First SMILE Cases Texas

BREAKING NEWS: Zeiss has listed Slade & Baker Vision Center at the top of the list to perform the SMILE procedure, a LASIK alternative, after receiving its long-awaited FDA approval.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Slade, Dr. Walton and all the doctors and team members involved in this big first for our clinic.

It takes a whole team to get something like this to happen and the entire team has been involved since the start with the Visumax SMILE clinical studies, prior to FDA approval. It is no longer part of a study as it is FDA approved!

Everyone remembers hoping for this day and we are so happy to report it finally came. To learn more about SMILE please visit our SMILE page. To read about the FDA approval of SMILE and what that may mean to you, read our blog post about it!

YOU may be a great candidate for the SMILE procedure if:

  • You have nearsightedness
  • You are at least 22 years of age
  • You have had no previous eye surgery
  • Your prescription is generally stable (if you have a pair of glasses at least a year old, we can check this for you)
  • You are in good general health and ocular health

We are excited with all of the phone calls and patients we are getting that are interested in a new alternative to LASIK! If after reading this you are really interested to see whether you are a candidate or not, there is only one way to find out! Call us at
