Top-notch eye care is waiting for you. Schedule your eye exam appointment, be seen, and start seeing clearly… all in one day.

Our appointments in Pueblo include:

  • screening for eye health issues like glaucoma and cataracts
  • prescription checks for adults and kids
  • contact fittings
  • necessary emergency care

And since we’re located inside Eyemart Express, our eye doctor can get your new glasses often on the same day!

“Dr. Gowen did a great job making sure the contacts I ordered were the ones I wanted and made sure the prescription was right. He had to try a couple different contacts but in the end he spent the time necessary to make sure I was happy. I was in again this year and again Dr. Gowen did a great job. I like the fact he spends the time necessary to get it right.”

Our Values

We Care For You

Building trust is key to protecting and improving your eyesight. But it’s rare to find an optometrist with a long-term commitment to Southern Colorado.

At Joseph Gowen, O.D. & Associates, we believe you shouldn’t have to start from scratch every time you need to see an eye doctor.

You deserve accessible, affordable, and, above all, quality eye care with someone you can see again and again. That’s why we’ve been practicing in Pueblo since 2012, working alongside Eyemart Express to serve all your eyecare needs.

“I had a great experience with Dr. Gowen and his office. Staff was quick, the cost very reasonable, and got in to see the doctor fast. The exam was efficient and Dr. Gowen very personable. Best part was, I got two great pairs of glasses, and, having a couple special issues with my eyes, that good prescription means a lot to me. I’ve seen a few eye doctors in my time, and this experience was at the top. I would definitely go see Dr. Gowen for your eyecare needs.”


“My husband and I couldn’t have been more happy with the service, from calling and making appointments to getting glasses. We literally had appointments at 9 and had glasses on by 11! The doctor was thorough, but didn’t give us unnecessary procedures. Overall, very happy.”
