In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
Dr. Todd Daynes and Dr. Francis Wapner, the ophthalmologists behind Advanced Eye Care, wield experience gleaned from thousands of surgeries, exams, and medical evaluations when correcting ocular issues. The office outfits eyes in a number of stylishly sight-enhancing frames or secretly spiffs up vision with a pair of contacts. For those looking to shed their eyewear altogether, the doctors terraform corneal surfaces during traditional LASIK treatments performed with a microkeratome, often leaving patients with 20/20 vision or better and reducing their need for glasses, contacts, or large-print maps of their living rooms.
After studying at the University of Utah, Emory University, and Vanderbilt, Dr. Justin Johnsen returned to his native Utah to raise his family and begin to realize his dream of helping those suffering from ocular and facial trauma. At Utah Eye & Facial Plastic Surgery, he and his trained aesthetician administer multiple types of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for the face, ranging from four types of cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Restylane—to the removal of painful eyelid tumors.
The doctor is happy to consult with any prospective client beforehand—and for free—in order to review all options and develop a rapport that can later be applied to a comedy bit.
Stuart Anderson, OD, performs a wide slate of vision services at Precision Eye Care. From eye examinations to medical eye management and LASIK surgery, he identifies clients’ vision needs before settling on the appropriate solution. The facility uses state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and offers a wide selection of designer frames from brands such as Gucci, Versace, and Burberry.
Helmed by optometrist Dr. Lynn Stromness and ophthalmologist Dr. Paul Jeppsen, Canyon Eye Specialists sharpens the sight of patients of all ages with thorough examinations and an arsenal of stylish frames. In addition to ensuring the long-term health of eyes with routine exams, the good doctors employ sophisticated remedies for blurred vision, such as LASIK procedures that reduce the need for glasses and treatments that allow dry-eyed patients to wear contacts or cry at sad films. The fully accessible office stocks a vast array of frames from brands such as Vera Bradley, Tommy Bahama, and Guess, and the in-office lab speedily fashions prescriptions for most lenses.
Board-certified optometrist Dr. Jeffery L. Mellor has plenty of ways to improve vision. For patients looking for glasses, he pairs frames with prescription lenses made from one of five types of material, such as lightweight polycarbonate, Trivex, or tried-and-true crown glass. Patients looking for contacts can get fitted with rigid, soft, or hybrid lenses. And for those looking for a more permanent solution, Dr. Mellor can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism with LASIK procedures.
