What You'll Get
Designer eyewear transforms a cumbersome accessory into a fashion asset, like sword canes and diamond-encrusted shoe inserts. See clearly in style with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get $200 toward prescription frames and lenses at any of Kennedy & Perkins, Guild Opticians' five New Haven–area locations.
Voted the Best Place to Buy Eyewear in 2011 by New Haven Advocate readers, Kennedy & Perkins focuses gazes and outfits eyes in contemporary designer frames. Owners Richard Kennedy Jr. and J. Dart Messick keep up with the latest face-mounted fashions and airport vending machines by attending eyewear shows from Los Angeles to Milan. Drawing from nearly 1,000 designer frames on average, ($99+), staff frame stylists can suggest styles ideally suited to customers' facial features. For an additional fee, on-site opticians can appraise precise visual measurements and calculate eyeball-rolling dimensions for clients without prescriptions.
After nearly six decades in business, Kennedy & Perkins sculpts glasses with the most current light-bending lens technologies ($90+ for single vision), including new personalized progressive lenses, which are custom based on an individual's eye measurements, as well as trifocals to correct third-eye vision. The shop produces all prescription lenses locally at Kennedy & Perkins' optical laboratory in New Haven.
