While doing a clinical rotation at the San Diego Naval Hospital, the Naval Commander recognized Dr. Ziskrout’s contributions to the servicemen and servicewomen with a letter of commendation. In the area of pediatrics and binocular vision, his doctoral thesis research pioneered new areas into Attention Deficit Disorder and its potential relationship with eye movements and understanding their complex relationships. As a result, Dr. Ziskrout was invited and presented his research at the American Academy of Optometry, Orlando, Florida.

Post-graduate, Dr. Ziskrout accepted an adjunct clinical faculty position from the University of Houston College of Optometry (UHCO).

In support of optometry, he has given testimony at the State Capitol in Austin, Texas to The House of Representatives regarding optometric laws. As a result, the bill he lobbied for passed, and was signed into law by the governor.

Dr. Ziskrout is recognized as an expert in fitting unique eyes that require complex contact lens designs to improve their challenged vision (such as keratoconus, corneal transplants, RK surgery, corneal trauma, etc.). He is certified as a Paragon CRT specialist, able to reshape corneas via special-designed rigid gas permeable lenses that allow the patient to see throughout the day without wearing glasses or contact lenses.

He enjoys treating and managing eye infections & injuries, dry eyes & allergy eyes, and since 1998 has co-managed LASIK, cataract, and glaucoma surgeries. One of his career highlights includes 7+ years working hand in hand with a select few of Houston’s premier ophthalmologists.
