Our Vision Solutions
Since opening our practice, we have examined our patients using the latest proven eye care technology, including digital diagnostics, cornea and cataract surgery, and LASIK laser vision correction for more than 20,000 patients. We also provide comprehensive eye exams and treat medical conditions affecting the eye.
As a full-service eye care provider, we strive to give our patients everything from the right glasses and contact lenses to the medical and surgical care they need for optimal eye health. Our services include:
- Comprehensive eye exams that evaluate your vision and examine for eye conditions using laser technology that captures a 200-degree view of your retina instead of dilating eye drops
- Fitting you with the right glasses and/or contact lenses for proper vision correction, with attention to your personal aesthetic and lifestyle
- Specialized tests to optimize your sports vision, including tracking, hand-eye coordination, and depth perception
- Refractive surgery including LASIK and PRK
- Implantable contact lenses to permanently correct nearsightedness in patients who do not qualify for LASIK
- Laser cataract surgery, which we were the first private surgical group to offer in the Denver area
- Corneal transplants
- Glaucoma surgery to manage the elevated eye pressure associated with this condition
- Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to minimize excess eyelid skin and droopy eyes
- Emergency eye surgery, which is necessary in cases of sudden vision loss, trauma to the eye, and chemical exposure
- Nutritional recommendations for eye health, such as increased intake of omega-3 fatty acids to reduce inflammation that can contribute to vision issues
Some of the eye health issues we diagnose and treat include:
- Dry eye syndrome, which is prevalent in Colorado’s high altitude
- Computer vision syndrome, which causes eye strain, headaches, and related symptoms from long hours staring at a screen
- Age-related macular degeneration, which can lead to vision loss if left untreated
- Cataracts, in which the clear lens of the eye becomes clouded
- Disease of the cornea, the protective dome that covers the eye
- Glaucoma, an eye disorder that damages the optic pathway
- Strabismus, a condition in which the eyes are misaligned and have difficulty coordinating vision
- Amblyopia (lazy eye), in which the muscles of one eye are weaker than those of the other
- Viral and bacterial eye infections such as conjunctivitis (pinkeye)
- Chalazion, which is a lump or growth on the eyelid
