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 $2,495, you get LASIK eye surgery at Khanna Institute of LASIK in Beverly Hills (a $6,000 value).
Dr. Rajesh Khanna, named LA Daily News' Readers' Choice for Best LASIK Surgeon in 2009, has unveiled ideal vision for thousands of patients afflicted with astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. The outpatient LASIK procedure begins with a screening consult, which unearths vision problems buried within ocular orbs and explores lifestyle factors, including daily work habits, participation in sports, and time spent reading the fine print on bottles of Flintstones vitamins. Next, a preoperative exam employs Wavefront technology to capture a 3-D picture of the cornea that will serve as a map during the LASIK procedure. Topical anesthetic drops then numb and dilate ocular orbs before the procedure begins. An excimer laser reshapes the cornea, and the eye heals naturally from the procedure's incision without the use of stitches or tie-dyed eye casts. This Groupon also includes follow-up appointments and any necessary vision enhancements within a year of the surgery.
