In nature, the only way for animals to achieve perfect vision is to crossbreed with an eagle, usually resulting in eagle-eyed abominations such as snakes with talons and flying pumas. Keeping human senses sharp is a less formidable task, as proved by today's Groupon to Eye Designs, located in Merrillville, Indiana. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get a complete eye exam (a $99 total value).
- For $50, you get $150 toward prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses.
The professional visionaries at Eye Designs see to ocular health while also attending to mid-face fashion with a variety of designer frames. Give struggling eyeballs an intelligent look with frames from such sharp brands as Ted Baker ($150), Genevieve Boutique (Rene frames, $120), or Gucci 2769 Strass ($300). A pair of Nike Veer ($149) or Fendi 5092 sunglasses ($344) renders bright days crisper and shadier than an apple from a Disney villain. Near- and far-sighted customers can also fill frames with a choice of basic and advanced lenses, such as the SV lens ($100), polycarbonate lens ($115), and SV Transition lens ($155). Eye Designs' experts can help determine what lens type will work best for each customer depending on ocular health, lifestyle, and eye strain from staring at heavy objects.
Alternately, patients of all ages can receive an exam from optometrist Dr. John Czaja. The comprehensive eye exam (a $69 value) evaluates visual function, effects of daily demands on the peepers, and any signs of ocular disease. The appointment ends with a dilated fundus exam (a $30 value), in which the doctor employs eye drops that enlarge the pupil in order to view the inner health of the patient's eye.
