Stephen G. Slade, MD (Slade & Baker Vision Center, Houston). Dr. Slade is a partner in Slade & Baker. He was the first surgeon in the United States to perform LASIK and has the nation's longest experience with INTRALASE, a "bladeless" Lasik. He was also first in the United States to implant the Crystalens, a phacoemulsification lens for presbyopia. He has directed LASIK training of more than 8,000 other refractive surgeons worldwide, including the vast majority of surgeons now doing LASIK in the United States. Dr. Slade was chosen by more than 450 of his fellow ophthalmologists to perform surgery on their own eyes.
Dr. Slade earned his MD from University of Texas School of Medicine at the Texas Medical Center. He completed a residency in ophthalmology in New Orleans and a fellowship in corneal surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.
