December 2017

The leaves have turned, and started to fall from the trees. Cool autumn air has arrived, and snow isn't far away. As our kids are settling in to their new school year, we think about gathering with family and friends for holidays at the end of the year. Often the year's end is one of the busiest times of the year for many of us as we plan gatherings, trips and vacations, and wrapping up another year at the office. With all the distraction, it's easy to forget to use our FSA money before it disappears at the end of the year! We'd like to remind you to be sure to check your HSA and Flex accounts - as well as your vision insurance plans - and stop in to see us before the end of 2017. We suggest checking your benefits now, and not waiting until the end of December, as most doctor's offices will be extremely busy the entire month. Appointments can be difficult or impossible to schedule in time to utilize your benefits if you wait!

Our optometrists are available for comprehensive eye examinations 6 days a week, and now is a perfect time to update your prescription. Flex dollars can be used in our office for much more than just eye examinations and insurance co-payments. You can also use your dollars for glasses, contact lenses and cleaning solutions, sunglasses, and yes, even ski goggles.

Again we urge you not to wait until December to use your benefits! Nothing is more frustrating than waiting till the very last minute, and not being able to get in when you need to most. We look forward to hearing from you, and helping you maximize your benefits before they disappear at the end of the year. Call, email, or stop by the office and we'll get you in right away. As always, we wouldn't be here without you, and we are very thankful you are a part of our Sugar House Vision family.



November 2017

Sugar House Vision is extremely pleased to welcome Dr Darren Terry to our Sugar House Vision family. Dr Terry had been practicing optometry in Arizona, but decided to come back home to Utah when he heard Sugar House Vision has the best patients ever. Dr Terry is currently seeing new patients of all ages, as well as meeting all of our longtime friends - who just happen to be our past patients. We are thrilled to have him in our practice.

Each of our optometrists specialize in every aspect of your optical health, including: routine annual exams, emergency medical visits (often same day), pediatrics (even as young as 6 months old), diabetic exams, LASIK, eyelid, and cataract surgery co-management, complex eyeglass prescriptions, and all contact prescriptions including toric, rigid gas permeable and keratoconus specialty lenses. Now, with Dr's Kimball, Chatwin, and Terry, we have more availability than ever to quickly and efficiently see to all of your optical health needs - 6 days a week. So what are you waiting for? Remember, it's our most precious sense - sight!
