Like hardboiled detectives, prescription lenses clear up blurry mysteries and frequently end up framed. Focus on the facts with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get an eye-care package at English Bay Eyeworx (up to a $335 total value). The package includes:
- Comprehensive eye exam (up to an $85 value)
- $250 toward a full set of lenses and frames<p>
Dr. Nicholas Catchuk, English Bay Eyeworx’s resident opticians, draws from his years of experience in primary care to evaluate eye conditions and outfit faces in modern, retro, and sophisticated frames. During a comprehensive exam, the ocular guru administers a Snellen chart test and looks through equipment to peer deep into eyes until they finally blink out their prescriptions in Morse code. The eye-focused session also helps diagnose conditions such as glaucoma and corneal disease. Customers can then pick out a complete pair of designer frames and lenses priced at $250. To help decide on new headgear, clients can turn toward a split screen to see four side-by-side images of their face sporting different frames. Knowledgeable staff members help shoppers choose from specs such as rose frames from Ice and gold-coloured frames from Hugo Boss that will turn the head of every nearsighted Superman in town.
Though English Bay Eyeworx sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

English Bay EyeWorx
At English Bay EyeWorx, Dr. Nicholas Catchuk helps patients overcome the anxiety of undergoing eye exams by spelling out each step of the process. He channels his more than 10 years of experience in checking for ailments such as glaucoma and corneal disease and answering questions that range from “is dilating my pupil necessary?” to “why do I light fires when I squint?”
After Dr. Catchuk establishes prescriptions, the crew of opticians helps patients peruse rotating displays of frames by designers such as Versace and Headline. Patients can simultaneously model up to four frames on a split-screen viewer, helpful for comparing which eyewear flatters faces the most or which set of eyes blink first.
