Eye Care Services

Our expert eye doctor, Dr. Shaun Larsen, is pleased to serve you with all the vision and eye care services you need for sharp sight. At Magna Family Eyecare, we are dedicated to providing patients with friendly, first-rate care, and we welcome all ages to visit – from babies to seniors. Contact us to reserve your eye exam and vision testing, or stop by anytime with your current vision prescription to buy contact lenses and eyeglasses from our designer optical.

Customized Eye Exams – Advanced Technology

To keep your vision clear and comfortable, Dr. Larsen will inspect the health of your eyes by performing thorough eye exams. Children, adults, and seniors do not share the same health issues, risk factors, and visual requirements. That is why we personalize every eye exam to consider your unique needs.

Since medicine and technology advance at such a rapid pace, we also make sure to stay on top of the latest technologies and diagnostic tools, such as OCT Scans, digital retinal imaging, and corneal mapping in our Salt Lake City optometry practice. If you have Low Vision, Dr. Larsen will administer a specialized eye exam to recommend the most suitable low vision aids and rehabilitation therapy.

Treatment for Eye Conditions & Diseases

If you have an ocular disease, such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and cataracts, we will monitor your condition regularly for changes in order to design the best treatment plan to prevent vision loss. Our Salt Lake City eye doctor aims to help you enjoy healthy vision for as long as possible.

In addition to managing eye disease, we also diagnose conditions such as dry eye, computer vision, and eye allergies. If you suffer from the painful symptoms of dry eye, we will assess your condition to find the cause – and treat it to bring you lasting relief.

Regular & Specialty Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are the vision correction eyewear of choice for many people, and we fit and stock a broad range of premium types. Yet, what if you have an eye condition that makes wearing contact lenses difficult? Nowadays, that is not a reason to give up! Due to modern engineering and high-tech materials, contact lenses are available in a wide diversity of types to fit even the most complex, hard-to-fit condition, such as scleral lenses for keratoconus. Our Magna Family Eyecare optometrist is highly qualified and knowledgeable about specialty contacts, and he provides detailed contact lens eye exams and fittings for all patients.

Ortho-k lenses offer a fantastic alternative to wearing eyeglasses and daytime contacts. Also, they are an effective method of myopia control for people with progressive nearsightedness. Book a consultation in our Salt Lake City office to find out if you or your child is a good candidate for orthokeratology.

  • Learn more about what problems can be spotted with an eye exam, what’s involved in a comprehensive exam, and special considerations for kids and contacts.
  • According to experts, 80% of learning is visual, which means that if your child is having difficulty seeing clearly, his or her learning can be affected.  This also goes for infants who develop and learn about the world around them through their sense of sight.  To ensure that your children have the visual resources they need to grow and develop normally, their eyes and vision should be checked by an eye doctor at certain stages of their development.
  • We diagnose and manage ocular diseases such as Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy and Cataracts.
  • As we reach middle age, particularly after age 40, it is common to start to experience difficulty with reading and performing other tasks that require near vision. This is because with age, the lens of our eye becomes increasingly inflexible, making it harder to focus on close objects. This condition is called presbyopia and eventually it happens to some extent, to everyone as they age.
  • Dry eye syndrome (DES) is a chronic condition that develops when your eyes do not produce and maintain enough tears to keep the eye’s surface lubricated.
  • Did you know your optometrist can help you with red eyes, pink eye, or sore eyes, foreign body removal and eye emergencies?
  • We use the most up-to-date technology to ensure the best eye care possible. Learn about the different types of tests and equipment you may experience on a visit to our Practice.
  • If you're ready for an alternative to glasses and/or contacts look to us for co-management of LASIK, cataract, and other ocular surgery.
  • Our optometrist provides advanced myopia control using ortho k and other methods. Myopia Control is important as it reduces the risk of eye disease when your child ages, much like eating  a healthy diet prevents diabetes.
  • Try Latisse™  for longer, thicker lashes.
  • Astigmatism is a very common eye condition that's easily corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses and on some occasions, surgery.
  • Low vision is the term used to describe reduced eyesight that cannot be fully corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses or eye surgery.
  • Vision plays a crucial role throughout childhood and beyond. Many parents don't understand how vision helps their children develop appropriately.
