The most coveted level of vision is 20/20, which means peepers can correctly identify 20 out of 20 typos on the optometrist's eye chart. See errors clearly with today’s Groupon: for $36, you get $200 toward prescription eyewear at House of Vision Optical, located in University Marketplace on the University of British Columbia campus.
House of Vision Optical’s certified optician adorns eyes with custom-fit prescription lenses and a vast array of designer frames. At the in-house lab, sight-enhancing specialists dip standard lenses ($85+), which options available at an additional cost including anti-glare, scratch-resistant, and UV-protected coating to shelter eyeballs from the sun’s self-righteous glares. After selecting the appropriate corrective eye armor, patrons browse the boutique’s numerous shelves lined with assorted frames ($120+) and prescription sunglasses ($120+). House of Vision Optical boasts an ample number of spectacles designed by high-end labels such as Versace ($270+) and Burberry ($260). Most single-vision jobs take about an hour to complete on-site; specialized orders can take up to 10 business days, or roughly the same amount of time as a visit to the DMV.
