He is former Program Chairman and member of the Board of Directors, as well as past President of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.

Dr. Kraff was instrumental in developing the Sanders-Retzlaff-Kraff (SRK) Formula, used worldwide to determine the correct power of an intraocular lens to be implanted in a patient’s eye during cataract surgery. Research studies performed by Dr. Kraff at the Institute have led to the widespread use of the ultraviolet filtering intraocular lens and technical advances in phacoemulsification (small incision cataract surgery). As a clinical investigator, Dr. Kraff helped pioneer VISX laser vision correction, the Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) for high myopia, and the Implantable Micro-Telescope for macular degeneration.
Twice named to “Best Doctors of America,” Dr. Kraff is the only cataract surgeon in Chicago to be distinguished for his outstanding contributions as one of the “Best 111 Ophthalmologists in America.” He is also named one of America’s Best Physicians in 2017 by the National Consumer Advisory Board. The award is based on evidence of superior training, experience, continuing education, commitment to excellence, and outstanding feedback from patients.
