Claris Eye Care & Surgery was established in 2009. Keith Carlson, MD is founder and Medical Director. “Over the years, I have worked with the best people in the business. I am grateful for those opportunities,” says Dr. Carlson. “I feel that many aspects of patient care have been lost. With Claris, our team is uniquely focused on patient education, and the patient experience, to optimize their vision result.”
This means on-time visits; same-day appointments; advanced clinical technology for improved outcomes; and the use of electronic health records to support greater transparency, improved administration, and timely communication with patients.
We work with those who cannot afford proper eye care. “The people who can benefit from proper eye care often times do not receive it,” continues Dr. Carlson. “That is why we support programs that help serve the vision needs of all patients.”
One specific program supported by Claris is the Early Youth Eyecare (EYE) program operated by the Phillips Eye Institute. EYE provides free vision screening to thousands of public school children.
Claris also has an experienced administrative team committed to helping patients navigate the challenging world of insurance. Claris has contracted with a wide variety of insurance companies, and provides financing through two independent companies to assist with payment of high deductibles and non-covered services.
