St. George, UT — The Zion Eye Institute was recently named as one of the top 50 eye surgery centers to know in the country.

Becker’s ASC Review released the “50 Ophthalmology-Driven ASCs to Know” list for 2013. The list is comprised of ophthalmology-driven ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) that include advanced procedures and perform a high volume of eye surgery cases annually.

The Zion Eye Institute is the largest and most comprehensive eye surgery center in southern Utah. They have 8 eye surgeons that cover every specialty in eye surgery, including LASIK, cataract surgery, glaucoma surgery, cornea surgery, cosmetic eyelid/reconstructive surgery, retina surgery, and pediatric surgery. The surgical facility houses the most advanced equipment and state-of-the-art technology available, including the only on-site laser in southern Utah for laser vision correction surgery. Together, their team of specialists can treat even the most complex eye surgeries, and patients come from hundreds of miles for the specialized care provided by the Zion Eye Institute.

All the surgery centers on this list have been providing eye-specific care to their communities for a decade or more. They include routine and advanced procedures, and several engage in charity care and community service activities. Additionally, many centers include ophthalmologists doing cutting-edge research and have received recognition for the quality of care they provide.

This list was devised after public solicitation for recommendations by our editorial team and developed by internal research. Members of the list do not pay and cannot pay to appear on the list.

Jason Ahee, M.D., ophthalmologist, is the executive director of the Zion Eye Institute. “We are extremely proud to be on this list. It’s a great tribute to our surgeons and our staff to be recognized for the outstanding care and service that we continually strive to provide for our patients,” said Dr. Ahee.
