Although vision is just one of five senses, it’s the one that tells us when the light turns green and when bananas turn brown. Commemorate the colors of the world with this Groupon
$2,700 for LASIK or PRK Surgery for Both Eyes (Up to $5,500 Value)
Blade-free IntraLase procedures correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism with a computer-guided laser. During the 10- to 15-minute LASIK procedure, a microkeratome creates and folds back a corneal flap, allowing an excimer laser to reshape the cornea. The surgeon then replaces the corneal flap, which re-bonds with the rest of the cornea on its own without sutures. This procedure yields virtually no discomfort, and patients can typically see well enough to drive the day after the procedure.
PRK uses the same blade-free laser techniques, though recovery time can be longer. PRK is often an option for patients whose corneas are too thin for the LASIK procedure.
Though Pan Pacific Laser Vision Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Pan Pacific Laser Vision Center
Pan Pacific Laser Vision Center was founded by one of the earliest practitioners of PRK laser treatments, Dr. Donald Johnson, who brought his pioneering no-touch PRK procedure from his native Canada to Hawaii in 1997. Over the next 15 years, the center's team of surgeons amassed more than 26,000 procedures, attracting patients from around the world, as well as surgeons looking to sharpen their own vision-correcting skills via the center's training program.
In keeping with the pioneering spirit of its founder, the center stays on the leading edge of vision-correcting technology, using Wave Front eye-mapping and employing an arsenal of laser equipment. With such tools, its doctors can perform procedures such as bladeless iLASIK, LASEK, and PRK, which is best for individuals with thin corneas.
