Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

Eye Disease Management Includes:

  • Comprehensive eye exam

    Comprehensive eye exams are critical in catching sight-robbing eye diseases that typically don’t show early symptoms.

  • Diagnostic screening

    Certain changes in your eyes can indicate eye conditions. Our optometrists can diagnose the disease and determine the cause of these changes.

  • Treatments and surgeries

    We provide a wide range of treatments, including prescription eye drops and other medication. If needed, we'll refer you to the right specialist for eye surgery.

  • After care and follow-up

    We provide follow-up exams and after-care treatments to help you manage your symptoms and safeguard your vision.


What Are the 4 Most Common Eye Diseases?

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    If you have diabetes, you should be aware of the risk of diabetic retinopathy. Elevated blood sugar can cause blood vessels in the eye to become inflamed or swell. In the early stages, you may not notice symptoms, but advanced diabetic retinopathy can cause blurred vision or eye inflammation.

    Diabetic retinopathy treatment includes:

    • Prescription medication
    • Laser surgeries
    • Anti-VEGF and steroid injections
    • Vitrectomy
  • Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness and often doesn’t show early symptoms. High pressure inside the eye causes glaucoma, and the purpose of glaucoma management is to reduce intraocular pressure.

    Glaucoma treatments include:

    • Prescription eye drops or medications
    • Laser procedures
    • Filtration surgery
    • Drainage tubes
    • Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)
  • Cataracts

    Cataracts are cloudy formations on the eye lens. They can make your vision blurry and distorted. To restore normal vision, an optometrist will recommend cataract surgery, which involves replacing the cloudy lens with an artificial intraocular lens.

  • Macular Degeneration

    Macular degeneration, or AMD, occurs when the macula or the central part of the retina deteriorates. This results in blurred and distorted vision.

    There are two types of AMD: Dry AMD and Wet AMD.

    Although there isn’t a treatment for dry AMD, lifestyle changes and specific supplements can help prevent further vision deterioration.

    Wet AMD treatments include:

    • Photodynamic therapy
    • Anti-VEGF injections
    • Laser photocoagulation

Distorted or Blurred Vision? Have a family history of serious eye diseases?

Schedule an eye exam at ABBA Eye Care - Academy in Colorado Springs. Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve eye health and prevent vision loss.

Emily was just amazing , The sweetest woman I have ever came across

Okay so I want to start this off with complementing the staff and doctors. Absolutely amazing people... and outstanding care. I’m so glad to find an eye doctor who accepts Medicaid! I have great vision, but recently I had something in my eye that scratched my cornea. It was the worst feeling in the world! They let me come in same day for an appointment before work, and worked super fast but with great care. Before them, I went to the ER. And they brushed me off like it wasn’t a big deal. The doctor at ABBA actually looked in my eye with a microscope to make sure the obstruction was out- it was thankfully. But I had scratches and irritation that is in the process of healing. Everyone was so kind and patient. I couldn’t ask for better. Thank you!

Shout out to EMILY! Amazing experience all around! My daughter has been going to the Fountain one fo... r years w/all great things to say, so I finally made it in for my exam but I went to the N Circle one. The Dr/staff were so amazing! When my contacts came in, it took me months to actually pick up (due to fractured ankle & injured back from gma on trampolines for M-Day) then hurt dominant arm, I was a mess! So I finally made it into the store before it moved locations but had to exchange 2 boxes & they were supposed to go to the Lake store near my home but somehow still went to the new store really far from me. When I called & Emily said they could mail them I thought it’d take too long but before I could say anything, Emily went way above & BEYOND saying she lived near the Lake store, so she’d be happy to drop them off there for me to pick up! What!? Really!? Im just beside myself at the service & her willingness to do that for me! I work in the medical field also & all too often do we hear all the awful complaints but rarely the appreciation & acknowledgment for being there for our patients. So THANK YOU EMILY for your amazing heart & service!! 💕

I have been coming here for my examination, glasses, and contacts for a couple of years now, and wil... l continue to do so. There are other options closer to me, but it is worth the extra drive for the added care that they show.

Go to ABBA Eyecare and see AJ!!!

We have had two amazing experiences at this location. In February I had my eye exam and a contact fi... tting. Today, my daughter had her annual eye exam. The optometrist is very kind, and explains everything clearly. AJ, who did both of our prep, helped me find glasses and order contacts was incredible. She was so helpful and made sure we were completely satisfied with our service. We live in Fountain, but we will always make the drive to this location because of the service provided. Thank you!

  • Have regular eye exams
What are the symptoms of serious eye problems?
