I've been struggling to get glasses OR contacts to correct my "just enough to be annoying-level" of nearsightedness and astigmatism, for 10 years. My doctors are in a well-known clinic without much of an eyeglass selection, so I've filled the prescriptions at a variety of places (then had the script *revised* 2-3 times each "round"). Ultimately I always tired of the process, & gave up on correction. This last time, I used a smaller, respectable, online eyeglass supplier. That all went well, until my 3rd script adjustment. Finally occurred to me I could look *locally* to have only the lenses replaced in my frames. I dismissed one chain store automatically, due to the incredibly long wait, and my sense the staff there have little experience in the biz. I searched for LABS in hopes of truly having this done locally, and found good reviews on Clair. I am thoroughly impressed. Staff was not only friendly, but *helpful*. How totally refreshing to not be shuffled through (even with a smile). A review of my present lenses revealed the optical center of one lens was noticeably 'off', and I received a commitment to get these glasses right. So far, so good. MD's office said script was a compromise in clarity vs no-shadows, so I'm going to test these for awhile. If the improvement doesn't seem enough to keep my wearing them, I won't hesitate to return to Clair. And start from scratch, new exam and all, if need be. The vibes I get about their commitment are just THAT good. =)

I disagree with the post below. My contacts arrive in 2 days whenever I order them and I've been going there for a few years now. Dr. Bateman has taken such good care of me at Wasatch Vision Clinic. He has helped me find the right contacts for my aging eyes and helps me tweak the prescription as my eyes change. He is a caring, kind, patient eye doctor and I highly recommend him. This is a top notch vision center. I went to Costco once for a vision exam and it was rushed, impersonal and a waste of my money. This place is so much better.
A lifesaver! While traveling in Utah, I tore a contact lens and busted my glasses, both on the same day. After visiting 3 other optical places in AF, eyeglass world was the only one who could help me. I got a quick exam, picked out a pair of glasses and they fitted me with a free trial pair of contacts so I could drive home. Terrific fast service and friendly understanding folks. Saved me!
Had an oddball issue with my frames. Staff went out of their way to get the issue resolved. Was amazed at the amount of personal time the Manager was willing to spend to take care of the issue.The doctor himself is a technician. Very fast yet more accurate with my prescription then any other doctor I have been to.
This place is first class with everything Lasik. They were great to work with through the whole process. Answering any questions that I had and making me feel like I was the only patient the they had. I would greatly recommend anyone considering Lasik to come check these guys out!!
Visited Salt Lake City....found this beautiful mall called City Creek. Bought lots of stuff including a pair of Sunglasses from Bauer's. Excellent customer service, far better then those chains stores. They even gave me a lesson about Polarized lenses.
At first I was put off at the requirement that photos of your eyes are required every year (an extra $40 charge not covered by insurance) but the doctor too the time to explain the importance of the photos and offered me a discount.
What a huge selection of sunglasses this place has. I have never been in a sunglasses store like this before. The sales people were really helpful too. I definitely recommend checking this place out. I know I'll be back.
I came here in 1996 to see Dr.Thomas C.Gayer and got the best care from him.I'll always come here for eye care from now on.
Excellent Service: fast, friendly, affordable!
