Read about how LASIK, IntraLASE, CK Surgery and other types of refractive surgery have improved the quality of life of these patients from Houston and around the world - (Individual results may vary).
I can’t tell you how happy I am! I wish I could’ve done this a long time ago…With a 9-month old and a 20-month old, I had no time for contacts!
Thanks for making it such a nice experience. Everyone was very professional and nice. I’ll be sending more people your way…
I can see a fly on top of a telephone pole!!!
In case you can’t tell, I am very pleased with the outcome. I was seeing 20/20 after one week. I couldn’t believe how quick and painless the whole thing was. I am amazed at this whole process. I still need reading glasses from time to time, but I knew that going in and it hasn’t been a problem. It still amazes me that I can open my eyes in the morning and see crystal clear…Thanks so much for everything!!
It’s unbelievable the new world I have. I have no problems and have far better vision than I had with glasses. I had my one month follow up last week and the Doctor said I was doing great. I am really pleased and have referred you to many friends.
Thank you very much for all the trouble you took over me and giving me all the confidence I needed very badly.
I have never seen so well ever in my life. You have given me a new lease on life. Once again, many thanks.
I wish to express to all of you my extreme gratitude for all that you have done for me.
There are no words that adequately convey my thanks. The gift of sight which you have given to me will remain always on my mind and in my heart. May God continue to guide your skilled hands, allowing you to share this marvelous experience with many others. Thank you again.
I am writing this to express my appreciation for what you and your staff have done for me.
Glasses and contact lenses have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Last year I was faced with the possibility of no longer being able to wear contacts. The vision I had with glasses was so poor that I could not pass a driving eye test. This left me with two options: wear glasses and give up driving and my livelihood or have surgery on my eyes and pray.
The latter was my choice, so after some researching I scheduled LASIK surgery…All the pain, worry and money were of no consequence when compared with the results.
For the first time in over fourteen years of marriage, I can actually see my husband’s face when I kiss him goodnight right before we turn the lights off.
…My gratitude is so deep that to speak of it always brings me to tears…Still, I am unable to find the correct words to express how I feel for the wonderful difference you have made in my life. Most people would think that you are just doing your jobs, but just choosing this type of work shows what special people you are.
If you are having any doubts about having the LASIK procedure, read on.
I am a board certified ophthalmologists with a busy cataract-refractive surgery practice in New York City. I have been doing for a long time, and probably know too much about refractive surgery. So who more nervous and scared about having refractive surgery on themselves than me – nobody. I thought about everything – my wife and kids, home and mortgage, career, playing tennis, etc.
I thought about it long and hard for 3 years. But I could not wear my contacts anymore – I became intolerant. Sure I wore glasses – sunglasses all the time (even at night) yet I became depressed. As a friendly outgoing person, I became withdrawn. I even worked without glasses and contacts. Having been a Rhodes scholar – world class Olympic fencer I even stopped sports. Even worse.
So when I decided to go for it – who? Didn’t have to research as an outsider – patient but I knew. Didn’t trust anybody in NYC – either ophthalmologists I trained or ones who trained me in LASIK I decided (don’t forget I’m also very neurotic) without reservation on Dr. Stephen Slade – a colleague, highly respected refractive surgeon and superb technician. Also he’s a good Southern guy. Over 100 ophthalmologists picked him for a reason.
My life has changed – a major transformation in terms of psyche, career and life. A decision even I can’t neurose about. I can’t thank him and his staff enough. I went for it and it was a success.
I am an engineer, and pretty compulsive. I researched LASIK Houston and LASIK surgeons for a long time before I chose Dr. Slade. He fit the bill for me. He is the “Doctor’s Doctor” and actually wrote the main best selling textbook on LASIK He spent time and answered all my questions. Again, I’m compulsive and sometimes hard to please but Dr. Slade managed to pass all my tests. The surgery…went great. I see better than ever. Overall a great experience.
I am a very active person & my eyes are really important to me. I can’t stand having anyone even getting close to my eyes yet alone touching them. I couldn’t wear contacts because I just couldn’t deal with sticking them in my eyes, but glasses were definitely interfering with my sports.
So, as you can imagine, when I started considering laser refractive surgery I wanted the very best doctor I could find. I researched refractive procedures & doctors for over a year & I can tell you there are some very disturbing issues on the Internet related to these procedures.
But, several of my friends have had LASIK & are doing very well. So well, that I finally overcame my fear & decided to visit the three doctors who were recommended to me. All of these doctors seemed to be very confident & experienced, but only one really took the time to understand my particular concerns & offer me a number of options for the correction of my vision. Dr. Slade, Dr. Baker & their staff thoroughly examined my eyes with equipment I did not see at the other offices & explained everything is minute detail.
I decided to proceed with LASIK I was an absolute basket case on the day of surgery, but Dr. Slade & his staff took a great deal of time to calm my fears & before I knew it the procedure was done.I went home & when I woke up the next morning, I COULD SEE!!! I am now more active than ever & I am really enjoying life without glasses. I see Dr. Slade & Dr. Baker on a regular basis & I can’t tell you how much I appreciate their caring & skill in helping me get through refractive surgery.
Without a doubt, if you are considering refractive vision correction, go see Dr. Slade. He combines “high tech” with “high touch”
If you have cataracts I would recommend that you see Dr. Slade. He is such a nice young man & a very fine doctor. He & his associate Dr. Baker were very nice to me & now I can see so much better than when I had my cataracts.
Dr. Slade & Dr. Baker see me regularly now to make sure my eyes are healthy & that my reading glasses are OK. I really look forward to these visits. I so much enjoy talking with all my friends at Dr. Slade’s office.
