Dear Tamara, the bladeless procedures are usually necessary when the person's prescription is higher than average, or the cornea is too thin. That being said, the blade-based procedure would be for people with either very very thick corneas, or moderate prescription, or both. As we must all comply with FDA regulations those parameters would be determined on the day of the conultation, but as you are curious, those would be the disqualifiers for the blade-based procedure. If you do qualify, the groupon covers all pre and post-op care + the blade-based procedure.
