**I am in surgical menopause (for 3 years) and I was worried after the post mentioned dry eyes, etc. Please read my outcome if this is your concern** They are corneal specialists/experts....so please consider that when making your decision...on to my review... Corneal Associates is, for LASIK, AS good as it GETS! Just had LASIK this morning by Dr. Gelender. It was amazing. Very thorough assessment, explanation of risks and what to expect pre and post op, and narrative through entire procedure. The nurse even held my hand through it and told me how good I was doing. They kept me calm throughout. It was easy, quick, and painless. Afterward, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND take some ibuprofen for when the drops wear off and definitely sleep the first 4-6 hours so you can bypass the majority of discomfort. Then, it's all amazing. You can see and it feels like a miracle. I am still in awe! My own optometrist referred me here because it is the only place he will go for LASIK. =) Remember, RISK/BENEFIT analysis are key. I have had no negatives, but those who did would have had those same problems anywhere and they were given all the risks before choosing to proceed. Good luck and pick Cornea Associates of Texas. (No, I don't work there...I just am an incredibly satisfied customer after only 14 hours!) Thank you so much Dr. Gelender, Karie, and all the staff who treated me so well!
I really like Dr Kirby. When she removed my cataracts, she gave me her personal telephone number in case of any problem. I had no problems with either of my surgeries. She takes Medicare. We have become friends over the years. We swap stories about our travels and books we like. She is simply a nice lady as well as an excellent doctor. I highly recommend you go to her. Jim Rose
My doctor sent me here to have LASIK. He said this is the only place he would let touch his eyes. They were awesome and I am so happy with the result! They did not make me feel like I was part of a herd of cattle -They even told my neighbor he should not have LASIK after another place was ready to sign him up. I'm very happy and I tell everybody about Cornea Associates.
