Many view looking good and seeing well as dual goals attainable only by monocle-graced Cyclopes. Envision your new visage with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $150 toward prescription eyewear or prescription sunwear or $100 toward non-prescription designer sunglasses at Absolutely Optical, located in International Plaza near Robb and Stucky Interiors.
Absolutely Optical's upscale eyewear inventory is obtained exclusively from high-end international-trade shows, with more than 3,000 designer frames in stock and a refracted array of prescription lenses waiting in the wings. Decorate plain-Jane pupils with dazzling eyeglass frames from fashion gurus such as Hugo Boss ($175+), Ralph Lauren ($175+), and Giorgio Armani ($199+) or revitalize vexed vision with prescription lenses that magnify sea-monkeys until they look like they do on the box ($115+). Distortion-free sunglasses from dashing solar-shielders such as Coach ($160+), Prada ($195+), and Rayban ($99+) keep quivering vampire eyeballs out of reach from the sun's flame fingers.
The chic modern décor of Absolutely Optical's crystalline spectacle gallery creates an ocular haven for fading headlamps seeking the gift of improved sight. Quiescent amber lighting envelops hues of baby blue, brown, and burnt orange, and sleek wooden floors provide a safe haven for any blind beavers that accidentally wander into the store.
Absolutely Optical and Eye Trends
High-fashion frames from Prada, Cartier, and Michael Kors line the walls at Absolutely Optical and Eye Trends. The 3,000 designer-quality frames in stock on any given day include an extensive selection crafted from long-lasting materials such as titanium, stainless steel, or virgin zyl plastic imbued with fade-proof color. Technicians wander through the shop, waiting to fit the frames with distortion-free sunglass lenses, the newest generation of antireflection lenses, or googly eyes so it seems like you are awake while guarding a boring art museum. For prescriptions, patrons can consult the onsite optometrist, Dr. Jay Weil, who not only tests vision but also bolsters eye health with procedures ranging from hydrating treatments for dryness to LASIK surgery.
