In nature, the only way for animals to achieve perfect vision is to crossbreed with an eagle, usually resulting in eagle-eyed abominations such as snakes with talons and flying pumas. Keeping human senses sharp is a less formidable task, as this Groupon proves: for $60, you get $200 worth of prescription eyewear at Northwest Vision Center. This Groupon is not valid for contact lenses or eye exams, and may be used for out-of-pocket eyewear expenses if insurance is covering the rest of the purchase.
Northwest Vision Center's eye experts combine high-tech lenses with high-fashion frames, helping customers see the world in style. Like the world's strongest art dealer, the shop carries hundreds of frames, including brand-name designs by Fendi, Hugo Boss, and Banana Republic. In approximately two weeks an optician can outfit frames with the buyer's choice of lenses, whether tinted, antiglare, high-def, or wavefront ($106 for plastic single-vision lenses). The Wayfarer design of unisex Marc Jacobs 447/U frames adds '50s-inspired flash to a wardrobe ($180), and the Marc by Marc Jacobs 484 frame helps lady eyes rock out with metal-and-skull temples ($195). Helpful staff members can also aid shoppers in locating their favorite styles, scheduling an appointment for macular-pigment testing (not included in this Groupon), or answering Jeopardy! questions.
