PRK Consultation

On the day of the initial consult, you should plan on being in our office for about an hour. During this time, we will perform a series of measurements including: a diagnostic analysis of the front surface of the eye, measuring corneal thickness, and checking vision. Dr. Kraff will examine your eyes and look at the measurements to let you know if you are a candidate for refractive surgery. One of our refractive counselors will go over the qualifying procedure in detail and answer any questions you might have regarding the surgery. The refractive counselor will discuss scheduling and finance options.

Should you decide to move forward with surgery, you will need to come back for a pre-operative exam. At the pre-op exam, you will have in-depth measurements performed to help Dr. Kraff calculate your exact refractive treatment. The refractive counselor will let contact lens wearers know the specified period to be out of lenses prior to the pre-op and surgery.

If you would like to know more about refractive surgery and if you are a candidate please schedule a complimentary consultation by calling (312) 444-1111 or use our Vision Correction Consultation form.

Out of great caution and concern over the coronavirus, we have decided to close Kraff Eye Institute end of business March 17th. We will evaluate weekly to determine if we should continue with our closure. As of March 30th, we anticipate being closed until April 10th. We will adjust this message accordingly should that date change. We care too much about the health of our patients and staff to increase any of the “community spread” of COVID-19. The decision was made after many discussions with peers, local and national medical communities, as well as heeding the advice of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) about the severity of the issue.

Our phones will be operational for communication with you our patients. Please continue to call Kraff Eye Institute 312-444-1111. You can contact the office via the patient portal or standard email at info@kraffeye.com. Our office hours will be Monday through Friday 9:00am-4:00pm.

We are available to reschedule current appointments and setting up future visits.
The staff will triage questions and prescription refill requests. Please contact the office directly for this.
Contact lens orders will be placed if requested for direct ship to your home. If you are due for your exam, we can extend your prescription until COVID-19 passes. If you need to pick up contacts from our office, please call to arrange at 312-444-1111.

Please also note if we have not yet connected with you to reschedule your appointment for the next two weeks our staff will do so in the next few days. We apologize for any delay as there are many patients to contact currently.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Kraff Eye Institute looks forward to resuming business as usual as soon as possible.

Stay healthy!
