This is a scam, i dont recommend Visual Affair to anyone. I bought a groupon ..my assessment is Visual Affair use groupon as a way of generating "walk-ins" to their store ( Pentagon city and Dupont circle) hoping to sell their overpriced frames. They have very small sellection and hence at the end of day Visual Affair make money from eye exam on you.

I went to their Pentagon City store in Arlington. The eye exam was good, quick, and efficient. They set me up with lovely frames. Note that they are designer frames and will cost a decent amount. They actually had my prescription in stock so within a couple hours they were fitted into the frames and I walked out with my new glasses on! Very pleased.

OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive. Even with the Groupon, they were asking $400 for an exam and a pretty basic set of eyewear. You can get the same frames online for half the price.

I wasn't aware of A Visual Affair until I saw the Groupon for them. I was very happy with both the doctor and staff.

The store uses the excuse that they are a boutique to mark up prices excessively. A pair of glasses they sold for $399 I found at multiple other vision centers for $125 and their basic lenses were $120 where I could get premium lenses for less than that at other locations. Needless to say I walked out with my vision prescription and did not use the $200 to purchase anything.

The Groupon price often is less than insurance prices. I recommend the Pentagon City location. Fast, easy, good.

I bought this Groupon for my wife. We feel the frames are a little overpriced, even with the $200 Groupon, we still had to pay $150. My wife also had the eye exam there, but the glasses came back with problems; one lens is making her feel dizzy, and the frame is hurting her nose. She is not very confident with the eye exam given to her, and they didn't provide any advice in helping her identifying a suitable frame for her face figure. We went back to them twice, and they told my wife to wear it for another two weeks before they may do something to correct the problems. We will not go back there in the future, and won't recommend this shop until the problems are fixed.

We didn't read the fine prints that we were required to purchases lenses and frames from A Visual Affair. Costs of frames and lenses are three times more expensive than at Costco, therefore, we forfeited the groupon and only went for the eye exam.
