Diplomate American Board of Ophthalmology
W. SCOTT LOHNER, M.D. is extensively trained in ophthalmology and specializes in laser refractive and cataract surgery. He started performing LASIK shortly after its FDA approval. Having served thousands of patients with all types of eye diseases, he finds his greatest satisfaction by helping patients lose their dependence on glasses and in restoring vision that was previously lost. “We’re getting great results and with the advent of Custom treatments, things are now even better and safer than ever before!” said Dr. Lohner.
As a recipient of LASIK several years ago, Dr. Lohner knows personally what it feels like to experience the wonders of laser vision correction. “I love the opportunity now as a surgeon to help provide this same miracle to others. My experience stems from the patient’s point of view and the surgeon point of view which allows me to truly empathize with those who are contemplating making this significant change in their lives,” said Dr. Lohner.
Dr. Lohner’s practice extends throughout Utah County, South Central Utah, Delta, Fillmore, and Nephi.
Dr. Lohner graduated from the University of Utah Medical School where he subsequently completed his internship of combined internal medicine and ophthalmology.

Dr. Lohner completed his residency specializing in ophthalmology at Tulane University in New Orleans where he presented research annually and was awarded honors for his work relating to refractive surgery.
