Bobsledders invented LASIK surgery after unwieldy glasses kept interfering with aerodynamics and getting them caught in low-hanging tree branches. Make your face friction-free with today’s Groupon: for $2,100, you get an initial consultation, exam, LASIK surgery on both eyes, and all subsequent follow-ups for one year at Feinerman Vision Center in Newport Beach (a $5,000 value). Redemption is subject to the doctor's approval after the initial consultation.
As a board-certified LASIK surgeon, Dr. Feinerman begins each optical renovation with an in-depth consultation that includes a series of examinations to determine candidacy and the best course of action. During surgery, patients recline while Dr. Feinerman applies a topical anesthetic to the eyes and accesses the cornea by clicking his heels three times. Next, he aims the Zyoptix laser to target vision problems such as astigmatism. After the procedure, medicated eye drops aid the healing process, preventing the need to perform rhyming incantations in your local mystical forest. Discomfort is minimal, and many patients report better vision by the next day. Touch-ups, if needed, are included with this Groupon for one year after the date of the procedure.
Before the appointment, curious clients and monkeys can take Dr. Feinerman's LASIK self-evaluation test. While all-laser LASIK is unnecessary for most patients, Dr. Feinerman may require those with high prescriptions or thin corneas to undergo an all-laser procedure, which costs an additional $1,000.
Feinerman Vision Center
For those wondering whether or not they need vision-correction surgery, the staff at Feinerman Vision Center has developed an online quiz as the first step in a comprehensive consultation process. After answering a series of questions—such as “Would your career activities improve if you were to be less dependent on glasses?” and “Are you sure your glasses wouldn’t be jealous?”—prospective patients are told what vision-correction techniques might be best for them.
Of course, no surgery takes place until board-certified surgeon Dr. Gregg Feinerman confirms the quiz’s notions during a follow-up consultation. Dr. Feinerman specializes in both LASIK and cataract surgery. He uses high-tech equipment to sharpen eyesight, including a blade-free LASIK procedure that relies solely on lasers to reshape the cornea. During Crystalens surgery, a different type of vision-correcting treatment, he replaces the eye’s natural lens with a new, flexible one. Many of his treatment methods, which also include custom cataract surgery, take about 15 minutes to complete and incur little downtime.
