The Best Eye Doctors Fort Collins – Services and Support

Formerly Vision Eyeland

Serving the Fort Collins & the Front Range Since 1991

Searching for the “best optometrists near me”? We’re extremely proud of our optometrists here at Poudre Valley Eyecare, but we also know that finding a high-quality eye doctor is only one piece of the puzzle. You’ve also got to consider which services you need, as well as what services you may be covered for.

That’s why we strive to offer complete eyecare, from regular appointments to management of chronic conditions and emergency care. Read on for more about what we do here in our Fort Collins optometry office.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

Whether you’re one year old or 100, your eyes play an important role in your quality of life. Too often, our eyes are taken for granted – until something goes wrong, that is. Scheduling a routine comprehensive eye exam is vital to maintaining your eye health and vision. Find the following services performed by industry-backed, innovative optometry equipment when you visit our clinic:

  • Visual acuity test – we’ll put you in front of a chart and have you read it with one eye covered at a time.
  • Binocular vision assessment- vision is much more than just 20/20. Our eye doctors take the time to assess how your eyes work as a team for optimal performance.
  • Comprehensive evaluation of all structures of the eye and visual system including dilation and if requested a high-resolution image of 200 degrees of your retinas with the latest in technology Optos Optomap.
  • Determination if you are in need of vision correction via glasses, contacts or other options available to you.
  • Visual field testing – we feel a true comprehensive exam not only includes making you see your very best but also making sure you’re seeing everything you should be.

Pediatric Eye Care

Vision shapes how children perceive and interact with the world, impacting not only academics, but also their behavior, interpersonal skills, and other important areas of development. Our kid-friendly optometrists will screen your child’s vision and check for any signs of a problem. They focus on helping kids feel comfortable at every stage of the process.

You can visit our pediatric eye care page to learn more about how we help you care for your child’s vision, including a list of when to schedule appointments for growing kids.

Acute Disease Management

A sports injury, splashing chemicals, something getting in your eye, a sudden infection — these problems mean you need to be seen by an eye doctor as quickly as possible. Our eye doctors are trained and ready to address these uncomfortable situations fast.

When you have an eye or vision problem that needs to be addressed quickly, time is of the essence. Read more about our acute disease management services to find out how we address these sudden-onset conditions.

Chronic Disease Management

We want you to have the healthiest eyes and the best vision possible. Even if you have a chronic vision problem or a health issue that affects your vision, there are often steps we can take to treat symptoms and prevent the problem from worsening.

Chronic problems we treat in our Fort Collins optometry office include:

  • Binocular vision problems
  • Dry eye
  • Cataracts
  • Diabetes
  • Glaucoma
  • Macular degeneration

Our eye doctors understand that chronic problems require unique treatment plans for each patient, with eyecare for you and your life in mind. We’ll listen carefully to your needs and tailor our approach to match. Learn more about our chronic disease management philosophy and our local partnerships with surgeons and specialists.

Medicare Eye Exams

Different Medicare plans offer different types of coverage. We’ll work with you to determine what’s covered under your plan and what type of care is best.

Our Fort Collins optometrist services include the “Welcome to Medicare” preventative visit vision test offered for new Medicare Part B patients, as well as medical eye exams usually covered by Medicare.

We never want you to be surprised by the cost of our complete eyecare services. We’re happy to talk through the coverage under your plan and help you determine if you qualify for regular eye exams for medical reasons, such as diabetes or eye disease. Our Medicare coverage page has more information, and you can always reach out to our office directly, too.

Medicaid Eye Exams

Poudre Valley Eyecare accepts Medicaid and can work with you to figure out what your coverage is and how to get the vision care you need.

Medicaid coverage for eyecare varies state by state, as well as with age; generally, children and young adults between 0 and 20 have more generous coverage for a wide variety of eye exam and standard vision benefits. Adults 21 and older have exams covered on a regular basis, as well as coverage for medically necessary eye exams.

Diabetic Eyecare

Both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes require careful monitoring for eye and vision problems, including retinopathy and cataracts. Because diabetes is one of the most common causes of blindness, we take monitoring vision for our patients with diabetes — or who are at risk for diabetes — very seriously. Our goal is to help you maintain your eyesight and vision health.

Regular eye exams are hugely important for anyone with diabetes, prediabetes, or who may be susceptible to diabetes. That’s because catching problems early is key to stopping damage. Our diabetic eyecare information goes into more depth on what to look for and what to expect.


We partner with Eyemart Express, located right next to our optometry practice, to offer you lab-quality frames made in-house to your specifications. They offer a huge range of frames in styles to flatter every face and suit a wide variety of lifestyles. Our partnership allows our office staff to be entirely focused on vision health and prescribing lenses, rather than balancing that focus with crafting lenses or sourcing frames in-house.

Emergency Eye Care

When you need emergency care for your eyes, you need it right away. That could be due to an injury or a sudden problem with your vision. Eye doctors are equipped to assess the problem, treat a wide range of conditions, and refer you for any additional medical care necessary.

Give us a call if you or a loved one is experiencing a need for emergency eye care. You can also read more about our emergency eyecare services and when to visit an emergency room versus seeking an appointment with an optometrist.

More Optometry Services

Poudre Valley Eyecare is so much more than your basic Fort Collins eye doctor; visit our comprehensive eye exam office for help and treatment on eye problems big and small. We back our patients with 25+ years of acute and chronic eye disease management, as well as emergency care. Acute diseases tend to be caused by sports trauma, splashed chemicals, or foreign objects getting into the eye. These injuries inflict pain or cause trouble to your vision, whereas chronic diseases are more long-term. We offer treatments for the following chronic eye conditions:

Dry eyes:

A condition characterized by insufficient tear production, causing discomfort and irritation in the eyes.


A clouding of the eye’s natural lens, leading to blurry vision and decreased visual clarity.


A group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve, often due to increased intraocular pressure, resulting in vision loss or blindness.

Macular degeneration:

A progressive deterioration of the central portion of the retina (macula), leading to a loss of central vision.

Binocular vision problems:

Issues that affect the coordination and alignment of both eyes, resulting in difficulties with depth perception and binocular vision.
