With a few extra minutes of sunlight each day and the Twins off to a strong start this season, the telltale signs of summer are everywhere. When you think about biking along the Mississippi, going fishing up north or just playing with your kids in your backyard, consider how much more you’d enjoy these summer activities if you didn’t have to worry about wearing glasses or contact lenses.
Switching back and forth between your glasses and sunglasses is a nuisance, so what better time than this summer to get LASIK? Claris Eye Care & Surgery of Minneapolis is featuring a LASIK Groupon. With ophthalmologist Dr. Keith Carlson performing the procedure, you’ll get careful, precision treatment at an affordable price.
LASIK Groupon: A Great Deal
LASIK, which stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a procedure that uses a laser to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. With the LASIK Groupon to Claris Eye Care & Surgery, patients pay only $199 for $1,000 towards a complete LASIK surgery for both eyes. Patients are required to meet with Dr. Carlson for an evaluation prior to the treatment to determine if they are a candidate and if so, which vision correction procedure is best for them. Many patients have 20/20 vision after the surgery and their eyes heal enough for them to begin seeing again the day after the procedure.
The LASIK Groupon includes postoperative evaluations for one year after the surgery. As with any promotion, certain restrictions apply so make sure to check the fine print.
LASIK vs. LASEK vs. PRK
Most people have heard of LASIK, but there are a few different types of laser vision corrective surgeries that vary depending on how the eye is prepared for the treatment.
With LASIK, the ophthalmologist creates a thin flap on the eye’s surface, folds back the flap, reshapes the corneal tissue using a laser and then returns the flap to the original position.
PRK differs in that the surgeon removes the thin outer layer of the cornea, reshapes the cornea and then the outer layer naturally grows back within a few days.
LASEK is a combination of both LASIK and PRK. In this corrective procedure, the ophthalmologist separates the thin outer layer of the cornea during surgery, but it remains attached to the eye and is repositioned on the eye after laser surgery.
