The first eyeglasses were crude, handheld devices developed in 13th-century Italy, nearly 500 years before Benjamin Franklin revolutionized the industry by famously inventing the human nose. Profit from the fruits of genius with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $200 toward a complete pair of eyeglasses at Fortney Eyecare Associates, redeemable at five locations in the Detroit area.

Since 1955, Fortney Eyecare has focused on keeping peepers comfortable and making faces fashionable with its vast array of stylish frames and lenses. Fortney Eyecare fields a team of sight specialists who help clients don spectacles suited to their specific tastes, needs, and desired levels of x-ray vision. Wrap visages in the latest frames, with budget lens-keepers ($89+) rubbing hinges with offerings from eminent face-casing companies such as Ray-Ban, Nike, Polo, and Nine West. Patrons can also strut the ocular catwalk with designer selections from Versace, Ralph Lauren, and Dolce & Gabbana. Single-vision lenses start at $79, with optional upgrades available in the form of transition and polarized lenses ideal for outdoor wear or free-form progressive lenses that enable wearers to quote Marxist poetry on command. Frame fittings typically take an hour or less, providing just enough time to bid adieu to your ex-specs while tidying up face space for the new guests.

Fortney Eyecare Associates

In 1955, the world saw many famous firsts: President Eisenhower hosted the first televised presidential news conference, Gunsmoke began its legendary run, and Fortney Eyecare Associates opened its first practice. Today, a quintet of locations hosts board-certified doctors of optometry ready to keep Detroit peepers healthy and focused. After thorough exams, patients can decamp to Fortney’s frame shops, which house designer eyewear from labels including Ray-Ban, Prada, Nike, and Versace.

In addition to general eyewear, the practice also specializes in safety eyewear, working with businesses to supply and repair the type of industrial eyewear that's best for each workplace or astigmatic traffic cones. The national administrator of General Motors' prescription safety eyewear program since 1992, Fortney was hailed GM’s Supplier of the Year for its no-nonsense professional chops.

Customer Reviews

Really happy with the prices. While the selection of men's frames seemed a little lacking, that seems to be my experience everywhere. Staff was friendly and helpful, and the doctor was friendly and very thorough. I had bought a Groupon for SVS Vision before, and the glasses from there ended up costing five times more!! Fortney all the way! Thanks!!!
