Dr. Kranemann’s is one of North America’s leading eye surgeons. He is:

  • the first surgeon in North America to offer ReLEx™ SMILE vision surgery (the third and latest generation of laser vision correction procedure)
  • the first surgeon in North America to offer Laser Blended Vision PRESBYOND vision surgery (a safe and effective method of compensating for presbyopia)
  • the first to offer PiXL a groundbreaking non-surgical option for people with mild prescriptions
  • The first surgeon to introduce laser light transepithelial crosslinking to treat keratoconus

When he sees you for your first appointment, Dr. Kranemann’s goal is to understand what you want from your vision. With this information, he will provide you with the most advanced vision correction assessment and treatment option available anywhere in the US and Canada to meet your lifestyle goals. How can we be sure it’s actually the “most advanced”?

Many people don’t realize that Canadian laser eye surgery providers can offer procedures not yet available in the US but tried and proven in the rest of the world. Dr. Kranemann leads the way with both SMILE and PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision, two procedures that even European surgeons consider leading edge.

Dr. Kranemann built his expertize on a solid foundation of academic excellence

After completing his education and training at the University of British Columbia, University of Toronto, and The Royal Manchester Eye Hospital, Dr. Kranemann completed a fellowship course in Refractive Surgery at the Institute for Refractive and Ophthalmic Surgery (IROC) in Zurich, Switzerland. Today, he is Board Certified in Ophthalmology in both Canada and the United States.

Dr. Kranemann regularly contributes his expertize to his peers and trainees

Dr. Kranemann lectures and presents papers and abstracts at international conferences like the Congress of American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons and the Congress of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.

He contributes to well-respected, international medical journals such as the American Journal of Ophthalmology and the Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery. He uses his years of experience and extensive skills to advance vision correction research (conducting several dry eye studies) and train the next generation of surgeons. He has a fellowship with the University of Toronto’s Division of Ophthalmology Vision Sciences. He is fellowship director for Glaucoma and Anterior Segment where he trains eye surgeons in Glaucoma management and treatment. Surgeons frequently visit him to observe him perform refractive surgery.

When not providing personalized vision correction to his patients or educating new physicians, Dr. Kranemann enjoys spending time with his wife and five children, gourmet cooking, art, and travel.

Maintaining Healthy Eyes as We Age

Maintaining healthy eyes as we age should be a priority, but most of us never think about getting older. Lots of us think we will never age, but “old man time” creeps up on us without making a sound. Suddenly you or your parents have become part of the senior generation. As you look in the mirror, well, you see that older version of yourself. When did THAT happen?
