Dr. Michael D. Conklin began his career in optics and eye care over 25 years ago in New York State. Beginning as a highly skilled optician and optical lab manager, Dr. Conklin pursued a degree in biology from the University if Utah, and later received his Doctorate of Optometry, with honors, from The University of California Berkeley School of Optometry. He completed his residency training at the University of Alabama, Birmingham.His love of the mountains and Utah’s winter powder eventually brought him back to settle in the Salt Lake valley, but not before he spent time honing his optometric skill in New Jersey, California, Tennessee, Colorado, New Mexico and Hawaii. When he’s not practicing optometry, you will likely find him on the slopes of Utah’s ski resorts or cheering on his favorite sports team.Dr. Conklin has been involved in many leading studies and research projects covering a wide variety of subjects in eye care. He has developed a strong sense of patient care, and always takes the time to educate his patients and ensures their questions are answered.
