Providing the RGV
with the Best Eye Care

Hundreds of patients across South Texas have trusted their eyes
to Dr. Rachel Gleman. We would love the opportunity to make
a difference in your life if you need any treatment options below.

LASIK

LASIK is a type of vision correction surgery in which a laser reshapes your cornea, so you can see clearly without glasses or contact lenses.

Cataract Surgery

A cataract is the progressive thickening and clouding of the eye’s lens, obstructing light passing through the eye to the retina.

Corneal Transplant

If your cornea cannot be healed or repaired, Dr. Gelman may recommend a corneal transplant. This is when the diseased cornea is replaced with a clear, healthy cornea from a human donor.

Refractive Lens Exchange

Refractive Lens Exchange is a type of vision correction surgery that involves using ultrasound to remove the natural lens of the eye and replacing it with an intraocular lens (IOL) to minimize the use of glasses and contacts.

Cross-Linking for Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a non-inflammatory disorder that affects the cornea. The cornea becomes thinned and steepened, resulting in distorted vision, sensitivity to light, and decreased vision.

Pterygium Surgery

Pinguecula is a yellowish, raised growth on the conjunctiva. It’s usually on the side of the eye near your nose, but can happen on the other side too. A pinguecula is a deposit of protein, fat, or calcium.

What Our
Patients Are Saying

“Dr Gelman did my corneal transplant on my left eye, it’s been a week since I had my surgery, I’m already seeing better and I’m doing great. I totally recommend Gelman Vision, you definitely will be in good hands. Truly love how Dr. Gelman cares for her patients. Thankful for her!”

Rebecca G

“I’ve waited to post my review simply to give my honest opinion after having had my refractive lens exchange surgeries 6 months ago; 7/1/21 & 7/6/21, respectively. I am beyond pleased and genuinely grateful to Dr. Gelman for the huge impact she’s made in my life. My vision is 20/20 and there’s been no complications. Highly recommend to anyone having any questions or concerns or if you’re just ready to make a change for yourself, Dr. Gelman and her staff @ Gelman Vision are most professional, helpful, and always friendly. Sincere thanks and much appreciation! 👓 No More!!”

Aurora G

“Dr. Rachel Gelman is an excellent physician. She’s very knowledgeable and informed me of various causes for my eye problems. I had seen four doctors previously and none of them helped me to address my problem. Dr. Gelman’s ideas to help me look promising. I’m so glad I found her. I’m looking forward to her treatments.”

“Above and Beyond service and comfort! Very relaxing environment. This is one Dr’s office I do not mind coming to. Dr Gelman is the sweetest most patient Dr I have been to here in the Valley. Her staff is friendly and the office is very relaxing and as a bonus there is coffee, water and snacks to enjoy while you wait and with the music playing, it makes the environment very peaceful and relaxing.”
