While it is very important to have the newest laser technology, any laser is only as effective as the surgeon using it.

This means that experience is just as important as technology in achieving a great surgical result. With over 80,000 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.


Top LASIK Surgeons

Our commitment to offering patients the best available technology in the hands of the most experienced surgeons has not gone unnoticed. Our center has won the coveted Best of State award on three occasions. Our surgeons were honored as being among the Most Dependable Laser Eye Surgeons of the United States by Goldline Research for three straight years, as well as being called some of the top LASIK surgeons in the country in Delta Sky and Southwest: The Magazine.

Our Procedures

Since the 1990s, laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis, or LASIK, has helped millions of people to see the world more clearly, free from glasses and contact lenses. In the years since its introduction, constant technological advances have made an already safe and effective procedure even safer, more effective, and more predictable.

Wavefront- Optimized

In 2004, Hoopes Vision acquired the Wavelight Allegretto excimer laser, bringing wavefront-optimized custom LASIK and PRK to Utah and making us the first practice in the state to embrace this revolutionary technology by nearly five years. Over a decade later, Hoopes Vision is by far the most experienced provider of wavefront-optimized LASIK and PRK in the state.

Blade-Free LASIK

Hoopes Vision acquired Salt Lake City’s first Intralase laser system in 2003, bringing the newfound safety and precision of blade-free LASIK to the area. Since then, Hoopes Vision has performed more blade-free, all-laser LASIK procedures than any other Utah practice by far. Our surgeons’ extensive experience with this advanced technology leads to improved safety and great results to our patients.


Our surgeons have been performing PRK since 1995. PRK remains an excellent alternative for those patients who may not be good candidates for LASIK due to high prescriptions or thin or irregularly shaped corneas. Today’s PRK patient at Hoopes Vision receives a wavefront-optimized custom procedure from the most experienced laser surgeons in Utah.


I had my custom LASIK procedure in 2009, and I am delighted to say that I still LOVE my vision! As an Optometrist, my vision is extremely important to me, as is the vision of my patients. The surgeons and staff at Hoopes Vision have always taken great care of my patients when they were ready for LASIK surgery. Naturally, when I was ready to undergo vision correction myself, it was a clear choice for me. My experience at Hoopes Vision was terrific and now I understand what my patients are raving about!
Thank you Dr. Hoopes!
