Carrie goes to the DMV to have her license renewed. When she is told that she needs to wear corrective lenses to drive, she is depressed at the idea of getting older. Doug sees this as an opportunity to finally get her the perfect gift for her upcoming birthday - laser eye surgery. The gift turns out to be less than perfect when, after a week of recovery, her vision is still blurry. At Carrie's birthday party, it is discovered that Doug did not take the advice of Carrie's boss to use his eye surgeon, but instead, went to a place that offered a discount coupon.
