$299 for $1,000 Toward LASIK Surgery Plus an Eye Exam
This Groupon includes a candidacy exam, unlimited follow-up visits within 12 months of the surgery, lifetime enhancements as needed, and $1,000 toward LASIK eye surgery, which typically costs $2,690 for both eyes. Dr. Whiting uses the Allegretto Wave and Technolas iris-recognition active-tracker laser technology. During the nearly painless surgery, a flap is created in the eye before a computer-guided laser reshapes the cornea in about 60 seconds. The result is typically a dramatic improvement in conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Recovery is 90% complete within 24 hours—beginning with a 4- to 6-hour period of keeping the eyes shut—and 99% of patients can pass a driving test without corrective lenses 24 hours after the surgery.

Whiting Clinic LASIK + Eye Care
If practice makes perfect, David Whiting, MD, must be approaching that standard: he has performed more than 100,000 LASIK eye surgeries in his career. While racking up those impressive stats, the board-certified ophthalmologist has held medical-director positions at institutions including LasikPlus and Joffe MediCenter. At Whiting Clinic LASIK + Eye Care, Dr. Whiting and Dr. Krassin make use of both extensive experience and advanced technology to perform treatments including LASIK eye surgery, cataract procedures, and lens implants to treat severe nearsightedness or just allow for useful backup eyes. Patients get to experience the fun side as well as the medical side of the intricate equipment: during their visit, they'll interface with iPad systems and select their own music to listen to. The clinic itself was built to Dr. Whiting's own specifications, including eco-friendly construction methods, sweeping glass walls that light up with changing colors at night, and nature-inspired artwork that allows patients to revel in their renewed vision.
