The Colorado Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons (CSEPS) is a non-profit professional association for ophthalmologists. Ophthalmologists are medical doctors (MDs and DOs) who specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of the eye and visual system. We are dedicated to the public's direct access to ophthalmic care. 

Our mission:

  • Promote excellence in patient care;
  • Foster professional fellowship and continuing medical education; and
  • Be a strong advocate for patients and the physicians who serve them.

Like your primary care physician, pediatrician, neurosurgeon, cardiologist, etc, ophthalmologists go through an extensive training process. This includes a four-year pre-medical curriculum, four or more years in medical school, an internship and then at least three years of residency training in medical and surgical ophthalmology. Many of us have also completed extra years in fellowship training for retina, neuro-ophthalmology, pediatric ophthalmology, glaucoma, refractive surgery and oculoplastics. 

Ophthalmologists can deliver total eye care including primary, secondary and tertiary care. Specifically, ophthalmologists can provide vision services, contact lenses, eye examinations, medical eye care, surgical eye care, and can diagnose and treat ocular manifestations of systemic diseases. We also promote advancements in medical and surgical eye care, setting the standard for excellence for the health of the visual system.
