During LASIK surgery, one of Crown Laser Center's expert technicians tenderly reconfigures the cornea using a cutting-edge laser-based system, yielding 20/20 vision for many recipients. By correcting abnormal curvatures on the eye's surface, patients can relieve conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and ocular detachment during comedic moments of surprise. During one approximately 18-minute session, a seasoned LASIK surgeon uses a precise mechanical instrument to gingerly lift a hair-thin section of the corneal surface before masterfully sculpting the cell layers beneath with laser light. Ocular spheroids receive collagen plugs and eye drops so that tear ducts can continue making tears every time their owners remember that Pluto is no longer a planet. Clients also lay claim to one year's worth of coverage for prescription retreatment.
Upon scheduling their appointment, patients also make reservations for a one-night stay in a standard room at the Drury Inn & Suites. A smattering of drinks and hot food, such as nachos and baked potatoes, revs up appetites during the hotel’s complimentary 5:30 Kickback, and a free hot breakfast teems with eggs and make-your-own belgian waffles. Guests can brandish a $40 local restaurant gift card to yield classic American pub fare and the excitement of finally being able to see the intricate sesame-seed patterns on every hamburger bun.

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."
