Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)
PRK was the first vision correction surgery to be approved by the FDA, and has helped millions of patients achieve clearer vision. We perform PRK to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, helping patients see the world more clearly with little to no need for glasses and contacts. PRK is often a great option for patients who do not qualify for LASIK. Our eye doctors perform a thorough assessment during your Refractive Surgery consultation and will discuss which treatment option is right for you.
EVO Visian ICL™
EVO Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens™) helps our patients achieve incredibly sharp and clear vision, even if they aren’t good candidates for LASIK or PRK. The EVO ICL also provides UV protection and is reversible, making it possible for us to adapt treatment to patients’ changing vision needs.
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
During refractive lens exchange, the natural lens of the eye is replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to improve vision. Because we offer a full range of IOL options, we can fully customize each patient’s vision correction. RLE may be preferred for patients with presbyopia who are already using reading glasses or bifocals.
Refractive Lens Exchange IOL Options
Presbyopia, or age-related near vision loss, is a frustrating aspect of the eye’s aging process that begins to affect everybody in their 40s. There are many treatment options available, including reading glasses, contacts, or refractive surgery. We also offer an exciting new option: the revolutionary VUITY® eye drop, which can make it easier to read and engage in other up-close tasks.
Laser Cataract Surgery
Diagnostic Eye Center offers the latest advancements in laser cataract surgery technology and a full range of premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs), allowing our patients to achieve better vision than ever before. Every patient is different, and our trusted eye surgeons will thoroughly examine your eyes and recommend the best options for your visual needs.
Cataract Surgery Take Our Cataract Self-Test IOL Options
Micro-invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS)
Traditionally, glaucoma treatment involves using eye drops or undergoing invasive eye surgery to lower the pressure inside the eye and prevent vision loss. Diagnostic Eye Center is proud to offer another option to our patients with Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS). These procedures are often performed in conjunction with cataract surgery and are done through a very small incision.
Keratoconus occurs when the cornea progressively thins and becomes cone-shaped, causing significant visual impairment. Often vision cannot be fully correcting with glasses alone. At Diagnostic Eye Center, we offer customized contact lenses, including Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) and Scleral lenses, to achieve your best possible vision.
A pterygium is a raised growth on the outer layer of the eye. Pterygia are benign, but can cause irritation, redness, and other uncomfortable symptoms. In many cases, a pterygium can be treated with prescription eye drops, but in some cases pterygia need to be surgically removed. Our Houston ophthalmologists can discuss your surgical treatment options, as well as methods to prevent recurrence.
Dry Eye Disease affects almost 5 million Americans, and one treatment does not fit all. Dry eye symptoms may include grittiness, watery eyes, blurred vision, redness, and light sensitivity. The doctors at Diagnostic Eye Center will assess your specific type of dry eye and can recommend a customized treatment plan that works for you.
At Diagnostic Eye Center, your comprehensive eye exam includes a full assessment of your eye health and is the most important step to maintaining your sight. Our Houston eye doctors will ensure all of your questions are answered, as well as address any of your vision needs. We recommend a full eye exam at least once a year.
Diagnostic Eye Center offers a full optical shop with the latest advancements in lens and frame designs. With the new VisiOffice 2 System, our skilled opticians can take precise and digital measurements for your glasses, as well as visually compare frame choices to help in your selection process. We offer a wide selection of frame choices, and our opticians are highly experienced in helping you choose the best frame and lenses to suit your personality and lifestyle.
From soft to toric to scleral lenses, our Houston optometrists can take care of all your contact lens needs. We specialize in fitting the most complex corneas, particularly for patients with keratoconus or those with prior eye surgery, as well as Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) lenses for myopia control.
