LASIK Vision Correction at Woodlands Custom Vision

Dr. Manrique De Lara performs laser eye surgery using state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and surgical lasers. He was one of the first surgeons in Texas to offer IntraLase, a blade-free laser eye surgery coupled with the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q, the fastest excimer laser system with eye mapping and eye tracking technology.

This highly sophisticated surgical method allows Dr. Manrique De Lara to develop an individualized treatment plan, detect each patient's unique refractive errors and effectively reshape the cornea, thereby delivering optimal vision correction results. Dr. Manrique De Lara also offers PRK, Verisyse and Visian implantable contact lenses for patients who do not qualify for LASIK eye surgery.

Cataract Surgery with Implant Lenses at Woodlands Custom Vision

Dr. Manrique De Lara offers the advanced “no-stitch” cataract surgery, during which the eye's cataract-diseased lens is extracted and replaced with a high-tech implant for clearer vision. Intraocular lens implants (IOLs) are designed to restore vision at most distances, often greatly reducing the need for glasses or contact lenses. For his Rio Grande Valley cataract surgery patients, Dr. Manrique De Lara offers a range of IOLs, including AcrySof ReSTOR, which can also be used to treat presbyopia (age-related loss of reading vision).
