Seeing 2020

At first, Eagle Vision One seemed too good to be true, such that it might be the setting for a modern Pleasantville film. Their offices are beautiful and could pass a white glove inspection any day of the week. The staff seem empowered and confident. Patients were even smiling after doing the new gentle eye pressure test that replaced that dreaded eye-puffer thing!

I sat down with Dr. Adam Warner and Dr. Shawn Sorenson, co-owners of Eagle Vision One, to learn more about how they’ve built such an impressive practice.

After handily winning “Best Optometrist” in the 2019 Best of Treasure Valley and then winning “Best Eye Care” in this year’s Idaho’s Best, Eagle Vision One has firmly planted their flag atop the eye doctor hill.

Everywhere you look, Dr. Warner and Dr. Sorenson have done more than was necessary. Continuing education, more staff, better training, extended hours, and advanced treatment — they go as far as they reasonably can to provide the best service for their patients.

I work with many small business professionals across the country — doctors, dentists, and lawyers that own their practices. Few have achieved such near-perfect execution as Eagle Vision One. And while they’re not necessarily perfect, they seem to have few (if any) weak areas. Plus, you’ll never see them cut corners. They believe their patients deserve and should receive the best available treatment.

When I asked the doctors what was most important to them, Dr. Sorenson said seeing his patients every year. Even if your eyes seem fine and your prescription hasn’t changed, there is still a lot of value in a checkup. Most insurance plans cover annual exams, and that’s because early detection of glaucoma and macular degeneration is incredibly important.

There are even other health conditions that may be revealed with an eye exam, making them even more important as we age. Conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia can be evaluated and detected by visible changes in the appearance of the retinal blood supply and blood vessels.

Some eye conditions may not be a serious threat to your health, but can be incredibly annoying. Eagle Vision One has a dedicated dry eye center in their clinics, which provide testing, imaging, and treatment for a widespread problem that is often ignored.

Eagle Vision One is proof that the who is as important as the what in eye care. You don’t have to deal with years of poor vision, glasses that don’t fit, poor service, or high pressure sales. Do your research and you’ll clearly see the right choice is Eagle Vision One.
