Eyeglass World and The LASIK Vision Institute Help Consumers Fuel Their Vision With Gas Rebate Offer

LAKE WORTH, FL--(Marketwire - June 3, 2008) - Eyeglass World, a top retailer of eyewear, and The LASIK Vision Institute, a leading provider of laser vision correction services, today announced the two retailers will be offering customers a special gas rebate with the purchase of a new pair of eyeglasses or a LASIK procedure.

Eyeglass World customers who bring in their gas receipt will receive a credit of up to $75 towards the purchase of a new pair of eyeglasses; The LASIK Vision Institute is offering a credit of up to $100 toward the purchase of laser vision correction.

"We're trying to help our customers during this challenging economic climate," said Chris Edwards, chief marketing officer for Vision Care Holdings, LLC, which owns Eyeglass World and The LASIK Vision Institute. "Our already low pricing, combined with this unique gas savings offer, will enable people to get the glasses or procedure they need at a price easier on their wallets."

The LASIK Vision Institute (LVI) provides laser vision correction services through the company's 31 upscale laser correction centers located in 23 states across the country. LVI uses CustomVue by VISX Technology, the latest state-of-the-art FDA-approved laser technology, in each of its centers. Procedures are performed by experienced independent eye surgeons who have collectively completed more than 650,000 eye surgeries. Pre and postoperative visits, along with patient counseling, are available at all locations. Unlike other eye surgery providers, LVI owns its laser equipment and can offer consumers pricing significantly below other providers while maintaining a high standard of service from the best quality physicians.
