Physician and Former Navy Officer Helps a Cadet in Need

Dr. Gago with Kyle after surgery

For most people, Friday the 13th is an unlucky day.  For most people, that is, except ROTC cadet, Kyle Kausch of Ann ArborIn preparing for a career in aviation, Kausch knew he was in need of corrective eye surgery.  With a small window of opportunity before leaving to study abroad in Brisbane, Australia, Kausch had to act fast.  

On Thursday, January 12, he called SEI Eyecare & Laser Centers in Lansing, and explained his need for surgery as soon as possible.  A stroke of good luck, and teamwork, Kausch was in the next day for surgery with Dr. Luis Gago.  As a former officer in the Navy, Dr. Gago was happy to have the opportunity to help another serviceman.  However, the teamwork didn’t end there.  Staff at SEI worked and researched diligently, and was able to coordinate Kausch’s 3 month post-surgical visit with an Ophthalmologist in Australia.  Now, two weeks after his Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK), Kausch says he “has better than 20/20 vision in both eyes, and couldn’t be happier with the experience he had with SEI.”
