In Western culture, eyelash-batting signals a desire for romance, innocence of an adorable crime, or the beginning of a staring joust. Send clear signals with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a comprehensive eye exam (a $129 value), a 10–12 week supply of Latisse eyelash medication (a $120 value), and a follow-up exam (a $75 value) at Derickson Vision Consultants (a $324 total value).
Latisse is a medication applied directly to the eyelashes; it works gradually to darken and lengthen the lashes, rather than brighten and shrink your head. When you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes return to their original appearance. Tangible results require multiple treatments and may appear as soon as eight weeks. Before writing prescriptions, Dr. Derickson gives eyes a full workup, starting with a review of eye and health history, then checking for vision-function issues. Retinoscopy and Computer Automated Refraction help puzzle out the best prescription for patients who require contacts or monocles, reducing endless comparisons between different lens strengths, before Dr. Derickson cases out the fronts of eyes and checks pressure. Clients can also bring shades for optional pupil dilations.
Latisse is an FDA-approved prescription drug that was developed to treat inadequate eyelash growth; be sure to carefully review the safety information on the Latisse website. If you have any history of eye-pressure problems or are using prescription drugs for lowering eye pressure, this treatment may not be right for you. If you have had eye surgery, glaucoma, or are pregnant, you should not purchase today's Groupon.
Derickson Vision Consultants
At Derickson Vision Consultants, complimentary snacks and refreshments greet visitors before Dr. Derickson—a board-certified optometric physician—and his compatriots utilize state-of-the-art equipment to examine eyes and ocular health. Taking the guesswork out of eye measurements, the staff avoids the continual barrage of "better or worse," questions and instead uses retinal-reflection refractive instruments to determine prescriptions. Meanwhile, kids can watch movies in an optical playhouse, and Dr. Derickson, also a certified aviation vision specialist and a private pilot himself, assists pilots with their vision difficulties and helps them avoid mistakenly landing on fashion-show runways.
