LASIK Patient Testimonials


Braden Utah LASIK PatientBraden Wright

My experience was incredible. I never imagined being able to see this well again! I couldn’t be more pleased with my results! Basketball if so much more comfortable to play. Riding motorcycles is easier now that I don’t have to deal with contacts. Life is just a lot more comfortable.

I would not go anywhere else for LASIK surgery. Dr. Monroe’s reputation is the real deal. She has the experience, technology, and integrity to make sure your eyes turn out right.  I was amazed at how smooth the surgery was. The entire time, Dr. Monroe gently talks you through what’s going on. She and Dr. Beaty are so pleasant to work with. Even with all their patients, I felt like they cared about me individually. Plus I researched other places and the Cataract & LASIK Center of Utah has very competitive prices. Price & quality – can’t beat it!

The transformation has been nothing shy of miraculous! I have been a professional athlete for more than 10 years and my O.D. told me I could not wear contacts anymore because of complications. Wearing glasses and performing in all the sports that I enjoy became very challenging and encumbered my ability to provide a livelihood for my family. That is why I researched LASIK surgery like my life depended on it, because it did. After months of research it came down to one name; Dr. Monroe. I was not an easy patient with every question and concern in the book. Dr. Monroe and her staff were incredibly professional and patient. When it came time for surgery to take place, they even held my hand through ever step of the process. Six months later, I have better than perfect vision. I am seeing 20/15 in both eyes, no glares, and no side effects. I no longer need my glasses for everything from seeing the alarm clock in the morning when I wake up, to ascending the 7 highest summits on each continent. When it’s 40 degrees below and exposed skins freezes in 30 seconds at the summits of mountains like Everest, I will not have to worry about taking off my goggles and risking frost bite to clean my fogged glasses anymore. Thank you Dr. Monroe and the Cataract and LASIK Center of Utah!

I’ve never given a review on Google before. This should show how pleased I was with the service I received, and the experience in general. I would recommend to anyone.


Haley Glick

I’m so glad that I decided to do LASIK and so glad I decided to have it done at the Cataract and LASIK Center of Utah. Dr. Beaty and Dr. Monroe were very friendly, personable, and professional. I love how Dr. Monroe walked me through every part of the surgery and help me feel calm, especially when I was so nervous. I recommend LASIK to everyone!


I must say that this company is the best. I did do a lot of research on which company to chose. I went in for my free consultation and when they told me that I was eligible for LASIK, I was ecstatic! When the day came for the procedure, everyone was very kind and caring. Dr. Monroe talked to me the whole time through the procedure. She was really fast and good. I was completely relaxed during the entire procedure. I would highly recommended this company to anyone who is looking to get LASIK done. I just love waking up and not having to put contacts in. Thank you to everyone at the Cataract & LASIK Center of Utah.


TARI MCKELLvMy LASIK surgery was in February 2012 and I am extremely happy with my new vision!! The staff and doctors of the Cataract & LASIK Center of Utah were wonderful in explaining the procedure and helping me feel at ease with the process. I felt confident with their expertise and they were always quick to answer my questions. The best part of LASIK surgery is that I no longer need to worry about the hassle of wearing contacts or eye glasses. This past summer my family spent three weeks in the Pacific Northwest on vacation and normally I would have been concerned with packing enough pairs of contacts for the whole trip. This time it was completely stress free to just pick up and go without bothering where my glasses were or putting in contacts each day. I love being able to just wake up and see each morning, so thank you for making my new vision possible!


I had LASIK in August of 2012. My prescription really wasn’t incredibly bad, but just bad enough to have to wear glasses driving or playing sports. I love the outdoors; motorcycles, hiking, water sports (although I’m not great, I have a lot of fun), and snow sports. When you love these things and can’t wear contacts it’s not nearly as enjoyable with glasses with water spots, sweat spots, breaking, etc. The personal, professional service with Dr Beaty and Monroe was Class Act. Thank you for a great and affordable procedure. I came to you recommended by friends and I’ll do the same for years to come.


I had a fantastic experience with Cataract & LASIK Center of Utah. All members of their staff with whom I interacted treated me kindly and professionally. I called and interviewed three other LASIK providers and the choice seemed clear to me based on their technology, professionalism, and price. Right from the start, I appreciated the information John provided to me as well as his patience in answering my questions. During the free consultation and the preop phase of the process I became more confident in my decision to go with them. The actual procedure was WAY easier than I imagined. It went so smoothly and in the last 4 days since having the procedure done, I am amazed at the results. My prescription was very strong and now I am seeing better than I ever did in my glasses or contacts. As so many other people say after having this procedure done, I regret not getting it done sooner. I just thought the process would be more difficult and uncomfortable. It felt great to throw my contacts in the garbage and I am donating my glasses this week. Thanks to the Doctors and staff at Cataract & LASIK Center of Utah. My wife will be in to see you in the future.

JUSTIN FURR – Painless

I have worn glasses for close to 18 years and wanted to be done with them. I despised glasses even more than contacts. The LASIK process was quick and PAINLESS. I have told everyone I know about Dr. Beaty and Dr. Monroe.

ROBERT L. MILLET – Delightful

I don’t always make great decisions, but one of the smartest things I have ever done is to have LASIK surgery. Everyday life without the toil of contact lenses and having to slip my glasses on and off all through the day has been DELIGHTFUL. LASIK surgery was stunningly simple, and the results have been a real blessing. I recommend it highly.

Kim Jackson

I would highly recommend the Cataract and LASIK Center of Utah to anyone considering LASIK surgery. I had LASIK surgery over a year ago and I have been very pleased with the results. I have 20/20 vision with no degradation over the past year or any side effects. I love the freedom from contacts and glasses LASIK has provided me. I wore contacts for years without any problems but felt LASIK offered a great vision solution. The Cataract and LASIK Center of Utah is a team of licensed professionals with experienced and friendly staff. Their slogan is new technology, old fashioned care, and they delivered. I felt completely comfortable through the whole process and enjoyed the personal care as they talked me through the surgical procedure. I urge you to consider the Cataract and LASIK Center of Utah.

Neil Christiansen

I would like to thank the Cataract and LASIK Center of Utah and their team for my 20/20 vision. A special thanks to Dr. Monroe and staff for fixing my astigmatism and correcting my sight. The last 25 years I have had to wear glasses and have never liked them. My family and I enjoy the outdoors a lot: fishing, ATV’s, hiking and hunting. I always had trouble seeing game that was far away, until NOW!

Lelia Jones

I had my LASIK surgery in 2001. I was very nearsighted and had a bad astigmatism in my right eye. After my surgery, I was able to see. My vision was 20/20. It is great to wake up in the middle of the night and not stumble around. I had worm contacts lenses for 33 years before my LASIK surgery. What a blessing to go outdoors and not have to continually take out a contact and clean it because of dirt or other particles that have gotten in my eye. No more pain or crying because something in your eye is causing pain because of your contact. The staff was professional, helpful, and kind. My four children also had LASIK surgery. They all love their results. I would recommend this surgery to anyone.


I have been mono-vision for years with contacts, I only used one for distance vision, the other eye was close up. Having my vision corrected for distance has been great. No more contacts and I see like I did as a kid. I love my new vision….I would also refer everyone to Dr. Monroe for any vision issue she is top notch and my family loves her country ways and accent.
