We really enjoyed being a part of sponsoring KUTV2’s early broadcast of Oprah’s final episode yesterday! Mary Nickles and Shauna Lake had some great things to say about Hoopes Vision…the video is pretty dark, but their words mean a lot to us!

The season may be over for the Utah Flash, but preparations for next year are just beginning. Two guards for the Flash, Andre Ingram and Ryan Thompson, began their preparations last month by having their vision corrected by Dr. Hoopes, Jr. Both players are reportedly ecstatic with their results and looking forward to having freedom from contact lenses on and off the court.
Ingram has been with the Utah Flash for 4 seasons, and was the recipient of the 2009-2010 Jason Collier Sportsmanship Award. He also participated in the 2010 NBA D-League All-Star festivities in Dallas, taking home the Three Point Shooting Competition Championship at the NBA D-League’s Dream Factory Friday Night skills competition.
Thompson played for Rider University for four seasons, averaging 17 points and five rebounds per game. He was the only player in Rider University history to be in the top ten in points, rebounds and assists. After spending the 2010 pre-season with the Utah Jazz, Thompson is now gaining valuable time on the court with the Utah Flash.
We have thoroughly enjoyed having these wonderful athletes at Hoopes Vision and wish them the best as they pursue their promising careers.
