Rocky Mountain Eye Center

It is with a heavy heart that we share that Rocky Mountain Eye Center will be closing its doors on July 31, 2024, after 32 years of serving Southern Colorado.

This decision has been incredibly difficult, as we have cherished serving our patients and our communities. Despite our best efforts, we have not been able to financially recover after the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic.

While we do not know where our providers will land, they are committed to continue working to serve our local communities. We will be communicating when we know more about where our providers will be continuing to practice. We are working diligently to ensure a smooth transition for our patients.

We would like to thank our dedicated staff for many great years together.

Thank you all for being a part of the Rocky Mountain Eye Center family. We will miss you dearly.

With heartfelt gratitude,

The Rocky Mountain Eye Center Board of Directors

Medical Record Requests

Patients have a couple options:

  1. If you are a current patient wishing to obtain a copy of your medical records for your own personal files, please complete a medical records request form. This form can be found here on our website, or you may walk into an open office location to fill out the form in person. There will be a $20 deposit for personal medical record requests with the remaining fee due at pickup and is based on the number of total pages. These requests can take up to 2 weeks to receive. The fees are listed at the bottom of the request form.
  2. Patients that want their records sent to a new provider can complete the same request form and list the doctor’s office as the recipient of those records. The new doctor’s office can also submit a request for these records to our fax line at 719-542-6852. We respond to these requests electronically within 7-10 business days at no charge to the patient. If you still have questions, please leave a detailed message with your full name and date of birth. Have a great day.
  3. More information will be provided for patients needing their records after offices close on July 31st.
