We take the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs. Montrose Colorado's favorite optometrists know that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency, and your ability to process visual information seamlessly.
Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses is an important part of good eye care. However, even if your vision is sharp, it is important to have regular eye exams with an optometrist. Whether you need a routine eye examination, an eyeglasses fitting, treatment for an eye disease (such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, or diabetic retinopathy) or even eye surgery such as LASIK or cataract surgery, our eye doctors will provide you with expert eye care, advice, options and follow up.

As well, we are specialize in contact lens fittings even for the hard-to-fit patient because we have found that contact lenses truly can be suitable and comfortable for most people needing vision correction.
Q&A with Dr. D
Dr. Joanna Daly Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Can I get bifocal contact lenses?
I think the better question is “should I?” We do not recommend that you shower, swim, or sleep in your contact lenses. Tap water, a lake, the ocean, hot springs, and chlorinated pools have massive amounts of bacteria.
The space between your contacts and your eyes act as a little reservoir for the bacteria to grow in, which can lead to eye infections, corneal erosion, and vision loss. Please do not test your luck; remove your contact lenses while swimming, showering, and swimming.
If you absolutely MUST do these activities with your contacts in, Daily Disposable contact lenses can be worn and immediately thrown away after the activity, but even then, you are putting your eyes and vision at risk.
