Dr. Samuel Yankelove of the aptly named Yankelove Cataract and Lasik Center brings more than 30 years of ocular repairmanship to the chair, fine-tuning unfocused eyeballs with blade-free LASIK treatments. Employing advanced VISX Star S4 equipment, the talented ocular doc targets misshapen corneas to alleviate such optic ailments as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and foggy hindsight. The laser’s cool light beam breaks molecular bonds a few layers at a time without upsetting surrounding tissue, sculpting the cornea to permanently restore failing light to dimming peepers, with many patients experiencing 20/20 results or better. Each LASIK treatment begins with an initial consultation to suss out a suitable treatment plan, followed by a preoperative appointment and six months of follow-up care to ensure proper healing and so that new and improved eyeballs maintain that new eyesight smell.
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.
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 partner Dr. Aric Welton, Dr. Sanders continues using advancing technology to remedy his patients' vision as quickly and painlessly as possible.
The duo's 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.

Founded by Dr. Stephen Joffe and Craig Joffe, a father-and-son team who used LASIK eye surgery to correct their own vision, Joffe MediCenter has five locations across the country where expert ophthalmologists use advanced diagnostics to conduct each custom wavefront LASIK surgery. Treatment begins with a free, noninvasive examination with Bausch & Lomb Orbscan and Zywave mapping systems—derived from technology developed for astronomy and physics applications. They generate a 3-D model of each eye, which, like a fingerprint or favorite line from The Princess Bride, is unique to each person.
Upon assessing the results to confirm LASIK candidacy, doctors schedule an in-office surgery. During the procedure, a microkeratome cuts a tiny flap in the cornea of the affected eye and lets the laser beam vaporize tissue standing in the way of 20/20 vision, reducing eyes' dependence on glasses and contacts regardless of whether clients suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. In most cases, patients can take their revamped vision out of the operating room in about 20 minutes. After the procedure, doctors schedule a postoperative exam.
