Heather McPhie and Landon Gardner Compete at World Cup Ski Event Without Glasses or Contact Lenses

We proudly watched a couple of our LASIK patients compete right here in Utah at the World Cup Ski event this year at Deer Valley Resort. The event was held January 29th and 31st. Landon Gardner and Heather McPhie of the U.S. Ski Team were competing at this event. Both Heather and Landon had IntraLASIK vision correction surgery at Hoopes Vision last year and now have vision better than 20/20. Both qualified for the finals on what was described as an icy, difficult course and skied great the next day as well finishing in the top ten. After her run on the 29th, Heather mentioned that one of her teammates had lost a contact that morning and had to race back to her apartment to get a replacement lens before the competition started. “I can’t tell you how great it is to no long have to deal with my old contact lenses and to just be able to focus on the event,” Heather said. Congratulations to both Landon and Heather on a great season so far!
