At Rocky Mountain Eye Care, we pride ourselves in having the best team for your family. Whether you’re in need of LASIK or Pediatrics, we offer only the finest in total family care.
The most common type of refractive eye surgery done today. LASIK corrects myopia (near-sightedness) hyperopia (far-sightedness) and astigmatism to improve vision without glasses or contact lenses.
Development of the visual system occurs early in life. The greatest part of development occurs during the first year. Due to so much taking place at such a young age – it’s critical that detection of any vision problems be made as soon as possible so permanent problems can be avoided.
The eye is like a camera and uses a lens to focus. The natural or “crystalline” lens of the eye is located behind the iris. To function properly it needs to be clear and free of opacity. When the lens is not clear we call this a cataract. The most common cause is that of aging. Cataracts may also be genetic and occur in families.
The cornea is the front window of the eye. It is the clear tissue that covers the iris (the colored tissue), pupil and lens. When the cornea becomes clouded or misshapen from disease, injury, or infection, it can be replaced with a human donor cornea transplant.
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States. It encompasses a group of conditions that can result in optic nerve damage. This damage causes loss of site, even complete blindness.
Your eyes say so much. That’s why we believe today’s eye exams* should be thorough and comfortable thanks to the state-of-the-art technologies and specialized tools available.
