What You'll Get


Eyesight 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 to Dinkytown Optical, located near the University of Minnesota campus. Choose between the following options:

  • For $40, you get $250 toward a complete pair of eyeglasses or prescription sunglasses and an eye exam.
  • For $20, you get $120 toward a complete pair of eyeglasses or prescription sunglasses.

Dinkytown Optical's licensed optometrists dress naked faces with a bevy of ocular outfits, featuring more than 1,000 frames from brands that include Kenneth Cole, Gucci, Kate Spade, and Hugo Boss ($90–$395). Before outfitting soul-windows with face-hugging frames, chronic squinters can book an appointment for a complete eye exam and refraction ($120). Both custom single-vision lenses (starting at $30) and digital progressive lenses (up to $385) are available to help prevent eyes from mistaking Grandma for a coat rack.
