Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Howells says...

Dr. Dan HowellsIn ninth grade, Dr. Howells saw his eye doctor for an eye exam. While there he interviewed his optometrist to fulfill a requirement for a Boy Scout's merit badge. After that interview Dr. Howells told his father that he would like to become an optometrist. In 2006 Dr. Howells' dream came true. Dr. Daniel C. Howells is a Pacific University College of Optometry graduate in the year 2006. He started is Bachelor's degree at the University of Utah and finished a Bachelor's degree in Visual Science from Pacific University in Oregon. He has an interest in pediatric vision care and loves to see little patients in the office. Dr. Howells has a background working in an ophthalmology office with patients with diabetes, cataracts, macular degeneration, and surgical pre/post-operative care. Dr. Howells and his wife have six children, five boys and a little girl. In their spare time, Dr. Howells and his wife love to take their kids rock climbing, biking, kayaking, or anything outdoors. Dr. Howells' wife was originally from New York and the 7 years spent there had been wonderful. In the seven years in New York, the Howells family made many lifelong friends and misses them terribly. However, in the summer of 2013 an opportunity to return to Utah presented its self. Cornerstone Vision Center in the Riverton / Herriman Utah area was opened that fall. Dr. Howells had been looking at Herriman since 1996 when his sister Michelle moved to the small country village. Now the thriving city has emerged and the growth has been unprecedented. Dr. Howells and his family are coming home. The mountains, the people, the friends, and the family are a welcome site.
