Corrective Lenses: Contacts and Glasses

There have never been more ways--and attractive ways--to manage a vision problem with corrective lenses. Our optometrists can help you determine the best solution for your condition, including eyeglasses and disposable and daily-wear soft and gas-permeable contacts. Specialty contact lenses are available, including torics, bifocals and a wide range of colored lenses.

Our Optical Boutique

Our Optical Boutique staff will help you choose the best eyewear for your facial structure and activity level. We offer an exceptional range of frames for children--including Disney(R), Flexon(R) and Nautica(R). Our adult frames include designs by Kate Spade(R), Calvin Klein(R), Nike(R) and Ralph Lauren(R). Our optical staff can also assist you with popular sunglasses (prescription or standard), Varilux(R) progressive multi-focal lenses and a variety of accessories and supplies.

Refractive Therapy Treatment

We assist our clients with both types of refractive therapy to correct or improve vision -- LASIK (which stands for laser in situ keratomy for near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism) and Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT), a non-invasive, totally reversible treatment.

Surgical Refractive Therapy -- Laser Vision Correction (LASIK)

Clients choosing LASIK receive all pre- and post-procedure care here and generally visit the LASIK center just once. If you are considering this option, we can conduct the comprehensive evaluation to confirm you are a good candidate and refer you to a LASIK specialist we know achieves excellent results.

Non-surgical Refractive Therapy -- Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)

Corneal refractive therapy manages nearsightedness during the day by having the client wear gas-permeable contact lenses only at night. The evaluation and fitting process is performed entirely in our office.

Vision Therapy

Some visual conditions cannot be treated adequately with just glasses, contact lenses and/or patching, and are best resolved through a program of Vision Therapy. North Park Vision Center is one of few optometric offices in Colorado specializing in vision therapy. This proven therapeutic approach can help both children and adults address vision problems that interfere with learning, daily living and sports performance.

Our approach to vision therapy recognizes the complexity of these problems and the need to address several factors at the same time. Clients currently benefiting from our "total view" program include:

  • Students who are not progressing at class level due to vision problems
  • Gifted students who are not achieving their potential due to vision problems.
  • Individuals diagnosed--and frequently misdiagnosed--with dyslexia and ADD/ADHD.
  • Those with crossed eyes, wandering eyes or "lazy" eye.
  • People with vision problems related to autism, developmental delays and head injuries.
  •  Athletes and others wanting to improve their coordination and enhance success.

Managing and Co-Managing Care

The skill and training of our professional team enable us to care for the majority of our clients' vision concerns, including allergies, iritis and more. Should highly specialized treatment be required, we can refer you to the right practitioner, help coordinate care and provide follow-up attention as necessary. This "co-management" approach is not only convenient for our clients, it is respectful of all provider relationships. Procedures we commonly co-manage include cataract surgery and LASIK surgery.

Other conditions--such as retinal and corneal problems, macular degeneration and field of vision loss--may well require long-term care by a specialist. We regularly provide these referrals, as well.
