Consistent Quality and Superior Results

For more than 30 years, Cornea Associates of Texas has provided one-of-a-kind care. Our surgeons and staff are passionate about improving each patient's quality of life through exceptional vision treatments.

State-of-the-Art Vision Correction Our Featured Procedures

Each of our surgeons has participated in the original Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clinical trials for the use of some of the most advanced vision care technology, including the excimer laser used in LASIK surgery. Our suite is equipped with the most sophisticated tools, which help our doctors deliver optimal results. Whether you are undergoing LASIK, PRK, corneal transplant, cataract surgery, or any of the other procedures offered at our practice, you can expect that you are receiving the very best care using the most advanced technology. 


LASIK (or laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis) is a popular type of laser eye surgery that is used to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Our LASIK surgeons use the advanced JNJ Star S4 excimer laser to perform LASIK surgery as precisely and with as minimal risk of surgical complications as possible. We combine our laser technology with advanced iDesign software to plan highly customized surgeries that help patients enjoy long-term clear vision without contact lenses or glasses.

PRK Eye Surgery

Like LASIK eye surgery, PRK (or photorefractive keratectomy) uses a laser to reshape the cornea and correct refractive issues like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. During PRK surgery, our surgeons will use a laser to remove tissue from the cornea, reducing refractive issues and improving your vision. Unlike LASIK surgery, PRK does not require a corneal flap and is a good option for patients who might not qualify for LASIK eye surgery because of thin corneas or irregular astigmatism. However, PRK requires a lengthier recovery time.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is the only way to get rid of cataracts that cloud your eye lenses and make driving, reading, and everyday tasks more difficult. Our eye surgeons can perform cataract surgery to remove your clouded lens and replace it with an intraocular lens (IOL). At our offices in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Plano, TX, we offer premium IOLs that are designed to help you see clearly at different distances. After undergoing cataract surgery with premium IOLs, many patients are able to see clearly at near or far distances without wearing glasses or contact lenses.

Corneal Surgery

Corneal diseases or corneal irregularities can make it difficult to see and put your vision at risk. If you or a loved one are suffering from corneal disease or corneal abnormalities, our cornea specialists can provide advanced surgical care. Depending on your needs, our doctors can perform a corneal transplant, partial cornea transplant, corneal cross-linking, or place Intacs® corneal implants to help you overcome your vision issues and see clearly once again.

Dr Zaffos and all of his assistants (ie the techs) are wonderful. I've had both cataract removal and a cornea transplant. I couldn't be happier. This office and Dr Zaffos are so informative and I feel so relaxed around everyone. I would recommend Dr Zaffos and his staff to everyone. Love this place

The office is beautiful and I didn’t have to wait long. All the staff is attentive and caring. I am incredibly impressed with Dr. Zaffros! He is the fifth doctor I’ve seen regarding my eye problem and the first to be able to provide a diagnosis and treatment. Such a relief! This place is top notch.
