$1,999 for Custom Wavefront LASIK Surgery for Both Eyes (Up to $2,590 Value)
The treatment begins with a complimentary eye exam to confirm candidacy. Patients then undergo custom wavefront LASIK surgery under the care of experienced ophthalmologist Dr. Kevin Merkley, who has performed more than 20,000 LASIK procedures.
Founded by Dr. Stephen Joffe and Craig Joffe, a father-and-son team who used LASIK eye surgery to correct their own vision, Joffe MediCenter has five locations across the country where expert ophthalmologists use advanced diagnostics to conduct each custom wavefront LASIK surgery. Treatment begins with a free, noninvasive examination with Bausch & Lomb Orbscan and Zywave mapping systems—derived from technology developed for astronomy and physics applications. They generate a 3-D model of each eye, which, like a fingerprint or favorite line from The Princess Bride, is unique to each person.
Upon assessing the results to confirm LASIK candidacy, doctors schedule an in-office surgery. During the procedure, a microkeratome cuts a tiny flap in the cornea of the affected eye and lets the laser beam vaporize tissue standing in the way of 20/20 vision, reducing eyes' dependence on glasses and contacts regardless of whether clients suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. In most cases, patients can take their revamped vision out of the operating room in about 20 minutes. After the procedure, doctors schedule a postoperative exam.
