Kugler Vision Offers Virtual Post-Op Care for Patients
Telemedicine and video chat technology are new, exciting, ways for our doctors and patients to communicate. At Kugler Vision, our team is proud to bring this transformational communication technology to our community in Omaha, Nebraska and beyond.
Our vision correction experts understand that leaving home, taking time off work, and travel time can be obstacles for busy people who want to work their post-operative care appointments into their schedules. At Kugler Vision, we don’t want these factors to be a barrier. Exciting and notable advancements in technology have made seeing a doctor as easy as picking up a cell phone.
Regardless of your location, the LASIK and laser cataract surgery experts at Kugler Vision in Omaha, NE are uniquely positioned to accommodate patients and ensure an all-around positive patient experience, which includes the option to conduct post-operative care remotely.
Studies have proven that virtual technology can positively impact post-operative care, routine clinical visits, and recent proactive health initiatives. Patient satisfaction is Kugler Vision’s mission and primary goal and with the implementation of telemedicine, we are able to offer increased accessibility and convenience for patients and doctors alike. This version of post-operative care is also a very cost-effective way for patients to speak with their doctor and maintain follow-up visits – all from the comfort of their home or office.
Kugler Vision uses telemedicine for scheduled follow-up visits, routine monitoring, and post-operative questions that may arise. Post-operative care using this advanced technology holds really positive potential, particularly during the current proactive health and safety measures many businesses are taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other illness– and to keep patients, Kugler Vision staff, and families safe during this time.
