Like algebra quizzes and "I Love Mon" tattoos, vision often requires correction. Rectify eye issues with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $120 toward eyeglasses with a premium antiglare coating and a two-year scratch-coat warranty (a $129 value) at Colonial Optical in Kirkland (a $249 total value).
Colonial Optical has pampered peepers for more than 35 years, stocking high-end frames and quality lenses with a CR-39 base. An on-site lab, manned by Dr. Trinh T. Nguyen, ensures that lens/frame pairings relax comfortably on faces. Flatter the face with fashionable frames ($79+) from brands including Junction City ($99), Tuscany ($100), and Cole Haan ($240). Read books, see street signs, and decipher coded skywriting more easily with Colonial's lenses, which come in single-vision ($70), bifocal ($120), trifocal ($135), and progressive ($267) versions. An antiglare lens coating keeps the sun from antagonizing motorists, pedestrians, or synchronized swimmers who insist on wearing glasses in the pool. Colonial's two-year warranty allows visionaries to breathe easy, ensuring that scratches don't interfere with their ability to view people, landscapes, and clones trapped inside mirrors.
Dr. Kavita Bansil, O. D. believes that sight is a right; it's what first drew her to humanitarian work. During trips both locally and internationally, she’s worked to restore and protect the vision of those who might otherwise be at risk. She brings the same commitment to ocular health to her practice, where she treats every patient with custom fittings and thorough examinations. After Bansil susses out new prescriptions, patients can peruse the office's array of frames. Stylish street-wear frames from brands such as Ray-Ban, Burberry, Polo, and Cole Haan encircle high-quality lens material in polycarb, transition, and progressive forms, and custom sunglasses and sports eyewear protect vision during outdoor activities such as scaling a mountain or challenging a campfire to a staring contest. Thanks to Colonial Optical's onsite lab, technicians can modify glasses to patients' exact needs and specifications or repair damaged pieces quickly and effectively.
