Britt Buckley, MD (Retired)
Board Certified Ophthalmologist, LASIK-Refractive Surgeon (Retired)
Growing up in Wichita, Kansas, as the only boy with three sisters, Dr. Buckley became focused on sports and played four different sports in middle and high school. He refocused somewhat to academics after age 14 when he realized that he wanted to be a doctor.
He attended the University of Kansas for both undergraduate and medical school. He remained in Kansas City for a Flexible Medicine Internship at St. Luke’s Hospital. The next three years were spent in ophthalmology residency at Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, VA.
Upon graduation from residency in 1983, he and his wife moved to Colorado Springs and he was first employed at Colorado Springs Eye Clinic. Dr. Buckley set out on his own in pursuit of a new ophthalmology sub-specialty called refractive surgery in 1985. He trained from 1985-1988 with some of the early pioneers of both refractive surgery and cataract surgery including Leo Bores, Ralph Berkeley and Howard Gimbal.
Dr. Buckley founded Peak Vision Surgical Center in 1988 and moved to the current location on Union in 1992. He later founded Buckley Vision Institute in 2000 and was co-founder of 20/20 Institute in Denver in 2001. He has overseen many changes in the practice that has grown from a solo practice with two employees to an entity with ten doctors and nearly 50 employees in eight locations across Southern Colorado.
Dr. Buckley is married and has six grown children. His interests include golf, travel, fishing and cooking. He travels frequently to Baja, California, and has been known in recent years for chefing some mean Kansas City BBQ.
