April 16th was Hoopes Vision Night at the Energy Solutions Arena during the Utah Jazz/Dallas Mavericks game. It was an exciting game for Jazz fans, with the Utah jazz winning by two points in triple overtime! Each year, Hoopes Vision Night is an opportunity for us to give a free LASIK surgery to one lucky Jazz fan. This time, three people competed in an on-court free-throw challenge. Ryan Moore was our lucky winner walking away with a certificate for complimentary blade-free custom LASIK surgery from Hoopes Vision. We at Hoopes Vision are proud to be trusted as the official eye care and LASIK provider for the Utah Jazz, and look forward to helping the staff, team, dancers and mascot and Jazz fans with their vision correction needs for years to come.

Former University of Utah defensive end, Derrick Shelby, recently selected Hoopes Vision for his LASIK surgery procedure. Derrick came to us last month for his initial evaluation to determine whether or not he would be eligible for one of our vision correction surgeries. He was tired of having his contact lenses pop out during contact on the football field, and was anxious to free himself of the problems that poor vision can cause an athlete during play. Derrick was found to be an excellent candidate for a custom IntraLASIK procedure. He returned to our office the day after his surgery seeing 20/20. We would like to thank Derrick for trusting us with this important decision and wish him the best in his potential NFL future.

Dr. Michael Bradley, MD, one of our LASIK and cataract surgeons here at Hoopes Vision, made a TV appearance March 28th on Good Morning Utah. He discussed cataracts, how they affect vision, and when one should consider cataract surgery.
Hoopes Vision’s surgeons are among the most experienced in Utah, and always use the latest cataract surgery technology, such as multifocal lens implants that are capable of providing better vision near and far, and the new LenSx cataract laser which replaces the handheld tools used in the first steps of cataract surgery with a more precise, accurate computer guided laser. If you suspect cataracts are affecting your vision, call our office at (801) 568-0200 to schedule an examination.
