Moms & Dads LASIK Giveaway

The Eye Institute of Utah proudly presents our 12th Annual Moms & Dads LASIK Giveaway! Over the past year, Moms and Dads have taken on so much more in their role as parents. For some, that means they became their child’s assistant teacher, and for others, they became their coach. Either way, it’s been A LOT and they deserve a show of gratitude.

In the last decade, we’ve been honored to gift more than 40 lucky winners throughout our community with the gift of clear vision.

“Moms and dads throughout our community selflessly commit countless hours and resources to improve the lives of their family and friends. They rarely take time for themselves and never ask for anything in return. We are honored that we can return the favor by offering the gift of vision correction as a ‘thank you’ to four deserving parents.”

~ Dr. Darcy Wolsey Director of LASIK Services at The Eye Institute of Utah

Phase #1: Mom Nominations

Finalists will be selected at random and will be notified and pre-screened for candidacy during the week after the contest ends, and the final four winners will be publicly announced within two weeks after the contest concludes.

Contest Winner Ashley’s PRK Story

Ashley won PRK at The Eye Institute of Utah in our 2016 contest. For this busy mom who starts her day at 6am, vision correction has enabled her to spend time with her kids without being distracted by the irritation of contact lenses.

Contest Winner Chad’s LASIK Story

Chad was a 2017 winner of LASIK at The Eye Institute of Utah. This father of six enjoys being in nature and hiking, which is a lot easier with LASIK. He knows that time goes by quickly, and he’s thrilled to have improved vision to see his kids grow up.


Five Reasons Parents Need LASIK

The benefits of being less dependent on glasses or contacts appeal to lots of different people, but they are especially valuable for moms and dads. Some of the top benefits of LASIK for parents include:

  1. Streamline the Morning Routine Between breakfast, finding everyone’s shoes, signing permission slips, and getting to the bus stop on time, mornings with kids can get hectic. Save time you would spend searching for glasses or fumbling with contacts.
  2. Never Miss a Minute The little moments can make the best memories and they can’t be replicated. Don’t miss a first step, a sweet look, or a funny face because you were missing your glasses or contacts.
  3. Save Money The long term cost of contacts adds up and anyone who has had a pair of glasses accidentally destroyed by a toddler knows how expensive a good pair can be.
  4. Feel Safer Middle of the night emergencies can be scary for anyone, but they are extra stressful when you have little ones to worry about and you can’t see because you can’t find your glasses or need time to put your contacts in.
  5. Look Great Worrying about your appearance can take a backseat when you become a parent, but you deserve to look great and feel confident without glasses!

Nominations are now closed.

We want to extend a special thanks to everyone that took the time to enter, and we wish you all the very best of luck!

We will be randomly selecting and screening the winners between April 29th and May 6th, so make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to find out who wins!
