LASIK Eye Surgery Houston Texas

Dr. Marc Sanders founded Diagnostic Eye Center in the Houston area in 1998 with a goal of providing patients with the most advanced eye care in a comfortable and patient friendly setting. Having studied and trained at some of the top institutions, Dr. Sanders saw that it required more than just the latest technology to make for the best patient experience. He established Diagnostic Eye Center in the heart of the Texas Medical Center and focused on creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that would make Houston patients feel welcome and comfortable. The practice grew very quickly as it became recognized as a center of excellence for cataract surgery, LASIK, and general eye exams in Houston. In 2001, Dr. Aric Welton joined Diagnostic Eye Center as a therapeutic optometrist, and a full service optical shop was opened. Having outgrown the space in the medical center, Diagnostic Eye Center moved to its own building in the River Oaks/Greenway Plaza area in 2005. This location was an instant success with easy parking and a convenient location. Furthermore, with 16,000 square feet, this location provided room for growth. 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. In 2013, Dr. Stephanie Lozano joined the practice as a therapeutic optometrist, and Dr. Andrew Salem completed the team in 2016, bringing along surgical expertise as a Houston cornea specialist.

Our Technology

We invite you to explore our website to find out more about the services we provide. Our goal is to keep your eyes healthy and to help you to see as well as possible. We offer the most advanced LASIK surgery using the combination of the Alcon WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser and the Alcon WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q wavefront optimized laser. Staying on the forefront of cataract surgery, Dr. Sanders and Dr. Salem are some of the few physicians to now offer femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery using the LenSx® Laser or the Catalys® Precision Laser System. With recent advances in lens technology, many Houston cataract patients can now see well without glasses.

When asked what sets our practice apart from others, Dr. Sanders says, “Our goal is to treat patients as we would want to be treated and to ensure that each patient receives the best care possible.” This approach has made Diagnostic Eye Center one of the leading eye care centers in Houston optometry and ophthalmology.
