Although vision is just one of five senses, it’s the one that tells us when the light turns green and when bananas turn brown. Commemorate the colors of the world with today’s Groupon: for $2,700, you get either LASIK or LASEK/PRK laser eye surgery for both eyes at Pan Pacific Laser Vision Center (a $5,500 value).
Led by renowned eye surgeon Dr. Stephen S. Gee and Dr. William K. Wong Jr., Pan Pacific Laser Vision Center's accomplished ophthalmologists have performed more than 22,000 eye-upgrading procedures. Dr. Gee perfects peepers of all conditions and enlists LASIK blade-free IntraLase or LASEK/PRK laser technology to ensure that each procedure is tailored to clients' individual optic maladies. Over the course of 10–15 minutes, the minimally invasive procedure can correct a broad range of ocular ailments, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and fickle hindsight.
Some procedures produce 20/20 results, reducing or eliminating a patient's dependence on glasses, contact lenses, and awkward in-home security checkpoints. Most patients rebound from corneal refinement after one day and can then resume normal activities, such as driving a car or speed window-shopping. Full healing is usually complete within one to three months.
Pan Pacific Laser Vision Center
Pan Pacific Laser Vision Center was founded by one of the earliest practitioners of PRK laser treatments, Dr. Donald Johnson, who brought his pioneering no-touch PRK procedure from his native Canada to Hawaii in 1997. Over the next 15 years, the center's team of surgeons amassed more than 26,000 procedures, attracting patients from around the world, as well as surgeons looking to sharpen their own vision-correcting skills via the center's training program.
In keeping with the pioneering spirit of its founder, the center stays on the leading edge of vision-correcting technology, using Wave Front eye-mapping and employing an arsenal of laser equipment. With such tools, its doctors can perform procedures such as bladeless iLASIK, LASEK, and PRK, which is best for individuals with thin corneas.
