Kevin H. Cuevas, M.D.
Born and raised in Northern California, Dr. Kevin H. Cuevas earned his medical degree from the University of Southern California School of Medicine. As a medical student at USC, Dr. Cuevas participated in research at the Doheney Eye Institute where he was involved in the emerging technology of excimer laser corneal refractive surgery. He completed his ophthalmology residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas before attending a fellowship in Cornea and External Disease at the University of Iowa in 1997.
In 2002, Dr. Cuevas founded Rocky Mountain Ophthalmology and became a valued consultative resource for the ophthalmic community in Colorado. His interests in cornea, external disease, and refractive surgery were complemented by his earlier research interests. Dr. Cuevas is considered by his peers as a leader in cataract and refractive surgery. He has embraced cutting-edge intraocular lens technologies and ranks among the top surgeons for implantation of presbyopia-correcting and toric intraocular lenses. Dr. Cuevas has published peer reviewed articles and continues to lecture locally and nationally. Dr. Cuevas is board certified by The American Academy of Ophthalmology, and is a member of numerous professional ophthalmology and medical societies contributing his time, expertise, perspective and support in a myriad of ways.
As a surgeon, Dr. Cuevas enjoys working with his hands. In his spare time, Dr. Cuevas uses those same skills to tie flies for his fly fishing adventures. An avid fly fisher since his early teens in California, Dr. Cuevas has fly fished worldwide in search of various freshwater and saltwater species. He is particularly passionate about fly fishing for steelhead in the Pacific Northwest, as well as chasing large roosterfish off the coast of Baja Mexico.
