W. Scott Albrecht, O.D.
Dr. Scott Albrecht grew up in Orem, Utah, but spent much of his time at the family cabin in Southern Utah. After playing football at Ricks College where he met is wife Megan, and attending Brigham Young University, Dr. Albrecht graduated from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee in May, 2000. After graduation, the Albrechts moved to Missoula, Montana where Dr. Albrecht practiced at Family Vision Care for seven years. Wanting to be back in Southern Utah, Dr. Albrecht sold his practice and started Southern Utah Vision Care adjacent to his brother Tyler, who is a pediatric dentist, who also started in 2007. Even though practicing next door to each other lends to a lot of harrassment between brothers, Scott and Tyler very much enjoy practicing next to each other. Dr. Albrecht and Megan have four children: Dallin, Tessa, Eliza, and Paige.

More from Dr. Albrecht...
"Everybody has been to doctors who spend little time, ask few questions, and then just tell the patient what needs to be done without any regard for the patient's opinions, questions, or concerns. The way I see it, YOU, the patient, are in charge. I see your eyes for 30 minutes a year, but you live with your eyes 365 days per year, and you know them well! Working together, I believe we can prescribe glasses and contacts that work for you, not just necessarily what the machine says the prescription should be at the end of the exam."
