Our out-of-town granddaughter got fireworks in her eye. I'd previously seen Dr. Smalley and found him to be wonderful. He was magnificent with our granddaughter - so patient and kind as he removed the fireworks and confidently calmed her fears (and mine!) Amazing doctor! Very impressed.

Dr. Smalley took great care of my grandmother who has Macular Degeneration and needed a new glasses prescription. She has referred many of her neighbors and they all have had great experiences with the Lehi Excel office.

I LOVE EXCEL EYE CENTER! The staff is always so friendly and willing to help and answer questions. I always feel taken care of and not just like another patient. Highly recommend the Lehi office!

Dr. Smalley saw me for an emergency appointment on a Saturday when no one was in the office. I had a loose stitch from a cornea transplant and he pulled it out and was very courteous and polite. It was very kind of him to come in just to see me, and I would recommend him to anyone.
