What You'll Get
Imperfect vision results from hereditary predisposition or long afternoons spent staring at the fiery rays of a light saber. Harness the power of a more effective laser with today’s Groupon: for $2,500, you get LASIK surgery for both eyes at LasikPro (a $5,000 value). This Groupon is valid at LasikPro's locations in Charlottesville and Fredrick, Maryland.
With more than 20 years of ocular expertise, Dr. L. Edward Perraut has corrected more than 45,000 eyes and now uses the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser, one of the fastest and most precise lasers in the nation. The 15-minute procedure begins with eyes drifting into long lapses of relaxation courtesy of eye-drop anesthetics. Lenses then learn the error of their ways with minimal downtime, allowing most patients to return to avoiding eye contact with coworkers the next day. Imperfect visioneers should call ahead to schedule a one- to two-hour pre-op consultation to ensure peepers are a good candidate for LASIK. Groupon customers who are not candidates for LASIK will receive a full refund. The correction can fix nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism and reduce patient injuries resulting from altercations with eyeglasses, contacts, and sliding glass doors.

Dr. Edward Perraut hasn't just performed more than 50,000 LASIK surgeries, he's also undergone the laser-based procedure. This boosts the credibility of the Johns Hopkins fellow and his fellow doctors, who speak from experience when advising clients on the LASIK procedures. After leading a consult to confirm candidacy, the doctors schedule surgery, which begins with a small incision to open a flap over the corneal surface. Using a small-spot laser beam, WaveLight's Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser helps reforms the curvature of the cornea according to calibrations customized for each patient. The flap is then closed and begins resealing immediately, thanks to the eye's ability to heal quickly. The surgeons furnish patients with home-care instructions, as well as recommendations for follow-up appointments. A small percentage may need touch-up procedures, which are included if the patient is a viable candidate. An FAQ page anticipates common questions, such as, "will LASIK affect my x-ray vision?"
