Laser Cataract Surgery

Laser Cataract Surgery is an advanced technology that adds computer-control to key steps of cataract surgery using a femtosecond laser. The laser analyzes high-resolution images of your eye and helps your surgeon design a custom procedure for you with a greater level of precision and control. The laser performs several critical steps of the surgical process, including creation of the incisions and fragmentation of the cataract, to make removal faster and easier.

Blade-free LASIK

The WaveLight® Excimer Laser is the only system to use Wavefront Optimized® ablation profiles as part of every treatment, which not only corrects a patient’s prescription but aims to improve the quality of vision. This advanced technology reduces spherical aberrations to decrease glare and improve night vision. The laser also has a unique eye-tracking system which tracks at speeds 10 times faster than movements of the natural eye, helping to ensure exact positioning of the treatment.

Our History

Dr. Marc Sanders founded Diagnostic Eye Center in the Houston medical center in 1998. The practice quickly grew as it became recognized as a center of excellence for cataract surgery, LASIK, and comprehensive eye care. In 2001, optometrist Dr. Aric Welton joined the practice, and a full service optical shop was opened. Having outgrown the space in the medical center, Diagnostic Eye Center moved to its own 16,000 square foot building in the River Oaks/Greenway Plaza area in 2005. A minor surgical suite was opened, the optical shop was expanded with a lab to create glasses on site, and in 2012, the latest and most advanced laser suite was added. Optometrist Dr. Stephanie Lozano joined the practice in 2013, and Dr. Andrew Salem joined the team in 2016, bringing along surgical expertise as a Houston cornea specialist and LASIK surgeon. In 2019, Dr. Elizabeth Bell joined the Diagnostic Eye Center as a graduate of the University of Houston College of Optometry. Dr. Bell specializes in contact lens fitting and ocular disease management.
