Here’s our interview with Dr. Jill M. Bert of Lakefront Eye Care, which is new to Edgewater. Lakefront Eye Care is located at 1931 Sheridan Blvd, Set S, which is in Edgewater Marketplace just north of Target.
How did you get involved in the business?
I was born with a passion for people and an undeniable entrepreneurial spirit. I knew all along I wanted to be in a profession where I could work with people and help improve their lives. Becoming a doctor of optometry allowed my perfect scenario where I could create lasting relationships with patients in a caring environment that I could create and grow.
What drew you to open a business in Edgewater?
Lakefront Eye Care has always been a dream of mine and the search for its location was extensive. I moved from Chicago in 2014 and searched many areas around Denver before finding the perfect place. Edgewater is a fascinating tiny city surrounded by giants, Denver and Lakewood. It’s location is ideal with its vicinity to both downtown Denver as well as to the mountains. I wanted my new practice to be able to serve a close, tight knit community. The small town feel and picturesque Sloan’s Lake makes the Edgewater community the perfect fit. I am proud and excited to be the first optometric practice in Edgewater.
What services/products do you offer?
Lakefront Eye Care will be a state of the art optometry clinic offering the latest technology for comprehensive eye health and vision examinations along with personalized contact lens fittings and dry eye management. The optical area will carry designer frames along with unique styles that can’t be found elsewhere. I take a holistic approach to eye and health care. I provide a thorough eye examination as well as spend time with each patient to ensure they are achieving the best and most functionally efficient vision possible. I assess the health of the eyes and how it is connected and related to each patient’s overall health. I take a special interest in nutrition and how it affects the eyes and body. I love providing pediatric eye care and I participate in the “Infant See” program providing eye exams at no cost to infants under one year of age. My specialties include nutraceuticals, pediatrics, ocular disease and corneal disease including the fitting of specialty contact lenses and myopia control.
What makes your business unique?
We offer services and products that other optometry offices in Denver and Lakewood do not. I am experienced in fitting specialty contact lenses including a unique type of contact lens called CRT (corneal refracting therapy). These are contact lenses worn during sleep that can provide crisp, lens-free daytime vision for people of all ages. Lakefront Eye Care has a strong mission and vision. We are committed to providing the highest standard of holistic health care with personalized service in a friendly and caring atmosphere. We offer quality products so our patients achieve their very best vision. We work to improve quality of life and overall health through education, prevention, and early detection. We inspire confidence by utilizing state of the art technology and commit to life-long learning through continued education to remain at the forefront of our profession. We are committed serving our patients and our community while establishing a lasting relationship with you, your family and the neighborhood of Edgewater.
