At Vue Optical Boutique, owner Dr. Dana M. Nolan and her friendly staff expertly outfit men, women, and kids in stylish luxury glasses and sunglasses from brands such as Gucci, Oliver Peoples, and Kate Spade. Shop the chic boutique and select a pair of luxury frames ($150+) before adding a set of single-vision plastic lenses ($90+). Stylish Tom Ford sunglasses ($380), which include aviators, or Fendis protect peepers from the harsh glare of the sun or a Parcheesi rival. Although not included in this Groupon, Vue Optical Boutique also offers eye-care services that use state-of-the-art equipment such as digital retinal 3-D imaging for vision diagnostics, LASIK evaluations, and comprehensive eye-health examinations.
At Derickson Vision Consultants, complimentary snacks and refreshments greet visitors before Dr. Derickson—a board-certified optometric physician—and his compatriots utilize state-of-the-art equipment to examine eyes and ocular health. Taking the guesswork out of eye measurements, the staff avoids the continual barrage of "better or worse," questions and instead uses retinal-reflection refractive instruments to determine prescriptions. Meanwhile, kids can watch movies in an optical playhouse, and Dr. Derickson, also a certified aviation vision specialist and a private pilot himself, assists pilots with their vision difficulties and helps them avoid mistakenly landing on fashion-show runways.

And every customer gets free ultrasonic cleanings on those glasses for life.
