At Insight Eyecare Center, we are pleased to offer a wide range of optometry services for our community! Our experienced optometrists can provide you with thorough eye evaluations, determine if you need corrective lenses and your exact prescription strength, fit you with the appropriate specialty eyewear, and help you pick out the most flattering pair of glasses for your face shape and skin tone.
Our new patient appointments always begin with a comprehensive eye exam. If you are unsure of your family’s eye health history, it’s helpful to research beforehand, so we can better evaluate your own eye health. If you have never had a comprehensive exam, don’t worry! All the tests and exercises are simple and painless.
Dr. Gibson and Dr. Zemke can diagnose and treat eye diseases and identify general eye health problems including diabetes, anemia, high blood pressure, and others. We can also test for and fit specialty eyewear for sports, occupations, other activities and hobbies, and safety glasses.
We can answer your questions about optometry services, our eye care practice, eye health products, and more.
Routine/Comprehensive eye exams
We assess your vision and general eye health. This is like a physical or wellness exam, but for your eyes!
Medical eye evaluations
This could be anything from just general eye irritation to a possible eye infection. If your eyes are bothering you in any way, we will be able to diagnose the problem and provide you with the solution.
Just got poked in the eye? Sudden flashes of light in your vision? Severe eye pain? If its anything that just can’t wait until tomorrow we will get you seen same day. Call us at 920-428-5108 for any after hours eye emergencies.
Dry eye/ocular allergies
Colorado is notorious for being dry and windy. As a result, dry eyes and allergies are very common. We can provide solutions to help for right now and for the long term.
Standard and Specialty Contact Lens fitting
If your looking to try contact lenses for the first time or just get back into them again, we can help. We will evaluate your eyes and your specific needs in order to find the best contact lens for you. We can also design custom fitted contact lenses. If you have been told you can’t wear contact lenses in the past, our custom fabricated lenses might be able to change that!
Orthokeratology Contact Lenses
Also called CRT lenses, or corneal reshaping lenses, these are custom contact lenses designed to be worn overnight while sleeping and removed upon awakening. This then allows you to see clearly throughout the day without wearing anything at all. These lenses are also great for stabilizing vision in children.
Laser Vision Correction/LASIK Screenings
This is a free service we offer for anyone considering LASIK or another form of surgical vision correction. We will first screen your eyes to determine if you’re a good candidate. We then discuss all options available to you and provide you with information on the area’s top surgeons.
If you already suffer from glaucoma, or perhaps just have a family history of glaucoma, your eyes should be monitored regularly. Our doctors not only screen all patients for glaucoma at their routine examinations, they can also diagnose and treat the condition using the latest testing equipment and medications.
Macular Degeneration care
Also referred to as age related macular degeneration, this condition can slowly deteriorate your vision over time. Because of this, early detection and intervention is key. We will evaluate your macular health closely to help detect, and if needed, treat this condition.
Both of our offices currently offer a wide variety of glasses and sunglasses to choose from. This includes choices for all ages and for all budgets. Many of our glasses also include an unlimited two-year warranty. We also continue to be in-network with most insurance companies. This means our office can put your insurance benefits to use for you, often times resulting in a reduced out-of-pocket cost, and sometimes no out-of-pocket cost. In addition to glasses, we sell a variety of contact lenses, some available for purchase same day, others can be mailed directly to your home or office at no additional cost.
The American Optometric Association recommends that a child receive their first eye exam between 6-12 months of age.
Both of our offices participate in the “InfantSEE” program which allows parents to bring their infants in for a FREE eye exam between 6-12 months of age. At this exam, we screen for vision problems that can lead to vision development issues such as large refractive errors and eye turns. We also check the overall health of the eyes. To learn more about children’s vision and the InfantSee program please visit infantsee.org.
Both of our office are fully equipped with all the instrumentation needed to aid with the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinal detachments, and amblyopia. In addition, our Littleton office also has the latest in electrodiagnostic equipment. We are able to perform both electroretinograms and visual evoked potential testing. This technically often allows for even earlier detection of conditions like glaucoma and macular degeneration. It is also very useful in monitoring for progression of these conditions over time.
Custom Therapeutic Contact Lenses
For many individuals, traditional soft contact lenses are unable to adequately correct vision, or sometimes will not fit the shape of an eye. Those with very high levels of astigmatism or nearsightedness, keratoconus, very flat corneas from refractive surgery, or bulging corneas from LASIK complications are common causes for these problems. Our doctors are experienced in all alternative contact lens options, many of which are custom designs. These may include Synergeyes lenses, which are a hybrid of a soft lens with a hard center, scleral lenses, which are large diameter hard lenses, and rigid gas permeable lenses (RGP’s), which are smaller diameter hard lenses. We even fit custom soft lenses (KeraSoft IC, NovaKone) specifically for keratoconus as well. All of these lens options can be fully customized to fit almost any eye shape, and correct almost any prescription. These types of lenses can also sometimes provide individuals with vision far superior to what glasses would otherwise provide.
Certified Performance Vision Center
We take pride in not only enhancing vision, but also protecting vision. Therefore, we are a Certified Performance Vision Center. With this, we offer a wide range of protective eyewear to ensure that your eyes and vision are safe during all activities. This ranges from sports glasses/goggles, certified ANSI Z87.1 safety glasses for workplace requirements, and even protective eyewear for biking and motorcycle riding. Most of these options are available both with and without prescription.
Prescription Ski and Swim Goggles
If you require crisp clear vision while recreating in either the snow or the water we can fit you with prescription ski googles and prescription swim googles. These are a great alternative to wearing glasses under your goggles or having to wear contact lenses.
