Four Free LASIK Procedures in Mother’s Day Contest

Four deserving mothers will receive the gift of improved sight with a LASIK laser eye procedure for free this Mother’s Day from The Eye Institute of Utah. Family and friends can nominate their mothers by submitting the required information through The Eye Institute website.

At The Eye Institute, a practice providing laser eye surgery in Salt Lake City, UT, Medical Director Dr. Robert Cionni says he is very excited about an upcoming Mother’s Day event that will give the gift of improved vision to four mothers – by way of a free LASIK procedure. “Mothers are the fabric that hold our community together. They sacrifice their own time and resources for the good of their family and friends. We are honored to give back to them as a way of saying thank you.”

Once selected, finalists will be notified by April 29, 2011. They will then be invited to The Eye Institute of Utah for an exam and screening to ensure they are good candidates for LASIK eye surgery. Following the nomination and voting periods, four deserving mothers will be chosen the week before Mother’s Day to receive the LASIK procedure free of charge. The normal price for this advanced LASIK procedure is more than $2,000 per eye.

Surgeries will be performed on May 6, 2011 at The Eye Institute of Utah located on 755 East 3900 South in Salt Lake City, Utah. For more information about The Eye Institute, visit
