Under the watchful eye of certified physician Layton Alldredge, South Valley Surgical center teaches patients how to take control of their lives through supervised weight-loss programs, lap-band surgery, and in-office health and exercise classes. Optifast meal replacements teach patients the importance of portion control by serving 800–1,200 calorie meals three times a day while lap-band surgery takes a more invasive yet equally successful approach to battle obesity. Dr. Alldredge also specializes in general surgery services for a range of issues, including hernia, thyroid problems, and mastectomies.

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.
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.
