Our eye exams are full scope and for all ages. We understand that eye exams are more than just glasses and contacts to make you see better. It is caring for the health of the entire eye. Is it getting harder to see in the distance? Noticing it's more difficult to read small print up close? Does glare off of headlights bother you while driving? Do you notice your central vision getting distorted? Do your eyes feel dry or water excessively? These, and many others, are all concerns we address during a routine eye exam. We utilize modern and advanced equipment during the exam to have the most thorough exam possible, such as Optomap imaging. According to the American Optometric Association the first eye exam should be performed at 6 months old, then right before a child begins school, and subsequently every 1-2 years afterward.

Ocular Disease Management
Dr. Seitz is extremely passionate about eye health. He is an avid believer that there is so much more to the eyes besides vision. There are countless people he has encountered for routine eye exams with asymptomatic conditions that required attention. They wouldn't have known about them if they hadn't come in for their yearly exam. We manage a very wide range of ocular diseases. Some conditions that we commonly diagnose and manage include:
Retinal tears and detachments
Common eyelid and eye infections such as pink eye
Medical Eye Emergencies
An eye doctor is your best bet for accurate diagnosis and treatment for most minor emergency eye problems. If you have sudden vision loss, scratched your eye, are experiencing sudden pain, redness, swelling, or even something stuck in your eye, we are here to help. If it is something we are unable to treat in our office, or if you need emergency surgery, we can refer you to the best professionals possible to get you taken care of.

Pre/Post Op Cataract & Lasik Co-Management
We work with several experienced eye surgeons in Utah who manage cataracts and perform the most advanced LASIK procedures. At our practice we diagnose cataracts and let you know if you are a good candidate for LASIK. We co-manage with these surgeons by taking care of your pre-op and post-op appointments.
Vision therapy is like physical therapy for the eyes to help strengthen them. Strong eye muscles are important for eye teaming, good binocular vision, depth perception, reducing symptoms of headache and eyestrain. If you have a lazy eye, an eye turn, or difficulty reading or utilizing hand eye coordination, have had a concussion or TBI, vision therapy can help you or your child. At this time at our new location we are not offering weekly therapy sessions but still do baseline evaluations and can refer to very qualified vision therapists as needed.

As Dr Seitz says "there are 4 billion causes of headaches" but some of them are definitely eye related. We have new technology to determine if your headaches or migraines are related to anything with your eyes. We now offer custom Neurolens glasses, this is a new treatment option for people who suffer from chronic headaches or eyestrain. It is an amazing technology that has been life changing for people everywhere. Dr. Seitz is also certified in Botox injections which he initially did to be able to offer another option for migraine therapy for those who suffer from chronic migraines, and also for blepharoptosis treatment.
