Our Focus is You

At Poudre Valley Eyecare, we live by the motto, “Our Focus is You.” For more than 30 years, Dr. Torgerson and his staff have been a part of the Fort Collins community, providing top-rated comprehensive eye care services for patients of all ages. We aren’t satisfied with simply providing routine eye care; we constantly educate ourselves, invest in new technology, and find ways to make your experience better. We’re a family-run business, which means we understand the value of relationships, trust, and comfort. Whether we’re performing a basic medical eye exam or co-managing your LASIK surgery, you are at the center of our attention, and we’ll always go the extra mile to make your life better.

Why we are different

One thing you will notice when you visit our Fort Collins family eye care center is that we don’t split our time and energy between patient care and retail. While other private practices up and down the Front Range juggle patients and eyewear sales, we keep it simple. Why? Because you trust us to put you and your family first, and we can’t do that when we’re treating you like a retail customer instead of a patient. Our convenient location next to Eyemart allows our patients more choice and convenience and allows us to keep our focus on what matters most to us, YOU!

At the end of the day, we’re a family, and we’re dedicated to caring for yours. Learn more about our eye doctors, eye care services and what we can do for you in Fort Collins.
