- $100 for $1,200 toward Lasik eye surgery for both eyes
LASIK treatments can help address such visual deficiencies as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. After leading a consult to confirm candidacy, the doctors schedule surgery, which begins with the creation of a small flap on the corneal surface. A laser then reshapes the curvature of the cornea under the flap according to calibrations customized for each patient. Next, the flap is replaced and allowed to self-seal to the rest of the cornea, which doesn’t require any stitches or sutures. Eyes typically heal well enough for patients to see after one day, and many procedures result in 20/20 or better vision.
The Katzen Eye Care & Laser Center
LASIK surgeon Dr. Lawrence Katzen is the reason America's Most Wanted doesn't have a bespectacled host. He performed a successful LASIK surgery on the show's host, John Walsh—and it's just one of the myriad LASIK procedures he's conducted since 1996. Today, he's one of its most veteran practitioners, correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism for tens of thousands of happy patients, The Katzen Eye Care & Laser Center. Here, he leads a team of six doctors who perform LASIK surgeries, remove cataracts, and conduct lens implants, but have not figured out how to grant x-ray vision, yet.
