But at nighttime, it's not as easy for some, particularly those who suffer from disorders such as sleep apnea and respiratory insufficiencies. Home Respiratory Care, which has been in business for nearly 20 years, helps patients deal with these dangerous afflictions, providing them quality care and treatment. Home respiratory care has 90% adherence rate with their patient base compared to the less than 60% national average.

Dr. Shervin Alborzian helms the Eye Center of La Jolla, where laser-powered iLASIK surgery updates the original LASIK procedure to sharpen vision for 99% of patients. A pre-operation consultation ensures a patient’s candidacy for the procedure, with the typical iLASIK candidate donning glasses or contacts to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia, or seeing friends as hamburgers during periods of intense hunger. Dr. Alborzian then performs the surgery using only lasers, which boosts procedural safety. Boasting a 3-D mapping system, the now-bladeless surgery customizes itself to the layout and secret passageways ensconced in each pair of eyes. Afterwards, as research charts, 99% of patients achieve their intended level of correction. This Groupon also includes post-op visits one day, one week, six weeks, and six months after the surgery, and, if patients own a time machine, six hours before.
