Humans typically rely on sight more than the other senses, which explains the popularity of movie-theater mute buttons and wearing oven mitts during pottery-making classes. Take care of precious peepers with today’s Groupon: for $2,500, you get LASIK refractive vision procedure for both eyes at Capital Eye Physicians & Surgeons, L.L.C. (a $5,500 value). This deal is only valid at their Bowie location.
Capital Eye and their highly qualified doctors have surmounted ocular obstacles for more than 25 years. LASIK, a refractive laser surgery used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, results in a high percentage of patients seeing the world with 20/20 vision or better and a low percentage of patients getting shrunk to the size of ants. Following an initial consultation to determine eligibility, the procedure employs lasers to reshape the corneal tissue, which affects the way light enters the eye. The process typically takes 15 to 30 minutes per eye, roughly the amount of time needed to blink "The Star Spangled Banner" in Morse code.
The overall LASIK treatment includes comprehensive care for your image organs, including pre-op and post-op consultations and assessments. While sight typically continues to improve and stabilize over the course of a few weeks, patients may notice improvements to their vision within a day’s time. Recovery time is usually short, allowing posthaste reentry into long-distance clock-reading contests and action-packed rounds of meaningfully staring into the distance. Consult Capital Eye’s FAQ page for advice on how to prepare for your evaluation.
Capital Eye Physicians & Surgeons
Dr. William L. Gonzalez and his son Dr. Mark Gonzalez helm Capital Eye Physicians & Surgeons, an ophthalmology practice where they correct vision, clear cataracts, and tame a variety of eye diseases. The elder Dr. Gonzalez brings decades of medical experience to his practice, has lectured around the world, and has trained gaggles of other doctors in eye-surgery techniques. To join his father's professional ranks, Dr. Mark Gonzalez completed his residency at the prestigious Georgetown University Hospital and Washington Hospital Center, and he brings skills he learned there to his refractive surgeries. Both clinic locations also boast a full-service eyeglasses boutique, where patients can choose from basic and designer frames, order contact lenses, or play frisbee with the latest monocles.:m]]
