Although blurry vision makes everyday life seem soft and romantic, it also means there’s a good chance you’ve just proposed to a tree. Sharpen your senses with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $1,899 for a standard LASIK or PRK surgical procedure for both eyes (a $4,000 value)<p>
After propping patients’ eyelids open with a small clamp, the doctor makes a small incision in the corneal tissue with a microkeratome blade and gently lifts back the resulting flap. A low-temperature beam of light then sculpts the cornea’s inner layers, honing visual acuity and focus. The doctor replaces the corneal tissue at the end of the procedure, allowing it to heal naturally. The entire procedure takes about 3 minutes, and many people are able to drive without a vision aid the next day. PRK is simply a different type of laser that is better suited for customers with thin or asymmetrically shaped corneas.
- $2,900 for bladeless IntraLase LASIK surgery for both eyes (a $5,800 value)<p>
Though almost identical to standard LASIK, an IntraLase procedure eschews the use of blades. The doctor gently beams the outer cornea with short pulses of infrared light measured to a precise location and depth, carving a precise flap. This procedure may improve night vision, which allows patients to find their way in the dark without having to leave the refrigerator door open all night. One’s candidacy for either procedure will be determined at a free initial consultation; those who do not qualify for the surgery will receive a refund of the Groupon price.
Diamond Vision’s quartet of doctors boasts extensive experience with LASIK’s CustomVue IntraLase eye-correction procedure—so extensive that they regularly teach it to other doctors. Each doctor has completed a long process of fellowship training, licensing, and certification to refurbish eyes suffering from varying degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Though controlled low-temperature lasers and fine blades are the main components of their medical toolkits, they also implement iris registration to customize procedures and measure tissue properties with devices such as an Ocular Response Analyzer and Oculus Pentacam camera.
Diamond Vision's fabled clientele includes a menagerie of celebrities such as Tiki Barber, Mickey Rourke, and Tito Nieves, the reigning king of salsa. Decades of research, development, and practice have refined LASIK's eye-mending technology, so customers can rest assured knowing a career in dart throwing or seeing around corners is not only possible, it's definitely possible.
