 Very knowledgeable staff, very friendly and understanding, extremely helpful! Thank you for everything!  --DS

 The eye exam was very thorough and Dr. Jessica and Lawrence were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Best eye doctor in Summit County. --MS

I just had an appointment with Dr. Jessica Hegewald at Blue River Vision in Silverthorne.  I think I'm going to nickname her Dr. J, because she, like Julius Erving, is certainly at the top of her game.  "Dr. J" took the time to explain everything she was doing during the exam, has a compassionate demeanor and quite obviously cares about her patients.  This is quite refreshing this day and age.  I highly recommend her practice if you are looking for an optometrist. --BS

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you open on the weekends?

To better serve the community, we are open two Saturday's a month.  We are not open every Saturday since Dr. Hegewald serves in the Colorado Air National Guard and is required to drill one weekend a month.  And for that fourth weekend......well, everyone needs a little bit of a break to enjoy this wonderful community we live in.

Do you offer evening appointments?

We know you are busy too, and it is hard to find time to get in.  That is why we offer evening appointments on Tuesdays and early morning appointments on Wednesdays.  If that doesn't work for you, let us know what would and we will try to accommodate.

Do you offer designer frames?

While we do offer some popular frame lines like RayBan, Oakley, Puma, Calvin Klein and Coach, we also offer independent frame manufacturers.  We feature companies that give back to their community.  Our frame line Eco is made out of plant based materials and plants one tree for every pair sold.  Modo is a company that runs a campaign to help a child see.  They give away a free pair of glasses in India for every pair they sell.  Jonas Paul is a company made by two parents to give fashion frames to children, since their son had a vision condition requiring glasses and they could not find any stylish frames.  They also donate a free pair to underprivileged children for every pair sold.  Zeal is a Boulder company that makes their frames out of plant based material.  They partner with Maui Jim for their lenses.  They donate to POW and also donate a pair of polarized sunglasses to the Sherpas for every pair they sell.
