LUKE W. SAYS

[I had a] life-changing experience made possible by a great company full of awesome staff!

MAGGIE S. SAYS:

[The] staff is always helpful and kind. [The] exams were thorough and the doctor did a great job of explaining the current situation and all my options!

E. J. SAYS: Salt Lake City, UT

There is nothing more important to us than our eyes. This is why when we have to have them worked on, I would imagine, all of us are very nervous. The Eye Institute [of Utah] has perfected working with patients. From the front desk to all the nurses, they perform their exams in a calming manner. I will tell all my friends how perfect the visit went. Thanks so much.

R. D. SAYS: Holladay, UT

Fantastic facility. I was extremely impressed with every one of the staff members and [the] doctor. Everyone was thorough, kind, and efficient. Love your clinic!

R. M. SAYS: Park City, UT

The Eye Institute of Utah is always professional and courteous. I highly recommend them.

BILL K. SAYS:

I first had an eye exam with Dr. Carter. It was done very professionally and everyone was very friendly. He determined I had cataracts and needed surgery. He recommended Dr. Bretz. I [would] meet with her at a later date and set up my surgery. I liked that everything was explained about what would happen and when. The days of the surgery went very well. My wife had her cataracts done a couple [of] years ago at a different center. She felt I got a lot better treatment and explanation of the procedure at The Eye Institute [of Utah] than she did. I had a great experience with everyone I dealt with at The Eye Institute [of Utah]. Would highly recommend their services.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!

KENNETH H. SAYS:

[I] had cataract surgery on both eyes, nine days apart. The entire process has gone very well. Dr. Wolsey and Dr. Bretz were both excellent. The staff at The Eye Institute [of Utah] were excellent as well.

STEPHAN M. SAYS:

Dr. Wolsey is simply the BEST! I have been coming to her for years and my eyes finally got to the point where I required cataract surgery. I had no idea what to expect and was a little nervous. The staff and Dr. Wolsey were amazing! So kind and patient and truly calming. Every person from the desk to the back was fabulous! If you have eye needs, this IS the place to come.

K. S. SAYS: Lehi, UT

I was very impressed with the excellent care and attention I received starting with the front desk, to the technicians who ran tests, and with Dr. Wolsey's team who prepared me for surgery and those who assisted her in surgery. Dr. Wolsey is outstanding. My results were outstanding and the surgery was easy and comfortable for me. It could not have gone better. I had worried [about] cataract surgery for months and was so surprised at how easy and quick it was. I highly recommend Dr. Wolsey and The Eye Institute [of Utah].

C. M. SAYS: Salt Lake City, UT

I was very encouraged by Dr. Wolsey's evaluation of my 6-month checkup after Cataract Surgery in early November. After checking both eyes, she also checked the prescription in my new glasses and said the prescription was just right. I would recommend The Eye Institute [of Utah] for all types of eye surgeries.

CLAIRE W. SAYS:

I had LASIK in April 2021 and my only regret is not having done this sooner. Dr. Wolsey is excellent and I felt like I was in great hands at every step along the way. All of the staff at the Eye Institute of Utah were incredibly kind, thoughtful, and professional -- from staff checking you in, to financing staff, and those helping Dr. Wolsey -- I couldn't have been more impressed with the entire experience from my initial consultation to my post-op checkups. Thanks to everyone there for my incredible new vision! Highly recommended, go enjoy life without contacts or glasses!

SKYLER C. SAYS:

[I] got my LASIK here about a year ago and just came in for my 1-year follow-up. They've taken great care of me and my appointments are always smooth and fairly quick. [I] would highly recommend [them] for LASIK and any eye care you might need!

R. M. SAYS: Burley, ID

They were great and made sure everything was good to go before completing the LASIK surgery. They were very organized and I had no issues with them.

D. B. SAYS: Lindon, UT

It was an incredible experience. [The] staff was attentive and kind. Dr. Wolsey went the extra mile to make sure I had the right implant because I had PRK 30 years ago. She nailed it.

E. A. SAYS: Salt Lake City, UT

My LASIK experience here was a breeze! [They] got me in and out quickly. Dr. Zavodni was professional and talked me through the whole procedure. He and both the ladies in the room were wonderful at keeping me calm. I truly felt I was in the best hands and comfortable. It's the day after surgery and my eyes feel great and best of all I can see so clearly! So glad I chose The Eye Institute Of Utah for my LASIK.

LASIK/PRK

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
