This was the second facility I visited before deciding that this was the place where I wanted to go. If surgery can be pleasant, this was it! Dr. Z. is so very personable, kind, and attentive. The staff was extremely nurturing and reassuring before and during the first eye surgery that I was able to relax and look forward without anxiety to the same treatment for the second eye. I most definitely recommend The Eye Institute of Utah over any other place for one's eye care.
Very high caliber staff. Dr. Z. is fabulous.
The staff was thoughtful and caring, and the building was warm and comforting. Everyone took [the] time to listen to my concerns and provide information. And the surgery went smoothly and pain-free.
I'm honored to say that Dr. Darcy Wolsey and her team are exceptional professionals in every sense of the words. Their thoroughness, friendliness, thoughtfulness, and encouragement, from my experience, is a satisfaction guarantee. I would recommend The Eye Institute of Utah in a heartbeat!
Each and every visit, The Eye Institute of Utah is uniformly professional and pleasant. It’s always nice to be treated by a smiling and personable staff. I have [the] utmost confidence in the doctors and the care they provide.
I had RLE surgery at the Eye Institute of Utah. My vision is perfect! Dr. Passi is wonderful. Everyone there was so kind. Didn't even know such a thing existed. I called them and told them I wanted to see what my options were, and now I don't need my three pairs of glasses! 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!
Dr. Passi did an amazing job! The process of having cataract surgery was one I didn't look forward to, however, Dr. Passi, along with anesthesiologist Tatiana Warren, combined for a compassionate, successful surgery, which put all my concerns at ease, before, during, and after both procedures! My eyesight after both procedures far exceeds what my expectations were going in! I would gladly recommend The Eye Institute of Utah! TEN STARS!
Everyone at The Eye Institute of Utah is friendly, knowledgeable, and concerned for everyone’s health! Special shout out to Dr. Wolsey who did my cataract surgery.
Everyone was so nice and helpful. They took the time to answer all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable with having cataract surgery.
I am grateful and thankful for my medical team and Dr. Chapman...totally feeling blessed that my surgery went as well as it did...and would highly recommend The Eye Institute of Utah to anyone who needs cataract surgery...
Had an amazing experience and Dr. Wolsey was great! LASIK is life-changing!
Great doctor and staff. Highly recommend this location for ICL.
Had LASIK years ago. It's been great. The people here are kind and caring. I'm having it done again. I would recommend them to everyone.
In my opinion The Eye Institute of Utah is the best complete Eye clinic in Utah. I have been going there for 20 years. They performed LASIK surgery on both [of my] eyes and now they removed a cataract and installed a lens from one eye. They have been doing checkups and evaluations on my eyes most of my life. I trust them with my eyesight.
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 chose The Eye Institute of Utah.
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!
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:
Visian 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:
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) 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 a monovision procedure, one eye is corrected for distance vision and the other is corrected for near vision. If your eye doctor thinks that monovision may be right for you they will have you do a trial period with contact lenses or glasses in order to confirm that the technique is effective.
Cataracts are a very common eye condition in which the lens of the eye
