How we’re able to offer LASIK at discounted prices

if you’ve done any price comparison research, you’ve seen that most doctors charge more than we do. The reason is most have to lease their surgical equipment-and pay a per use charge and their per use as well. To cover their leasing and per use charge they have to charge their patients more. On top of that, most don’t own own their facilities, so they have high lease payments to cover.

There are three primary reasons we can charge so much less for our procedures-and still make money too.

1. We own our own state-of-art LASIK equipment.

2.We own our own facility -so we are not at the mercy of landlords and high medical facility rents.

3. BEST LASIK Laser Eye Center is an independent medical practice. Unlike many others, we are not owned or managed by public companies or an investment group.

These reasons enable us to keep overhead down and pass on the savings to our patients without ever sacrificing the quality of our care.

LASIK Eye Surgery Cost

  • The cost of laser eye surgery, known as LASIK, varies widely from surgeon to surgeon, with a national average of about $1,950 per eye. Average prices do not vary much by geographic region, but minimum and maximum fees do. All About Vision [1 ] provides a chart of regional cost differences.
  • The cost of laser eye surgery also depends on whether your surgeon is performing traditional LASIK or the more expensive Custom LASIK, in which the doctor uses new technology to create a three-dimensional map of the patient’s eye. This allows for a more precise vision correction and possibly lower chances of post-surgery complications. Most surgeons charge between $200 to $500 extra per eye for this.
  • Also, if your surgeon uses IntraLase, another new technology, you can expect to pay an average of $344 more per eye. In IntraLase, the surgeon uses a laser, instead of a small metal blade, to cut a flap in the cornea where a laser is then used to reshape the cornea. Surgeons who use it say it provides a lower risk of complications and a better chance of achieving 20/20 vision.

What should be included:

  • The International Society of Refractive Surgery gives a diagram, and an overview of the LASIK procedure, which takes about 30 minutes.

Additional costs:

  • Your surgeon should offer a series of follow-up visits as part of the total cost of the procedure. But, if something goes wrong and you need more visits or additional surgery not spelled out in your agreement, you will have to pay for it out-of-pocket.

Discounts:

  • Many health insurance providers consider laser eye surgery a cosmetic procedure and do not cover the cost. But patients who pay for eye surgery out-of-pocket might be eligible for a tax deduction.
  • Tip: Check to see whether your employer has negotiated a corporate discount with a certain provider on LASIK surgery for employees. If they have not, check with human resources to see if they would be willing to consider the possibility. Sometimes it is possible to get 10 to 25 percent off this way.

Shopping for lasik eye surgery:

  • Tip: Beware of advertisements that offer LASIK surgery at prices that seem too good to be true. Some LASIK providers have paid fines, after actions by state attorneys general, for false advertising of bargain-priced laser surgery that turned out to have hidden fees. When shopping for LASIK, always make sure that the quoted price includes regular follow-up visits and any medically necessary follow-up surgery needed in the first year. SeeWithLasik.com [2 ] offers a guide for consumers on evaluating LASIK prices.
  • Tip: Be aware that LASIK is not right for everyone – poor candidates include patients whose glasses or contact prescription fluctuates due to pregnancy or disease such as diabetes; athletes who regularly participate in contact sports; and patients with conditions such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, that may interfere with healing.

The Eye Pupil – More Than it Seems #eye #pupil,dilated #pupils,beady #eyes,pupil

The Eye Pupil More Than it Seems

Why do the eye pupils dilate or contract? Is it only a response to change in illumination?

It s common knowledge that the eye pupils dilate and contract according to the light they re exposed to. This body mechanism helps regulate the amount of light we receive, which allows us to see better in different light conditions.

Perhaps what you didn t know is that your pupils react to visual stimulations, too a positive or negative response represented in the eyes. Your pupils, involuntary, can dilate or constrict in their size according to whether or not you like what you see.

Let s see if we can get a deeper look

The Size Does Matter (sometimes )

So what does it mean?

In general, the bigger the eye pupils the more favorable and excited the response. Your pupils dilate when you see something you like, as if you wish to grasp more of what you see.

In courtship, for example, it can be a strong signal of affection prolonged eye contact with dilated pupils is one of the first indicators of attraction. It can be a misleading signal, but more on that later.

Not only dilated pupils show a positive response in someone, but we also find them more appealing to look at. That s why babies are programmed to dilate their eye s pupils when looking at adults – they get more affection points.

Toy manufactures, understanding this, produce toys with really big eyes and pupils to draw the attention of kids, who naturally like them better. This also explains why kids (and adults) really like anime character with their excessively big eyes.

The opposite is also true. constricted eye pupils show resentment, defiance and general disliking. We also like them less. It s really simple if you think about it if someone seems not to like you, usually you won t have much incentive to like him or her back.

As part of my job as juggling instructor I work with children. I get to see these reactions in eye pupils almost every day when a child is happy about his success you can see his pupils turn to sparkling sphere he looks full of life! On the other hand, some kids, when being reprimanded, meet my gaze and I can see little defiant needles staring at me

Attraction

So, when do our pupils grow the most?

When we re sexually aroused of course

According to an experiment done in pupillometry (the study of how pupil size reflects psychological condition) Heterosexual genders eye pupils were dilated in response to pictures of semi naked opposite sex. In females the pupils were affected also by pictures of babies and mothers.

OK, so our pupils dilatewhen we re stimulated. but is it also going the other way around?
Are we attracted to dilated pupils?

The researchers Tombs and Silverman found that guys have a straightforward approach to this question the bigger the eye pupils the more attractive they found them. For females however, it s a little more complicated: they prefer either medium or big sized pupils, and the tendency to choose bigger pupils is associated with the preference for bad boy types of guys. Find out more here.

Advertising companies, taking advantage, often enlarge the pupils of the models on the covers of magazines to tempt us for buying it. Sex sells, and part of this sex appeal is dilated pupils.

If you think about it, it may also explain why we like dim lights in romantic places it s artificially dilates yours and yours date s pupils and make you look more attractive. It s also a great way to make all of your surroundings fade to black and concentrate on each other.

Too Good to be True?

Thinking about these facts may make you wonder, if it s involuntary and can accurately indicate interest and emotion, does it makes the whole does he\she like me? thing too easy?

Ah, but of course there are some complications:

1. The biggest issue is that pupils first and foremost dilate and contract according to the lightning setting. Don t take offense if you see your loved ones stare at you with beady eyes in a bright sunny day.

By the way, that s why I said that this can be misleading in courtship, especially in a romantic dimly lit place. Still, keep in mind that we like to gaze at dilated pupils so it s not all bad.

2. You need to extremely observant to spot these changes occur, not an easy job when trying to focus on the many other aspects of communication. Besides it can be pretty hard to see the pupil size in dark eyes.

What Do We Take From Here

I don t want you leave you with a feeling that it s too damn hard to use. So let me remind you that while our conscious mind is busy focusing on the conversation itself, we perceive most body language signs subconsciously .

This means that you don t need to check every moment what is the size of your date s pupils but rather allow yourself to relax and become perceptive, knowing the signs will bring them to your mind when you see them.

I hope this post also helps to explain some intriguing scenarios from our life. Like why many poker players shade their eyes during the game to hide the automatic dilation of their pupils when they get good cards.

Here s one about Eckhard Hess the scientist who invented the method of pupillometry. If roll down the page can find his more about his experiments

With regulatory clearance in the US, EU and a number of other major international regulatory bodies, the Company’s technology has been increasingly adopted as a powerful research tool and more recently as a cost effective and patient friendly clinical neurodiagnostic platform.


  • Gobi Desert, Mongolia #gobi #desert, #mongolia, #aerial #mongolia, #mongolia #panoramas, #desert, #gobi,


    Open Virtual Tour

    The Gobi is one of the greatest deserts in the world. A stripe stretching for more than 1,500 kilometres from the Northern part of China to South-Eastern Mongolia occupies the territory bigger than UK, France, Spain and Portugal taken all together 1,3 million square kilometres.

    The Mongolian word “Govi” means “Waterless Place”, but the Gobi is not only the desert its terrain is rather diverse. High dunes of drifting sands cover only 3% of the Gobi territory. The main part of its lands is occupied by broad stony and clay valleys, huge prairies, picturesque rocky mountains, vast basins with rare oases, hillocky areas, salt marshes, canyons. The climate of the Gobi is sharply continental. Cross-seasonal temperature variations are extreme and can be compared to the ones of the “Pole of Cold” in Oymyakon, Yakutia. The winter is rather cold (up to -50?) with strong gusts of wind and the summer is extremely hot (up to +55?).

    Local people are very friendly and curious, always ready to talk and help in any situation. At the same time, practically all of them including those living in the capital, Ulan-Bator do not speak any foreign language, neither English, nor Russian. That’s why we had learnt some Mongolian words which made our life a little bit easier: “Sain baina uu” “Hello”, “Bayartai” “Goodbye”, “Bayarlalaa” “Thank you”, “Z geer ee” “You are welcome”, “Sain” “Good”.

    A couple of words about local food: such a notion as “fast food” (in its direct meaning) can be met only in big cities. As for smaller towns and villages, in zoogiin gazars (cafes) and cajny gazars (canteens) cooking takes some time: the meat will be cut, the soup will be boiled and manti will be created right at your presence. Everything is delicious and fresh, but be ready to spend an hour and a half to have a meal.

    The way to the desert was a difficult and long one. It took us more than a week to leave Novosibirsk and get the first destination of our expedition Khermen Tsav, via Chuya highway, climbing the passes and crossing the wades.

    In deserts the roads are regarded as “directions”. Indeed, if you have a navigator, why should you follow someone’s path in case any other way is as hard as this one?

    And one more “navigational” feature: there are no postal addresses in Mongolia, for delivering they use geographical coordinates longitude and latitude.

    In Mongolia travelling on one car is rather unsafe: in case of any smallest breakage or failure you are risking to be left without any help. As for the expedition to some remote and rough terrain regions it is recommended to have at least three well-equipped off-road vehicles.

    At the beginning of the canyon you can’t help noticing a huge branchy “Tugrik tree” where travellers leave small “donations” 100, 200 or 500 Tugriks. Thick bushes of saxaul begin to appear in sight. You should be very careful with it: saxaul is rather sharp, and it can easily cut the tires of our cars.

    It was not an easy thing to find a proper approach to the canyon one time we rested on a wall, the other we found ourselves on the edge of a cliff. Once we even had to climb a high sand dune steering wheel in the most unimaginable way.

    A 20-kilometers long canyon named Khernem Tsav (translates as “Sharp Rocks”), with steep red cliffs made of sandstone, stuns with its monumental beauty and resembles the famous Grand Canyon in Colorado, in some way. Like in Rorschach pictures, everyone can see their own figures in the “architecture” of the canyon: it can be either Buddha stupas, or Christian churches, and both monumental fortified walls and ancient eastern ensembles. One of the eroded “sculptures” has gotten the name “Sphinx”.

    While we were staying in a camp in the canyon, suddenly a sandstorm began and the wind began blowing away our tents. It felt like this red fine sand wanted to penetrate everything it could: cups, zipped tents, camera lenses. As soon as we saw this, we hid in the cars to wait till it was over. The realisation of this “sitting and waiting” was rather frustrating: at such a wind we failed not only to launch our drone, but even taking out the cameras was a big problem as well. Six hours later just before the nightfall, a miracle happened the storm ceased and we finally managed to launch the drone to make several panoramas.

    They show the abode of the ancient fossil animals. The point is that the Gobi is also famous for having numerous fossilized dinosaur finds. In 1925 the expedition of the American Museum of Natural History found in Bayan Zag sandstone area a lot of dinosaur remnants and even multiple dinosaur fossilized eggs. In 1946 the Soviet expedition of the Academy of Sciences under guidance of professor Yefremov found the crucial location of gigantic dinosaur fossils in Nemegt the largest one in the Old World. Around 80 skeletons of 60 species were found in Mongolia a quarter of the overall number of dinosaur finds in the world.

    We were photographing at the estuary of Khermen Tsav. At the Cretaceous this place was inhabited by a huge number of triceratopses four-legged herbivorous dinosaurs. Their fossils can still be found in these lands.

    Just before our departure from Khermen Tsav I was “lucky” enough to have gotten lost. For more than an hour I was wandering in the labyrinths and passes of the canyon. My imagination started creating the visions of how I can become a fossil myself because this place is rarely visited even by the Mongols. I had to follow my own footprints to find the way out. Thanks to the absence of wind, I could easily find them.

    Our next destination was one of the most picturesque sights of the Gobi Khongoryn Els, also known as the “Singing Sands”. A huge stripe of sand dunes stretching for over 180 kilometres and having the height up to 300 meters and the width between 3 and 15 kilometres.

    At the look at Khongoryn Els you have a feeling that a huge machine brought a great amount of sand here and placed it carefully in the middle of the stony desert, so artificially it looks. A perfect place for those who did not spend enough time in a sandbox in their childhood. As for me, I wish I had a snowboard with me the steep slopes of dunes are just perfect for sliding.

    In the twilight the majestic waves of sand dunes look unusually prominent. This is the world where the lines are exact, they divide the dark and the bright side from each other. But if you want, you can walk on the ridge and break this line and the ridge will form another outline which will be as distinct, as the previous one.

    Our final destination in our expedition was the sandy cliffs of Bayan Zag (literary “Rich in Saxaul”). They are also often referred as “Flaming Cliffs” due to the red and orange colour of the sandstone cliffs. Comparing to Khermen Tsav and Khongoryn Els, this place is rather easily accessible from the nearest settlement Dalanzadgad “The capital of the Gobi”; it takes only several hours to get there from this city.

    The wind erodes the layers of multi-coloured sandstone and pressed clay, and during the rains the water washes them out. Without occasional bushes and grass it would look like a truly Martian landscape.

    As we have mentioned, in the 1940s a big paleontological expedition under the guidance of the great palaeontologist and science fiction author Ivan Yefremov was studying these lands. This is how he described this place: “But still, in the evening, at least ten minutes before sunset, the canyon revealed the best incomparable fantastic scene. The eroded cliffs of the ancient sandstone formations were blazing with the bright red colours. It felt like the whole basin was on fire. And this phenomenon can be easily explained: the rays of the setting sun were illuminating the red walls of the basin and sarsen sandstones, creating a rather realistic vision of the “burning cliffs”. Probably, these “alien” landscapes inspired this science-fiction writer to create his novel “Andromeda Nebula”, didn’t it? And now you also have an opportunity to travel to these “extra-terrestrial”, but still earthy lands, with the help of our panoramas.
