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.
Innovative Eyecare's full-service optometry boutique inspects eyes and outfits peepers with designer eyewear and contact lenses. Before clients select a stylish lens corrector, an experienced optometrist thoroughly examines their eyes during a 30-minute appointment aimed at determining prescription and assessing the health and Morse code blinking speed of the optic nerve (a $99 value). Next, a spectacle stylist can help outfit blinkers with chic frames from designers including Prada, Versace, Ray-Ban, Calvin Klein, and more ($160–$600). A variety of contact lenses are also available for discreet vision correcting or reading covert assignments written exclusively in size 3 font ($19.75–$86.50/box).
