Here at the Denver LASIK Vision Center we understand that your eyesight is perhaps your most important sense, and that is exactly why we cannot stress enough importance of choosing the right eye doctor. We always recommend to any of our Denver eye surgery and cataract surgery patients to use the same care and consideration in choosing your eye care provider just as you would your family doctor. Our LASIK surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and a member of the ASCRS.
Meet Our Doctor
Dr. William Richheimer
Dr. William Richheimer developed a deep connection with Colorado while serving his residency in Denver at Saint Josephs Hospital. He then left Colorado for refractive eye surgery training and medical education at distinguished vision care centers around the US. Dr. Richheimer then came back to Colorado to establish his own leading eye center and establish himself as one of the most hands-on Lasik surgeons in Denver. It is for this reason that our patients continue to come back regularly.
Dr. Richheimer prides himself on being on the leading edge of refractive eye surgery and vision care technology. He was the first doctor in the country to become certified in Staar Implantable Contact Lenses often referred to as ICL, the first Lasik surgeon in the country to perform DSEK (Descemet’s Stripping with Endothelial Keratoplasty), and one of the few corneal cross-linking surgeons located in Colorado. As cataract surgery becomes more common within the population, Dr. Richheimer is continuously advancing his technique and technology to provide our patients with only the most proven and advanced options for cataract surgery.
Whether its taking time to provide education or volunteering in the local Denver community, actively participating is something that Dr. Richheimer is passionate about to improve our city. He’s dedication is not limited to Denver and Dr. Richheimer has traveled to countries in need to offer his knowledge, experience, and surgical expertise.
When he is not in the office, Dr. Richheimer loves spending time with his family pursing adventures around Denver as well as training for triathlons.
