When considering LASIK, PRK, or ICL, as with any kind of surgery, the primary considerations should be safety and results. At Hoopes Vision, our commitment is, and has always been, providing our patients with the safest, most effective, most advanced vision correction procedures available anywhere.
While our main goal is to provide patients with the very best in surgical vision correction by placing the newest technology in the hands of the most experienced surgeons, we also work to bring this level of treatment within the reach of almost any budget.
Vision correction surgery represents a significant investment, and it’s understandable that someone looking into these life-changing procedures would want the best available value for his or her money. This is good news for Hoopes Vision patients, as people are often surprised to find that the price of LASIK, PRK, or ICL at Hoopes Vision is comparable in price to the so-called “discount” centers. In fact, once you factor in the post-operative care and the lifetime See Clearly Guarantee – both of which are included in the price of surgery at Hoopes Vision, whereas they are separate costs at many centers – Hoopes Vision looks like a better value than ever.
Here are some ways that many of our patients have found helpful in making vision correction at Hoopes Vision even more affordable:
Determining Your LASIK Cost
The price of LASIK varies according to the type of laser procedure that is best for the patient. We offer a free, no-obligation LASIK exam with our doctors and LASIK surgeons to help each patient determine if he or she is a good candidate, and to determine the cost of their individual LASIK. The final cost of the procedure averages about $2000 per eye, and we offer several convenient payment options to help make it affordable.
Hoopes Vision is proud to offer financing through Care Credit. We have several different payment plans available, including no-interest financing for up to 18 and 24 months, or extended terms of up to 60 months. Plans are available to make LASIK fit into nearly any budget.
Details on Special Financing Offer Valid on CareCredit account. A minimum purchase amount may be required for promotional plans longer than 6 months in duration.

Subject to approval by GE Money Bank.
Medical Savings Accounts
Vision correction surgery is eligible for Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and medical Flex Spending Accounts (FSA). This means patients can use pre-tax funds to pay for these life-changing procedures. Depending on the patient’s tax bracket, this can mean a savings of 20% or more.
The IRS has determined that LASIK is a tax-deductible medical expense. This ruling may give you an additional income tax deduction if you have LASIK performed.
Many patients use credit cards to pay for their LASIK eye surgeries. We accept most credit cards.

Hoopes Vision was the first LASIK practice in Salt Lake City to embrace the improved safety and precision of blade-free, all-laser LASIK. Over a decade later, we remain the most experienced provider of blade-free LASIK in Utah. By owning our own femtosecond laser platforms, we help make this advanced technology as affordable as possible for our patients.Learn More
Hoopes Vision was the first practice in Utah to offer wavefront-optimized custom LASIK and PRK to our patients, doing so nearly five full years before any other provider in the state. We are still by far the most experienced provider of wavefront-optimized procedures in Utah. The economies of scale, and our practice of purchasing our own lasers, translate to cost savings which are then passed on to patients.Learn More
For patients who may not be candidates for blade-free LASIK, PRK can be an outstanding alternative, offering similarly excellent long-term results for patients with thin or irregularly shaped corneas, high prescriptions, or a combination of those factors. PRK is also very affordable and comes with the same postoperative care and See Clearly Guarantee as LASIK.Learn More
Hoopes Vision has the most experienced team of LASIK surgeons in Utah, and the most experienced by far with such technological advances as blade-free and wavefront-optimized LASIK. This leads to a confidence in our results that is backed by a free lifetime See Clearly Guarantee – something that many LASIK providers offer only at additional cost, if they offer it at all.Meet the Doctors

Having my Lasik treatments done by Hoopes Vision was a wonderful experience! They were kind and very professional. Medical procedures of any kind usually make me very nervous. However, the people at Hoopes Vision made sure I was comfortable and understood every procedure from the start. They took the time to explain what I should expect from the actual Lasik procedure and each pre and post-operative visit. It was a great experience. I would definitely recommend Hoopes Vision for anyone considering any kind of eye surgery.
