Are you a Candidate?

One of the most important factors in determining the success of LASIK on YOUR EYES is to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. At Davis Vision, it has been our experience that most people who are unhappy with their outcomes shouldn't have been cleared for LASIK in the first place. Every doctor has a different set of criteria for determining candidacy and that's where patients need to be aware and selective about the doctor they pick.

Sports and Eye Injuries

At Davis Vision we understand that our patients are active in sports as we see several eye injuries each year that could be prevented.  Nationwide, more than 31,000 people a year suffer eye injuries. That number doesn't have to be that high as almost all sports-related eye injuries can be prevented. Whatever your game, whatever your age, you need to protect your eyes! Take the following steps to avoid sports eye injuries:

Dr. Davis rides the Tour of Park City

Most patients don't know that Dr. Davis is serious about cycling. You'll find him on the trainer or outside riding almost every morning. Last weekend he participated in the Tour of Park City. The Tour of Park City is one of the toughest events in Utah cycling. It starts in Park City and heads to Evanston. From there riders take the scenic mirror lake hwy (150) back to Kamas and finally finish in Park City. It's 160 difficult miles with almost 10,000 feet of climbing and lots of head wind.

Summer LASIK Giveaway

We want to say thanks to everyone who entered our summer LASIK giveaway. We received over 1,000 entries and a winner was randomly selected this morning. We will announce the name of the winner as soon as we verify that he/she is a LASIK candidate.

Free LASIK for one lucky person

At Davis Vision we love Summer! So we want to encourage everyone to get outside and enjoy life without the hassle of contacts or glasses. In fact, we're so excited about this time of year that we've teamed up with our local blogging community and we're giving one lucky person free LASIK. So... how do you enter?

Don't rub your eyes

Eye rubbing is common with many of us. Most of us rub our eyes sometimes without even recognizing that we do it.  But it can have detrimental effects on our eyes. Eye rubbing causes inflammation to occur making our eyes and lids red. It has been linked to eye diseases such as cataracts and keratoconus. It also loosens the skin around the eyes contributing to drooping eyelids as we age. It can have detrimental effects if we have had recent eye surgery. So next time you're tempted to rub think twice.

Birthday celebration

Today all Davis Vision Center staff enjoyed a birthday lunch. Two staff members had birthdays so we decided to go have some mexican food at Guadalahonkys in Draper. It was lots of fun even though it was a little scary driving in the snow storm.
