Mission Statement
 Classic Optical is dedicated to welcoming each patient to our practice and treating them like a part of our family! Here at Classic Optical your health and well-being is our number one focus. Our aim is to create a personal eye care experience for every patient; we accomplish this through the perfect mix of Modern Eye Care and Classic Eyewear.
Dr. Michael Conklin – graduated from UC Berkeley School of Optometry with honors in May of 2002 and is an alumni of University of Utah. He completed residency training in Ocular Disease including glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. Dr. Conklin has been involved in the optical industry for over twenty-eight years including all aspects of optometric practice. He has developed a highly in-depth level of patient care and always takes the time to educate his patients and make sure their questions are answered. When he’s not practicing optometry, you can often find Dr. Conklin on the slopes of Utah’s ski resorts or cheering on his favorite sports team. Go Utes! See Dr. Conklin on KSL: the importance of eye exams for kids going back to school.
Lindsay Lafeen, ABOC – has been working in Optical since 1998. She was here in the beginning with Dr. Wirts as the office manager, dispensing optician and contact lens specialist. She knows her way around the office and is as comfortable fitting new glasses and contacts as she is handling complex insurance and billing questions. Lindsay received her ABO optician certification in 2006 and graduated from the University of Utah in Health Economics. When not solving all manner of optical and insurance challenges, she enjoys getting out into Utah’s mountains in summer and winter skiing, hiking, tennis, and golf.
Cici Montoya – She’s back! She was previously employed at Classic Optical when Dr. Wirts was still with us, and now she has returned. During her break from the Optical Industry she attended the University of Utah and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Leisure Service Management. During this time she also started a family of her own.
Cici is happy to have rejoined the Classic Optical team she enjoys working with our patients and discussing their eye care options for glasses and contact lenses.
While away from the office she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, hiking, camping, and watching football (Go Utes!)
