OMAHA — Refractive procedures like LASIK are more popular than ever, but only a few new refractive surgeons are trained in the U.S. each year. A national program for young physicians addresses this growing need for trained surgeons by providing valuable opportunities to gain experience in the field of ophthalmology — and Kugler Vision of Omaha, Nebraska is a proud participant.

Kugler Vision is thrilled to introduce a new member of its team, Drew Dickson, MD, who will be joining the top refractive surgery center in the Heartland.
