D.A. SAYS: Eagle Mountain, UT

I was amazed at the attention to detail and care I received. They checked my eyes, listened to my concerns and tested my eyes on 6-different pieces of sophisticated instruments that examined and measured every part of my eyes. They explained their diagnosis and recommended the surgery I need and set up the surgery. Amazing staff and clinic.

[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.


Would recommend [them] for LASIK over other places. The staff was great and so was Dr. Pacci. Insanely efficient.

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!

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.

What are myVision Correction Options?

Would you like to experience life with less dependence on glasses or contact lenses? Our experienced eye surgeons offer vision correction surgery options with advanced technology and customized treatment plans. LASIK is a popular choice for vision correction and our LASIK surgeons are leaders in the field, but we also recognize that it is not the best choice for everyone. 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

Vision Correction Over 40

Age-related vision changes are very common, and finding a solution that is right for you can be challenging—that is why we offer a wide variety of treatment options vision correction at all ages. After the age of 40, you may notice that your vision is no longer crisp or clear, even with glasses or contacts. Presbyopia, or age-related near vision loss, is a common culprit. In this naturally occurring condition, the eye’s lens stiffens so that it is more difficult to focus up-close.

Treatments that can correct presbyopia and other vision errors include:

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) involves replacing your eye’s natural lens with a custom artificial lens called an IOL. RLE can improve vision for patients with presbyopia and it is also a LASIK alternative for patients who are not candidates for laser vision correction. At The Eye Institute of Utah, we offer a range of advanced IOL options that can reduce or eliminate your need for reading glasses or other corrective lenses.



Monovision is a term for a specialized technique that can be used in a LASIK, PRK, RLE, or custom cataract surgery. Monovision relies on neuroadaptation, which is your brain’s ability to process near and far images together in order to see clearly. In
