Who We Are

Dr. Erik Anderson is a fellowship-trained ophthalmologist based in Denver, Colorado. While growing up in Colorado, Dr. Anderson was raised in a healthcare environment and was focused from an early age on a career in medicine. After completing his undergraduate degree with Honors from the University of Chicago, he received a Master’s Degree from Georgetown University before completing medical school at the University of Illinois. Upon his graduation, he completed an ophthalmology residency at Chicago’s Cook County Medical Center, one of the country’s busiest hospitals. In residency, he achieved the 90th percentile on the annual ophthalmology in-service exam and 95th percentile in cataract and corneal surgical volume. In his final year, he was elected Chief Resident by his attendings. Dr. Anderson then completed a Corneal, Refractive, and External Disease Fellowship at Wake Forest University and made a humanitarian trip to Honduras to provide complex surgical services to the underprivileged local community. In his free time, Dr. Anderson enjoys skiing, golf, and spending time with his wife and two young children.

What our patients say

Dr. Anderson did a fantastic job with my LASIK procedure. I was very pleased with the results. He was thorough, and took time to answer all of my questions to ensure I was well informed on what to expect pre, post and during the procedure. I felt very comfortable with him and trusted that the health of my eyes was his highest priority. I highly recommend, Dr. Anderson, he does great work and is a caring ophthalmologist!

Rachel Woodside

Dr. Anderson performed my LASIK surgery in June and I only have positive things to say about the experience. Dr. Anderson was not only professional but also very personable ophthalmologist. The consultation was informative where he went over the procedure and addressed all my questions/concerns.

Quynh Nguyen

Dr. Anderson vastly improved my quality of life! It is so wonderful to open my eyes in the morning and be able to see clearly! At my first appointment, he took the time to explain the procedure to me and answer all of my questions. Surgery itself was a snap and his follow-up care was excellent. It is obvious that Dr. Anderson truly cares about his patients and their well-being.

Eyecare Services

Dr. Anderson is an ophthalmologist with a focus in cornea, cataract and LASIK surgery

Eye Exam

As an ophthalmologist, Dr. Anderson performs routine eye exams and screens for glaucoma, hypertension, and diabetes. As part of the eye exam, an updated eyeglasses prescription will provided that can be taken to any optometrist.

Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a cloudy lens that can cause blurry vision and increased glare at night. It can be removed surgically using ultrasound energy or a laser. If you do not want to wear glasses after surgery, Dr. Anderson has extensive experience with new Symfony presbyopia/presbyopic correcting premium intraocular lens


Thinking about gaining independence from glasses and contacts? We offer a full range of customized vision solutions for hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism. We also offer the Visian® implantable collamer lenses (ICL) or phakic intraocular lens if you are not a candidate for LASIK. Our average all Bladeless LASIK price is $1500 per eye.

Corneal Transplant

Just as the lens is the most important part of a camera, the cornea is the most important structure in the eye. In corneal transplantation, a diseased or scarred cornea is replaced with a healthy one. Dr. Anderson performs all advanced corneal transplant techniques including PKP, DALK, DMEK, and DSEK.


Dr. Anderson specializes in managing all corneal disorders, including keratoconus. The progression of keratoconus can be effectively treated using a procedure called corneal crosslinking. Dr. Anderson is one of only several ophthalmologists in Denver that performs corneal crosslinking at a competitive price of $1000 per eye. Dr. Anderson will perform an evaluation and determine whether this treatment is right for you.

Dry Eyes

If you experience blurry vision, irritation, tearing, burning or redness, you may have dry eyes. Learn more about dry eyes and how Dr. Anderson can help.
