At Colorado West Ophthalmology, our doctors work to provide you with complete, comprehensive medical and surgical ophthalmic care right at home on the Western Slope. We have invested in the latest technology available to offer the very best to our patients. We know the value of good vision is priceless.
Come on in and see the difference.
We offer comprehensive eye exams for glasses and contacts for patients of any age. We also have the expertise available to fit those difficult contact lenses for astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus, or post corneal transplantation.
We are fortunate to have Alpine Optical located at the front of each of our locations, ready to help with any optical needs. The optical staff has the expertise to help fit you for glasses.
We offer the latest technology in lens implants and correction of astigmatism, all with a small incision, and “no stitch” cataract surgery. Surgeries are done with the most up-to-date technology available at both Black Canyon Surgery Center in Montrose and at Delta County Memorial Hospital outpatient surgery in Delta.
We offer state-of-the-art care for both the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma. Both offices are equipped with OCT and automated visual field machines to aid in the diagnosis and follow-up of each glaucoma patient. When needed, our doctors can treat glaucoma patients with our in-office Argon laser or perform glaucoma surgery to slow the glaucomatous disease.
Our practice has the latest technology including OCT scans to measure retinal thickness, and fluorescein angiography to evaluate blood flow to the eye – both are helpful in the diagnosis and treatment of macular degeneration patients. Our physicians treat macular degeneration with the most current treatments, including intravitreal injections of Avastin.
laser vision correction
Our doctors are available for consultation to discuss the latest in laser vision correction. We will help in the coordination of your refractive surgery with doctors that we have developed a strong relationship with. This allows patients to have refractive surgeries performed and then to coordinate the postoperative care right here on the Western slope.
Our in-office Argon and YAG laser allow treatment of retinal tears, holes, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, and the cloudiness that can occur after cataract surgery safely and conveniently right in Montrose.
Our physicians are well versed in the management and diagnosis of diabetic-related eye disease and ocular complications that are related. When necessary, we perform laser or injection therapy to help with vision-threatening conditions related to diabetes. Our doctors will work to communicate with your primary care physician in coordinating your diabetic care.
eyelid plastic surgery
In addition to removal of skin cancers of the eyelids and face, our surgeons fix entropion and ectropion (turning in or out of the eyelids), droopy eyelids or ptosis, and treatment for excessive tearing, as well as excessive skin of the upper eyelid (blepharoplasty). Many of these procedures can be done in our in-office surgical suite.
2 Convenient locations
Come visit us at whichever location is most convenient for you, located in either Montrose or Delta Colorado. Not only do we have two locations across the Western Slope, but both of our offices are also located near the Montrose Surgical Center and hospitals, where we perform some of our surgeries.
