A movie character who removes her glasses can transform from a nerd to a homecoming queen, or from a girl who wears glasses into one who might still wear them at night. Reinvent yourself with this Groupon.
$2,500 for Laser Vision-Correction Surgery ($5,000 Value)
This deal is valid for either an all-laser LASIK or PRK treatment on both eyes. During both procedures, precise lasers correct refractive errors with a 10- to 15-minute surgery followed by minimal downtime, aiming to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia, as well as boost hindsight beyond 20/20. Unlike LASIK, photorefractive keratectomy—or PRK—removes the eyes' epithelial tissue, which is then allowed to grow back. Procedures include one year of follow-up visits, in which doctors supervise the healing of the eyes and describe ways to repurpose old glasses into fashionable earrings. A thorough consultation and exam determine candidacy for surgery; those who do not qualify will receive a full refund.
Global Laser Vision
Football fans owe a thank-you to Dr. Farzad Yaghouti. The doctor's LASIK expertise made it possible for linebacker Shaun Phillips to achieve 20/15 vision, energizing the athlete’s NFL career for the foreseeable future. Dr. Yaghouti, Global Laser Vision's medical director, has performed more than 60,000 LASIK operations and lectured on the procedure at national conferences and on Fox 6 News’s [San Diego Living].
The doctors at Global Laser Vision meet with patients for preliminary exams during which they discuss the pros and cons of treatments and perform numerous tests and measurements. Global Laser Vision also works to treat cataracts, and removes growths from eyes using surgical methods far more effective than simply blinking really fast.
