Wearing glasses can be inconvenient, especially when trying to put in your contacts. Enjoy a lens-free lifestyle with today's Groupon: for $1,895, you get LASIK surgery for both eyes at Feinerman Vision Center in Newport Beach (a $5,000 value).
Feinerman Vision Center's board-certified surgeon, Dr. Gregg Feinerman, fine-tunes eyesight with conventional and custom LASIK surgery. Dr. Feinerman, who completed his refractive surgery fellowship at the LASIK-specializing Gimbel Eye Centre, first examines ocular orbs to ensure they are good candidates for this corrective procedure, then reshapes imperfect or Epcot Center–shaped corneas using a Zyoptix laser. Dr. Feinerman also employs cutting-edge, FDA-approved Advanced Control Eyetracking technology to closely monitor eye movements during the procedure and adjust laser pulses accordingly for maximum accuracy. Recovery is usually quick—most patients notice improved vision right away—and eye irritation calms over the next few days. Patients may upgrade to a bladeless laser for an additional $1,000, which can allow some patients, such as those whose corneas are too thin for a traditional laser, to qualify for the procedure.
Though Feinerman Vision Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
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.
