Glaucoma Research Foundation
The Eye Care Center of Northern Colorado uses the latest advances in diagnostic imaging, including high resolution OCT and stereo fundus photography imaging. Our exam rooms are state of the art and allow for consultations in comfort and privacy. You can view our exam rooms and in-house laser suite here. We can perform glaucoma laser treatments like SLT, or selective laser trabeculoplasty, in a comfortable and convenient environment. For advanced cases requiring surgery, Dr. Rothstein and Dr. Sheth utilize the Longmont Surgery Center for performing procedures like cataract surgery, endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP), and traditional glaucoma filtering procedures.

Symptoms of Glaucoma
Glaucoma is often referred to as a “silent” thief of sight because many times there are no major symptoms of the condition in its early stages. Glaucoma is the result of optic nerve damage that may be caused by elevated intraocular (eye) pressure. If the condition is left untreated, blindness will occur.Read More...
MicroPulse Laser Treatment
At the Eye Care Center of Northern Colorado, we offer MicroPulse Laser Therapy (MPLT) to safely and effectively treat patients with retinal disorders and open-angle glaucoma. MicroPulse works by electronically "chopping" the continuous-wave laser emission used in conventional laser treatment, into trains of tiny, repetitive, low energy pulses separated by a brief rest period in between. This “micropulsing” allows the tissue to cool between laser pulses, preventing damage.Read more...
