WHAT GIVES US OUR EDGE?
A UNIQUE EYE CARE PRACTICE…
Edge Optics is a hip, local Eye Care Clinic in LoTown, Fort Collins! We are right across from the CSU campus, and near Old Town on College and Laurel. Our funky eye care practice offers handpicked, chic eyeglasses, beautiful sunglasses, affordable goggles, and sport-specific products for any Colorado activity. We have tried to pick as many unique brands as we can get our hands on that align with our values: eco-friendly, U.S. made or designed, and with a give-back philosophy and family-owned story. We want to outfit our patients to rock Colorado outdoor sports, in style.
We also love catering to kids! Edge Optics has the coolest kids’ area in Fort Collins with 80’s videogames, toys, and more! Dr. Bryant is a great eye doctor, and as a dad himself, he knows how to work with kids and does a great job making them comfortable with their eye exam experience. Dr. Schieber also has a knack for reaching a younger demographic with her big smile and genuine charm. She has gained valuable experience with eye exams for any age or demographic.
