Welcome To Eye Center Of The Rockies
We are your medical eye doctor (Eye M.D.) or ophthalmologist offering complete medical and surgical eye care for cataracts, glaucoma, retina and LASIK. Doctor Ehrlich is a medical doctor (M.D.) just like your family practice doctor, pediatrician, etc... This is in contrast to the other type of eye doctor or optometrist, who attends optometry school.
Currently, Dr. Ehrlich is the only ophthalmologist who practices full time in Eagle County and is one of only two in Garfield & Pitkin Counties. We also see patients (including children) for routine eye exams, eyeglass prescriptions and contact lens fittings. We look forward to taking care of your eye health.
When the cataract begins to impair visual function or cause disturbing symptoms that interfere with a person's daily activities, it can be removed. Several additional testing procedures must be performed prior to cataract surgery, including measurements of the length of the eye and assessment of the curvature of the cornea.
Many options are available today for the prosthetic lens that replaces the crystalline lens with its cataract. Some lenses, called multifocal lenses or accommodating lenses, allow for correction of both near and distance vision.
New Intraocular Lens Technology
Do you have cataracts? Cataract patients now have better options to see at both near and far distances after cataract surgery! Individuals suffering from cataracts previously had only a mono-focal lens implant option after surgery. NEW multi-focal IOL technology can now decrease dependence on glasses after surgery.
Flexible Spending Accounts Can Help You Save on LASIK
Many employers allow employees to earmark several thousands of dollars to help pay for a variety of elective procedures, including LASIK. If you are seeking LASIK in Colorado call us today to discuss how Flex Spending can help you save money. This makes vision correction affordable!
