Medusa’s gaze could turn men to stone, but with the proper eye surgery she could’ve turned them into something more practical, such as gasoline or pizza bagels. Bring priorities into focus with today's Groupon: for $2,020, you get full LASIK surgery on both eyes, including the initial consultation, surgery, postsurgery massage, and post-op visits for six months at Robbins Eye Center in Bridgeport (a $6,100 value).
Robbins Eye Care expertly abets ocular requests under the care of Dr. Kim Robbins, a LASIK veteran with nearly 8,000 surgeries to her credit. After an initial consultation, Dr. Robbins offers assistance every step of the way, beginning with a LASIK care plan tailored to each patient's individual needs. Armed with the Allegretto laser, the latest in LASIK technology, Dr. Robbins duels a cockeyed coterie of eye-impairing ailments including astigmatism, farsightedness, myopia, and kaleidoscope vision. Not one to be technologically topped, Robbins has one of the only operating rooms in the Tri-State area to wield this wavelight laser.
The procedure rarely lasts more than 15 seconds, and post-op peepers are graced with the sight of Robbins’ on-site massage therapist, who eschews newfangled finger-beams to calm nerves the old-fashioned way. Today's Groupon is also good for six months of post-op visits at Robbins’ recently renovated facility, which boasts a nationally certified ambulatory surgery center, laser suite, and full-service optical shop that fills prescriptions as patients wait in the adjacent reception room.
