Designer eyeglasses are the international symbol for cool, beating out chewing a toothpick and not seeking medical attention for a rattlesnake bite. Stagger home in style with this Groupon.
$30 for $150 Toward Eyeglasses Plus a Complimentary Second Pair
Prescription lenses find homes inside designer frames from Guess ($239), Calvin Klein ($279), Coach ($349), and Tom Ford ($350). Each location stocks a parade of classic and contemporary styles from name brands such as Guess, Candie's, Izod, Esprit, and Puma. For their complimentary second pair, customers receive single-vision CR39 lenses and choose from a select group of frames.
Though Sterling Optical sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Founded in 1914, the original New York City location of Sterling Optical doled out frames amid the Ford Model Ts and paperboys that swarmed the city's financial district. The original band of eyesight experts weathered years of economic depression by impressing customers with speedy, full-service vision care, later launching a second store near Washington, DC. Today, a century of steady franchise expansion has given rise to almost 200 store locations in 23 states. Most locations continue the tradition of offering one-stop optical services, giving customers access to exams and onsite labs that manufacture glasses in one hour. The spectacle provider has been named one of the nation's leading franchises by Entrepreneur magazine.
