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.
With experienced podiatric doctors at the helm, Foot and Ankle Specialists of Utah's purview covers a wide range of foot complaints. The physicians completed their residencies in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, laying a firm foundation beneath their independent areas of expertise and their giant-foot-shaped homes. Dr. Ryan Anderson uses his sports medicine and chronic foot-pain expertise to treat plantar fasciitis, sprains, and shin splints while Dr. Bryan Seagle specializes in the foot conditions that commonly arise in diabetic patients, treating foot ulcers and Charcot foot with custom-molded orthotics. Dr. Jason Campbell and Dr. Colby Frost, meanwhile, specialize in pediatric treatment.
Led by Dr. Brian R. Davis, who has performed over 27,000 LASIK and PRK vision surgeries himself, Davis Vision Center's team has made LASIK its specialty. They equip their office with the latest equipment such as the Visx Star S4 laser system and the IntraLase FS laser. With these tools in hand, they perform LASIK surgery that can bring eyes up to a 20/20 vision level or better. For those who do not qualify for corrective surgeries, an on-staff optician can also conduct eyeglass examinations and fittings for frames and lenses.
At Master Kwon's World Class Tae Kwon Do, Grand Master and seventh-degree black belt Jin Yong Kwon imparts more than a quarter-century of tae kwon do wisdom in lessons for participants of all ages. Through tae kwon do training, pupils develop technical martial-arts skills while seeking to build traits such as self-control, respect, and confidence that carry over into other facets of life.
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.
