The ocular experts at Smeelink Optical frame out- of-focus eyes in calibrated corrective lenses and more than 1,000 designer frames from brands including Oakley, Prada, Versace, and Gucci. In approximately 60-minutes, trained optometrists test for a gamut of ocular issues including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and wandering third eyes. Exam results identify the ideal set of corrective lenses ($99+) from a collection of polycarbonate, transitions, polarized, and multifocal fillers to nestle inside a selection of traditional, trendy, and natural-material frames ($99+). Basic frames ($99+) appease minimalist eyes, and vogue Gucci or Coach frames ($189–$369) make seeing feel stylish and fancy, like watching expensively dressed strangers in a hotel lobby.
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.
With locations throughout the Midwest, Vision Center At Meijer's eye mavens outfit more than 700 frames with lenses carefully crafted in their own laboratory to specifically suit the eyes and face of each patient. Doctors demonstrate their care for patients' eyes by making sure all of them have a precise, up-to-date prescription. The center also works to keep frame prices low to help more patients find pairs of glasses within their price ranges.
SVS Vision Center’s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 50 locations sprawled across 10 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Vision Center’s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.
