Eyeglasses correct vision, make people look more intelligent, and—when worn upside down—enable a dormant wad of gray matter in the brain to control the Hubble Telescope. Unleash your satellite-wielding capacities with today's Groupon: for $60, you get $200 toward prescription glasses, plus 20% off an eye exam (if needed) at Grandville Optical, located in downtown Grandville.
Grandville Optical optimizes eye health and happiness by utilizing the latest technologies and carrying an array of high-end specs sure to accommodate the function and fashion needs of each client. Peepers become magnets for praise and shielded from bumblebees when wearing frames by designers including Columbia ($175–$210), Elle ($160–$195), Saks 5th Avenue ($175–$195), and Scott Harris ($165–$190). Nondesigner frames are also available, starting at $130, and lens offerings range from single vision plastic ($80) to progressive plastic ($276).
Although customers may bring existing prescriptions written by other providers to Grandville Optical, this deal also includes 20% off an optional eye exam, wherein staff optometrist Lori Smolinski will inspect the eyeballs and determine their needs prior to frame selection ($75 before discount). After frame fitting, completed pairs of glasses with lenses are typically ready within 7–10 days, at which time clients must adapt to acknowledging chatty coworkers on the bus.
The team at Grandville Optical do more than care for eyes—they also care about their community. When owner and certified optician John Schlafley and optometrist Chad Jackson aren’t examining eyes or crafting glasses, they are organizing food drives and serving in local organizations. That same warm spirit fills their optical boutique, where they tend to clients in a welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere. They display their carefully curated selection of designer frames—which includes names such as Marc Jacobs, Kliik, and Europa International—in elegantly spotlighted cases that stand against exposed brick walls.
While the office sports the cozy feel of a traditional coffeehouse, Schlafley and Dr. Jackson stock the environs with decidedly modern technology. They advise patrons of the latest advancements in lens manufacturing and treatments, and perform exams to diagnose potential issues and keep eyes healthy. Schlafley is also trained in a specialized soldering technique that allows him to expertly repair metal frames crushed by excessive squinting.
