Like hard-boiled detectives, prescription lenses clear up blurry mysteries and frequently end up framed. Focus on the facts with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $250 toward complete designer frames with prescription lenses at the Spectacle Shoppe, with locations in Burnsville, New Brighton, Rogers, St. Paul, and West St. Paul.

Spectacle Shoppe's oft-awarded cache of more than 12,000 designer and vintage frames adds interest to oculars, and lenses ground in the in-house lab sharpen blurred vision. The stock includes 8 Below Zero fashion glasses designed by owner David Ulrich, designer frames from Bulgari, Mikado, and Ralph Lauren, and vintage cat-eye frames. The store's helpful face framers have adorned the nose bridges of celebrity clientele including Kenneth Branagh, Bette Midler, JLo, and Snuffleupagus. Customers can find bold frames covered in eel or adorned with mink, opt for subtle pairs, or select professionally elegant monocles to sport.

Most frames range from $189 to $499, and the most frequently spotted price tag reads $259. Spectacle Shoppe's in-house lab merges stylishly formed frames with sight-clearing functionality and grinds lenses to each client's needs. Single-vision lenses offer uniform sight calibration ($159–$429), and bifocal ($199–$299), trifocal ($229–$289), and progressive lenses ($299–$650) allow for multiple-prescription strengths. Additional add-ons include polarization to reduce glare ($129) and tinting to shield eyes from the sun's sequined cabaret routines ($40).

Spectacle Shoppe

Entrepreneur and frame designer David Ulrich has cleared the vision of Twin Cities citizens since 1969. Besides creating a wealth of exclusive eyeglasses frames, such as the sleek 8 Below Zero collection and the retro-inspired Studebaker line, Ulrich opened Spectacle Shoppe to serve customers’ optic needs. There, teams of certified opticians accurately assess prescriptions and fashion single-vision, progressive, or bifocal lenses in the in-house lab. Clients confer with the staff to design custom frames or choose from the shop's thousands of one-of-a-kind frames, vintage cat's-eye styles, and double monocles.


The selection was amazing; I've never seen such a huge inventory in the 20 years that I've worn glasses.
