Despite the success of lasers in the fields of ophthalmology, dermatology, and dentistry, they’ll never live down the time they blew up the moon. Take part in lasers’ prouder moments with today’s Groupon: for $100, you get $1,500 toward LASIK surgery for both eyes at Yankelove Cataract and Lasik Center. Today’s Groupon nets patients $1,500 off the cost of the full treatment, which typically costs $4,500 at the sight-enhancing center.
Dr. Samuel Yankelove of the aptly named Yankelove Cataract and Lasik Center brings more than 30 years of ocular repairmanship to the chair, fine-tuning unfocused eyeballs with blade-free LASIK treatments. Employing advanced VISX Star S4 equipment, the talented ocular doc targets misshapen corneas to alleviate such optic ailments as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and foggy hindsight. The laser’s cool light beam breaks molecular bonds a few layers at a time without upsetting surrounding tissue, sculpting the cornea to permanently restore failing light to dimming peepers, with many patients experiencing 20/20 results or better. Each LASIK treatment begins with an initial consultation to suss out a suitable treatment plan, followed by a preoperative appointment and six months of follow-up care to ensure proper healing and so that new and improved eyeballs maintain that new eyesight smell.
The procedure itself generally lasts only a few minutes, and most patients are able to return to work, driving, or the underground staring-contest circuit within a few days. The treatment generally results in minimal side effects, though some clients experience slight discomfort for up to 24 hours, and some report swelling, watering, or heightened sensitivity to light for a few days.
