Dr. Michael Keil, D.O.

It’s not just about where you have LASIK,
but who performs it.

Dr. Michael Keil • Lasik Surgeon

Meet Michael L. Keil, D.O., FAOCO

Keil Portrait

A resident of Grand Rapids, MI, Dr. Keil is a Board-Certified surgeon by the American Osteopathic Board of Ophthalmology, and is a Fellow of the American Osteopathic College of Ophthalmology. 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. Dr. Keil enjoyed it so much that in 2009 he bought the center, which is now Keil Lasik Vision Center.

With his long and highly successful career as a Lasik surgeon and having performed almost 10,000 surgeries, he is ranked as one of Michigan’s most experienced. As such, professionals such as firefighters, law-enforcement, doctors and media personalities have sought out Dr. Keil to perform their Lasik procedure.

In 2015 Dr. Keil became the first surgeon in the state of Michigan to perform the revolutionary Kamra™ corneal inlay procedure, for the treatment of presbyopia (near vision loss). This procedure is designed to reduce 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, camping, staying active with his boys that are in Boy Scouts and spending his summer days on the water.
