but who performs it.

He has been involved in Lasik surgery since 1999 and was the Medical Director and Lasik Surgeon at LasikPlus in Grand Rapids, which opened in 2006.

This procedure is designed to reudce or eliminate a person’s need for reading glasses.Both Dr. Keil and his wife have had laser vision correction done on their eyes. He says the procedure has greatly helped him do the things he loves, such as sailing, skiing, and swimming.
Dr. Keil and his wife have three boys, and various pets: a crayfish, fish, a guinea pig, and last but not least a parakeet named Mustard. In his free time, Dr. Keil enjoys hitting the trails with his mountain bike, staying active with his boys that are in Boy Scouts, camping, and spending his summer days on the water.
