At Lake Dillon Eye Care, our primary goal is achieving and maintaining excellent vision for all of our patients.
Our Board Certified Ophthalmologists and staff are dedicated to serving you and your family. Our mission with our website is to educate you on our Optometry services as well as LASIK and cataract surgery so you can make an informed decision on correcting your vision as quickly as possible. We wish to answer your questions quickly and easily so that we can focus on helping you obtain your vision goals.
We focus entirely on our patients. And they have some good stories to tell. Listen to our patient stories.
Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis or LASIK, is the fastest-growing and most accepted form of laser vision correction. LASIK can treat both nearsightedness and farsightedness with or without astigmatism. The benefits of LASIK are many, including fast visual recovery, little or no discomfort, lower risk of haze, glare and halos, and in many cases the resulting vision is even better than with glasses or contacts. LASIK laser vision correction has quickly emerged as one of the true medical breakthroughs of modern history.
Are you over the age of 50 and tired of reading glasses or bifocals? What if you could focus on things up close and have great distance vision, and you could have it without wearing lenses of any kind? The advanced LASIK laser vision correction and intraocular lens procedures performed our surgeons are the most advanced in all of Colorado and have provided 20/20 or better vision for tens of thousands of people from all over the USA.
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness after cataracts worldwide. It is the first leading cause of blindness among African Americans. Glaucoma affects 1 in 200 people aged 50 and younger and 1 in 10 over the age of 80.
The cornea is the front “windshield” of the eye. The main function of the cornea is to focus light. The cornea, in its normal state, is optically clear and therefore does not contain blood vessels to nourish it. Instead, your tears and aqueous humor (liquid filling the chamber behind the cornea) provide the needed nourishment for your cornea.
There are multiple disorders and conditions that can affect your cornea. It is very important to seek out a trained cornea specialist when you think you may have a cornea problem.
There is no pain associated with diabetic retinopathy. Gradual blurring of vision may occur, but changes in the eye can go undetected without a medical eye exam. If the retinopathy is advanced, the patient may experience clouding and vision loss from bleeding within the eye.
