinep O. Echetebu dispenses her extensive knowledge of vision to patients at both 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. 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, and Versace to ensure that clients look stylish when they see themselves clearly in the mirror.
