One of the most important components of any laser vision correction procedure is the type of laser used to perform the procedure.

We were also the first center in our region to offer multiple laser technologies for the diverse needs of our patients. In October of 2002, we became the first laser center in Southern Colorado offering IntraLASIK, the bladeless approach to LASIK.
Dr. Wright’s commitment to the most advanced technology has helped us to achieve the best results possible for our patients.
