Dr. Bernard Milstein of The Eye Clinic of Texas is named one of Texas Monthly’s Super Doctors® for the sixth straight year
LEAGUE CITY, Texas – Since 2005, Dr. Bernard Milstein, founder of The Eye Clinic of Texas, has been consecutively recognized as one of Texas Monthly’s Super Doctors®.
The Super Doctors® list was compiled by Key Professional Media (KPM), which asked more than 50,000 Texas physicians one question: “To whom would you refer a loved one or one of your patients for medical diagnosis and/or treatment?” After tallying the replies, the research team identified the Texas doctors who earned special recognition from their peers or demonstrated other indications of expertise in their specialties. The researchers also confirmed that each physician is properly licensed and without a history of disciplinary action.
Dr. Milstein was one of the first physicians to perform laser vision correction surgery in Texas and since then, The Eye Clinic of Texas has expanded its technology to include the latest advancements in eye surgeries by offering All Laser LASIK with the Intralase laser system and the ReSTOR lens, an Intraocular Lens used to foster a full-range of high-quality vision in patients.
“Receiving the Super Doc award never becomes common place. It is always an honor,” said Dr. Milstein. “At The Eye Clinic of Texas we have always strived to provide the highest level of patient care, and I could not have achieved the status of Super Doc if I didn’t have the support of an amazing team. At The Eye Clinic, we focus on being a team and together we achieve the status.”
Milstein specializes in LASIK, cataract surgery and refractive lens surgery. As an investigator in the original Food and Drug Administration studies, he helped prove the safety of the excimer laser for the treatment of myopia, astigmatism and hyperopia. Milstein was also among the first in the country approved to implant the ReSTOR accommodative lens. He is a fellow of The American Board of Ophthalmology, a past president of the Texas Ophthalmological Association and a member of The American Academy of Ophthalmology and The American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
In addition, he has been listed in The Best Doctors in America® database since 1996. Dr. Milstein is also an active member and past chairman of the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership.
Founded in 1972, The Eye Clinic of Texas offers the latest in cataract and refractive surgery, as well as a full-range of other eye care services at three locations throughout Galveston County: League City, Galveston and Texas City. For more information, call (800) 423-3937 or visit www.ecot.com.
