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 $29, you get $200 worth of designer prescription eyewear or prescription sunglasses at Atlanta Eye Shop.
Atlanta Eye Shop's experienced optometrists and knowledgeable staff enhance peepers with fetching frames by designers such as Prada and Kate Spade in their new shop in historic Vinings. Enlist the aid of an eyeglasses guru to aid in seeking out optimal brands such as Banana Republic ($149+). Lenses start at $99, with options such as progressive lenses, lined bifocals, and telescoping goggle frames for eyes that struggle to achieve cartoonish expressions of surprise. Nondesigner eyewear and sunglasses start at $75, which may cause eyelashes to bat frantically in appreciation. Clients should either bring a valid prescription or make an appointment with one of the expert in-house doctors (the cost of an eye exam is not included in this Groupon). Newly framed eyes can flit along the deep-hued walls of the lofted boutique, illuminated by colorful glass fixtures and the gleaming smiles of nearby spectacle-sporters.
