Hoopes Vision is proud to offer our patients LATISSE®, the 1st and only FDA-approved treatment that grows lashes longer, fuller, and darker.
LATISSE® is a prescribed solution you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes once each night. Results come in gradually, starting in as little as 4 weeks and achieving full growth in 16 weeks.
LATISSE® was created by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader with 60 years of eye care expertise. In 2001, Allergan developed a medicated eye drop to treat elevated intraocular pressure. Many patients using this medication also began to grow longer, fuller and darker lashes as a side effect. This led Allergan to study the medication’s active ingredient, bimatoprost, specifically for growing lashes. LATISSE® was approved by the FDA in December of 2008 after undergoing a clinical trial.
The doctors at Hoopes Vision have prescribed LATISSE® to numerous patients, and have been very pleased with the results.
Call us at (801)568-0200 for more information or to schedule an exam with Dr. Yardley to receive a prescription of your own!

Salt Lake City hosted the American Optometric Association’s (AOA) annual meeting at the Salt Palace Convention Center this past weekend. The AOA represents approximately 36,000 doctors of optometry, optometry students and paraoptometric assistants and technicians. Optometric professionals from all across the nation gathered to discuss important issues and attend workshops and seminars. Hoopes Vision was present at this year’s meeting, providing information to optometrists on offering their patients the best in LASIK and cataract surgery through our co-management process. The meeting also provided many opportunities for continued education, allowing our optometrists to remain at the top of the eye care industry. Hoopes Vision is proud to support the optometric community and excited to have this important event in our own beautiful state!

We were saddened to learn of the passing of our good friend and LASIK patient, Margo Dydek, last week. At the young age of 37, Margo died following complications from a heart attack. Margo was reportedly the tallest female professional basketball player at 7’2”.
Margo played for the WNBA for 10 full seasons and held the record for most blocks in a WNBA career (877 in 323 games). She was the No. 1 pick in the 1998 draft by the Utah Starzz, and played with the team until 2002. She also played for San Antonio, Connecticut and Los Angeles. Margo was beginning her coaching career in Brisbane, Australia with the Northside Wizards.
Our condolences go out to Margo’s husband David, her two sons, David and Alex, and the rest of her family.
