Experienced LASIK specialist and ophthalmologist Dr. Kevin H. Merkley has joined the UTMB Health Eye Center.

Dr. Merkley has more than 17 years of experience in private practice as a cataract, cornea and refractive surgeon. He holds both a medical degree and a master's degree in business administration.

He has performed more than 20,000 ophthalmic procedures including corneal transplants, LASIK, PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) and astigmatic corrections.

"The exciting thing about refractive surgery is that new technologies continue to come forward as older technologies continue to improve," Dr. Merkley said. "This will allow us to treat an increasingly wide spectrum of patients and refractive errors with even more predictable outcomes than we have enjoyed in the past."

Dr. Merkley treats a wide range of eye conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma, cornea/external disease, diabetic eye disease, macular degeneration, and refractive errors.

Dr. Merkley also serves on the faculty of the UTMB Health Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, using his wealth of experience to train UTMB ophthalmology residents.

Department Chairman Dr. Bernard Godley said, "Dr. Merkley's extensive experience, particularly in LASIK and PRK, as well as his patient-focused philosophy, make him a great addition to our team."

Dr. Merkley added, "I look forward to meeting new patients in Southeast Texas and helping them to enjoy better vision. We truly live in a remarkable time!"

I was satisfied.Sep 25,2019
For all the good things/experiences at Dr. Merkley's office, I have been sadly disappointed at all the wait times - I did not get called back to the exam room for 40 minutes past my appt time, then had several other delays. My total time from appt time was just over 2 hours. That makes recommending his practice an issue for me.Aug 05,2019
