Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision - many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Dr. Fedders takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Meet Our Colorado Springs Optometrist:
Kara Fedders, OD is a native of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She completed her undergraduate coursework at the University of Nebraska and later received her Bachelor of Science in Optometry and Doctor of Optometry degree from Indiana University School of Optometry.
Dr. Fedders started wearing glasses and contacts at a young age and it changed her life. As a result of this positive experience and the fact that she spent so much time in her optometrist’s office growing up, she was inspired to become one herself.
Dr. Fedders specialties include contact lens fitting, treatment of dry eyes, infections, foreign body removal and Lasik pre-and-post-op care. She has been in practice for 17 years and during her time off she enjoys water sports such as scuba diving, waterskiing, wakeboarding, and boating. She also enjoys hiking, snowboarding, and snowshoeing in the Colorado outdoors with her golden retriever, Murphy. She has a passion for travel and hopes to see the world with her husband, Scott.
An active member of the Lions Club. Dr. Fedders also volunteers with VOSH optometry missions every year, traveling to South America and other locations around the world.
Dr. Fedders’ office is conveniently located in the Walmart on S. 8th Street in Colorado Springs
