A pioneer in the field of refractive surgery for vision correction, Dr. Rashid has always been on the forefront of the most current laser vision technologies. After graduating from the U.S. Air Force Academy, Dr. Rashid received his medical degree in 1976 from the Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago. During his career at Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center, Dr. Rashid became the Chief of the Refractive Surgery section and of the Cornea and External Disease Service.

After retiring from the USAF in 1990, he continued as a special consultant to the Air Force Surgeon General for refractive surgery. Dr. Edward Rashid is currently in private practice in San Antonio, Texas where he has performed thousands of the latest laser vision correction procedures including PRK and Custom Intralase LASIK. He established the Alamo Laser Vision Center in 1999 where he currently serves as President and Medical Director. This state-of-the-art facility is one of the most technologically advanced laser centers in the U.S. Dr. Rashid was selected and listed as one of “The Best Doctors In America” and also chosen as one of the “Top Ophthalmologist” in America. Texas Monthly has just named Dr. Rashid as a Texas Super Doctor. He is also honored to serve as the Team Eye Surgeon for the San Antonio Spurs NBA basketball team.

Patient Comments (1)
San Antonio, TX |
I visited this doctor and made the mistake of asking a few technical questions about his experience and the procedure. He got so offended that he refused to proceed with me further. The first duty of the doctor is to empathize with the patient and provide clear answers. Surgery is a business like any other and patients are not stupid as the doctors would like them to be. I have been researching my condition for the past 4 years. Just being a SPURS doctor is enough for this DR.
