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 $1,999, you get LASIK vision correction on both eyes at Standard Optical in Holladay (a $3,998 value).
Since 1911, Standard Optical has performed more than 15,000 successful LASIK procedures under the trained eyes of their many Utah-licensed ophthalmologists and surgeons. FDA-approved LASIK boasts a host of benefits, including vision at 20/20 or better, improved cornea health, and the ability to enjoy 2-D movies without special glasses. Exams commence with an assessment of eye health before laser systems create detailed maps of the ocular terrain. During a procedure that lasts only a few seconds, the LASIK apparatus emit cool beams of focused light to reshape the curvature of the eye. Procedures conclude within a matter of seconds with little or no discomfort for the patient. Much like using a bottle of room-temperature milk as an air freshener, results may be noticed right away, and will increase over the span of several days. Today’s deal includes a free consultation to allay any treatment trepidations, and clients who are deemed unfit candidates for the procedure will be granted a full refund.
In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
