Cataract Surgery
in Salt Lake City, Utah

Cataracts are a common eye condition that can cause blurry eyesight and even vision loss if left untreated. Once cataracts develop, cataract surgery is the only solution that will last — and our team can help you see clearly again with the expertise, advanced technology, and IOL options to bring you cataract-free clarity.

What are Cataracts?

Cataracts are a dense, cloudy area on your eye’s normally clear lens, a part of your eye necessary for focusing vision. They gradually form throughout the natural aging process, putting those over the age of 40 at greater risk of developing cataracts, and those over 60 at very high risk. Cataracts can lead to blurry, hazy, or yellow eyesight; decreased night vision; increased light sensitivity; and halos around lights.

Are You Experiencing:

Objects Appearing Yellow, Hazy, Blurred or Distorted?
Dramatically reduced night/low light vision?
Halos around bright lights at night?
Difficulty seeing in bright light or sunshine due to glare?
If so, you may have cataracts. Don’t wait to take control of your vision: schedule an appointment with our talented doctors today!

Why Choose Standard Optical for Cataract Surgery?

Throughout the decades, our team has continuously adopted and become experts in industry-leading treatments and technology — and cataract surgery is an area where our innovation shines.

Our doctors are extensively trained in a state-of-the-art cataract surgery known as phacoemulsification. This allows us to remove the cataract and replace it with an artificial, vision-restoring IOL more efficiently than other cataract surgeries so you can recover and enjoy your vision faster.

IOLs don’t just replace cataracts: they can enhance your vision by correcting astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. Ask about premium IOLs such as the Alcon AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Multifocal!

There is a new manager, Erika. The prior manager (Jessica) and front desk person (Jovana) who made serious mistakes with a redo of my lens order are gone. This is a review of a short interaction with Erika and three times with the lab. So based on prior experiences with two people (the old manager and front desk person) this was going to be a 2 or 3 star review because they had messed up a redo of my lens order but now I have to revise what I was going to talk about. If you get frames/lenses at any of the stores they will be sent to this location which is where the lab is that puts them together. You can also come in person and pay an extra fee to wait while the lab completes your order then. My review of the lab is 5 stars! I just needed new lenses for my existing frames which are 25 years old. You have to sign a form absolving them of responsibility if the frames are damaged when they put in the lenses. I’ve never had a problem in the past with other labs and my old frames. Turns out due to mistakes with my initial order, the redo order, and the prescription redo order, I had to go to this store/lab three times. But each time they did a great job and my frames were fine! And I only had to pay the extra fee once. The turnaround time while I waited was about an hour or less.
