Wearing eyeglasses is the easiest way to look intelligent, closely beating out reading a full set of encyclopedias on the bus or being British. Wise up your eyes with this Groupon.
- $29 for $100 toward a pair of eyeglasses, a free second pair, and $100 toward the prescription (a $200 value)
Customers can peruse the more than 4,000 frames that line each store, including brand-name options from Oakley, Ray-Ban, Versace, Tom Ford, Guess, Dsquared2, and Sunoptic ($175–$250+). Once clients have chosen their frames, opticians fit them with progressive, digital, or classic lenses. Customers who have bought a full pair of glasses receive a second pair for free, which can use different prescriptions, lenses, and frames.
Blurry vision is not just an annoyance; it’s a health risk. So when the owners of Optiks International saw a chance to vertically integrate their business model—and cut down time between an eye exam and obtaining glasses—they jumped on it. The optometrists inside their chain offer the convenience of one-stop lens shopping. Technicians can create custom-fitted standard, progressive, and googly-eye lenses. The labs constantly seek out the latest technologies to improve vision, including digital lenses that decrease peripheral distortion and custom cuttings that alter lenses to accommodate the tilt of chosen frames.
Each store stocks a supply of more than 4,000 frames, including options from designer brands such as Coach, Armani, Ray-Ban, and Oakley. Every store also offers a two-for-one deal for each pair of prescription glasses sold, allowing clients to give a pair of glasses to a family member or pair their purchase with prescription sunglasses to avoid darkening regular specs with a whiteboard marker when leaving the house.
