Corneal Collagen


Have you ever been told by an eyecare professional that you are not a good candidate for laser corrective surgery? You may have a disorder of the cornea that can be treated with brand new corneal collagen cross-linking technology. A consultation with Dr. Sloan Rush can help determine the most appropriate medical treatment for eyes that cannot have laser corrective surgery due to an underlying disease or high astigmatism.

Vivity lenses restore visual performance at all times, in all conditions

So Many Lives Transformed

Reece McKillip

Having my vision corrected with LASIK at Rush Eye Associates was absolutely an investment…in fact it was a very good investment. I did the math on how long it would take me paying for contact lenses, eye doctor appointments, prescription glasses, prescriptions, frames, lenses for the next 20 years. And there’s no comparison. LASIK is a MUCH better investment and I have MUCH better vision!

Michael Eitzen

My hobbies include hunting, fishing, hiking and just being outdoors. I love action sports, like riding four-wheelers and pretty much anything outside. LASIK is very important to me because especially as a hunter or a fisherman seeing what’s on the hill, what’s out in the field is awesome and without having to rely on contacts or glasses is great. I hated having to pack an extra pair of contacts or take an extra pair of glasses in case something happened. But I’m going to tell you that with LASIK, I’m in the clear. There’s no stress. It’s SO nice!

Kelly Podzemny

LASIK at Rush Eye Associates was a gift to myself. It was the gift of vision, the gift of clarity, and especially the gift of freedom. One thing I didn't think about going into LASIK was that I've never worn sunglasses because I didn't want to bring an extra pair of prescription sunglasses everywhere I went. Now that I've had LASIK and can wear sunglasses…I'm like, ‘Oh, wow, I can actually see in the sun now!’ So that's a cool LASIK gift that wasn't unexpected

Kami Collins

I am proud of myself. I’m glad that I made an investment in myself. I’m glad that I took the time and got over the fear of having LASIK. It was a great investment and I’m proud that I took that step in order to get out there and, you know, challenge myself, put it to God and just say, “Okay. This is something I want, and you give me the means and the courage to do it, so let’s go get this done.” Life is most definitely better in focus and I appreciate the freedom I have in order to live life the way I’ve been able to. I am blessed to have LASIK by the Rush’s.

Michael Gardiner

I already think having the trifocal Panoptix lens implant has been a good investment. I'm glad that I spent the extra money. The simplicity that it's brought to my life - from not having to carry glasses around and being able to do my job so much easier – it just makes life so much easier. I’m still working and need to see well at all ranges without my glasses. I have no regrets at all. It worked out just perfectly for me.

Reece McKillip

The experience with the Rush family is the primary thing that made me choose them. Obviously being local to Amarillo and not having to travel is a good, good upside. My local optometrist recommended them and I wasn't nervous at all about using them with their combined experience and everything. And everybody in my family that has ever dealt with them and anybody else locally, they have an amazing reputation around here.
