Dr. Sanders' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Sanders "Dr. Marc Sanders is a recognized leader in cataract and refractive surgery. Among the first surgeons to perform laser vision correction over fifteen years ago, Dr. Sanders has stayed at the forefront of this rapidly changing field. He was one of the first surgeons to offer new techniques, such as femtosecond all-laser LASIK, custom wavefront optimized LASIK, refractive lens exchange, laser assisted cataract surgery with the LenSx and Catalys lasers, and presbyopic intraocular lenses. Dr. Sanders is a part-time professor at Baylor College of Medicine where he teaches surgeons in training. Committed to education and research, Dr. Sanders has published articles in the leading ophthalmic journals and has participated in clinical trials. It should come as no surprise that many physicians and surgeons in the Houston area have chosen Dr. Sanders to perform their own eye surgery. The fact that these doctors have inside knowledge of the abilities of all eye surgeons in the area is a testament to Dr. Sanders' surgical skill. Dr. Sanders has also operated on a variety of local and national celebrities, and he ranks as one of the top doctors in various surveys, including H-Texas Magazine, Houstonia, and others. Dr. Sanders is committed to using the best technology available. That is why he outfitted his new laser suite with the WaveLight® FS200 Femtosecond Laser and the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Excimer Laser. With this new state of the art facility, he can accommodate his patients right in his office. The center not only has the newest lasers, but was designed from the ground up to provide patients the best experience possible. Dr. Sanders is a magna cum laude graduate of Duke University and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa honor society. He graduated from Baylor College of Medicine, where he now holds a faculty position. He is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a member of both the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery."
