Because The Eye Institute’s LASIK team consisting of Dr. Darcy Wolsey, Dr. Robert Cionni and Dr. Zachary Zavodni are some of the most experienced in the Intermountain West. We utilize all laser technology, making your procedure a “blade-free” experience. When you consider the caliber of the surgeons and the technology used at The Eye Institute of Utah, you can feel confident that you are getting the best in vision correction.
LASIK, or Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis, has been a vision correction option since the late 1990′s in the US. It is an ingenious procedure that uses a cool laser beam to reshape the cornea, correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. As a result, a high percentage of our patients have had their vision restored to 20/20 or better. In addition, The Eye Institute of Utah now offers Contoura™ Vision Topography-Guided Laser Vision Correction, a revolutionary laser technique designed to enhance treatment outcomes and help patients improve the quality of their vision to a greater degree than ever before.
I can wear sunglasses without having to put contacts in and I no longer have to worry about my contact falling out when swimming or participating in sports. I don’t know why I waited so long to have LASIK! I should have done it sooner!*
