" I am ecstatic about my visit with Dr. Vital. I was losing my sight as a result of diabetic cataracts. Dr. V's office treated me like family and their wisdom is simply incredible. I was totally at ease. After my surgery, I simply found myself in tears as a result of finally being able to see my face, as well as my wife's and children's faces. I felt as though I had received a new prize in life! Thank YOU so much for what YOU do. Even though it's your profession, and you've experienced this for years , this was the first time in my life that I've experienced this limitation. I didn't know how much I missed my eyesight! Blessings to all of YOU! I thoroughly recommend Dr. Vital whose experiencing this problem!!"

"Always attentive, as quick as can be, and definitely very knowledgeable."

"Dr. Vital is a wonderful doctor. He's very compassionate and makes you feel that he cares (and he truly does) and puts your mind at ease. I had my surgery done by Dr. Vital over a year ago. I am more than pleased with the outcome. I am 60 plus years old and I had worn eye glasses all my life. After my first surgery with Dr. Vital , I could actually see with out my glasses. I could drive at night and believe me, this was a miracle too me. My only regret is not having the surgery done earlier. Dr. Vital is a great asset to your practice. He's an excellent doctor, eye surgeon and he cares about his patients. He treats his patients like family. Thank you, Dr. Vital."


Doctor Vital

I’ve been fascinated by eyes ever since my sixth grade science teacher assigned our class a project on the organs of the human body.  I still have that report and it has led me on a fantastic journey.  My team and I pledge to provide excellent care, communication, and service to help you see, look, and feel better.

I enjoy performing comprehensive eye exams as well as treating complex ocular issues such as infections, trauma, corneal dystrophies, corneal scars, pterygea, cataracts and other anterior segment problems. My office works hard to accommodate major and minor ocular emergencies quickly.  My patients come from all over the Houston Metroplex and in some cases beyond the borders of Texas.

My philosophy for the practice of ophthalmology is to deliver quality medical and surgical interventions, when medically necessary, on an individualized basis, that help to preserve and improve your ocular and general health.

Are premium lenses necessary for cataract surgery?
Posted on Monday April 30, 2018

Premium lenses are not a necessary requirement for cataract surgery.  However, most patients will have a intraocular lens (IOL) placed inside the eye at the time of cataract surgery.  It is easy for patients and doctors to get caught up in “the next new thing”.  However, the quality of the standard monofocal intraocular lenses covered...

Zepto for cataract surgery is a fantastic option for premium, toric intraocular lenses and complex cases.  Cataract surgery is like removing the chocolate (the cataract) from an green M&M candy and leaving the green candy coating behind.  The new artificial lens is then placed inside the green candy coating shell.  Eye doctors call that green...
