Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

Eye Disease Management Includes:

  • Comprehensive eye exam

    Comprehensive eye exams are critical in catching sight-robbing eye diseases that typically don’t show early symptoms.

  • Diagnostic screening

    Certain changes in your eyes can indicate eye conditions. Our optometrists can diagnose the disease and determine the cause of these changes.

  • Treatments and surgeries

    We provide a wide range of treatments, including prescription eye drops and other medication. If needed, we'll refer you to the right specialist for eye surgery.

  • After care and follow-up

    We provide follow-up exams and after-care treatments to help you manage your symptoms and safeguard your vision.


What Are the 4 Most Common Eye Diseases?

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    If you have diabetes, you should be aware of the risk of diabetic retinopathy. Elevated blood sugar can cause blood vessels in the eye to become inflamed or swell. In the early stages, you may not notice symptoms, but advanced diabetic retinopathy can cause blurred vision or eye inflammation.

    Diabetic retinopathy treatment includes:

    • Prescription medication
    • Laser surgeries
    • Anti-VEGF and steroid injections
    • Vitrectomy
  • Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness and often doesn’t show early symptoms. High pressure inside the eye causes glaucoma, and the purpose of glaucoma management is to reduce intraocular pressure.

    Glaucoma treatments include:

    • Prescription eye drops or medications
    • Laser procedures
    • Filtration surgery
    • Drainage tubes
    • Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)
  • Cataracts

    Cataracts are cloudy formations on the eye lens. They can make your vision blurry and distorted. To restore normal vision, an optometrist will recommend cataract surgery, which involves replacing the cloudy lens with an artificial intraocular lens.

  • Macular Degeneration

    Macular degeneration, or AMD, occurs when the macula or the central part of the retina deteriorates. This results in blurred and distorted vision.

    There are two types of AMD: Dry AMD and Wet AMD.

    Although there isn’t a treatment for dry AMD, lifestyle changes and specific supplements can help prevent further vision deterioration.

    Wet AMD treatments include:

    • Photodynamic therapy
    • Anti-VEGF injections
    • Laser photocoagulation

Distorted or Blurred Vision? Have a family history of serious eye diseases?

Great team here! My husband and son see Dr L and I saw Dr K, both of the ladies are excellent at wha... t they do. The exam process was painless and I was relieved they quickly pin pointed my needs. The frame fit staff did a great job getting me through the selection process with glasses that fit me and my needs. Personalized Adjustments when I picked them up to make sure they are the perfect.

Athena was great- she helped me select frames I am very pleased with. I was not looking forward to s... hopping for frames because I can be so picky. She made it a pleasure with her buoyant spirit and great personality... I got a cool pair of Ray Ban frames. She also got me the best price with my benefits, in house benefits and even a rebate from the manufacturer. So for me , it was a highly beneficial experience!

I’ve been going to Eyes of the World ever since living in Denver. Really excellent care team here!... Dr. Lachenman is a fantastic optometrist: very thorough, considerate, and clear. I have referred several people to her because she provides such comprehensive care, and she understands the insurance side as well; not all optometrists make sure their patients know about medically necessary contacts if their prescriptions qualify, but Dr. Lachenman is great about this. The rest of the staff are very efficient and friendly people. Optician Jesse Vega is extremely knowledgeable about glasses hardware and lenses, and also great with navigating vision insurance benefits. Overall a very positive care experience.
