A Case Study in Lead-Generating, Digital Marketing Success

Recent Posts




Kremer Eye Center is a prominent refractive/cataract surgery practice with locations in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey.

For more than 15 years Kremer Eye Center has been listed in CEATUS-owned, lead-generating consumer education portals, notably Better Vision Guide (BVG).


Although a prominent practice, Kremer Eye was experiencing a decline in LASIK patients and surgeries. They needed help leveraging their online market share to attract more LASIK patients. Further, they knew they needed to expand their Digital footprint, including Reviews to achieve practice growth.


CEATUS analyzed Kremer Eye Center’s objectives and determined that Profile Listings in the CEATUS-owned educational consumer portal Better Vision Guide would be helpful. As it turned out, using this strategy was an immediate success!

The Center began with listings in the CEATUS LASIK directories. So, because they experienced Digital Marketing and practice growth success with these listings, they then expanded into the CEATUS Cataract Directories – also with amazing results.

CEATUS’ continued to leverage the latest digital strategies by adding positive patient reviews to the Center’s listings in both directories — this has allowed Kremer Eye to take over more real estate on the first page of Google, gaining even more market share!

Why are the CEATUS directories so effective? Prospective patients trust third-party validation from consumer education websites such as Better Vision Guide, as well as from platforms such as Yelp and Google — online reviews are the new word-of-mouth.


As a result of CEATUS’ efforts, Kremer Eye Center was able to magnify their overall brand and strengthen their online footprint. Their listings in the LASIK and Cataract Directories in Better Vision Guide enabled them to be seen multiple times on the first page of Google.  This provided instant visibility to thousands of prospective patients who might not otherwise have heard about them. Moreover, it improved the Center’s SEO, as Google uses online “citations” (reviews) as a ranking signal. The Center’s results over the last 12 months are impressive.  Their successes include: 20,068 website impressions989 visitors to their directory pages48 visitors went on to their website and in addition, they received 80+ new patient leads (calls + emails)!
