Unlike midterms and driving tests, eye exams do not include multiple-choice questions or deduct points for tripping over cones. Educate your eyes with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $150 worth of services, frames, and glasses lenses at Metro Eye located on North Water Street.
Metro Eye helps ocular idealists envision a clearer world through a variety of image-enhancing services and supplies. Each comprehensive eye exam begins with a medical history lesson, followed by a series of tests designed to diagnose corneal concerns and personalize prescriptions ($130 value). A skilled technician will employ state-of-the-art Wavefront technology, which simulates routine daylight, low-light, and police-flashlight conditions in order to assure the best vision corrections for each time of day. Once a retinal remedy is prescribed, patients may be fitted for frames from designers such as Lindberg, L.A. Eyeworks, and Eye Think Eyewear ($250+), each available with customized lenses ($79+). Choose from eye windows such as lighter lenses, reflection-reducing coatings, or Progressive Addition Lenses (PAL), which amend bifocals to seamlessly read small-print ransom notes.
At Metro Eye, Drs. Amy Jankowski and Kaelyn Zaporski strive not only to outfit their patrons with precise prescriptions but also to educate them about their overall eye health and proactively assess their ocular condition. The doctors' digital eye photography helps to detect any signs of ocular diseases and the hideout of renegade bands of eyelashes, and an epic refraction system maps corneal topographies for a highly accurate prescription. Located in the historic Third Ward amid charming brick buildings and geometric street lamps, the minimalist optical lounge’s contemporary interior provides a streamlined contrast to its surroundings. Natural light floods in through floor-to-ceiling windows, illuminating the built-in display shelves, which encase more than 1,000 designer frames waiting their turn to balance atop equally stylish noses. The optical stylists spend ample time discussing their art with each client, helping them to find frames that match their personal style while satisfying any parrots living on their shoulders.
