In nature, the only way for animals to achieve perfect vision is to crossbreed with an eagle, usually resulting in eagle-eyed abominations such as snakes with talons and flying pumas. Keeping human senses sharp is a less formidable task, as today’s Groupon proves: for $2,495, you get LASIK or PRK surgery on both eyes at LaserVue Orlando (a $5,000 value). A full refund will be given to patients who don't meet the criteria for either procedure.
LaserVue frees patients from cumbersome eyeglasses and contact lenses with LASIK or PRK surgery. Patients start with an initial corneal consultation and an in-depth eye exam that includes fundoscopy, refraction, and an SAT analogies section to make sure that LASIK or PRK is the right choice for their vision needs. Utilizing the delicate, modern Intralase iFS and Wavelight Allegretto Eye Tracking lasers, LaserVue's experienced surgeons can fix problematic peepers in procedures that last approximately 15 minutes. LASIK and PRK are similar surgeries—LASIK creates a corneal flap, and patients will experience a vision blurring or loss lasting about a minute. In PRK surgery, the laser is applied directly to the surface of the eye; no vision blurring occurs, but recovery time takes longer. Some initial haziness and irritation are generally experienced after the procedures, but like a methodical viewfinder, images sharpen within a few days.
