Patient Comments (8)
in Kaysville, UT |
After going to three other ophthalmologists over the past seven years trying to get help for my chronic eye condition, I finally found a doctor who was interested in spending time with me to listen and respond. I am so appreciative to received some help that has brought major improvement to my eye condition (dry eye). Dr. Richards' attention, care, treatment and follow up has been exceptional. A patient for life!

Dr. Richards was wonderful! I was nervous about lasick but had a great experience under his care. Very professional and attentive! Thrilled with his work!

“Dr. Richards was hands-down the best choice we could have made for my mom's surgery. Throughout the process he was there to answer questions. Her recovery was quick, painless, and easy, and I believe that that was in large part due to the mindful care of Dr. Richards. After seeing the care given to my mom, I chose Dr. Richards to be a part of my health care team.

Dr. Richards performed the most comprehensive eye examination I have ever had. I know that cataract surgery is his specialty, but I felt that he addressed my concerns about glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy with care and expertise. I would recommend him highly!
in Layton, UT |
Excellent service with a sincere interest in patient satisfaction. All questions were answered in plain English and left no apprehensions regarding the procedure. The procedure itself was completed as planned with immediate results. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would rate the overall experience as an 11 and would certainly recommend Dr. Richards to anyone needing eye surgery. I now have perfect eye sight in both eyes and am amazed at the difference between before and after.

He takes time to make sure you understand everything he is telling you and everything he will do. He is friendly and professional He did my cataract surgery and he really put me at ease. I am amazed at how clear my vision is now. I can even go without glasses

I'm new to Utah, having moved from Hawai'i. I was used to a very good eye surgeon at home and wanted to find one doctor here. My new primary care doctor recommended Dr. Trent Richards. It was easy to get an appointment, his assistant, Brittany, was gracious and thorough as was Dr. Richards. He corrected a problem with my right eye, on the spot, with a simple laser procedure (simple to me..I know he's had years of practice). Within hours, I was seeing nearly 20/20 out of that eye. Nice guy.
