Surgical services

Drs. Keller, Nichols and Cuevas utilize the latest technology and techniques for modern cataract extraction.

A micro-incision, no-stitch approach is used to minimize the risks of complications and allows the fastest possible visual recovery following surgery. Boulder Eye Surgeons also offers laser cataract surgery.

Other specialized techniques, such as the use of the toric intraocular lens to reduce astigmatism, are also utilized. Boulder Eye Surgeons is the first practice in the Denver metro area to use the revolutionary Crystalens™ accommodating intraocular lens. The surgeons also utilize the Tecnis Symphony extended range of focus lens.

Dr. Nichols is the only fellowship-trained pediatric ophthalmologist working full-time in Boulder County. He has performed hundreds of strabismus surgeries on both adults and children.

Drs. Keller, Nichols and Cuevas perform both incisional and laser surgeries for the management of glaucoma. They utilize the latest technology for the surgical management of glaucoma, including selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) and endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP).

Drs. Keller, Nichols and Cuevas also perform laser surgeries to treat glaucoma, diabetes and laser demarcation for retinal detachments.
