- $2,500 for custom LASIK surgery for both eyes ($5,148 value)
Before the procedure, the doctor uses custom LASIK technology to draft a 3-D blueprint of both eyes and plan a highly individualized treatment. During the surgery itself, which lasts about 20 minutes, a fine blade called a microkeratome cuts a thin flap in the eye’s numbed surface, then a guided laser reshapes the cornea to sharpen vision.
This Groupon includes the initial consultation, a dry-eye treatment with punctal plugs and most post-operative drops, and one year of coverage for any necessary retreatment.

When Alive magazine publisher Elizabeth Tucker first thought about LASIK surgery as an alternative to the glasses she had worn since second grade, she didn't think it was an option. She feared the cost, worried about the time off work, and was unsure about how safe the procedure would be. Luckily, numerous friends told her about the transformative effects of their own procedures, and she finally decided to take the plunge at Crown Vision Center. There, a team of board-certified ophthalmologists, optometrists, and surgeons put Elizabeth and other patients at ease as they correct corneas with trained hands and cutting-edge equipment, boasting a 99% surgery-success rate. Elizabeth is now glasses-free and doesn't regret a thing. "It's been life-changing for me," she says in a video on the laser center's website, "I would recommend it to anyone."
