Being able to see clearly can prevent simple daily errors, such as shampooing with condiments and proposing to the wrong mannequin. Avoid embarrassing hairdos and stiff dance partners with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a comprehensive eye exam ($99 value), plus $150 toward prescription glasses, at Eyes Nouveau (a $249 total value) in Fort Worth and Southlake.
Eyes Nouveau's opticians employ the latest in eye-care technology, running tests and procedures to assess visual acuity before outfitting peepers in stylish new eyewear. During the comprehensive exam, computerized instruments analyze the eyes' interiors and exteriors, detecting vision problems, determining accurate prescriptions, and testing eyes' ability to blink in Morse code.
After that, customers wrap their eyes in sturdy new RayBan ($165) or Tiffany ($220) duds, or apply the Groupon's value toward top-flight frames by Lindberg ($480), Theo ($571), or Gold & Wood ($669). The selection also includes specs from famed designers such as Prada, Gucci, and Versace, outfitting visitors in blinkers that are both stylish and durable enough to protect eyes from finches mistaking them for berries.
Eyes Nouveau founder and president Dr. Ron Davidson, O.D. helms a squad of eye specialists armed with advanced technology and a wide selection of frames. With computerized instruments, the professionals peer deep into internal structures, then inspect the exterior of the eye for obstructions, such as still-affixed lens caps. The team also assists guests as they pair lenses with frames from such designers as Oliver Peoples, Tiffany, Bebe, and Ray-Ban.
