The staff and Doctors are the best! They took good care of me and made me feel comfortable at all times. Dr. Chapman is the BEST!
Dr. Zavodni, the team, and the staff were great! They explained everything which kept me calm and put me at ease.
I love the Eye Institute. Everyone is so friendly and knowledgeable. Even if I call and have a question, if they cannot answer it, they will check with someone else to get the answer. I had cataract surgery and Dr. Wolsey was wonderful.
Everyone was so kind and pleasant. It was a quick and easy appointment. I was so glad to hear true, honest opinions and suggestions for the treatment of my eyes. The service was amazing!
Always greeted promptly and warmly by front office staff. Technicians are always professional and friendly. Dr. Wosley is an amazing surgeon and clinician. Always enjoy coming to the Eye Institute.
First of all, I chose The Eye Institute of Utah because a VA nurse had told me that they "do so much more" when performing cataract surgery. I was very pleased with the entire operation. Every staff member was extremely professional, very friendly, and very informative about what their job was during the procedures. Dr. Chapman was marvelous the way she went about her work. I apologize for not remembering each of her staff members' names. because they were all marvelous as well. It was quite the experience to have cataracts taken out and the whole crew made it easy to endure.
I've been going to the Eye Institute for several years. I've always received excellent care. All of the staff are pleasant and patient. They explain everything. I recently had cataract surgery. I was nervous. They gave me Valium. The surgery was short with only minor discomfort. Dr. Z. was great. I received good post-operative instructions. I'm very happy with the results. It was like getting my first glasses many years ago. Highly recommend.
[The] staff is welcoming and professional. [The] physicians and medical staff are extremely competent. I felt very well cared for during my cataract removal and was kept well informed during the procedure.
[I] went in to get the build-up on my lens laser removed from a cataract I had taken out in ‘13. They did a great job and it was done within about an hour. Great patient care.
Staff was very kind. [They] took the time to explain every detail of the process. [It was a] very pleasant experience, considering I was scared to death of the cataract surgery and getting new panoptic lenses. [I] would certainly recommend Dr. Z and The Eye Institute of Utah staff.
This place is fabulous! I like a dummy missed my consultation for lasix that was two days prior thinking it was on a different day, even though they had sent me a reminder text before! So when I showed up, and learned I had missed my appointment they were so sweet and accommodating! They even managed to squeeze me in THAT hour! All the staff was very nice and informative. I do believe all my regular eye care needs will be scheduled there from now on!
The team there is absolutely amazing! I had ICL surgery within the last month and felt like everyone involved truly cares. I highly recommend this facility! Thank you, Stacie, Lexie, Laurie, and Dr. Zavodni for the amazing care you have given me! I seriously can’t thank you guys enough! Five stars all the way.
Love all of the doctors and amazing staff here!! They are incredibly friendly and professional. I'm so pleased with my Lasik eye surgery, and they really helped me feel confident and comfortable with the entire procedure. I HIGHLY recommend going to The Eye Institute of Utah!
Everyone was so nice and welcoming. I really liked the doctor as well. He was very good at explaining everything to me in a way that I understood and he answered all my questions. I’m super excited to have my LASIK procedure done here.
My experience was excellent. Everyone was personable and the LASIK procedure was so quick and painless. The next day I woke up with tears of joy as I looked out to my backyard. After 23 years of glasses and contacts, I could see things so crystal, clearly. There is no way to describe this moment and I hope anyone considering this surgery will commit to it!
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 e
