Kugler Vision Welcomes Past LASIK Patient As COO
Nathan Preheim Joins Kugler Vision As COO I, like many folks, had contemplated LASIK for quite awhile. I’ve known dozens of people who have had the procedure. All ranted and raved. Dr. Kugler has been a long term acquaintance. I know him. I trust him. I finally decided to do it in March. I’ll admit that I can be somewhat anxious. This, coming from a guy who doesn’t enjoy getting on an airplane. I wanted all of the LASIK benefits without having to experience the actual procedure. I went in for the pre-screen evaluation. Everyone I interfaced with was friendly…
LASIK Vision Correction Surgery: Easier Than It Sounds
Anything with the word ‘surgery’ in it is always a little scary, but modern vision correction is one of the safest, and most-often performed medical procedures in the world. In fact, vision corrective procedures have become so fine-tuned that less than 1% of patients experience any complications whatsoever. LASIK Technology The word LASIK actually refers to the technical process of procedure (reshaping the inner layer of the cornea with an excimer laser), and has been performed since the early 1990s. Since it’s inception, there have been many progressions in LASIK technology over the past couple decades that have dramatically improved…

Vitamins and Cataracts
Discovering why people age has been a scientific conundrum for hundreds of years. One of the most widely accepted theories is that an individual’s cells and DNA become bombarded with accumulated free-radicals, or atoms and molecules with a missing electron. Too many free radicals can pummel healthy cells causing them to be damaged and this may lead to accelerated aging. High doses of the vitamins and antioxidants found in natural fruits and vegetables, which are more readily accessible in supplements, are thought to prevent medical conditions associated with aging, including cataracts. Studying the Effects of Vitamins Preventing Cataract Development A…
The Cost of Cataracts
The Prevalence of Cataracts Cataracts are one of the reasons a person’s vision may begin to blur or become fuzzy. Small cataracts are hardly noticeable, but as more of them form in the eyes’ lenses, they can impair a person’s visual abilities significantly. It is estimated that in the US, 20.5 million adults aged 40 years or older are affected with cataracts. The percentage of people affected continues to climb as they age, with an estimated 50 percent of Americans who are 80 years or older having been diagnosed with cataracts. Comparing the Costs of Cataract Surgery Over the past…

LASIK Surgery helps quadriplegic communicate with his eyes
Dr. Lance Kugler preformed free LASIK on Deuce Smith, who can only communicate through his eyes with a computer. He uses the eye glaze system to communicate with the world due to a spinal cord trauma that has left him a quadriplegic. Deuce was having a hard time using his eye glaze system for communication because his glasses were so thick and no longer could track his eye movement. Thanks to Dr. Kugler and the team at Kugler Vision Deuce is now able to see with out glasses or contacts and continue to use this eye glaze system to communicate…
Dr. Kugler and Dr. Morgan publish new book: “Guide for Corneal Topography”
Corneal Topography is a method by which the shape, power, and health of a patient’s cornea (the outermost surface of the eye) is measured and analyzed. It is a very important skill and technique in the practice of refractive surgery. Through his education of ophthalmology residents, Dr. Kugler learned that the current available textbooks were not adequate in covering the most up-to-date topography technologies and interpretation models. He teamed with his colleague and mentor, Ming Wang, MD, PhD of Nashville, Tennessee, to create a new textbook to fill the void. With the help of Dr. Morgan, the book was completed…
