Our first ever LASIK video contest has been a great success and a lot of fun. We had nearly 100 people enter LASIK video submissions and 650 people actually registered for the contest! There was a humorous category and a serious category, and we had many great entries in each. Once the LASIK contest videos were in, they went to a panel of celebrity judges including: Jazz Bear, Kerry, Bill and Gina of X96, Rig Rog from 97.1The Blaze, and General Gridlock from Kbull. These judges helped narrow the selection down to 6 semi-finalists in each category. From there it went to popular vote allowing you to vote for your favorites.
Thanks to your votes, both Will and Sarah will receive complimentary All-Laser custom IntraLASIK from Hoopes Vision! We had over 11,000 total votes come in over a two week voting period! Sarah had the most with 1962 votes; Will Rubio was the winner in the humorous category with 1604 votes. Will Rubio’s humorous LASIK video Denial gives us a glimpse into the life of a man who could really benefit from better vision – but doesn’t realize it. Sarah’s video shows us how it is much harder dealing with glasses and contacts while working in Africa than it is here. In addition to the two winners, Dr. Hoopes decided to award LASIK surgery at 50% off for the two runner-up videos Roger Bespectacled, and a Passion for Photography. Congratulations to all our winners, and thanks to all of you for sending in such great videos.
We received a lot of votes, and had a lot of fun with the contest. It was clear that many of you spent a great deal of time on these videos, and that LASIK surgery at Hoopes Vision could really benefit you. We hope that the $1000 off coupon each of you received for sending in your video helps make it even easier to achieve the dream of clear vision and freedom from glasses and contacts.

It was much harder for our celebrity judges to select the semi-finalists than they had anticipated. Our celebrity judges included Kerry, Bill and Gina from X-96 radio, General Gridlock from K-BULL 93 radio, Big Rog from 97.5 The Blaze, and the Jazz Bear. We had a total of over 90 LASIK videos submitted. There were many great entries, and it was obvious so many of you could really use LASIK surgery. There were a lot of great funny videos and several heart-felt submissions. Thanks to all of you for the time and effort spent creating these LASIK videos that were submitted from all over Utah. We hope that the $1000 off blade-free LASIK surgery coupon you received for submitting your video will help express our gratitude to each one of you who helped make this contest so much fun. You can view the semi-finalists in each LASIK video category by visiting www.hoopesvision.com/contest. Please vote for your favorites. (The site looks like it will let you vote as often as you want, but to keep it fair, it will only submit one vote per i.p. address per day.) Good luck to all the semi-finalists in the Hoopes Vision LASIK video contest.
