Catch of the Day: Jimmy Houston in Arlington

April 2nd, 2015

Jimmy Houston, “America’s Favorite Fisherman,” recently underwent successful laser cataract surgery at the brand new, state-of-the-art Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers in Arlington, Texas.

“I have had many inquire about my eye surgery,” Houston posted on his Facebook page. “It went smoothly, and I was so very pleased with the care I got at the Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers. Thank you, everyone, for your concern and inquiries and especially the prayers. Life is good.”

Houston has been a mainstay in bass fishing tournaments since winning the Oklahoma State Championship as a college senior in 1966. He has fished in 15 Bassmaster Classics, and he has won 10 national fishing tournaments. The two-time Bass Angler Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.) Angler of the Year (1976 & 1986) is an accomplished author, and he hosts “Jimmy Houston Outdoors” which airs on the NBC Sports Network.

“Our entire team was thrilled to have such a charismatic and nationally known celebrity as one of our first laser cataract patients in our new eye center,” said Anthony Evangelista, MD, partner surgeon at Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers.

Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers offers the LenSx® Cataract Laser, the first FDA-approved laser cataract technology. This laser allows physicians to perform certain steps of the cataract procedure that were traditionally performed with a blade. Ophthalmic surgeons Drs. David Kleiman, Anthony Evangelista, Aaron Amacher and Kelly Frasier believe this advanced technology adds to the accuracy and precision of the procedure. In combination with their LifeStyle Lens™ technologies, many cataract patients report they are able to reduce and even sometimes eliminate the need for corrective lenses following Laser Cataract Surgery.
