    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!

    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.
