More About LASIK Vision Correction at Eye Center of Texas

Eye Center of Texas uses the latest laser vision technology and treatment techniques to deliver high-quality vision correction results to all patients.Drs. Ahmed, Mayo and Wade use leading-edge laser technology for customized vision correction treatment. Eye Center of Texas exclusively uses the iLASIK “All Laser” bladeless surgery technique which is proven to provide superior safety and superior vision compared to traditional blade LASIK surgery.

The surgeons also utilize wavefront imaging technology to create a unique “fingerprint” of the eye’s unique refractive errors, including nearly imperceptible errors called higher order aberrations. They then use this information to calibrate the excimer laser used to re-contour the curvature of the cornea.

The LASIK surgeon begins by using the IntraLase femtosecond laser to create a small flap in the cornea. He gently lifts back the flap to access the corneal tissue underneath. Using the calibrated excimer laser, the surgeon then reshapes the curvature of the cornea to correct the refractive error causing the patient’s nearsightedness, farsightedness and / or astigmatism. Once the surgeon is satisfied with the newly contoured cornea, he carefully returns the corneal flap back to its initial position, where it naturally re-bonds to the eye without the need for sutures.

Dr. Ahmed, Dr. Mayo and Dr. Wade’s Houston LASIK patients do not experience any pain during the procedure. They typically notice an improvement in vision 24 to 48 hours after LASIK surgery. Patients are happy to discover that they no longer need to rely on daily eyewear to see clearly. And more than 99 percent of patients attain 20/20 vision or better following LASIK surgery.

LASIK Success Story

“My Lasik procedure experience was GREAT from start to finish. When I came to Dr. Wade and the Eye Center of Texas, my prescription was somewhere around 20/80…and now I have 20/25 vision. Everything went perfectly; I am so pleased with my results. I actually had LASIK surgery years ago but needed to have it done again. Dr. Wade was able to do my surgery, fix what other doctors has missed and without any complications. Dr. Wade and his staff were awesome! They were friendly, informative, and thorough. It makes it easy to speak highly of the expertise and quality of their work when I know firsthand.” —Erin Austin, Radio personality on The Bull, 100.3

More About Our LASIK Surgeons

Yasir Ahmed, M.D.Yasir Ahmed, M.D. is a Baltimore native who graduated cum laude from the University of Maryland with degrees in physiology and neurobiology in 2008. Four years later, he earned his doctorate from Brown University’s Alpert Medical School where he did rotations for Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. He completed a medical internship at Harvard’s Mount Auburn Hospital and an ophthalmology residency at Penn State before participating in a cornea and external fellowship at Wills Eye Hospital at Thomas Jefferson University in 2016.

Prior to joining Eye Center of Texas, Dr. Ahmed worked in Northern Pennsylvania in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area at a high-volume surgical practice where he was one of the only cornea specialists in the region. This unique opportunity helped him to hone his surgical skills and become recognized as a leader in his field. This expertise is why he has been invited to present at numerous conferences and published in a variety of reputable academic journals on topics including LASIK and cataract surgery. Dr. Ahmed is a member of the Texas Medical Association, the Harris County Medical Society, the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.

Mark L. Mayo, M.D.Mark L.

Dr. Mayo then earned his medical degree at Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, again graduating at the top of his class and earning membership into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. He next completed a medical internship at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas before fulfilling a three-year residency in ophthalmology at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, Pa., where he was elected chief resident his final year.

Edward C. Wade, M.D., F.A.C.S.Edward C. Wade, M.D., F.A.C.S., graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Illinois, and was first in his class at Baylor College of Medicine. He completed his ophthalmology residency at Baylor College of Medicine, where he was named chief resident. Then, he completed a fellowship program in retinal disease and surgery at the prestigious Bascom-Palmer Eye Institute in Miami. Dr. Wade returned to Houston and co-founded the Eye Center of Texas. Over the course of his career, he has been recognized as a top LASIK and cataract surgeon. VISX named him one of the “Top 100 LASIK Surgeons in the United States,” and he was one of the first cataract surgeons in Houston to offer bladeless cataract surgery. Dr. Wade lectures around the world on a variety of eye care topics; he is also extensively published.

Since each person’s eyes are unique, LASIK surgery is not always the best option for vision correction. In some cases, patients might not be candidates for LASIK, or they may experience a degree of nearsightedness that cannot be successfully corrected with the refractive laser procedure. The good news is, Dr. Yasir Ahmed and Dr. Edward Wade offer patients the EVO Visian Implantable Collamer® Lens procedure.  EVO can often be an effective solution for many individuals who have moderate to severe nearsightedness (myopia), and who have been told LASIK is not right for them. For those with astigmatism in addition to myopia, the EVO Toric ICL is specifically designed to help improve their sight and correct blurriness.
