Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and comprehensive eye care goes beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. Dr. Kara Fedders takes the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs. Our eye doctor provides the expert care, advice, options, and follow up you need whether you are a new patient or an existing one.

Dr. Fedders enjoys fitting contact lenses, especially specialty contacts, and has new diagnostic tests to detect and treat dry eyes. Dry eyes is a huge issue in our dry mountain climate and we have the solutions and relief for you. We have a Tear-lab and Inflamadry, two cutting edge products to battle dry eye. Dr. Fedders is here for pre and post-surgery care for glaucoma and she treats all different types of eye emergencies. Our comprehensive eye exams feature the use of the optomap, an anterior and posterior camera, which takes pictures of front and back of the eye so we can diagnose and give you the best care possible.

Located inside the Walmart on 8th Ave. in Colorado Springs, Dr. Fedders treats patients from Colorado Springs, Cascade, Divide, Woodland Park, Manitou Springs, and the surrounding communities. Our office is conveniently located inside Walmart on South 8th Street in Colorado Springs – schedule an appointment today.

Q&A Dr. Kara Fedders Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Q: Do you have any recommendations for people to help them avoid Dry Eye issues?

A: Remember to blink! Normally you blink about 15 times per minute. When you are working on a computer your blink rate can drop to 3 times per minute. Follow the 20/20 rule. Every 20 minutes take a 20 second break and look across the room to relax your eyes, and blink. Stay hydrated and take 1000 mg of fish oil each day.

Polite and professional. Completed a competent exam, provided me with my prescription (so I could buy glasses anywhere other than WalMart), and referred me to a specialist for glaucoma testing.
