When stranded in the wilderness, glasses can help you convert sunbeams into fire or look smart as you explain the inedibility of man to a family of grizzly bears. Equip your eyes for the Great Outdoors with today's Groupon: for $50, you get an eye exam (a $75 value) and $200 toward prescription lenses and frames at Eye See Optical (a $275 total value).
The dedicated professionals at Eye See Optical have been decking ocular orbs in custom sight enhancers for more than 20 years. Eye See’s on-site optometrist, Dr. Mark Appel, appraises each client’s unfocused eyeballs, gauging their degree of near- or farsightedness, level of astigmatism, and sensitivity to questioning before prescribing a proper lens package ($130+). Clients are then free to choose from a panoply of stylish lens scaffoldings, including frames from designers such as Kazuo Kawasaki, 2.5 by Eyephorics, and SwissFlex ($119.95+). Like a choose-your-own-adventure novel full of mad libs, everything in the store is customizable, including one set of frames that can be made into 400 different shapes alone.

He stocks his shop with an mélange of eyeglasses, sunglasses, and actual coke bottles from designer brands such as Oakley, Italee, and Kazuo Kawasaki. He and his staff can also conjure up custom frames for customers overwhelmed by the store’s selection of more than 400 styles.
