IDAHO FALLS (ID) – Idaho Eye and Laser Center is pleased to announce plans to move their Idaho Falls Clinic and Ambulatory Surgery Center to Snake River Landing.  Earlier this year, the company purchased a 3.2 acre lot along Snake River Parkway, with plans to begin construction on a new 25,000 square foot state-of-the-art ophthalmic medical facility next Spring depending on completion of the design phase which is currently underway.

The Idaho Eye and Laser Center has offered specialized medical eye care services to Southeast Idaho since 1984. The Idaho Eye and Laser Center is dedicated to offering the most progressive ophthalmic treatment and surgical procedures available for your eye care needs.  

Craig Bates, Idaho Eye and Laser Center Director states: “We are proud to be the newest entity within the Snake River Landing Complex and are excited for the new facility and architecture that we will be putting in place to serve our current and new patrons/patients for many years to come. We have experienced incredible growth and have outgrown our current facility on 17th Street and find it necessary to upgrade. The people at Ball Ventures are amazing people, very non pressure and always striving to meet our needs. We are proud to be positioned right next to them on Snake River Parkway and look forward to our new relationship with Ball Ventures and are excited to be part of this amazing complex known as Snake River Landing. We are very proud of our referral network and value our relationship with the region’s physicians including over 100 Optometric Physicians with whom we work hand-in-hand with for the pre and post-operative care of their patients.”

The new two-story facility will feature full clinical and surgical suites and will also house the centralized administrative functions for all Idaho Eye and Laser Center facilities.  The new facility will have additional space planned into the building to allow for new technologies and capabilities as they become available.  In this light, a new technologically advanced LASIK Suite will be incorporated as the Idaho Eye and Laser Center is currently the only “on-site fixed laser” center in the region servicing Eastern Idaho, Central Idaho, Southern Idaho, Southern Montana, Western Wyoming and Northern Utah. 

“We are excited to welcome Idaho Eye and Laser Center to Snake River Landing,” said Eric Isom, Chief Development Officer of Ball Ventures. “They are a well-established business with a proven track record of success in the community. I have no doubt that the new Idaho Eye and Laser Center facility will allow that success to grow and add to the opportunities available at Snake River Landing.”

Snake River Landing is home to more than 40 businesses ranging between restaurant, office, and retail use with a day-time population of over 1,000 employees. The Idaho Eye Center will be the first of its kind within the mixed-use development, further adding to the diversity and population of Snake River Landing. Currently the Idaho Eye and Laser Center employs 82 employees and expects to break 100 once the new facility is open.
