Professional athletes continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible, but it’s easy to see how impaired vision can keep an athlete from reaching peak performance. For years, contact lenses have served as the less than ideal solution. Today, any athlete hampered by glasses and contacts, weighing the pros and cons of #LASIKsurgery, has a growing list of other athletes who would tell them, in the words of Taan Robrahn, “Getting LASIK to improve my state of life, and my performance, is something I wish I would have done years ago.” #LASIKSurgeon

#LASIKeyesurgery is famous for the many benefits it affords. Notably, the surgery usually takes less than 10 minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis. Patients can expect to remain at a laser center for about two hours on the day of the procedure. #LASIK #DidYouKnow

You may have heard of an eye condition known as age-related #maculardegeneration (ARMD or AMD). While macular degeneration does not cause total blindness, the loss of central vision can make everyday activities, such as recognizing faces and reading, difficult or even impossible. Read more...

#DidYouKnow Cataracts are far and away the most common treatable cause of poor vision. To better understand what a cataract is, it is helpful to know something about the eye and how it works. #CataractSurgery

Refractive problems are associated with the shape of the cornea and how it focuses light to the retina, located in the back of your eye. Refractive treatments— #LASIK  and   #PRK—correct your vision by reshaping the cornea to correct the way it focuses light on to the retina.

All-laser #IntraLASIK is a safer, more accurate way to perform the first step of #LASIKsurgery. Ideal for those with a high prescription or thin corneas, IntraLASIK is the latest technique designed to extend #LASIK eye surgery to the patients who had once been considered ineligible.

#Cataractsurgery has improved and advanced dramatically during the last several decades. With today's modern surgical techniques and scientific advances in technology, cataract surgery has become practically painless.

A new article, polling experts and citing several long-term studies, finds that #LASIK is safe and effective in the long term. Not only is LASIK safe, the article reports, but it is continually getting safer and more effective as new technologies are introduced.

Modern, wavefront-optimized or wavefront-guided LASIK using such advanced lasers as the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q helps to reduce side effects of LASIK.

Story
Tagline
LASIK Surgeon at Hoopes Vision in Draper, Utah
Introduction
Phillip C. Hoopes, MD, MBA is one of the most recognizable names in corrective vision surgery and is Utah's most experienced LASIK and IntraLASIK surgeon. He was one of the first and most experienced laser eye surgeons in the country. Dr. Hoopes is a Utah native and graduate of Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He completed his eye surgery training at the prestigious University of Iowa Eye Center, voted as one of the top three residencies in the country. After his residency, Dr. Hoopes did additional fellowship training in cataract, implant, and laser surgery in Savannah, Georgia. More recently, in June 2007, Dr. Hoopes received an executive MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. 

Dr. Hoopes has been performing refractive surgery since 1983 and was the second Midwest surgeon to perform radial keratotomy. His Kansas City practice was one of the few centers in the country to be involved with the FDA clinical trials and testing that led to the approval of many of the laser systems used today for LASIK surgery. The first official laser procedure after FDA approval was actually performed at his center. Dr. Hoopes also performed the first Summit Technology laser procedure for myopia and astigmatism after FDA approval on March 16, 1998. He was a member of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary at Harvard University, a clinical assistant professor of ophthalmology at Kansas University Medical Center, and served briefly as a clinical professor of ophthalmology at Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah.

Bragging rights
Dr. Phillip C. Hoopes was only one of three eye surgeons in the U.S. to receive the prestigious Accento Award during a national Allegretto Wave conference in September of 2005. The award, named for an Italian word that means to accentuate or emphasize, is presented each year by WaveLight, Inc., a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of refractive surgery technology, to those physicians who bring pioneering new vision care technology to the forefront. Besides recognizing Dr. Hoopes for his contributions to laser eye surgery, he was acknowledged as the country’s second highest volume Allegretto Wave surgeon.
