Our Facility

Hoopes Vision Our Facility

Our flagship facility in Draper was designed from the ground up to deliver a world-class experience to our patients. The laser surgery center features the most advanced collection of vision correction lasers in the state, housed in a climate-controlled laser suite designed to optimize their performance. The clinic area is spacious, comfortable, and equipped with the very latest in diagnostic equipment. Our on-site, Medicare-approved ambulatory surgery center, EyeSurg of Utah, is one of the few surgery centers in the world specifically designed for laser cataract surgery. Finally, the Hoopes Durrie Rivera Clinical Research Center, located on site, is a proving ground for dozens of exciting new devices, procedures, and medicines. Its presence in our facility and its status as a major center for clinical trials help ensure that our surgeons always have a glimpse into the future of vision correction technology.












There's More To See!

















Our LASIK Surgery Center

With over 60,000 LASIK and PRK procedures performed, our team of laser vision correction surgeons is the most experienced in Utah. Moreover, our ongoing commitment to offering the newest technology means that not only are our LASIK surgeons the most experienced in the state overall, they are by far the most experienced in the state at such important advanced procedures as blade-free and wavefront-optimized LASIK.

Hoopes Vision Our Procedures

Since 2000, Hoopes Vision has specialized in surgical vision correction procedures such as LASIK, cataract surgery, and ICL. Our ongoing commitment is to provide patients with the newest, safest, and most effective technology, in the hands of skilled, experienced surgeons. We have been pioneers and early adopters of every major advance in vision correction technology since we opened our doors.


Hoopes Vision Blade-Free LASIK

In 2003, Hoopes Vision became the first LASIK practice in Salt Lake City to use the new, safer blade-free femtosecond laser for flap creation. Over a decade later, the laser suite at our Draper facility features two of the most advanced femtosecond laser systems in the world.

Hoopes Vision Wavefront-Optimized

Hoopes Vision was the first practice in the state to embrace the improved results of wavefront-optimized LASIK, bringing this revolutionary technology to Utah nearly five years before any other practice. Today, Hoopes Vision owns two wavefront-optimized laser systems, housed in a state-of-the-art laser suite designed to optimize their performance.

Hoopes Vision Affordability

Our main goal is to provide our patients the safest, most effective vision correction available. However, the fact that we own our facility and our lasers creates a cost savings which is passed on to our patients, who are often surprised to find out just how affordable our services can be.

Our Facility FAQ

Patients who come to Hoopes Vision from Utah and around the country in search of refractive and laser eye surgeons and their cutting-edge vision correction procedures are pleasantly surprised by the beautiful architecture and works of art adorning the walls, the complimentary fresh baked cookies, the leather massage chairs, and all the other little touches designed to make them feel at ease.

Why is it important that your laser surgery suite is climate controlled?

The lasers used in LASIK, excimer lasers and femtosecond lasers, perform best in a relatively narrow range of temperature and humidity. For this reason, our laser surgery room features a state-of-the-art climate control system, ensuring consistently excellent results to our LASIK and PRK patients. Similar lasers to ours, housed in a less advanced laser room, would not yield the same results.

How long have you been in your current facility?

Our main facility in Draper, Utah opened at the beginning of 2013. Prior to that, we had been in a facility in Sandy, Utah since 2000.

Do you have a location in downtown Salt Lake City?

Yes, we do! We have a clinic at 109 E. South Temple, directly under the historic Eagle Gate. This Eagle Gate clinic is a smaller one, dedicated to preoperative and postoperative checkups for our LASIK, cataract, and other patients who find the downtown location more convenient. All surgical procedures still take place at our main facility in Draper.

How large is your Draper facility?

The building is 58,000 square feet, of which we occupy the entire first and second floors. There are over thirty examination and testing rooms. EyeSurg of Utah features four operating rooms and a dedicated laser room for laser-assisted cataract procedures.

What’s this I hear about cookies?

We bake fresh batches of cookies throughout the day and serve them up warm to our patients and their families. Those, and the complimentary bottles of cold water, are just a few of the little touches that make LASIK, PRK, ICL, or cataract surgery at Hoopes Vision a vision correction experience like no other.

Patient Spotlight Lauren Webber

Where other places might shuffle you through your LASIK treatment like an assembly line, Hoopes Vision goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best experience possible. From the consultation visit where your optometrist will help you decide what procedure would be best for your eyes, to the procedure itself where you recover in a massage chair with warm cookies. After going home and a two hour nap later, I woke up with 20/15 vision! It’s been 3 days since my surgery and I have to remind myself to put my eyedrops in because I have zero irritation. I wouldn’t recommend anyone but Hoopes Vision!
