Houston’s Leading Provider of LASIK
Your eyes are a precious gift and the lens through which you process all of life’s experiences. One of the most important health-related decisions you will make is choosing the right surgeon to perform your vision correction. There are many options for vision correction in Houston, but the choice is clear: International EyeCare Laser & Lifestyle Center.
While there are many ways to judge the quality of a practice, experience is key. Only a truly qualified team should be trusted to correct subpar vision. You want to relax and breathe a little easier, knowing your surgeon has worked with a large volume of patients and has a solid track record of success.
International EyeCare Laser & Lifestyle Center has a reputation of experience and excellence. Led by Dr. Charles R. Moore, our surgeons are some of Houston’s leading vision correction professionals. To date, our medical team has performed more than 80,000 LASIK and cataract procedures.
Leaders in the Industry
Another great indicator of the caliber of a practice is the clientele to which it caters. At International EyeCare, we are proud that more than 100 surgeons, physicians and fellow ophthalmologists have selected us to perform their vision correction. We feel honored that these industry leaders have allowed us to treat them. It is a testament to our skill that so many of our fellow physicians trust us with their care.
We are also proud to be able to find or create a solution where others cannot. Patients that are told they are not good candidates for LASIK at other practices often visit us for a second opinion, and we find creative solutions to meet their needs.
Our surgical team has believed in the power of LASIK since its inception. Our surgeons played a critical role in the history of LASIK in this country. In fact, Dr. Moore was instrumental in the FDA’s initial approval of LASIK. He also helped to design and develop a great deal of LASIK diagnostic and surgical equipment used today.
Our eye surgeons are well versed in a variety of advanced technology, including the revolutionary Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser for custom wave front LASIK. Offering the right pieces of technology enhances the patient experience and leads to better outcomes. An investment in our technology is an investment in the comfort and happiness of our patients.
International EyeCare Laser & Lifestyle Center is one of the best providers of LASIK in Houston! With over 50,000 LASIK procedures performed. To aid you in your vision correction journey, we have provided a list of the most commonly asked questions about LASIK eye surgery. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us!
Does LASIK hurt?
International EyeCare Laser & Lifestyle Center uses specially formulated “eye drop” anesthesia to numb the eye, our patients report little, if any discomfort, both during and after the procedure.
Will I be able to drive home after my procedure??
No. Our patients are given a mild sedative to relax them before surgery. No one should drive after being given this medication for at least 24 hours. After your procedure, you can expect your vision to be blurry due to the medication and lubricating eye drops administered during the surgery.
Will both eyes be treated on the same day?
Typically, Yes. Our patients prefer the convenience of having both eyes treated on the same day. There are certain conditions where we do not advise both eyes to be treated on the same day. Please contact us for more details.
What should I expect after my LASIK procedure?
After your LASIK surgery, drops are placed in the eye to facilitate the healing process. After your treatment you will need to go home and rest. Sleep tends to be extremely helpful in facilitating the healing process.
Is this procedure permanent?
The improvement after your LASIK eye surgery should last the rest of your life. Through extensive medical experience, we can see that modifications to the cornea are typically permanent. There are rare occasions of regression depending on the pre-operative degree of refractive error, which may be corrected with further surgery called an enhancement. The vast majority of corrected eyes continue to stay in focus.
