The Latest Technology At Eye LASIK Midland
Experience the technology at Eye LASIK Midland.
We are extremely excited with the installation of the latest VISX Star 4 ActiveTrak excimer laser system, which incorporates a unique 3-D eye-tracker. This eye tracker delivers improved laser vision correction.
ActiveTrak actively tracks the patient’s eye and guides the laser. ActiveTrak moves the laser with the eye, keeping the laser and the patient’s pupil precisely aligned during the quick procedure.
This feature along with ActiveTrak’s ability to customize laser vision correction for each individual patient, gives us even more confidence about the expected out-come of laser vision correction. The STAR 4 has a broad range of indication and approvals, and is appropriate for myopic, hyperopic, an astigmatic treatments. The STAR 4 upgrade also positions the VISX laser for wave front technology that is now installed.
The VISX Star 4 is permanently installed at the location where treatments are performed. Eye LASIK Midland has designated a special room for this highly sophisticated instrument. The laser suite features separate cooling, power supply and flooring that meet strict laser requirements. The use of a permanently installed laser reduces the possibility of errors that may occur with portable systems.

If you answered yes to these questions, you may be a candidate for LASIK!
Are you tired of the hassle of glasses? Or struggling with contacts every morning? You may be the perfect candidate for LASIK surgery! We’ll cover some basic questions that will get you started on the path to clear vision.
Do you have generally healthy eyes?
If your eyes are free from corneal abnormalities, scars, infections or eye diseases, you may be a candidate for LASIK surgery.
How old are you?
In order to be a candidate for LASIK surgery, you must be 18 years old. For more information on LASIK age, take a look at our blog, LASIK Age: Too Old Or Too Young?
Can you fix your eyes accurate on a point of light for 1 to 2 minutes?
LASIK patients usually have to stare at a particular spot during a LASIK procedure to ensure best results. Patients must be able to lie flat without any difficulty during this time.
Are you willing to stop wearing contacts before your LASIK procedure?
Contact lenses can affect the results when an eye doctor is determining if you’re a candidate for LASIK Surgery. This is because contacts can change the shape of your cornea.

If you have far-sightedness (long-sightedness) or near-sightedness (short-sightedness), you may have heard the terms myopia and hyperopia. Both are common conditions that require glasses or contacts. You’ve probably struggled most of your life with glasses or contacts and may have even considered LASIK. With myopia or hyperopia, can you still qualify for LASIK? Find out more about the effect of myopia and hyperopia on your vision and your LASIK options!
Myopia is used to define short-sightedness. This means, objects close up are clear, but distant objects appear blurry. This is because light from a distant object forms an image before it reaches the myopic person’s retina. A concave contact lens is required to move the image back to the retina, clarifying the object.
Hyperopia is used to define long-sightedness. In contrast to myopia, this means a nearby object is blurry, while a distant object is clear. This is because the image of the nearby object is formed behind the retina. A convex contact lens is necessary to move the image forward and focuses correctly on the retina.

Deep Green Veggies
Vegetables, (especially the leafy, dark green ones!) can supply antioxidants such as Vitamin C and D. Broccoli, bell peppers and garden peas make an excellent snack choice to supplement eye health.

Brazil nuts, almonds and cashews provide minerals and Vitamin E, another vitamin that has been shown to slow Macular Degeneration.

You may often wonder, “are my eyes too far gone?” or “am I too old for LASIK?” Or, in contrast, “am I old enough for LASIK?” The question of LASIK age is both common and we’re answering it today!
LASIK Age-Too Young?
You’ve seen your child struggle with vision for their entire young life. Whether this be in school, sports, or simply socially, poor vision is a struggle for anyone. It’s a struggle no one deserves. The hassle of ordering and maintaining contacts or keeping glasses is a bother, especially for young people and children. Is your child old enough for LASIK? LASIK is not typically recommended for people 18 years and younger. However, each person should be considered individually to evaluate for eligibility. Ready to request an entirely free consultation for your child? You can do so HERE.
LASIK Age-Too Old?
Are you too old for LASIK? Do you feel like your vision is “too far gone?” Maybe not! While there is not a “maximum LASIK age,” each patient would need to be assessed individually to determine eligibility.
Answering the question of LASIK age…
More than likely, if you wear reading glasses now, you will need reading glasses after LASIK. To qualify for LASIK, your eye health must be good and your vision must be stable. People with cataracts or eye disease may not be candidates for a LASIK procedure. Again, each individual should be specifically assessed to provide an answer for a person’s “maximum LASIK age.”
Next, you may be wondering the duration of LASIK surgery results. ” Well, you’re in luck! Take a look at our blog, “How Long Do LASIK Results Last?” If you have other questions on LASIK or other laser eye surgery procedures, we’ll answer them in our blog, LASIK FAQs. Any other questions?
