Dr. Karen Heuer's Bio and Credentials

Dr. Karen Heuer is a board-certified, expert LASIK surgeon having performed over 38,000 laser vision correction procedures since 1996. She quickly became interested in laser vision correction soon after the FDA approval of the excimer lasers to perform the procedure, and her passion in the procedure has only grown with advancements in the field. She is known for her patient care and her patients are never surprised to learn she spent time working as a nurse prior to becoming a medical doctor.

Dr. Heuer is a graduate of the University of Colorado School of Medicine and holds a Bachelor of Science in Moelcular, Cellular and Developmental Biology. She is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology

Hailing originally from the Midwest, Dr. Heuer’s academic studies originally took her to the Colorado area, where she has spent some time raising her family and building her reputation as one of the nation’s leading LASIK doctors. As her daughters head off to college, Dr. Heuer is excited to reconnect with some family as she spends more time in the Twin Cities. Dr. Heuer is an avid runner and skier, and competitive athlete.
