What You'll Get
Although Superman shoots solar energy, not lasers, from his eyes, lasers can be used to fix many issues with sight, such as the inability to recognize the pointlessness of arcane Superman trivia. Regain your focus on important matters with today's Groupon: for $2,500, you get a LASIK eye-surgery procedure at Khanna Vision Institute's Westlake Village location (a $6,000 value).
Lead ophthalmologist and voluntary UCLA instructor Dr. Rajesh Khanna employs his seasoned experience and an arsenal of premier technology in every LASIK procedure, his skills earning him the title of Best LASIK Surgeon in 2009, as voted by readers of the Los Angeles Daily News . During the initial screening consultation and exam, Khanna diagnoses the particular refractive error and determines the necessary adjustment. If required, special Wavefront technology charts a three-dimensional map of the cornea, better preparing Khanna to navigate the eye's particular irregularities and rocky archipelagoes. Once in the operating room, a precise surgical instrument called a microkeratome creates a shallow flap in the cornea, which is then folded back to allow the laser to apply pulses of cool, ultraviolet, cornea-reshaping light. After replacing the flap, Khanna forgoes stitches, eye patches, and seeing-eye parrots in favor of the corneal tissue's natural healing process, which involves only a few days of recovery.
All in all, the LASIK procedure lasts about 15 minutes per eye, though this Groupon also covers follow-up appointments for a year after surgery, as well as any necessary follow-up enhancements, such as the ability to pop out one's eyes upon seeing sexy cartoon wolves.
