The LASIK surgeons at The Eye Clinic of Texas are pleased to announce a $999 per eye LASIK* price in celebration of their 25th anniversary of performing laser eye surgery for the vision correction of the most common refractive eye problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism nearsightedness. “We began the journey of helping eyeglass and contact lens wearers explore freedom from the hassles of dependence on optical devices for vision correction in 1990,” explained Bernard Milstein, M.D. “Since that time we have followed that journey through multiple advances in technology that allow us to make LASIK an affordable, cost effective option for those folks who just don’t want to have to wear glasses or contacts all the time,” said Dr. Milstein. “Today, we can provide the personalized one to one care and attention that patients deserve using the platform of All Laser Zeiss VisuMax® Bladeless LASIK for $999 per eye-making it realistic option for just about anyone who has to buy glasses or contacts on a regular basis,” shared Dr. Da-Thuy Van, Cataract & LASIK Surgeon at The Eye Clinic of Texas.

The Zeiss VisuMax® is an ultra fast femtosecond laser designed for patient comfort and surgical outcome through ergonomic design, precision optics and control in performing corneal and laser eye surgery. “By using the combination all laser platforms of the Zeiss VisuMax® Laser and the Allegretto® Wave® Laser systems we are able to deliver efficient precise procedures and exceptional results for our patients,” noted Dr. Van. “We still must take the time to evaluate each and every patient quite thoroughly to make sure we are going to get the best possible results for their individual situation. Without exception the long term experience and skill we have obtained over 25 years is a key to doing our best for patients.”

Patients who are contact lens wearers and thinking about LASIK in Houston should be aware that contact lens induced dry eyes are a real clinical condition that we may need to address prior to your LASIK surgery. “Dry eyes can be a very real problem for both rigid and soft contact lens wearers. Researchers reporting in the Eye & Contact Lens: Science & Clinical Practice demonstrated that both rigid and soft contact lenses negatively impacted the tear film surface quality. This research is important to keep in mind when contact lens wearers present for LASIK consultations since the evaluation of the tear film quality and quantity is a critical consideration of determining the patient’s candidacy for any type of Laser Vision Correction-but especially for LASIK surgery,” commented LASIK Surgeon Dr. Da-Thuy Van of The Eye Clinic of Texas serving greater Houston & Galveston. “Given that a significant number of our Houston patients electing to have LASIK today are indeed contact lens wearers and that dry eye is probably the most common side effect of LASIK that we see with our patients, we need to be aware that some of the pre LASIK tear film abnormalities that we find are actually due to their contact lens wear and that with a sufficient amount of time without contact lens wear many contact lens wearers who want LASIK will recover a normal tear film surface quality and be able to proceed,” noted Dr. Van.

Contact lens patients considering LASIK or any type of Laser Eye Surgery for vision correction are encouraged to find the best LASIK Surgeons in their area and have a thorough evaluation, examination and consultation in order to find out if they are good candidates.

Bernard Milstein, M.D., a Galveston & Houston LASIK Surgeon at The Eye Clinic of Texas helped potential Houston LASIK patients explore whether they could be good candidates even if they had glaucoma.  “We would consider performing LASIK for certain select patients with glaucoma on an individual case by case basis depending on the stability of their glaucoma and the overall health of their optic nerve as related to the glaucoma,” remarked Dr. Milstein. “We may use a suction ring or device for a short time during the LASIK procedure and this can cause a temporary elevation of intraocular pressure or IOP-something we are cautious about in patients with glaucoma,” Dr. Milstein further explained.

Generally, unless the glaucoma is severe it is possible that LASIK could be an option for most patients. Other types of laser eye surgery for vision correction such as PRK might be preferred. In some cases it might actually be beneficial to have lens replacement surgery using advanced technology lens implants for vision correction.

If you or someone you know has glaucoma or is a glaucoma suspect and is considering LASIK, we would be happy to provide a free consultation to help determine if they are a LASIK candidate or perhaps a better candidate for another type of refractive surgery. Please feel free to schedule an appointment by calling The Eye Clinic of Texas at 800-423-3937, visiting The Eye Clinic of Texas or facebook.com/ecot.lasik to schedule an appointment.

Galveston & Houston LASIK Surgeon Dr. Da-Thuy Van commented about the increasing number of motorcycle riders interested in LASIK. “Contact lenses and certainly eyeglasses can be a real challenge for motorcycle riders-so many more motorcycle enthusiasts consider LASIK these days. We want our motorcycle lovers having LASIK in Houston to enjoy motorcycle riding, but we always try to remind them that eye safety and also dry eyes should top the list of things they think about as part of their readiness checklists along with the condition of their gear and bikes,” Dr. Van further explained.

It is important to recognize the need for eye protection from the sun, bugs, small rocks and pebbles and especially the wind, which can really contribute to dry eye symptoms. LASIK patients as well as other recreational motorcycle riders sometimes overlook or are just not aware of the potential for eye irritation and motorcycle dry eye caused by the wind, exhaust fumes, pollen and pollution-as well as the summer sun and heat. 

At your LASIK consultation the staff will be exploring your lifestyle needs and activities. As a potential LASIK patient we want to take the time necessary so that we can carefully counsel you in order to get the best results and help meet your expectations. Please take the time to tell us about your motorcycle riding interest as well as all of the ways in which you are hoping to benefit from LASIK.
