Davis Vision Center is recognized as a leader in LASIK, refractive and cataract surgery in Utah. Our LASIK suite is fully equipped with the latest in technology.

Meet Dr. Brian Davis, M.D.
Dr. Davis is a Salt Lake City native. He attended the University of Utah where he graduated Magna Cum Laude in Electrical Engineering in 1985. As an engineer he developed an interest in lasers and worked with the research and development of lasers for eye surgery. This was eleven years prior to Lasik surgery becoming available to the public in the US. He then attended Medical School in St. Louis, MO where he also graduated Magna Cum Laude and was nominated to the medical school honor society Alpha Omega Alpha. He served an internship at LDS hospital in Salt Lake City and Ophthalmology residency at University of California, San Diego. He was one of the first Ophthalmologists in Utah to perform laser refractive surgery in 1996. He has been the president of the Summit/Wasatch county medical societies, medical director at LASIK Vision Institute, and director of the eye injury registry of Utah. Dr. Davis has also been a medical commentator on Fox and KSL TV as well as the Salt Lake Tribune and is involved in ongoing ocular research and the prevention of blindness. He is the current director of Ophthalmology at both the Riverton Hospital and the Jordan Valley Hospital.
Dr. Brian Davis enjoys most all outdoor activities, especially bicycling and golfing. He is also an exercise enthusiast. He is the proud father of three girls and a boy, who along with his wife, are the loves of his life.
We are excited to have Dr. Davis as our surgical director because he offers unmatched abilities and phenomenal results to our patients. With his extensive Lasik experience and knowledge of lasers, there is no other surgeon like him.
