PATIENT SPOTLIGHT: Earlier this week, Brandon and Addy Aven traveled nearly 900 miles from Astoria, Oregon to Draper, Utah to have their LASIK procedures at Hoopes Vision. Sure, there are plenty of vision correction centers closer to their home, but, having done their research, the Avens felt that there was no other choice. Working in the medical field (Brandon is a CRNA and Addy an RN), the couple understands how important it is to choose a skilled surgeon when dealing with something as important as your eyes. Referring to Dr. Hoopes as “the Godfather of LASIK”, Brandon stated that he “wouldn’t have gone anywhere else in the world” for his procedure. The Avens are excited to be free from the burden of contact lenses and glasses, and look forward to seeing their 3 beautiful children more clearly.
