Limitations and alternatives

Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of Intermountain Eye Center , there may be some limitations. Below is a description of known limitations, and potential solutions. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed below.Known limitations for Intermountain Eye Center:
  • Accordion element on Optical Lenses section : Some of the HTML is invalid, there are some paragraph tags that close in the incorrect spot because the content management system that this site uses will automatically add paragraph tags around certain elements, and it’s doing it incorrectly on this page because of the complicated nature of it (an accordion inside another accordion). We are happy to provide this content over the phone or through email. Contact us if you cannot access this information in this section.
  • Google Map on Contact page: There is a pop-up on this map when you click on a location marker that gives no warning it’s a pop-up, which can be disorienting for some users. However, this is standard Google map functionality. At this time, we are going to continue using this map feature from Google. Contact us if you need help viewing our locations with the form on that page.
  • What’s New blog page: The same link text and URL are used in two locations, which may be confusing for some users. We are listing a category link on the article as well as a list of categories in the sidebar, which sometimes means the same link is used twice on the page. Both links lead to the same destination but serve independent purposes. Contact us through our contact page if you need help.

“ I was referred to Dr. Harf by friends who were very pleased with both his professional skill, the clear helpful information he provided, and his personal caring interaction with his patients. In addition, the entire staff was both pleasant and knowledgable about their work. Of special mention was Joyce, the contact lens specialist. I have worn contact lenses since I was 19 years old, well over 50 years now, she was one of the very best encountered in regard to her competence, attention to detail, and excellent results. ”
