“You can get a hearing aid, but you can’t replace your sight.”rnrnWe couldn’t have said it better ourselves! Read this blog to hear about a patient who wore contacts and glasses all his life but can now see without them!
‘I’m happy’ is an understatement. My life is completely changed! When you start wearing glasses at 8 years old, you get really used to dealing with vision problems by the time you turn 48. Mrs. Miller’s vision just got worse and worse after her 8th birthday. Read how her life completely changed with surgery at our office in this blog post!

Robert Watson, the owner of Patient Education Concepts, could have gone to over 8,000 ophthalmologists when it came time to have HIS femtosecond laser cataract surgery. He came to us. Click on this blog to read his touching letter and learn about cataract surgery after having had refractive surgery (like LASIK, RK) earlier in life!
LASIK has been the popular choice for refractive eye surgery for as long as many of us can remember. It has become a common term that everyone is familiar with. We get asked all the time about any new updates or options for LASIK.
Although there are only a small number of options, there is FINALLY…….a long awaited UPDATE!

Before surgery, Ms. Janet had bad distance vision and did not drive at night anymore because the glare was bothering her so much. She said the lens in her left eye was so thick it made her look like “Mr. McGoo”!
These glasses were the icing on the cake for Ms. Janet, and she then decided, this isn’t going to work. She quickly made an appointment with our office to come in for a cataract evaluation.
When heavily immersed in a profession, you sometimes lose sight of what outsiders and the public may think about the surgeries and patients you are around daily.
This happens to all of us lucky staff members at Slade & Baker Vision Center.
We were the first clinical trial site in all of Texas to provide the SMILE procedure to patients. There are only FIVE sites in the entire United States.
Slade & Baker Vision Center’s very own Clinical Research Coordinator, Chadisty M. Pauly has been honored as Clinical Research Coordinator of the Year by RVO for the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay Study!!!

For those of you who have not heard of keratoconus, it is a corneal disease that causes structural changes within the cornea causing the cornea to thin and bulge outward into a steeper, irregular, more conical shape than its normal gradual curve. Keratoconus can cause substantial visual loss of vision, image distortion, streaking of lights, sensitivity to light, and multiple images, etc. Keratoconus affects about one person in a thousand, and yet the exact cause of it is uncertain.
Dr. Slade has been involved with finding a safe treatment for keratoconus from its discovery and this has been an ongoing effort for several years. He has been interviewed and featured in this article of Ocular Surgery News. Click on this blog to read more!
As you all know, we usually don’t take the time to sit in front of our computers and actually write a review when we had a GOOD experience.
We usually only take the time to login, create a username/password and type (very loudly and strongly) when we are MAD, ANGRY or feel like we were treated badly somewhere, whether it be a restaurant, doctors office or wherever.
We are happy to report that our happy patients have been sharing experiences with us that are not only positive but so beautiful. Their words make us realize why we wake up and do what we do every day.
