Eye Care Services
At Envision Boulder, we provide a wide range of eye care services. We are pleased to offer the following optometry services to our community. An eye exam in our office is a thorough evaluation of the eye. It is also a determination of prescription for glasses or contact lenses.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
At Envision Boulder, we believe that routine eye care is essential to maintain good vision. A comprehensive eye exam in our office includes a glasses prescription, a contact lens prescription, if needed, and a thorough evaluation of the health of the eye including either the Optomap retinal exam or retinal dilation.
One of the unique things about our practice is that we have always been on the forefront of technology in eye care. We believe that in order to provide the best care to our patients, we should utilize the latest technology available. This technology aids in disease detection and management, specialty contact lens fittings, while also enhancing the routine care provided to our patients. We often hear from our new patients that we provide the most thorough exams that they’ve ever had.
At the conclusion of your exam, your doctor will review the test results and discuss your options. From glasses and contact lenses to CRT (corneal refractive therapy) and LASIK – most people today have several choices when it comes to vision correction. As your primary eye care specialists, our goal is to help you understand which are best suited to your eye health, your visual demands, and your lifestyle.
Vision exams may include:
- Testing visual acuity or refractive error
- Pupil evaluation with or without dilation
- Examination of peripheral visual field
- Color vision testing
- Analysis of the visual systems
- Examination of the external parts of the eye
- Intraocular pressure measurement

Optomap Retinal Exam
In our continued effort to bring the most advanced eye care technology to our patients, Envision Boulder is pleased to offer the Optomap Retinal Exam as an integral part of our comprehensive eye exam. The Optomap produces a digital wide-field image of your retina and allows us to perform a more thorough exam than is possible without pupil dilation.
Any comprehensive vision exam should include a careful look at the retina, the lining of the back of the eye, to screen for abnormalities or disease that can ultimately lead to loss of vision, making early detection of any retinal abnormality crucial. The result is that we can better prevent or reduce vision loss in our patients with a simple, quick, and patient-friendly exam.
We look forward to discussing this revolutionary exam with you at your next appointment.
LASIK is a surgical procedure that uses a laser to reshape the clear front surface of the eye (the cornea) in order to improve vision and reduce dependence on corrective lenses. It is capable of treating a broad range of prescriptions.
As your primary eye care specialists, the doctors of Envision Boulder are available to help you understand your options, your candidacy, and help make the right decisions for your eyes. We have been co-managing laser vision patients since 1995 and work closely with the most experienced surgeons in the area, providing preoperative evaluation and postoperative care. We will also discuss your expectations for LASIK and whether it’s possible to meet them.
If you decide that LASIK is right for you, we will refer you to an experienced surgeon for the procedure. While LASIK is an exciting option for vision correction, it is not a choice that you should make based on advertising or price alone. You deserve an honest and frank discussion about whether you’re a good candidate for LASIK. Let us know if you are interested in this procedure and we can discuss your options.
Corneal Refractive Therapy
Imagine waking up in the morning and having the ability to see clearly without glasses or contact lenses. Now you can with Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) – overnight vision correction that offers freedom from glasses and contacts all day without refractive surgery.
CRT is a specially designed therapeutic contact lens that gently reshapes the cornea while you sleep. CRT has been proven both safe and effective for patients of all ages when worn during sleeping hours, earning this therapy FDA approval for nighttime use. It has also been shown to slow down myopic progression in children whose eyes are rapidly becoming more nearsighted.
According to FDA approval for this procedure, eye care professionals must be certified to fit this special lens. At Envision Boulder, all of our doctors are certified and experienced in CRT and will be happy to help you decide whether this exciting new option in vision correction is right for you.
