An Open Letter to My Patients

From a very young age, I was stuck behind glasses or contacts. And as someone who has always loved to be active, it was quite limiting.

But all that changed a few years ago, when I underwent my vision correction procedure. Now my vision is 20/10 – better than 20/20! Suddenly, the world was at my fingertips and my life improved in so many ways – everything from my surgical skill to my ability to work out regularly (and enjoy it) improved after my vision was fixed.

I am so grateful for modern vision correction – it has truly transformed my life for the better. And I want to share that transformative experience with each of our patients at SuraVision.

I chose ophthalmology as a career because I saw and personally experienced the opportunity to make a tremendous improvement in patients’ quality of life by improving their vision and treating their blindness. 

  • Cataract surgery patients tell me they can finally drive safely
  • Young parents tell me they are able to better care for their children in the middle of the night. 
  • Frontline healthcare workers share how they can do their jobs more easily without foggy glasses or the strain caused by hours of contact lens use. 

These are just a few examples of success stories that remind me how fortunate we are to serve such amazing patients here at SuraVision.

Every patient has a unique story, and I would be honored to play a part in yours. When you come to see us, I am happy to share my personal experience with you. We will answer every question you have, and make sure you are confident and empowered to make the decision that’s best for your unique eyes and the life you deserve.

SuraVision - The Houston LASIK Center with One Focus: Advanced Vision Correction

Most Houston LASIK places like to do “everything eyes.” This is not the case at SuraVision. You won’t find glasses and contacts for sale. You can’t even book an annual eye exam with us. Why not? Because we believe in the Collaborative Care model, in which we partner with Optometric Physicians in the community who specialize in these primary eye care services.

In turn, we are able to focus on what we do best – changing lives through advanced vision correction surgery. With this goal in mind, we have invested in modern technology and have assembled a team that is passionate about vision correction surgery in order to maximize safety and provide the best possible outcomes for each patient and their unique eyes. Our narrow focus allows us to spend plenty of time with each patient to design and deliver a customized vision correction plan for each of our patients.
