K. S. SAYS Park City, UT

Every examination and office visit I have at the Eye Institute reaffirms what a caring, professional, friendly, and competent staff and doctors that work there. Very organized and efficient. Very little waiting time and a great appointment reminder system.

C. C. SAYS: Sandy, UT

Dr. Chapman is great. Answered every question I had. The procedure went well. The nurse who prepped me was very pleasant and thorough. Would definitely recommend Dr. Chapman to family or friends.

L. C. SAYS: Herriman, UT

[The] staff is very kind, helpful, and professional. I wouldn't go anywhere else but The Eye Institute for my vision care.

M.S. SAYS: Sandy, UT

I was treated with kindness and everyone was very helpful [in] answering my questions. The doctor explained things in words that I could understand and was very helpful.

C.A. SAYS: Salt Lake City, UT

This was the greatest experience I have had in any medical situation! They were all very helpful. Very kind! Explained everything precisely. I had each eye done separately and in the end, I could not believe how well I could see! I loved my experience completely! I will recommend them to everyone!

Joe S. SAYS:

The staff is very professional and they have very good attention to cleanliness. Dr. Wolsey was excellent in finding the best course of action to solve my cataract issues tailored to my specific needs. I look forward to my surgery. Update: I’ve had my two cataract surgeries and they were a great success! The nurses were attentive and had great attitudes. The surgery was done before I knew it. No pain at all. Dr. Woolsey is great!

MD. SAYS: Salt Lake City, UT

I can’t say enough about how wonderful my experience was. I needed cataract surgery & frankly, I was nervous & anxious about the diagnosis. From the moment I walked through the door, everyone I dealt with from the receptionist to the nurses, to the anesthesiologist, to Dr. Chapman, who performed my surgery, was extremely professional & compassionate. They made my experience pleasant & wonderful. As for the end result: two words, home run! My vision is fantastic now. All I can say is I highly recommend the Eye Institute of Utah to anyone who needs eye surgery. I promise you will receive the best care possible. A++++! 5 enthusiastic stars! By the way, it didn’t hurt at all & I was anxious for nothing. Easy procedure, I promise. Believe me when I say I was sweating it. Thank you [to] everyone who took care of me. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for all of you!

J. M. SAYS: Salt Lake City, UT

Always capable, positive, informative visits. Very little wait time as well. My vision is vastly improved with the cataract surgery that I had. Thank you!

E. B. SAYS: Salt Lake City, UT

Very nice staff and thorough and efficient examinations. I received a lot of information, which was very easy to understand and reassuring. Dr. Wolsey is thorough and very concise. Explained the options for standard cataracts lens replacement, pros and cons, and other alternatives. I’m selecting to go to a more advanced lens to minimize the need for glasses for most activities.

E.M. SAYS: Sandy, UT

[Their] service is always the very best. Everyone is so professional! Dr. Zavodni is a super eye doctor. He is always so upbeat and caring. I am so grateful for his care and my cataracts being gone. I have recommended [them] to everyone who is having cataract surgery.

Jake R. SAYS:

A great place for LASIK. The technology. The staff. The doctors. Everything here was super easy, convenient, and they took time to make sure I felt great every step of the way. Would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone!

C.J. SAYS: Kaysville, UT

I have always wanted LASIK and when I consulted at The Eye Institute of Utah I knew this was the place to get it done! They made me feel so comfortable and took the time to answer all of my questions. Dr. Wolsey was amazing and made sure I knew what the process was. I recommend this place to everyone!

J.D. SAYS: Gunnison, UT

Absolutely incredible. Can't say thanks enough to all the staff and doctors. Well worth it. Only my first day after my LASIK procedure but I am astounded and amazed. It's incredible to be able to wake up and see. And wow can I see. Thank you so very much to [The] Eye Institute of Utah. Absolutely incredible.

M.G. SAYS: Salt Lake City, UT

The staff at The Eye Institute are friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Passi spent time educating me about my options for IOL and LASIK. This education gave me confidence in proceeding with eye surgery that I was very nervous about. The procedures went smoothly and I was walked through each step of the process during surgery and there was minimal discomfort. I am thrilled with the outcome! Thank you [The] Eye Institute [Of Utah] team for making this a positive experience.

Sue F. SAYS:

I had PRK monovision done with Dr. Passi. I couldn't be happier. He explained everything before the procedure and what to expect after. I love my new clear vision. You are greeted at the door by the friendliest staff as well as his staff helping with exams. The PRK procedure itself was quick and painless. Everything was explained before the procedure, during and sent me home with easy to follow aftercare instructions. The only regret I have is waiting so long to have PRK done. So happy I choose The Eye Institute of Utah.

We offer a range of LASIK alternatives for patients with dry eye concerns, high degrees of myopia, presbyopia, or thin corneas. Our experts can guide you through your options, including affordable financing, so you can feel confident on your journey to improved vision!

LASIK/PRK Visian ICL Surgery Vision Correction Over 40 Custom Cataract Surgery


At The Eye Institute of Utah, we use advanced technology and techniques as part of our commitment to patient safety and satisfaction. LASIK improves vision by reshaping the cornea to correct refractive errors. Our LASIK surgeons use the WaveLight FS200 Femtosecond laser for blade-free LASIK and we offer Contoura™ Vision Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction for more accurate and effective vision correction.

If you’ve been told you are not a candidate for LASIK, we have options for you too, including PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) vision correction surgery. PRK is a well-established vision correction surgery that can be a good choice for patients with corneal irregularities or dry eye, as well as those with very active lifestyles or professions.

Ideal LASIK or PRK Candidates:

  • People between the ages of 18 and 50, with a history of stable vision
  • Mild to moderate levels of myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism
  • Healthy eyes with no history of disease

Visian ICL Surgery

icl-featured-imageVisian ICL™ Implantable Collamer® Lens, sometimes called an implantable contact lens, is a vision correction procedure that has many benefits for patients seeking an alternative to LASIK or PRK. It is especially well-suited for patients with high level prescriptions and those with dry eye concerns. Visian ICL is a micro-thin prescription lens made of special collamer material that is biocompatible and offers UV protection. The lens is placed just under the eye’s surface, in front of your natural lens. It is not visible once in place and can be removed by your eye surgeon if needed. Visian Toric ICL® is an option for patients seeking correction for astigmatism.

You may be a good candidate for the Visian ICL if you:

  • Are between the age of 21 and 45
  • Are nearsighted (-3D to -20D in prescription)
  • Have had a stable prescription for at least 1 year
