Went in to get glasses and everyone was so professional and nice. Knew what they were doing and during this tough time they handled everything with the utmost in safety, even took my temp. when I went in. Nice to see people taking this seriously.
Very impressed with the professionalism and friendly staff.
Great service very helpful
It was a terrific experience from the moment I walked in. The staff was terrific, the staff and doctors dotted there I’s and crossed there T’s. The day of surgery Dr. Buckley sat me down for a few minuets and explained the procedure. Dr. Buckley made me go from nervous to calm. During the procedure Dr. Buckley was communicating with me and letting me know how it was going and what he was going to do next. They even allowed my girlfriend to watch in the next room. She’s now wanting to get Lasik, and by the same place. After the procedure Dr. Buckley made sure I was ok and what to have me do the next 3-4 days until my follow up. The only downside was that they do not take insurance because I was told it was cosmetic surgery. Be that as it may I still paid for the surgery and I would do it 10 times over with getting the results I have gotten. Skyline Vision has made my dream of not having glasses any more a reality, and I couldn’t be happier. If you do get this done. I would recommend taking a whole week off to help yourself as far as the medication. Thank you Dr. Buckley, the other doctors and great staff.

SILVER KEY'S ANNUAL HOLIDAY TRADITION CONTINUES
For nearly thirty years, Silver Key has worked with the Colorado Springs community to brighten the holidays for seniors in need. This year's Giving Tree agencies have been so generous; donating gifts, volunteering staff time, and supporting our efforts financially. Our 7th annual holiday party for clients takes place on Wednesday, December 13, from 1:30 - 3 p.m. at the Colorado Springs City Auditorium.

"Our clients look forward to this event every year and start asking about reservations in October! It is our pleasure to provide some fun and companionship since the holidays can be a particularly lonely time for them" said Pat Ellis, President of Silver Key.

Over the last few weeks, reservations have been pouring in from seniors who are excited to come to the party. Reservations are required as seating is limited and we anticipate 400 people will attend the event.

Donations from the community allow Silver Key to provide food and gifts to the seniors who attend the party. T. Rowe Price's employees have again played a key role in the celebration by providing homemade gingerbread houses which will be used as centerpieces and become door prizes for our guests to take home.

For more information about the event, please contact Lorri Orwig at 719 649-0974, or email at [email protected].

You may need to have cataract surgery on both eyes, but the surgeries will be scheduled on different days. It is possible to only need to have surgery on one eye.

Cataract surgery with monofocal lenses is typically covered by insurance and Medicare. If you choose to upgrade your vision with Lifestyle Lenses, there will be some added out-of-pocket expenses.

If you have more questions about cataract surgery, contact us at (719) 630-3937 to schedule a Cataract Evaluation.

Macular degeneration affects central vision, but not typically peripheral vision. In the early stages, you may not have any outward symptoms. As the disease progresses, you may experience:

* Blurriness
* Dark areas
* Distortion (typically straight lines or objects appearing wavy or crooked)
* Permanent loss of central vision

There is no average age to have cataract surgery; the time to have the procedure is when the cataract is affecting your vision enough to interfere with your normal lifestyle.

To learn more about cataracts or to schedule a consultation for cataract surgery, contact Skyline Vision Clinic at 719-630-3937.

The iris is the most noticeable part of the eye: the pigmented, circular portion. It is the part that makes your eye blue, brown, green, or hazel and is caused by the amount of pigment melanin that is present. Melanin is also the pigment that gives color to our skin and hair.

Nicotine causes blood vessels to constrict. This could potentially restrict the amount of blood flow to the optic nerve. In addition, intraocular pressure has been shown to increase after cigarette smoking. The toxins in cigarette smoke can circulate through the body and cause oxidative damage to the optic nerve and other parts of the eye. All these are likely to contribute to glaucoma damage.

Have you ever wondered what your tears are made of? If you’ve ever tasted a tear, you might think that tears are composed of salt. Well, you would be partly correct. Tears are mostly made of water but also contain salt, fatty oils, and over 1,500 different proteins. The electrolytes in tears include sodium, which is what gives tears their characteristic salty taste, bicarbonate, chloride, and potassium. Tears also contain low levels of magnesium and calcium.

Dry eye usually affects both eyes. Although uncommon, it is possible to experience dry eye in only one eye. In this case, the cause of the dry eye is most likely caused by a blocked tear duct. Sometimes both eyes are actually dry, but one is just more symptomatic.

Contact us to schedule a comprehensive eye exam by calling 719-630-3937.

Regular eye care is important to both mom and baby. Remember that actions during pregnancy can influence the health of the unborn baby, including their eyesight. Babies of mothers who smoke, drink alcohol, or take drugs during pregnancy have a higher risk of vision problems, including lazy eye (amblyopia), crossed eyes (strabismus), and refractive errors.

If you are pregnant and notice any vision changes, contact us right away at (719) 630-3937 to schedule an exam.

Eye exams aren’t just crucial for checking that your eyes are healthy and working the way they should, but they’re also a great way to get a look at how you’re doing in terms of overall health. The eye doctor may be the first one to spot early symptoms of chronic conditions like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and even cancer — all from a standard eye exam!

To schedule an eye exam, contact us today at (719) 630-3937.

You might think that you would notice if you had an eye problem, but our eyes and brains work hard to compensate when something goes wrong, so it’s harder to recognize than you might expect. For many people, headaches can be a symptom of uncorrected vision problems.

Reposition your computer screen, make a conscious effort to blink more often, drink more water, use an anti-glare screen or computer glasses, and follow the 20-20-20 rule (every 20 minutes, spend 20 seconds looking at something 20 feet away), to fight digital eye strain.

Timeline photos 07/29/2022

Many different mechanisms work together in our eyes to make blinking what it is. We produce different types of tears, and we have tiny oil glands working around the clock to replenish the protective tear film throughout the day. Isn’t it amazing what can happen in the space of a single-eye blink?

If you’re struggling with dry eye symptoms or eye strain, we encourage you to call (719) 630-3937 to schedule an eye exam.

Before inserting or removing contact lenses, always wash your hands and never reuse old solutions when storing them. The used solution is contaminated! Another critical way to keep contacts clean and minimize the risk of eye infection is to follow the replacement instructions on the packaging. That means don’t wear dailies longer than a day, don’t wear monthlies longer than a month, etc.

The UV light in tanning beds is so intense that even closing your eyes during a tanning session won’t protect them. A few of the eye health problems that can result from indoor tanning are cataracts, macular degeneration, dry eye, sunburn, and blurry vision. UV exposure can also cause dry eye, another condition that leaves the eyes red and irritated, and without sufficient tear production, they’re more vulnerable to infections. Prioritize eye health over skin tone!

MD is painless, and the effects on the vision might not appear immediately. Gradually, blurry or dark patches will begin to develop in the central vision. Other symptoms are that things might start to look duller than they used to or appear warped.

If you have any risk factors for MD, particularly a family history of the disease, call us at (719) 630-3937 to schedule your next appointment.

Cataract surgery is a virtually painless procedure performed in an outpatient surgical facility. You will receive anesthetic eye drops to numb your eye, and you’ll be offered medication to help you relax. The actual surgery usually takes less than 15 minutes per eye.

Many people are surprised to learn that keratoconus usually affects people who are in their late teenage years or early 20s. This is a condition that affects 1 in 2,000 of the general population. The condition is hereditary in some cases. It may also be caused by an enzyme imbalance in the cornea that causes the corneal tissue to weaken.

Our Story

Skyline Vision Clinic & Laser Center’s roots date back to 1985 when Britt Buckley, MD, had the vision to bring advanced eye care to southern Colorado. What began as a single location ophthalmology practice has now grown into an eye care powerhouse in this region. In fact, we have helped over 250,000 people improve and preserve their vision over the years – and each patient received individualized care. With locations reaching from Colorado Springs to Trinidad, our incredible team of ophthalmologists and optometrists can treat just about any type of vision problem or help manage diseases with no cure. Our goal is always to protect your precious vision.

Although Dr. Buckley retired from his profession in December 2019, the practice continues to thrive under the excellent leadership of Matthew Chang, MD; James Burden, MD; and Edward Stevenson, DO. Every board-certified doctor and every team member from the front desk staff to our technicians have a unified commitment to continue Dr. Buckley’s legacy and provide top notch, personalized eye care with compassion, respect and honesty.

We stay on the forefront of new technology for procedures such as blade-free LASIK vision correction as well as diagnosis and treatment for dry eye, glaucoma, diabetic eye care, corneal diseases/conditions, cataracts, eyelid surgery and more. If you are searching for an eye care team that can adapt to your changing eye care needs (due to aging, trauma, eye disease, etc.), we would be honored to start along this journey with you.

To schedule an eye exam and meet our team, contact us today at (719) 630-3937.
