KATHY KELLEY



The O.D. eye doctors at our practice are an integral part of the care of our surgical patients. Dr. Kathleen Kelley works with patients before and after they undergo procedures such as LASIK, cataract surgery, and corneal transplant. She is a great asset to our team, and shares in our vision of superior patient care and optimal results.

Education and Experience

Dr. Kathleen Kelley is a 1987 graduate of the Indiana School of Optometry. She is experienced in examining patients both before and after the complicated surgeries performed by the surgeons of Price Vision Group. Having joined Dr. Price in 1992, Dr. Kelley has a wealth of experience in caring for complicated corneal transplant patients and laser refractive surgery patients.

She has served as a sub-investigator in numerous clinical trials and given many presentations on topics related to the outcomes of those investigations. She coordinated the clinical studies on artificial irises and the intraocular lenses for high levels of nearsightedness and is also the principal investigator for clinical studies on dry eye.

Dr. Kelley, The Person

Dr. Kelley enjoys spending time with her family. She rescued, and subsequently has spoiled, her two dogs, Max and Molly. She is an avid IU basketball fanatic!

The yearly (3 year post DMEK) visit I had today went very smooth. The front office staff was friendly and curious, the technician doing the pre-doctor checks was fantastic, very nice, efficient and friendly. Dr. Kelley was curtious, energetic, positive, and on time. It was a pleasure seeing the entire group today. Thank you very much for the wonderful experience.
