Dr. Michael Peterson loves what he does! He loves working with people. Before becoming an optometrist he was a genetic researcher. However, he quickly discovered that when you talk to a petri dish it doesn’t talk back. He’s a people person, so optometry was an easy choice for him.
“There is no other healthcare profession that allows you to give people immediate relief from their problems. They walk in blurry and they walk out clear! What could be more satisfying?”
Excellent communication is one of his strong points. To improve his interaction with his Guests, he trained with Toastmasters International for three years to achieve an advanced communication award. You’ll find he’s easy to talk to, which makes for an enjoyable eye exam. He’ll listen to your concerns and expectations and do everything possible to find solutions to improve and enjoy your lifestyle.
He graduated cum laude from Southern California College of Optometry in 2005. Since graduating he has helped more than 17,000 patients enjoy clear and healthy vision. He practices medical optometry with an emphasis in glaucoma and dry eye syndrome and recently served as Clinical Director at a LASIK surgery center in the Northwest. He’s an active member of the Draper-Riverton Rotary Club and enjoys supporting this wonderful community. He has dreamed of establishing an optical and eye care center that does not compromise on product quality or service. He is passionate that all our Guests are treated with respect, honesty, and unprecedented service. If your visit with us is anything but amazing, please call his personal cell phone at 801-879-8721.
