A movie character who removes her glasses can transform from a nerd into a cheerleader, or from a girl who wears glasses into one who doesn’t. Metamorphose yourself with today's Groupon: for $59, you get an exam and two pairs of eyeglasses (up to a $250 value) or $250 worth of eyeglasses at I-Sight Optical in Astoria.
The peeper experts at the family-operated I-Sight Optical sharpen eyesight with thorough exams and a wealth of fashionable frames. A 15- to 20-minute exam helps the optometrist determine a prescription while testing customers’ pronunciation of such rare words as “E,” “FP,” and “FELOPZD.” Frames from Think, 4U, and Peachtree corral vision-correcting lenses, providing faces with chic new looks. One-hour service for many prescriptions makes obtaining sharp vision as speedy and enjoyable as watching an episode of 60 Minutes.
I-Sight Optical's professional staff offers examinations and an inventory of designer frames and resilient lenses that can usually be fitted with prescriptions in one hour. During optical exams, an eye specialist will assess visionary prowess to determine whether patrons could benefit from a new prescription or a lesson in phonics. Once sight has been tested, a staff member helps customers pick from fashionable designer frames for eyeglasses and sunglasses, or clear and colored contacts. Most orders are ready to adorn faces in an hour, and customers can swing by anytime lenses become lopsided or set on harnessing evil lasers for free adjustments and cleanings for the life of their specs.
