Meet Dr. West
As an optometric physician Dr. Michael West has served Sandy and south valley residents for over three decades.
Dr. West was born and raised in Ogden, Utah where he completed his undergraduate degree at Weber State University. He received his Doctor of Optometry degree at Southern California College of Optometry in Fullerton, California. His clinical training included the University Eye Center - Fullerton, Brentwood VA Medical Center, Los Angeles VA Eye Clinic, and the Phoenix Indian Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona.
Upon completion of his internship training, he began his career by establishing a private practice in Sandy, Utah while also serving on the clinical staff at The Eye Institute of Utah.
He is a diplomate of the National Board of Examiners in Optometry and has served in positions within the Utah
Optometric Association, on both the board of trustees, and also the quality assurance committee. His expertise in clinical practice includes general patient care with particular focus on dry eye treatment, cataracts, diabetes, macular degeneration, specialty contact lenses, and LASIK pre and post-operative care. As a recipient of LASIK in 2008, Dr. West now knows personally what it feels like to experience the benefits of this amazing technology. This surgery has provided him great vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses. "Laser vision correction has truly improved my quality of life, without the daily reliance and caring for glasses and contact lenses. Having personally experienced LASIK, I feel that I have a unique perspective as an eye doctor in helping others consider the true benefits, along with carefully evaluating what options are best for each individual patient contemplating this significant change in their life."In order to better serve the needs of his patients, his established practice in Union Square recently relocated across the street to a larger, more convenient facility under the new name: Eye Care Solutions.
