Optical & Contact Lenses

The Optical Shops at both our Eye Center of the Rockies locations are committed to providing our patients with excellent, knowledgeable customer service from our Opticians, who are both ABOC Certified Opticians with over 50 years of combined experience.

We are dedicated to not only providing a prescription to help you see clearly, but also to helping you select a pair of frames that fits comfortably and correctly.  We offer the latest, up-to date lens technology, with some great lens package pricing to fit most of our patient’s needs.

Our emphasis is on VALUE, where our opticians’ gives each and every patient an individual fit and consultation based on what works for them and not just a bottom line price.  Some of our great VALUE packages include kid’s packages, 2nd pair discounts and sun glass eye wear, prescription and non-prescription.
