Eyesight correction was popular among ancient Romans, who toted brick-heavy specs to gladiatorial contests to catch a glimpse of mascots catapulting togas into the crowd. Assess the modern version of vision with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $200 toward prescription eyewear at 20/20 Optical in San Rafael and Novato. This Groupon must be used toward a purchase of both frames and prescription lenses.
20/20 Optical's selection of stylish frames outfits eyes in spectacles from high-quality brands such as Oliver Peoples, Paul Smith, Lindberg, and Face a Face. Peruse more than 4,000 frames (most prices begin around $250) to find the pair that ideally suits your face shape, sense of style, and preferred number of eyes. A staff of experts, certified by the American Board of Opticianry, ensures the on-site eyewear lab cuts lenses to fit frames and sightlines ($130+ for single-vision lenses, $259+ for multifocals), creating pairs of eyewear far superior to jagged spectacles with serrated-edge lenses.
