LASIK Success Story
"My Lasik procedure experience was GREAT from start to finish. When I came to Dr. Wade and the Eye Center of Texas, my prescription was somewhere around 20/80...and now I have 20/25 vision. Everything went perfectly; I am so pleased with my results. I actually had Lasik surgery years ago but needed to have it done again. Dr. Wade was able to do my surgery, fix what other doctors has missed and without any complications. Dr. Wade and his staff were awesome! They were friendly, informative, and thorough. It makes it easy to speak highly of the expertise and quality of their work when I know first hand."

Dr. Mayo utilizes wavefront imaging technology to create a unique "fingerprint" of the eye's unique refractive errors, including nearly imperceptible errors called higher order aberrations. He then uses this information to calibrate the excimer laser used to re-contour the curvature of the cornea.
Dr. Mayo begins LASIK surgery by using the IntraLase femtosecond laser to create a small flap in the cornea. He gently lifts back the flap to access the corneal tissue underneath. Using the calibrated excimer laser, Dr. Mayo then reshapes the curvature of the cornea to correct the refractive error causing the patient's nearsightedness, farsightedness and / or astigmatism. Once Dr. Mayo is satisfied with the newly contoured cornea, he carefully returns the corneal flap back to its initial position, where it naturally re-bonds to the eye without the need for sutures.
Dr. Mayo's Houston LASIK patients do not experience any pain during the procedure. They typically notice an improvement in vision within 24 to 48 hours after LASIK surgery. Patients are happy to discover that they no longer need to rely on daily eyewear to see clearly. Not to mention, more than 99 percent of patients attain 20/20 vision or better following LASIK surgery.
