Each year Vista Eye Care has a photo session. This allows for all of our website and newsletter pictures to stay updated. While we are still waiting for the final pictures from the photographer, here are some pictures that we took that day! We had a couple of key staff members celebrating some pretty spectacular anniversaries with the practice as well:
We are so thankful to have Tara on our team! She just celebrated her 3rd anniversary with Vista Eye Care. Where would we be without Tara? She helps with insurance, billing, teching, and optical needs. Thank you Tara for all of your hard work!
We were sort of bored while taking pictures, so what better thing to do than take a goofy picture? Here’s all the doctors of Vista Eye Care: Dr. Jami Swenson, Dr. Melissa Vanray, Dr. Deanna Pedroza, and Dr. Brian Abert. Cheese!
Dr. Melissa Vanray has been caring for patients at Vista Eye Care for 4 years! We are thrilled to work with such a talented and amazing doctor!

Vista Eye Care is holding a LASIK Consultation Event on Tuesday, March 13th, 2018 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Working alongside TLC Vision Center in Denver, patients will be able to meet with TLC’s Clinical Director to see if they are a candidate for LASIK or PRK, and will also be able to discuss financing the procedure. See below for more information!
This event is a great opportunity for patients to look into the procedure, even if they are just thinking about the surgery. TLC is reducing their procedure cost by $300 per eye for those patients that attend this event. The appointment time is 20 minutes, and patients will not need to have their eyes dilated. Many of our patients have further questions about LASIK, financing the procedure, or just want to see if they are a good candidate for refractive vision surgery. Please call our office at (303) 450-2020 to schedule your FREE consultation.
This cute little baby with goofy hair and silly smile is none other than Dr. Abert and Dr. Pedroza’s little boy Nathan! He received his first eye exam at 5 months of age at an optometry meeting in California.
The American Optometric Association recommends children have their first eye exam at 6 months of age. InfantSEE is a public health program where participating providers offer a no-cost eye exam to children under one year of age. Vista Eye Care is a proud supporter of this program, and early-life eye care for children. It is important to catch any issues so that treatment can be started early. While children are frequently seen by dentists at an early age, their primary sensory organs (eyes!) are often not considered a priority until later in life. It is crucial to test eyes early to ensure that children’s eyes develop properly.
Things our eye doctors test for:
What we do during an InfantSee exam:
- Family history – Identify any family history of eye disease, high refractive error, or eye turn (strabismus). These are all traits that can be passed down to other generations. The child’s parents may have also noticed an issue with their children’s vision, such as, an eye turn or head turn. An eye turning in is ok up to 6 months and an eye turning out is ok up to 8 months, though anything beyond this could impact normal development of the visual system.
- Assess eye alignment – make sure the eyes are able to look in all directions. We perform techniques of eye alignment known as the cover test and the Bruckner test.
- Check refractive error – We use cyclopentolate drops to dilate the pupil and control the child’s focusing.
- Health assessment – We are able to look inside the eye, checking for congenital cataracts and posterior segment disease.
