WHAT GIVES US OUR EDGE?

A UNIQUE EYE CARE PRACTICE…

 

 

Edge Optics is a hip, local Eye Care Clinic in downtown Fort Collins! We are right across from Washington’s, on Laporte Avenue. Our fresh 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 or family-owned story.

We want to outfit our patients so they can truly embrace the Colorado lifestyle.

We also have elevated options for top-quality eye care, offering dry eye remedies, Lasik consultations, Cataract Consultations, Myopia Control and Retinal Imaging.

We also love catering to kids! Edge Optics has the coolest kids’ area in Fort Collins with 80’s videogames, rock climbing, and more! Dr. Bryant and Dr. Mitchell are both parents, so they are excellent at making kids comfortable with their eye exam experience. The eye examination will include a free toy for kids.

Dr. Bryant is an expert in fitting the most challenging contact lens wearers, and Dr. Mitchell is specialized in Myopia Management, which is a method to slow the progression of the RX over time.

Edge Optics has been around for over 11 years in Fort Collins, and we have ample experience serving the community. We enjoy connecting with our patients, like they are part of the Edgy family. We also give back to local businesses and charities and if you need a donation-please let us know! We are always here to help and want to see the success of Fort Collins continue to grow with a united effort.
