A stylish pair of eyeglasses can resolve many issues such as confusing your date with their sibling under mistletoe and not being able to hide a secret identity as Superman. Avoid awkward encounters and disguise alter egos with today's Groupon: for $59, you get $250 toward a full set of eyewear—frames and lenses—at Character Eyez located on 5th Avenue South. Today's Groupon is not valid toward contact lenses or nonprescription sunglasses.
Character Eyez equips world-weary sightseekers with an array of fashion, performance, and vintage eyewear designed to be both durable and stylish. For a chic, modern look, customers can browse a collection of fashionable frames from designers such as Eye Deco, Via Spiga, and Jones New York, ($139+), while those with retro taste can enhance their style and instantly fit in during successful time-traveling experiments with assorted authentic vintage frames going to decades as far back as the '40s.
All frames can be fitted with high-quality lenses with standard single vision lenses ($109+), and standard progressive power lenses to correct a range of ocular ailments ($189+). Nab superior sunglasses from brands such as Ray Ban and Maui Jim to protect sensitive eyes from falling sunbeams. Putting client satisfaction as their highest priority, Character Eyez works directly with top-notch labs when crafting glasses.
Though Character Eyez sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Before they opened Character Eyez, licensed opticians Bob and Linda Jack worked for a leading eyewear provider. Today, they extract only the best practices from this experience to run their independent shop, such as working directly with top designers and affixing frames with precision lenses by Varilux and Carl Zeiss. Their cozy stone building is located within Naples Bay Resort, where a striped awning beckons passersby and serves as a landing pad for nearsighted seagulls. Inside, staffers stock shelves with designer frames by Swissflex, Versace, and Ray-Ban.
