The seasoned ophthalmic technicians at the Reno Eye Clinic examine eye orbs of all ages for signs of flagging focus, vision-inhibiting disease, or evidence of over-ogling. Eye exams every one to two years are recommended by the American Optometric Association as a vital diagnostic and preventive means of protecting precious peepers. Unlike high-school finals or inventing ways to stop oncoming asteroids, failing this test is not the end of the world, as the clinic has caregivers on hand and a vast selection of frames from designers such as Calvin Klein, Nine West, and South Hampton to help improve your odds next time around. If necessary, prescriptions can be filled onsite in about an hour, and customers who prefer a contact-lens fitting can also use the value of today's Groupon as a credit toward that instead.
