Paul Michael Mann, MD FACS

Dr. Mike Mann

Dr. Mike Mann founded Mann Eye as a solo practitioner in October of 1977. Under his vision and guidance, Mann Eye Institute has grown to 17 locations in Houston and Austin and is nationally recognized as one of the premier eye care practices in the country. 

Beyond leading Mann Eye Institute for more than four decades, Dr. Mann has a passion for investing in the communities Mann Eye Institute serves as evidenced by his many philanthropic endeavors.


Dr. Mann completed his undergraduate work at Centenary College and earned his medical degree from LSU School of Medicine. He completed his internship at Baylor College of Medicine and his Ophthalmology Residency was at Tulane University. Dr. Mann proudly served his country from 1970-1973 as a Flight Surgeon with the rank of Major in the United States Air Force. He was honorably discharged in 1973 and served in the USAF Reserves until 1977 when he founded Mann Eye Institute. 


Dr. Mann is board-certified by the American Academy of Ophthalmology and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Over the years, he has participated in many FDA clinical studies, lectured on results, and developed new techniques and products to improve the surgical outcomes of his patients.

Dr. Mann pioneered laser vision correction (LASIK) surgery with Ralph Berkeley, MD, in the early 1990s. Today LASIK is the most common vision correction procedure performed worldwide. Dr. Mann has personally performed over 40,000 LASIK cases and 50,000 Cataract cases. His philosophy of patient care is reflected throughout the entire practice.

Mann Eye Institute was one of the first practices in Texas to offer the advanced laser technologies of WaveLight Excimer Laser for LASIK and the first in the US to use Catalys Femtosecond Laser for cataract surgery.

Visionary Leadership

Dr. Mann was one of the first eye surgeons in the country to integrate ophthalmology and optometry in the early 1980s, hiring and training optometrists in clinical assessment and surgical care. Additionally, he was one of the first eye surgeons in Texas to develop and build AAAHC Medicare-approved outpatient ambulatory surgery centers (ASC).

Dr. Mann serves on the Board of Directors for Windsor Group, a nationally acclaimed group of ophthalmic practices. He also currently serves on the Board of Centenary College.


Throughout his career, Dr. Mann has made many charitable donations and has generously given of his time. He embodies a culture of giving back that is exemplified in ways large and small, is embraced by the entire Mann Eye family and can be felt throughout the many communities Mann Eye Institute serves.
