Denver Eye Doctor

With over 30 years of experience as a Board Certified eye doctor, our Dr. Richard Levinson and his capable staff offer complete eye care services to the people of the Denver area. We have helped thousands of people throughout the Metro and Boulder areas to reduce their dependence on corrective lenses.

Our clinic offers a full range of eye care services, including cataract surgery, LASIK and PRK laser eye surgery, glasses and contacts, routine eye care, and glaucoma treatment. The mission is simple; we provide state-of-the-art technical expertise, a kind and inviting atmosphere, and very reasonable fees. By this way, we have built and maintained a reputation as one of the largest and most capable solo Ophthalmology practices in Denver.

Three decades as an eye doctor in Denver leaves a mark on the skills and abilities brought to bear on the eye problems of our patients. As one of the first operational Laser Vision Correction centers in Denver, we offer both LASIK and the increasingly popular PRK laser surgeries. Both are completely safe and yield excellent results. More than 90 percent of adults who wear glasses or contacts are potential candidates for laser vision correction.

Cataract surgery is the single most common surgery performed in the U.S. today. Performed as an out-patient procedure, it can offer significant improvement in vision quality. A cataract is a clouded lens in the eye, and if left untreated, can lead to near or total blindness. This can be treated by replacing the clouded lens with a clear plastic one. As an elective surgery, it is typically performed when ones day-to-day duties are impaired by poor eyesight. The cataract doesn’t physically damage the eye, but it can definitely lead to very blurry vision.

Another fairly common ailment seen here as a Denver eye doctor is glaucoma. An estimated four million people have glaucoma, even if as many as half don’t even know it. Glaucoma is the name given to a group of incurable eye diseases that cause damage to the optic nerve of the eye. If left untreated, it can easily cause blindness. While there is currently no cure, and any resulting vision loss is not reversible, it can be delayed and often prevented with early diagnosis and treatment. While everyone has the potential to be affected, certain groups such as African Americans, people over 60, diabetics, and people with eye injuries are more susceptible. Glaucoma is treated with specialized eye drops, or a laser treatment.

Dr. Levinson has more than three decades of experience as a Denver eye doctor, and there is no one better qualified to provide best-in-field eye care.
