Though commonly thought to be mere gibberish, the letters on eye charts are actually powerful incantations that, when spoken aloud, keep the sky wolves from devouring the sun. Protect our source of illumination with today’s Groupon: for $58, you get an eye-care package at ClearVision Optometry’s Newport News or Yorktown location (up to a $374 value). The package includes the following:
- A comprehensive eye exam (a $199 value)
- $175 credit toward prescription lenses and frames<p>
ClearVision Optometry keeps peepers focused and fashionable by injecting an enormous selection of chic, name-brand frames with fresh prescription lenses. During each comprehensive exam, an experienced ocular specialist assesses the client’s seeing capabilities and screens for symptoms of disease or early-onset googly eyes, then uses the resulting information to carefully calibrate a new prescription. As lenses ($80+) are fabricated onsite, friendly staff members help outfit faces with frames from iconic names such as Versace, Prada, and Ray-Ban. A pair of Dolce & Gabbana ($188+) or Vera Wang ($130+) specs add a touch of glamour to an everyday getup, and stylish prescription sunglasses from Serengeti Eyewear help shield orbs from a TV that refuses to stop sitting too close to them.
ClearVision Optometry's optometrists and opticians have built their practice on continuing feedback from clients. They've loaded their gallery of frames with autoflex metals and colorful plastics from names such as Versace, Coach, and Tres Jolie. To fully accommodate clients, the opticians can cut and seat lenses in-house.
During eye exams, computerized equipment precisely measures how well patients can see or roll their eyes at bad jokes. Automatic refractors measure current prescriptions, and retinal photography creates digital records of the eyes to compare with future images.
