LASIK and Cataract Surgeon

Dr. Marc Sanders is a recognized leader in refractive cataract surgery and laser vision correction. Among the first surgeons to perform laser vision correction in the 1990s, Dr. Sanders has stayed at the forefront of this rapidly changing field. He was one of the first surgeons to offer new techniques, such as femtosecond all-laser LASIK, custom wavefront optimized LASIK, refractive lens exchange, laser-assisted cataract surgery with the LenSx Laser, and premium intraocular lenses. Committed to education and research, Dr. Sanders has published articles in the leading ophthalmic journals and has participated in clinical trials.

It should come as no surprise that many physicians and surgeons in the Houston area have chosen Dr. Sanders to perform their own eye surgery. The fact that these doctors have inside knowledge of the abilities of all eye surgeons in the area is a testament to Dr. Sanders’ surgical skill. Dr. Sanders has also operated on a variety of local and national celebrities, and he ranks as one of the top doctors in various surveys, including H-Texas Magazine and Houstonia Magazine.

Dr. Sanders is committed to using the best technology available. That is why he outfitted his laser suite with the WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser and the WaveLight® EX500 Excimer Laser. With this state of the art facility, he can accommodate his patients right in his office. The center not only has the newest lasers but was designed from the ground up to provide patients with the best experience possible.

Dr. Sanders is a magna cum laude graduate of Duke University and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa honor society. He earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, where he now holds a faculty position and teaches surgeons in training. He went on to complete his Ophthalmology residency at the LSU Oschner Eye Center in Louisiana, then returned to Houston to complete a fellowship in Anterior Segment at Baylor College of Medicine.  Dr. Sanders also serves as adjunct faculty at the University of Houston College of Optometry.  He is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a member of both the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
