Since Kalon Medical Spa is inside the Vance Thompson Vision practice, clients often wonder how advanced eye surgery, facial filler, and skin treatments could possibly be related to each other.
The connection may puzzle those outside the eye care and ophthalmology industries. However, this common pairing across the nation stems from a natural intersection in the two spaces. Our doctors’ expertise and patient requests in the eye care space for aesthetic treatments come together to create an opportunity for special care, the Kalon way. There’s a more technical reason, too: the technology and lasers used in vision correction procedures are much like those used in skin-rejuvenating treatments.
For any of Kalon’s services, knowing the anatomy of the face and eye area is so important for achieving optimized, beautiful results. And who knows the delicate structure around the eye better than an ophthalmologist? That’s why we draw from the expertise of Vance Thompson Vision surgeon Dr. Zac Keenum, who is trained in cosmetic and plastic surgery specifically around the eyes, like blepharoplasty (repositioning droopy lids) or surgical brow lifts.
“As doctors, we’re trusted with our patients’ well-being,” Dr. Keenum said. “They are not only looking for expert vision care, they are also asking about fixing a droopy eyelid or making their eyes look lifted and awake. I love working with aesthetic patients to make those desires a reality for them.”

Truly, oculoplastic surgery is a broad discipline that specializes in the anatomy and physiology of the eyes, lids, and middle of the face — not just the inner workings of the eyeball but the whole outer area as well! Doctors at Vance Thompson Vision, including Dr. Keenum, are experts in caring for the delicate skin around the eyes, especially during surgical procedures.
Vance Thompson Vision always takes a patient-centered approach to care. This mission makes it the obvious choice to support patients’ goals for both quality vision and a confident outer glow. All the while, the teams at both the eye care and aesthetic sides of the practice provide friendly, competent services using their range of knowledge and skill.
