While Ben Franklin famously invented bifocals, few people realize John Hancock started the sunglasses-worn-on-the-back-of-the-head craze. Find your ideal frame fit with today's Groupon: for $50, you get an eye exam and $200 worth of prescription eyewear (a $268 total value) at 1st Eye Care, valid at locations in Fort Worth and Weatherford.
For more than 30 years, 1st Eye Care's trained team of vision vigilantes has kept peepers properly perusing. During the initial eye exam, a skilled technician will use the state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to check each viewing orb's health for signs of glaucoma, dry-eye syndrome, and the adverse effects of a battering ram. Once viewfinders are cleared for spectacle usage, customers can peruse the boutique's eclectic stash of frames ($174–$400) ranging from simple designs to a brand-name style from Ce-Tru ($174) to the fashion-friendly Prada, Coach, Nautica, Phat Farm, and Sophia Loren, or court a pair of stylish sunglasses by brands including Ray-Ban and Ed Hardy. Accompanying prescription lenses ($103+ for plastic single-vision lenses, $159+ for bifocal) will complete eye-frame transformations from lensless Groucho glasses into certified sight-augmenters.
Housing a 7,000-square-foot optical laboratory, 1st Eye Care employs a crew of skilled lab techs who carefully customize each eyewear pair to fit customers' fragile faces or recently transplanted elephant trunks.
