What You'll Get
As anyone who has accidentally called a boss "mom" knows, being able to tell who's who is vital to the preservation of dignity. Put life into focus with today's Groupon: for $1,895, you get LASIK eye surgery at Global Eye and Laser Center (a $4,000 value) in Huntington Beach.
The board-certified cornea and refractive surgery specialists at Global Eye and Laser Center established their company in 2001 to educate potential LASIK patients on available options to eliminate or reduce the need for contacts or glasses. After conducting a one-hour consultation to ensure that patients' peepers are prime candidates, doctors begin the LASIK procedure by administering anesthetic eye drops to prevent pain, discomfort, and blinking in Morse Code. Next vision-enhancing virtuosos will peel back a thin flap of cornea and reshape optical orbs with an excimer laser, painlessly correcting the vision of nearsighted, farsighted, and astigmatism-afflicted individuals. Finally, eye-sculptors fold the cornea flap back into place and smooth it over the eye like a film cover on a new phone.
Vision dramatically improves during the first few days following the surgery. To ensure a smooth, mishap-free recovery, patients should avoid strenuous activities such as staring into the sun or batting eyelashes repetitively during speed-dating sessions. Groupon-holders also receive post-op treatment for up to a year.
