      I was in denial about needing cataract surgery, but Dr. Saavedra confirmed that I did. Had the surgery and now I can see clearly.

      I just moved from New York and was in need of a new eye doctor. Dr. Saavedra and the office staff are all excellent! Best eye care experience I've had. The office is clean and nice. Staff is polite and cheerful. He was very informative and knowledgeable. I'm glad I found my new eye doctor in Houston.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
