Serving patients seeking LASIK eye surgery in Houston and the surrounding area
Drs. Hamill, Koch, Pflugfelder, Weikert and Yeu are highly experienced ophthalmologists with fellowship training in corneal and refractive surgery. They are recognized worldwide for making Baylor Vision a center of excellence in refractive surgery. Ophthalmic surgeons travel from around the world to learn advanced techniques from the Baylor Vision team, and the center's surgeons travel to academic meetings in the U.S and abroad to discuss their experiences with advanced laser vision correction technologies.
For more than 100 years the Baylor College of Medicine has provided patient care of the highest quality. The surgeons of Baylor Vision continue this tradition by delivering impeccable care and excellent LASIK results.

More About Vision Correction at Baylor Vision
At Baylor Vision, each patient is carefully evaluated and treated by the physicians and staff to ensure the best possible LASIK outcomes. The doctors meet with their patients before and on the day of the surgery to answer questions and discuss any concerns. This approach helps patients feel more comfortable and confident about their treatments.
Baylor Vision's surgeons use the sophisticated VISX Star S4 excimer laser platform with CustomVue technology to create a customized profile of each patient's eyes. All LASIK eye surgeries are performed with either a microkeratome (bladed surgical instrument) or a special laser known as IntraLase. (The blade-less IntraLase method increases the safety and accuracy of LASIK procedures.) In addition to LASIK, Baylor Vision offers other forms of laser vision correction, including PRK and Epi-LASIK.
Baylor Vision's surgeons exercise the utmost caution in their approach to laser vision correction. Prior to the procedure, patients undergo a comprehensive screening process, which eliminates nearly one-third of prospective candidates from consideration for LASIK surgery. However, patients who do not qualify for LASIK can often achieve similar vision correction results by undergoing PRK or Epi-LASIK.
