More About Us

What is the “Manrique Difference?” At Manrique Custom Vision, it’s more than just a marketing slogan. It’s about understanding that each individual has specific needs when it comes to their eyes. Dr. Carlos Manrique believes his personalized service is the best way to develop a customized vision plan to suit each patient’s needs. To Dr. Manrique, freeing patients from the inconveniences of glasses or contact lenses is more than just a job. “When I went into medicine, I went into it as a calling,” explained Dr. Manrique. “This is a gift that I have been given, to be able to help everybody get rid of their contacts or glasses. It’s amazing to see my patients smile after surgery after being stuck with glasses all of their life. It is extremely gratifying to be able to help a fellow human being. It just feels good.” Now in his 21st year of practice, Dr. Manrique has performed nearly 60-thousand LASIK procedures. He uses only the latest FDA-approved technology, like the WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser system – the newest and fastest laser on the market. Manrique Custom Vision uses this system to address a wide range of vision issues, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, as well as addressing glare and halo issues at night. The procedure is completely safe, even in the era of COVID-19. “We make it extremely safe,” said Dr. Manrique. “There’s nothing more important to me than the safety of my patients, and the safety of those who work in my office. We have consistently followed all of the rules and regulations and it has worked because we have been able to safely perform Lasik on many patients during this pandemic.” Beyond Lasik, Manrique Custom Vision treats a variety of visionrelated issues, including cataract surgery, Intacs corneal implants, KAMRA™ Inlay for presbyopia, cross-linking for the treatment of progressive keratoconus, Visian Implantable Collamer Lenses (Visian ICL), Refractive Lens Exchange, and Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA) for patients with conditions such as thin corneas. “About ten percent of the people are not candidates Lasik,” said Dr. Manrique. “But we can still offer multiple technologies to help them. We have laser technology for cataract surgery. We can also help patients who have had changes to the cornea that are related to other things. So, there’s many different things that we can do.” The decision to have laser vision correction is an investment not only in the quality of your vision, but in the quality of your life. Manrique Custom Vision provides monthly payment options to fit any budget so you can focus on the wonder of your new vision without worrying about how you can afford it. “My goal is to make sure everything is affordable,” said Dr. Manrique. “We offer different payment plans to make this easily affordable for our patients. People with glasses or contacts spend a ton of money year after year on eye exams, new glasses and contact lenses, and maintenance. I offer people a chance to get rid of their glasses or contacts for the same or maybe less money than they’re spending now. That’s the way I look at it, they may be saving money in the long-run.” Dr. Manrique is a dedicated Rio Grande Valley eye doctor who enjoys treating his friends, family, and fellow health professionals. To him, winning The Monitor’s Readers’ Choice Award for Favorite Lasik surgeon is an honor. “I want to thank everybody in the Valley,” said Dr. Manrique. “It has been a joy to have so many people trust their eyes to me and my staff. This is like the tenth year in a row that we have won this award. I think my patients appreciate the fact that we love what we do, and we love to do it for the community, because the results are literally life-changing. It’s definitely an honor.” Manrique Custom Vision Centers can be found throughout South Texas.
