Dr. Arendt’s LASIK Story

Dr. Lily Arendt remembers getting her first pair of contact lenses in the 4th grade. With years of contact lens wear she ultimately developed contact lens-related dry eye. Wearing her lenses for 8+ hours a day became more and more difficult due to her dryness symptoms. Because of this, she didn’t think that LASIK would be for her, but during her LASIK evaluation at Parkhurst NuVision she learned she was a great candidate! Her dryness symptoms were caused by her contact lenses and she knew this because when she went days without wearing them, her eyes felt good as new. Today, she is thrilled with her vision after LASIK and her eyes feel so much better! After her own experience, Dr. Arendt loves educating patients with dry eye about the refractive options that are best for them.

Education & Experience

Dr. Lily Arendt completed her residency in Refractive Surgery and Ocular Disease at Parkhurst NuVision. A native of Green Bay, Wisconsin, Dr. Arendt completed a Bachelor of Science in Biology from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois before moving to Houston to pursue her dream of becoming an optometrist. She graduated summa cum laude as a Doctor of Optometry from the University of Houston College of Optometry.

Alongside her studies and clinical care, Dr. Arendt served as President of the Student Texas Optometric Association, where she advocated to expand access to vision care for Texans. She was selected to be a clinical Teaching Assistant for three consecutive years, which she valued greatly as it reinforced her love of teaching.
