Clearer vision makes for easier reading, fewer bruises from bumping into furniture, and no more mistaking tax collectors for long-lost pets. Hug with certainty thanks to today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $150 toward a complete pair of prescription glasses at Optiks International's two Calgary locations.
Optiks International's resident opticians create glamorous glasses from up to 7,000 on-site designer frames and Essilor lenses. Brands such as Ray-Bans, Gucci, Coach, and DKNY ($230+ all) mingle among the packed racks, and Ice Cream frames ($165+) enhance eyes with more style and less stickiness than silver-dollar-pancake monocles. Most frames can be fitted and ready to free eyes from pesky blurs within one hour. Transitions lenses maintain ocular comfort indoors and out ($85), and any lens can finally shield itself from owl talons or errant DJs thanks to a scratch-resistant coat ($30–$113).
Blurry vision is not just an annoyance; it’s a health risk. Optiks International makes it easier for customers by decreasing the time between an eye exam and getting new glasses. Independent Optometrists inside Optiks International's stores offer the convenience of one-stop shopping and create custom-fitted single vision, progressive, and googly-eye lenses. The on-site labs constantly seek out the latest technologies to improve vision, such as digital lenses that decrease peripheral distortion, and custom cuttings that alter lenses to accommodate the tilt of certain frames.
Each store stocks a supply of up to 5,000 frames, including options from designer brands such as Gucci and Versace. Every store also offers a two-for-one deal for each pair of prescription glasses sold, allowing customers to give a pair of glasses to a family member or pair their purchase with prescription sunglasses to avoid darkening regular specs with a whiteboard marker when leaving the house.
