LASIK Surgery Giveaway

Today is the opportunity of a lifetime, my friends. 
I've teamed up with a group of incredible bloggers, Favorite Family Recipes, Sweet Treats and More, The Recipe Critic, Baking with Blondie, Something Swanky, Taste and Tell, Your Cup of Cake, Brassy Apple, 365 Days of Slowcooking and Life of a Passeri to give away....
 LASIK eye surgery worth $4,800 to one lucky winner! 
Yes, you read that right. One lucky winner will receive LASIK eye surgery worth $4,800 - and say goodbye to their glasses + contacts for a lifetime. Just scroll to the bottom of the post to enter!

But, wait that's not all, we also wanted to giveaway something special to each who enters the giveaway. So we also decided, that even if you don't win, you should still get a serious discount towards your LASIK eye surgery. So, even if you don't win, you'll be sent an exclusive discount from Davis Vision, making it much more affordable.

I've always been curious about Lasik, but just the thought of watching an actual lasik surgery being performed right before me made my a little queezy. So my first reaction when darling Cariann from Sweet Basil invited me to come watch was something like:

yah right. super gross. 

After a few short minutes, though, I thought to myself:

let's do this

Because after all, after going to see the procedure, meet the potential doctor who my husband and I would eventually get lasik sugery from someday, and visiting with a bunch of bloggers who I've looked up to for a very long time, we'd be able to giveaway a procedure that could change someones life.

totally worth it. 

The surgery lasted only about 2 minutes per eye, and Cariann's husband (who had no idea he was getting lasik until we all surprised him that evening with it - how fun is that?) was able to see perfectly the next morning. The recovery time was so much faster than I anticipated, and after watching the surgery, and learning about such a wonderfully talented doctor (Dr. Davis) and office such as Davis VisionI was fully convinced Ryan and I need to start saving right away.

Here's just a few details that might answer some of the questions you might have (I know, because I had them too!)

    1. Dr. Davis has performed over 25,000 vision correction procedures
    2. Every person has seen an improvement in vision.
    3. Advanced Blade Free LASIK can have outcomes as good as 20/15
    4. Dr. Davis has several options available because everyone has different eyes.
    5. Some who weren't candidates in the past are now candidates due to technology advancements.
    6. Dr. Davis also performs ICL and cataract surgery.
    7. Dr. Davis helped develop the technology that is used in LASIK as an electrical engineer in the 1980's
    8. Care Credit is available to patients who qualify, (0% interest is never a bad thing)
    9. Dr Davis and his staff are kind, and more concerned with the patient and what a great privilege it is to change their life through corrected vision than prices, gimmicks etc. (This was a really big deal for us)
    10. Lasik is performed with the intralase laser which means that the surgery is less complicated, lower risk and easier to recover from versus the blade procedure. Plus it only takes 10-15 minutes to do it!

Here they are before the surgery - Cade still had no idea a this point that he was getting it. Cariann was pretty clever in "prepping" him for the event. She told him we were going to a 1800CONTACT event for  a free year of contacts for him. Since he wasn't supposed to wear contacts a week before the surgery, she'd been sneaking his contacts out, and even ripping some to eliminate the possibility of him putting them in his eyes. He was so happy when we told him at the office (after the doctor had him "model" the surgery attire) that he started crying. You could tell he really wanted this, and was genuinely surprised and grateful for such a beautiful gift from his wife, and the doctor.

Here he is after the surgery! He could see pretty well at this point, but the next morning everything was perfect. No more contacts or glasses needed. Ever.

Amazing isn't it?

Well, here's your chance, my friends.

Let the giveaway begin!

Huge shout-out again to Davis Vision and Dr. Davis for this amazing opportunity.
