Nate Dipalma underwent all-laser eye surgery at our Salt Lake City office.
MR. NATE DIPALMA: My name’s Nate Dipalma [phonetic]. I’m a speed skater and a 10K world record holder. Vision is important in speed skating because speed skating is about balance. If you’ve got good vision, you’ve got good balance. If you’ve got good balance, you’ve got great speed.
I chose to have LASIK with Dr. Hoopes because I really wanted someone that I could trust. My procedure was blade free. The thought of someone using a blade on my eye made me feel uncomfortable. What I liked about Hoopes is that they don’t use blades. It’s IntraLASIK technology. They have several different lasers. They have state of the art lasers that no one else has.
