Cutting-Edge Technology

At Powers Eye Center we care about the health of your eyes. Early detection of eye diseases is the best way to keep your eyes seeing clearly for years to come. We have equipped our office with the latest advanced digital testing technology and retinal imaging to help detect eye disease early and provide you with the best vision possible. Our comprehensive eye exams at Powers Eye Center are affordable and include advanced digital wavefront refraction, glaucoma screening, visual field testing and basic digital retinal photos at no extra charge. Advanced Optos wide field digital retinal imaging is also available.

At Powers Eye Center, we offer advanced contact lens fittings with the latest technology. For decades, eye doctors have used and in some offices still use a device called a keratometer to measure corneal curvature in two places on the eye. We routinely perform corneal topography on contact lens patients to help you get the best fit possible. Our corneal topographer measures curvature at up to 22,000 locations, much more fully detecting eye shape for contact lens fitting, detection of irregular astigmatism, detection of eye disease and detection of refractive surgery complications. We also specialize hard to fit lenses and scleral lenses.

Neil McAllister


Providing general eye care, eye examinations for glasses, contact lenses, disease detection and management.
Neil McAllister, OD, completed his optometric training at Southern California College of Optometry in 1988. He began his career by working in a full service ophthalmology clinic which gave him valuable experience with eye disease diagnosis and treatment. He also worked for two years in a pediatric ophthalmology clinic.

For the past twenty years he was lead doctor in a busy corporate multi doctor optometry practice setting in Colorado Springs providing second tier doctor services for difficult cases as well as regular patient care. He left that setting to bring his expertise to private practice. He practices general optometry with a special interest in contact lens fitting, including advanced contact lens fitting for special cases.

Dr. McAllister also specializes in eye disease detection and management using cutting edge instrumentation, and co-management of cataract and lasik surgery patients and retinal disease with Colorado’s finest ophthalmologists.

Dr. McAllister believes it is necessary for a doctor to have advanced equipment to obtain advanced results and has equipped his office accordingly with onsite intraretinal optical coherence tomography, wide field retinal scanning, corneal topography mapping and other advanced diagnostic tools.
