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 $50, you get $200 worth of eyewear at Alvernon Optical. This Groupon is good for six locations in the Tucson and Green Valley area. You must purchase lenses with your frames to redeem your Groupon; the Groupon cannot be used toward contacts or an eye exam.
The locally owned Alvernon Optical has been distributing high-quality frames and tending carefully to each oculus since 1961, the year human beings first evolved eyes. More than 2,000 frames line the walls in each store, including top-shelf brands like Ray Ban, DKNY, Dior, Giorgio Armani, Nike, and Kate Spade. Customers will also have their pick of frame materials such as plastic, titanium, metal, semi-rimless, and stainless steel. Once you've found the frames that nail the "sexy NASA scientist" look you're going for, Alvernon can pamper your peepers with a number of lens package deals. Couple a polycarbonate, scratch-resistant single-vision lens ($89 standard, $205 with bifocals, $154 sunglass) with one of your choice of designer frames to ensure a haze-free hazing ceremony from your rowdy book club, or calm Pac-Man-weary pupils with a computer lens package ($199) that decks your specs with a protective plastic lens specially designed for computer use. Just in time for summer, try the prescription swimming-goggle package ($139), which pairs one of a select group of fine brands with 100% UV-protected plastic lenses to deflect the sun's wicked glare and intimidate pool piranhas.
Glasses frames have come a long way from the clunky, squarish black frames that were originally used to punish children for squinting in church. Suddenly sighted customers will emerge from Alvernon Optical with adequate see-ball shelter from wind and sun, a fashion-forward face, and a more reliable method for identifying friends and family than smelling them.
New patients only. Redeemable starting July 6.
