- $199 for $2,000 toward LASIK for both eyes
This Groupon only covers $2,000 of the procedure. The complete procedure for both eyes costs $5,000.
LASIK treatments can help address such visual deficiencies as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. After leading a consult to confirm candidacy, the doctors schedule surgery, which begins with the creation of a small flap on the corneal surface. A laser then reshapes the curvature of the cornea under the flap according to calibrations customized for each patient. Next, the flap is replaced and allowed to fuse to the rest of the cornea, which doesn’t require any stitches or sutures. Eyes typically heal well enough for patients to see after one day, and many procedures result in 20/20 or better vision.

Laser vision might be common in sci-fi novels, but laser-improved vision is the stuff of nonfiction. Just ask board certified ophthalmologist Dr. Ilan Cohen of Fifth Avenue Eye Center. He's conducted thousands of laser eye surgeries, or more specifically, LASIK surgeries. During these operations, he harnesses laser light to reshape corneas, often bringing patients' vision up to 20/20—an industry term that means being able to see up to 20 things at a time.
