Excellent service and very friendly people. It was a very comfortable experience.
The best place I’ve ever been to have my eyes checked and [taken] care of. The people there are truly caring and decent to be around. I get the feeling they really care what happens to my vision. To me, it looks like the staff and crew and doctors are all one big happy family and it reflects to the patients. Thank you so much for everything you do. Thank you for my vision.
My wife and I were very impressed with Dr. Carter and his entire team. The front desk staff were friendly and courteous and helped us feel comfortable with COVID guidelines. The eye exams were very thorough, and all questions were answered. We highly recommend The Eye Institute of Utah.
The entire staff at the Eye Institute of Utah is OUTSTANDING!
I was glad face masks and distancing was required. Clean, modern, uncrowded waiting area. Latest glaucoma and eye health testing equipment and competent staff. Dr. Chapman was knowledgeable about my past history, and listened to me and answered all my concerns.
I love how everyone I came in contact with in the office was so friendly and helpful. I am so glad I got LASIK done. It was a very short procedure and easy to go through.
I got LASIK done here about a month back and the process was quick and efficient, while also friendly and engaged. I was nervous going in and they helped me feel right at home. Despite some side effects immediately following the procedure (which cleared up by the next day), I never felt anxious thanks to the professionalism and competence of everyone there. They were very patient and thorough in response to questions. Follow ups have been just as good as the first visit. Cannot recommend enough.
Deciding to get ICL surgery at 26 to correct my vision was not an easy decision. I had never had any type of surgery and I also have an inactive retinal disease. Dr. Zavodni assured me that refractive surgery was still possible for me. Five months later my vision is great and the surgery did not affect my retinal disease, just as Dr. Zavodni assured me it would not happen. My other eye doctors have even commented on how great my lenses were placed. Dr. Zavodni’s surgical skills and bedside manner are second to none, especially for him being so young too!
My experience was amazing! My surgeon was super sweet and understanding when I needed a moment and when I cried because I could read a simple clock...I will definitely refer The Eye Institute to anyone who is thinking about LASIK.
I participated in a PRK study with The Eye Institute of Utah and couldn’t be happier with my results. Dr. Woolsey is awesome and the staff is all very professional. Highly recommend The Eye Institute!
Outstanding care! I traveled to the eye institute from Tennessee for this simple procedure, YAG laser capsulotomy, because I wanted it done by Dr. Cionni. The care I received two and a half years ago for my cataract surgery was world-class. Thanks to Dr. Cionni and the entire staff!
Fantastic service! The staff was professional, cheerful, and helpful. [My] cataract procedure was done quickly and painlessly. My vision returned to 20/20 within 24 hours. Highly recommend.
Dr. Chapman was very kind and explained everything regarding my upcoming cataract surgery and was very reassuring.
From the moment I walked in the door, I was impressed with the care and professionalism of the staff. Often clinical settings are sterile and officious, but the Eye Institute is different. I felt that every single member of the staff took pride in the work they do but also went out of their way to make me feel cared for and welcome. The procedure (cataract surgery) was made surprisingly comfortable by the skill of Dr. Wolsey and the entire staff. Thank you!
I had cataract surgery by Dr. Cionni at The Eye Institute of Utah. My outcome was fantastic. All of my interactions with staff, whether in the clinic or the surgery center were professional and pleasant. I would highly recommend the Eye Institute of Utah for all eye issues.
Since its approval by the F.D.A. in 1999, LASIK has become a household name in the area of surgical vision correction, but many people are unaware that there a variety of types of vision correction surgery available beyond LASIK that are vastly successful. Many people are not well-suited for LASIK due to high degrees of myopia, thin corneas, severe dry eye or other factors. It’s important to understand the full variety of options available as you begin your journey to clear vision!
LASIK and PRK are both popular forms of laser vision correction surgery. With LASIK, our eye surgeons utilize the WaveLight FS200 Femtosecond laser to create a flap on the front of the eye (cornea). The flap is then folded back and a second laser is used to reshape the cornea and correct the imperfections in the patient’s vision. Once the second laser treatment is complete, the surgeon will replace the corneal flap, which will then act as a natural bandage. With LASIK, most patients are seeing clearly almost immediately after the procedure, and by the day after surgery, patients often return to work and regular daily activities with little to no discomfort.
PRK is a very similar laser vision correction procedure. Many patients that have irregular shaped corneas or steeping, dry eye, or very active lifestyles may be better suited for PRK than LASIK. Like LASIK, a laser is used to correct irregularities in the eye to correct vision problems. With PRK, no corneal flap is created. Instead, a chemical solution is used to dissolve the top layer of the cornea called the epithelium. After the epithelium is removed, the surgeon will use the WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser to reshape the cornea and correct the refractive error to correct the patient’s vision. The surgeon will place a bandage contact lens on the eye for 5-7 days while the eye heals. PRK does have a longer recovery time and may take longer for the patient to obtain the best vision.
