Moms & Dads
A Special Message From Dr. Phillip Hoopes
Celebrating Mother’s and Father’s day might be a bit different this year as we work to get through this challenging time. Parents have had to make many changes in order to adapt to today’s environment. Balancing work, on-line school, and making sure there are enough activities to keep the kiddos busy (and you sane), we can all agree, life has definitely thrown us a curveball.
During this unique time in our lives, Hoopes Vision is celebrating and honoring mothers and fathers of every kind, everywhere. From now until July 31, 2020, we’re offering an exclusive “Mom & Dad” special on LASIK or PRK procedures so you can free yourself from the hassle of glasses and contacts.
Stay safe, healthy, and happy.

Financing Option and HSA/FSA info
Hoopes Vision is one of the most technologically advanced surgery centers in the world, specializing in the newest vision correction procedures. We have always been driven by one goal: provide the safest and most effective vision correction technology to our patient. LASIK and PRK have helped millions of people see the world more clearly, free from glasses and contact lenses.
Hoopes Vision puts the newest, safest, and most effective LASIK and PRK technology within the reach of almost any budget by offering 0% financing options through CareCredit for up to 24 months. Subject to approval.
Don’t forget you can use your tax-free Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for your vision correction surgery! The limits for pre-tax contributions to both accounts rose slightly. An individual can set aside up to $2,700 in a healthcare Flexible Spending Account (also known as a Flexible Spending Arrangement). Some employers also contribute to employee FSA accounts, which can bring the total allowable account balance up to $3,700.Another pre-tax health funding option is known as a Health Savings Account (HSA). Individuals can set aside up to $3,500 and families up to $7,000 in an HSA. Because FSAs or HSAs can be used to cover some or all of the cost for vision correction surgery, they are a popular financing option and a smart long-term investment. Please check with your HR or Benefits Manager to learn more about what options are available to you.

DID YOU KNOW
Blade-Free LASIK at Hoopes Vision Fact:
Our surgeons have performed over 80,000 blade-free LASIK procedures, more than any other practice in Utah. We have continued to upgrade our laser keratomes; the two currently in use at Hoopes Vision, the iFS IntraLase (5th generation) and the Wavelight FS200, are nearly ten times as fast, and far more precise, than the original IntraLase.
The iFS IntraLase™ laser is the most recent upgraded version. It can now create the flap in just 16 seconds. The most significant advantage of this laser is safety. It eliminates major complications that can occur with a bladed microkeratome, such as button-hole and incomplete flaps. Eyes heal quicker and stronger, and patients experience less dryness. Studies comparing this laser to the blade have demonstrated better visual acuities with IntraLase™.
BEFORE YOU GET LASIK
Frequent Asked Questions
Patients who make the best candidates for LASIK include those who are in good health, are at least 18 years of age, and have healthy eyes with no diseases of the cornea or retina. It is also necessary to have a prescription that has been stable for at least one year.
As with any surgery, there are risks and complications associated with the LASIK procedure. Patients uncomfortable with the possible risks and complications, and those with unrealistic expectations about how LASIK can improve their vision, should consider other treatments that have comparable results. Our qualified surgeons at Hoopes Vision will be able to assess whether you are a candidate for LASIK or another refractive surgery. If you live in Salt Lake City or anywhere else in Utah and beyond, contact Hoopes Vision for a free evaluation.
The procedure itself is not painful since medication is administered to make you feel comfortable. Postoperatively, most patients experience little or no discomfort. After the procedure, your eyes may feel scratchy, gritty, or watery. These are temporary symptoms and not a problem for most patients.
Because of the advanced technology associated with laser vision correction, both eyes are most often treated at the same time. It is possible that the second eye may be done anywhere from one day to a few days to months after the first eye. This can be discussed with your eye doctor.
Visual recovery varies from one day to one week. The majority of patients resume normal activities one to two days following surgery but it may take one to two months for your vision to fully stabilize.
Because contact lenses can alter the shape of your cornea, you will need to remove your contacts prior to your pre-operative exam. If you wear soft lenses, they should be removed a minimum of five days before your exam. If you wear rigid/gas permeable lenses, remove them at least three weeks prior to your exam. By removing the lenses, the cornea will be restored to a more natural shape before measurements are taken.
