Texas Monthly Magazine named Dr Dell 'Super Doctor' and in 2005 he was named one of America's Top Ophthalmologists for the third year in a row by the Consumers' Research Council of America with more Central Texas and Austin eye Doctors choosing him to perform their own eye surgery than any other surgeon.

In this role, he has been instrumental in bringing new technology to the United States. He continues to work closely with ophthalmic companies in the development of new products and instruments, and is himself the inventor of several innovative medical devices used by hundreds of LASIK and cataract Surgeons.
