Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 28, 2013
One of the nation’s top eye surgeons has been honored for her work in Houston, TX. Houston eye care and cosmetic surgeon,Mary T. Green, M.D., Ph.D, F.A.C.S., of Eye Excellence, has been awarded the Sightpath 2012 Top Surgeon Award. According to Sightpath, recipients of this award are, “Distinguished leaders in refractive surgery for demonstrating surgical expertise and a continued pursuit of exceptional patient care through the use of the most advanced technology and surgical techniques.”
Dr. Green’s path to becoming one of Houston’s best LASIK and Cataract surgeons was certainly not the traditional route. Dr. Green actually first earned her title through obtaining a Ph.D in microbiology. For years she spent time as a research microbiologist, raising a family, and often moving across the country, due to her husband who was in the oil business. It wasn’t until later that she attended the Baylor School of Medicine, fell in love with microsurgery and the inner workings of the human eye, and became an ophthalmologist specializing in blade free LASIK and cataract surgery.
Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, or LASIK, is a procedure used to reduce or eliminate dependency on glasses or contacts for patients who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. Blade-free LASIK is performed with an excimer laser to change the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye.
Dr. Green opened Eye Excellence and has since been specializing in cataract removal, LASIK, as well as providing general eye care in Houston, TX. Dr. Green claims the 2012 Top Surgeon Award was a team effort and credits her amazing staff at Eye Excellence. “At Eye Excellence we are a family and we want all of our patients to feel the same way,” says Dr. Green. “From the moment they walk in the door we want them to know they are receiving the best care, the best technology, the best experience, and the best service. That’s really what made this award happen.”
