The certified opticians at Lansing Ophthalmology fit visitors with a varied stock of prescription and nonprescription designer sunglasses. Encircle blinkers with stylish Oakley shades ($89+) or shield tear ducts while stomping onions for wine with a pair from Cole Haan ($115+). Single-vision sun lenses ($89+) let wearers speed-read sunsets with stunning accuracy, and cutting-edge lens designs from Seiko and Pentax rival the styles sported by Hollywood A-list talking dogs ($234+). Although this Groupon is not valid toward services, a staff of talented opticians—many of them certified by the American Board of Opticianry—is on hand to diagnose eyeball prescriptions. All sunglasses and lenses are insured by a yearlong workmanship guarantee, subject to an additional fee after 90 days.
Though Professional Eyecare Center lines its walls with designer frames from brands such as Gucci, Fendi, and Ray-Ban, its staff remains fixated on overall eye health. The team offers preventative eye exams, pre- and post-surgery care, and LASIK consultations for those who may be eligible for permanent vision correction. Team members also perform consultations and examinations designed to reveal signs of trouble and to pair patients with lenses that will finally allow them to find needles in haystacks or craft stores with minimal signage.
