By insisting on the highest standards of operations and performance, our goal at our Houston eye center is to achieve the best results for our patients. Patients from all around the world seek the professional ophthalmology and LASIK eye surgery services of Stephen Slade, MD, FACS. Dr. Slade is a Houston, Texas native that specializes in vision correction and offers his patients an extensive list of options to help achieve their best vision. In 1991 Dr. Slade became the first surgeon in the United States to perform LASIK. Aside from pioneering LASIK eye surgery, Dr. Stephen Slade also has the longest experience with "Bladeless LASIK" or LASIK performed with the Intralase method. The Intralase method involves the use of a femtosecond laser that creates the corneal flap in LASIK surgery. Dr. Stephen Slade was also the first in the US to use accommodating intraocular lenses and Laser Cataract Surgery. Laser Cataract Surgery uses a laser to perform steps previously done by hand to add precision and accuracy to cataract surgery. Dr. Stephen Slade has performed LASIK and other types of refractive surgery on tens of thousands of patients and hundreds of his fellow eye surgeons from Houston and around the world.
