When used for good, lasers can correct vision, but when used for evil, they can undermine superheroes during important PowerPoint presentations. Fight the villainy of poor eyesight with today’s Groupon: for $2,400, you get LASIK vision-correction surgery at CorrectVision Laser Institute, valid at locations in Weston for surgery and post-operation care and Pembroke Pines for post-operation care only (a $5,000 value).
Two top-notch optic oracles helm CorrectVision Laser Institute’s LASIK division: Dr. Marc Bosem, a 20-year eye-surgery veteran, and Dr. Barry Concool, who was lauded by LaserVision as one of the nation’s top five LASIK practitioners. The procedure can sharpen vision blurred by nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, diminishing patients’ dependence on glasses, contacts, or poets whose word-pictures describe whether the garage door is open or closed. After the doctor traces a tiny flap at the center of the eye, laser beams can gain access to the underlying tissue and vaporize the particles that fog vision. The 15-minute process requires only drop anesthesia, and patients remain awake throughout the surgery.
Doctors send clients home with eye drops and a protective mask to wear at night or during stage readings of Zorro. Although results vary from peeper to peeper, most patrons begin to see more crisply as early as one day after the procedure. Today's Groupon includes a pre-op consultation, the LASIK procedure, and one-day, one-week, one-month, and three-months post-op checkups.
THE PATIENT AND ANY OTHER PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT HAS A RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY, CANCEL PAYMENT, OR BE REIMBURSED FOR PAYMENT FOR ANY OTHER SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENT THAT IS PERFORMED AS A RESULT OF AND WITHIN 72 HOURS OF RESPONDING TO THE ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE FREE, DISCOUNTED FEE, OR REDUCED FEE SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENT.
Correctvision Laser Institute
Drs. Barry Concool and Marc Bosem helm the Correctvision Laser Institute and have performed more than 40,000 LASIK procedures combined. And though he is eager to help their patients cast off their glasses, contacts, and opera lorgnettes with LASIK, that's not all they do.
Teaming up with Dr. Michelle Gonzalez—the institute's Spanish-speaking clinical director and optometrist—they offer a wide range of corrective-vision procedures, such as cataract surgery and conductive keratoplasty, which uses radio frequency instead of lasers to improve farsightedness. They even smooth over wrinkles with Botox, dermal fillers, and spackling paste.
