Children who wear glasses endure wisecracks including “four-eyes” and “Einstein,” whereas those with perfect vision bask in compliments such as “two-eyes” and “Oppenheimer.” Sharpen your sight with today's Groupon: for $2,499, you get LASIK eye surgery for both eyes at Monnett Eye and Surgery Center in Sebastian (a $5,000 value).
Seasoned ophthalmologist Dr. Monnett employs nearly 30 years of refractive-surgery experience and an arsenal of advanced LASIK equipment to improve impaired vision and limit patients’ dependency on corrective lenses. After clients complete a registration form that details their current prescription strength and the date of their last good cry, Dr. Monnett conducts an initial consultation to ensure candidacy for the procedure. On the day of the surgery, peepers absorb a topical anesthetic to lessen sensation throughout the process, which lasts about 10 minutes per ocular orb. Wielding laser power from the Visx Star machine, Dr. Monnett folds a shallow flap away from the cornea and uses beams of light to reshape the eye into a perfectly carved Halloween pumpkin. The doctor then returns the flap to its original position and allows natural healing to occur. Results may vary depending on pre-LASIK conditions, and clients with surgery-related shakes can opt to witness the doctor at work prior to their own operation.
Though Monnett Eye and Surgery Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
