Your Life

In Better Clarity.

At Sun Laser Vision Center our purpose is to provide you with the safest and most current technology and LASIK treatments available. We are the only practice in El Paso to perform nearly all the major FDA approved surgeries to improve vision including the Visian ICL, Kamra Inlay, Intacs, PRK and blade free all-laser iLASIK. We use the latest technique in small incision cataract surgery combined with topical anesthesia.

Know Your Options

When it comes to your eyes, a one size fits all approach is not always best. We are the only facility in El Paso able to provide you with nearly all vision correction options. With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Foote has performed thousands of LASIK and PRK procedures. But LASIK isn’t always the best choice for everyone. For example, some patients are too nearsighted for LASIK. The Visian EVO manufactured by Staar Medical are FDA approved lens implants designed to fit behind the iris and correct higher levels of nearsightedness. For patients older than 45, the Kamra inlay is a corneal device developed to correct near vision and reduce dependency on reading glasses. Clear lens exchange with distance and near implants are used or extreme nearsightedness. Intacs are corneal implants that correct irregular astigmatism in patients with keratoconus and corneal ectasia. For patients with keratoconus, collagen cross linking with or without laser can stabilize the condition and even improve visual function. Dr. Michael Foote was the first surgeon in the El Paso area to perform many of these procedures and our facility remains the only location providing all of these options.

LASIK Eye Surgery

At Sun Laser Vision Center we have been working consistently to bring the latest and safest technology in laser vision surgery to the El Paso region.  Dr. Michael Foote has been performing laser vision correction surgery since 2005.  Our facility was the first to introduce the IFS femtosecond laser for LASIK and the first to adopt the iDesign imaging system locally.  We are committed to being the leader in vision corrective surgery and we are committed to El Pasoans.

Our goal is to provide you the best possible vision with the technology available while being focused on patient safety. The laser procedures we perform to correct vision include LASIK and PRK. We use the IFS femtosecond laser to perform blade free all laser LASIK. We do not use the mechanical bladed microkeratome. We use the latest iDesign wavefront mapping system for measurement and corrections of the optical imperfections of the eye. The outcomes for our patients are very good and mirror the FDA tests of these systems.
