Do you think you need treatment again?
  • Before we bring you in for an enhancement evaluation, take a look at the two steps below to start the process. Once these two step are completed, we will bring you in for a full dilated evaluation with Dr. Keil. The appointment will take two hours and the fee is $250.

 

Vision For Life Patient Guide
1. Is Your Vision Stable?
To confirm that your vision is stable, you want to have your last two years of eye exams faxed to our office for Dr. Keil to review. If you have not had an eye exam in the last two years, scheduling one with your local optometrist would be your first step. Once your records are received our staff will give them to Dr. Keil for review. After it is reviewed, one of our staff members will contact you.

 

Why? Good question! In order to make sure we do not over or under correct you your prescription, we need to make sure your prescription is stable.

2. Are you dependent on glasses again?
It’s typically not recommended to proceed with a Lasik enhancement until you are back in glasses the majority of your day.
