Fort Collins Eye Doctors

At Poudre Valley Eyecare, our tenured practice runs generations deep. Dr. Michael Torgerson founded PVE over three decades ago in 1991 alongside his wife, Joy. Years later, the two were joined by their son, Eric, after he completed his professional optometry training. Since then, our practice has grown with the additions of Dr. Nicole Ethridge, Dr. Christine Shukis, and several other dedicated team members.

Our eye doctors are all proud members of the American Optometric Association, the Colorado Optometric Association, and the Northern Colorado Optometric Society. We’ve devoted our careers to learning the most trustworthy and advanced methodologies in vision and eye care to guarantee premium optometry services–from our family to yours.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Eric Torgerson’s for 10+years. He always takes as much time as I need to understand the various test results and what I can do to prevent deterioration of my eyesight. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a thorough eye examination.
