Before the invention of sunglasses, rock 'n' roll musicians' trademark mystique was spoiled by constant, inescapable direct eye contact. Play it cool with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $100 toward the purchase of a pair of sunglasses at Lansing Ophthalmology, valid at nine locations.
The certified opticians at Lansing Ophthalmology fit visitors with a varied stock of prescription and nonprescription designer sunglasses. Encircle blinkers with stylish Oakley shades ($89+) or shield tear ducts while stomping onions for wine with a pair from Cole Haan ($115+). Single-vision sun lenses ($89+) let wearers speed-read sunsets with stunning accuracy, and cutting-edge lens designs from Seiko and Pentax rival the styles sported by Hollywood A-list talking dogs ($234+). Although this Groupon is not valid toward services, a staff of talented opticians—many of them certified by the American Board of Opticianry—is on hand to diagnose eyeball prescriptions. All sunglasses and lenses are insured by a yearlong workmanship guarantee, subject to an additional fee after 90 days.
