Schedule a Convenient Virtual Consultation

We understand it can be hard to take time off work and drive a few hours to find out whether you’re a good candidate for a vision correction procedure such as LASIK. At Kugler Vision in Omaha, we don’t want travel time to be a barrier. We are now offering virtual consultations with our doctors. This is a convenient and cost-effective way for you to speak with a laser vision correction specialist about your eye health history and discuss your visual needs and concerns, and for him to answer questions about potential vision correction solutions – all from the comfort of your home or office. A virtual consultation is not a replacement for an in-person EyeAnalysisTM, Kugler Vision’s Advanced Ocular Analysis, but many questions can be answered and information exchanged. The goal of the virtual consultation is to determine whether an in-person EyeAnalysisTM at Kugler Vision is worth your time and effort to travel to Omaha. For a limited time, to celebrate the launch of this new service, virtual consultations are being offered free of charge.  

During your virtual consultation, you will also speak with one of our patient care counselors about pricing and financing options. Your counselor will also go over the Remote Consult Program’s hotel partners, and help you schedule your procedure. Pre- and postoperative care will also be discussed.

Moving Forward: What Happens After a Virtual Consultation?

Day 1 in Omaha: Advanced Ocular Analysis and Possible Procedure

After your virtual consultation, if you are a candidate for a procedure such as LASIK and you have decided to proceed, our patient care counselor will schedule you for an EyeAnalysisTM at Kugler Vision. In most cases, your counselor will also reserve a slot on the procedure schedule for the same day, allowing you to have the procedure completed in one trip if it is confirmed that the procedure is right for you.

The EyeAnalysisTM will take place in the early morning, and will last about 60 minutes. Then you have the late morning and afternoon free to yourself. Our staff is happy to provide activity and dining recommendations if you’re looking for some suggestions for fun in Omaha.

If you are confirmed to be a good candidate after the EyeAnalysisTM, you will then be asked to come back to Kugler Vision in the late afternoon, around 3 p.m., for your vision correction procedure. Plan on an hour to 90 minutes of total in-office time. The actual procedure itself takes less than 10 minutes and the laser is only on your eye for just a few seconds, but we will want you to be here for pre- and postoperative care and preparation.

After the procedure, you will need a ride back to your hotel. We recommend you enjoy a nap and take it easy the rest of the day, and that you use drops as prescribed.

Day 2 in Omaha: Morning Postoperative Appointment

The following morning, you will return to Kugler Vision for your one day postoperative appointment. You will meet with Dr. Kugler who will examine your eyes, perform a vision check, and answer any questions.

Good morning!

I was interested in getting a general quote for pricing on lasik surgery. I’ve had a consultation at another office and was told I’m a great candidate but wanted to look around and compare pricing a bit before making a decision.
