Eyeglasses are an elegant marriage of form and function, much like a Frank Lloyd Wright building or a laptop computer that eats flies. Get a fashionable yet practical pair of peepers with today's Groupon: for $20, you get an eyeglass exam and $150 toward eyeglasses or lenses at Eye Roc, owned by Erker's Eyewear (a $269 value).

Open since 1879 and boasting a history that includes outfitting legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh with goggles, the family-owned Erker’s Eyewear continues to supply customers with stylish boutique spectacles. A 30-minute eyeglass exam inspects eyes for signs of optical illness, determines an ideal prescription, and calculates the precise level of squinting necessary to achieve Bruce Willis-ness. Eyes in need of enhancement can browse Erker's assortment of designer frames from brands including Coach, Gucci, and Eye Roc ($100+), as well as traditional frame styles ($39+), fitted with lenses in varieties including single-vision ($80). Friendly and knowledgeable staffers are on hand to help customers choose face-flattering frames or help untangle prospective models from grabby eyelashes. This Groupon is also valid toward an additional 20% off nonprescription eyewear and requires an extra $50 fee for contact-lens exams.

Eye Roc Eyewear

In 1927, thousands of feet above the Atlantic, Charles Lindbergh was shielded from the elements only by the Spirit of St. Louis' thin linen covering. His eyes, though, boasted much sturdier protection on that historic flight—a custom pair of goggles designed by brothers A.P. and August Erker. More than 80 years and four generations later, the Erker name still stands behind high-quality optics.

Jack Erker Jr., great-grandson of August, presides over the business's two present-day locations, which have also played their part in adorning famous eyes. During Jack's tenure, Will Smith, John Goodman, and Shaquille O'Neal have all stopped in to swap needlepoint tips and grab a pair of stylish frames, which are sourced from Italian and German design houses, as well as his own manufacturing division, Studio Optyx.
