The Power List 2016

Stephen Slade

Slade and Baker Vision Center, Houston, Texas

Slade has had many firsts in his career: aside from pioneering LASIK eye surgery, he also has the longest experience with bladeless LASIK in the world. He was the first US surgeon to perform custom LASIK ablation based in topography, and to implant a lens for presbyopia. Slade has produced many articles, book chapters, holds multiple patents, and has authored nine textbooks on refractive surgery.
