Children who wear glasses endure wisecracks including “four-eyes” and “Einstein,” while those with perfect vision bask in compliments such as “two-eyes” and “Oppenheimer.” Sharpen your sight with today's Groupon: for $2,500, you get LASIK eye surgery for both eyes and one year of postprocedure visits at Shady Grove Ophthalmology in Rockville (a $5,000 value).
The vision gurus at Shady Grove Ophthalmology, the official ophthalmologist for the Washington Redskins, deftly reshape corneas with precise excimer-laser beams, which improve nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The doctor first evaluates patients to ensure that they are appropriate candidates for the LASIK procedure and the presidency of area science-fiction book clubs. The operation, which takes only minutes to complete, may restore vision to 20/20 or better, allowing patients to eschew glasses, contacts, and prescription periscopes. Vision sometimes improves within minutes after the treatment, and recovery time is minimal, allowing patients to return to work or classes the next day. For one year after treatment, prescription-free peepers receive postoperation follow-up visits and any necessary adjustments.
