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.
Insight Eye Care gives the gift of clear vision to eyeballs and their respective owners with a wide range of frames and services. With 29 years of experience assessing ocular orbs, optometrist Dr. Douglas Satterfield administers vision exams ($69.95) for eyeglasses, asking those with clinical Monet-vision to read from the vision chart or spot a pyramid scheme from a mile away.
If the Hoopes Vision surgeons' experiences were a visual metaphor, it would be a landfill-sized pile of discarded glasses that represents the 42,000 LASIK procedures and 70,000 vision-corrective surgeries they?ve performed at Hoopes Vision. The team has also been named among the 10 most dependable LASIK surgeons by Goldline Research three years in a row, and they?re also the official eye-care and LASIK provider for the Utah Jazz, Real Salt Lake, Salt Lake Bees, and Miller Motorsports Park. By employing the use of technologically superior devices such as the Carl Zeiss Mel 80 and the ultra fast WaveLight EX-500, they perform LASIK treatments, cataract eye surgeries, and the installation of implantable contact lenses. They?ve treated a roster of high-profile clients that includes a broadcast journalist, attorney general, New York Times bestselling author, and pro athletes in the fields of soccer, golf, and underwater boxing.

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We reviewed over 300 resumes just to hire two opticians. That's how obsessed we are with customer service.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
"Four other doctors said they couldn't help me see better. This is the best I've seen in years."
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.
If you're willing to let someone operate on your eyes with a laser, what's the one thing they better have? Steady hands are important, sure, but how about experience? All told, The LASIK Vision Institute's doctors have performed more than one million eye surgeries at 57 locations nationwide. Across its network, the company has independent veteran surgeons who are all LASIK experts.
Technology has played a major role in LVI?s success, as well. Each location relies on FDA-approved laser technology that results in minimal discomfort and short recovery times, in addition to helping many patients see 20/20 or better.
