Dr. Richheimer fell in love with Colorado during his residency at Denver's St. Joseph's hospital. After leaving to complete his training at world-renowned eye centers, Dr. Richheimer returned to Colorado. In 2008, he realized his dream of creating his own leading-edge vision care practice, Mile High Eye Institute.

As a leader in ophthalmology, Dr. Richheimer was the first fellow in the United States to be fully certified in the Staar Implantable Contact Lens, the first U.S. surgeon to perform ultra-thin DESK, and one of only a few local surgeons who performs corneal cross-linking. Dr. Richheimer further stays on the forefront of cataract surgery, providing the most advanced techniques and all options for lens implant technology.

Dr. Richheimer enjoys giving back to the community through teaching and volunteering. On numerous occasions, he has provided surgical care in underserved countries. In his spare time, he relishes adventures with his family, as well as working towards his goal of becoming an iron-distance triathlete.
