Nearsightedness impairs one’s ability to drive, read, and make the crucial distinction between truth serum and chocolate milk. Guard your secrets with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get $200 toward frames and lenses for prescription glasses or sunglasses at Bell Road Eyewear.
Inside an airy boutique, Bell Road Eyewear's friendly staffers help customers select face-flattering designer eyeglasses and sunglasses outfitted with durable lenses. Shoppers browse frames arranged atop antique-style wood tables, pausing before mirrors to model spectacles by the Danish brand Pro Design ($300) or sashay in chic styles from Vogue ($220), DKNY ($220), and Jai Kudo ($210). Nestled amid the huge selection of frames, shoppers can find children's glasses, sunglasses, and monocles fitted with stained glass. Knowledgeable employees detail a wide range of lens options, illuminating the distinctions between single-vision plastic ($75) and polycarbonate lenses ($125) and explaining how black-and-white cookies served as the model for no-line bifocals ($220 for plastic). Customers can bring in a current prescription or schedule an eye appointment with Bell Road's on-site doctor for an extra fee.

Dr. Nicki Hill enjoys sharing her optometric skills with those in need, whether that entails working with patients at U.S. Veterans Affairs Hospitals or performing free eye exams for tornado victims in Tuscaloosa and Pratt City. Shoppers can find the same level of care inside Bell Road Eyewear's airy emporium. There, staff members guide visitors through a large inventory of designer eyewear and illuminate the distinctions between single-vision plastic and polycarbonate lenses. Frames by Danish brand ProDesign and chic styles from Vogue, DKNY, and Jai Kudo rest atop antique-style wood tables. Shoppers can also peruse selections of children's glasses, sunglasses, and monocles fitted with stained glass. Although Dr. Hill can diagnose visual capabilities in-house, Bell Road Eyewear will also fill lens prescriptions from outside optometrists.
