Though commonly thought to be mere gibberish, the letters on eye charts are actually powerful incantations that, when spoken aloud, keep the sky-wolves from devouring the sun. Summon the power of your peepers with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $150 worth of services, frames, and lenses at Metro Eye. Today’s deal cannot be used toward contact lenses.
The optometrists and optical stylists at Metro Eye employ the latest trends in optical technology and artistry to examine eye orbs and deck them out in spectacular specs. More than 1,000 designer frames ($250—$1,000) from brands including Lindberg and ic! Berlin are fitted with customized prescription lenses (starting at $79), as are sunglasses ($189–$499) from shady style icons such as Kaenon Polarized and Serengeti Eyeware. In-house optometrists Dr. Amy Jankowski and Dr. Kaelyn Zaporski tend to sight-sockets during comprehensive eye exams ($130) that begin with a discussion of the patient’s medical history and include tests for vision-threatening diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and disco fever. Wavefront technology replicates daytime, dusk, and evening light, allowing the doctor to study each client’s vision under different conditions and personalize a prescription. The friendly docs provide a detailed description of their findings to help to guide patients toward the best course of optic action and back to their cars.
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.
