The History of Our Practice
Alpine Eyecare & Eyewear opened its doors in July 2000 in Telluride, CO as a satellite office of Cortez Vision. Dr. Bill Mollenkopf was the original owner, he later sold the practice to Dr. Kimberly Parr in 2002. Dr. Sharpe joined the practice in 2012. As a Telluride resident it was a great fit to have a local eye doctor. She bought the Telluride office in 2013 which was separated from Cortez Vision to become an independent practice. Dr. Sharpe moved the office to its current location on Telluride’s historic main street on the sunny side of East Colorado Ave. We are happy to have expanded our space and services to better service serve the community.
