When stranded in the wilderness, glasses can help you convert sunbeams into fire or look smart as you explain the inedibility of man to a family of grizzly bears. Equip your eyes for the Great Outdoors with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $200 toward a complete pair of prescription eyeglasses or sunglasses at Nuccio Optometrists in Bloomingdale.
Experienced opticians guide peepers through a multitude of lens choices and designer frames from the likes of Nike, Calvin Klein, Prada, and Coach. Patrons generally receive around 30 minutes of one-on-one consultation to arrive at ideal single-vision shades, bi- or trifocals, or 360-degree fly-vision goggles. Coach sunglass frames ($175) wrap frontispieces fashionably, and silhouette frames ($325) defer to facial lines by simply holding lenses by their edges. Single-vision ($109) and progressive-bifocal ($232) prescription lenses can be cut to fit any frame, and tinting ($20) and polarizing ($80) services add further protection from photon paparazzi. A sleek, modern office space presents specs in tastefully lit displays and boasts an on-site optical lab to ascertain and update patients' vision needs.
For more than 25 years, Drs. Blinstrup and Nuccio have tended to the needs of eyes with examinations and healthcare services. When they aren't fitting peepers with custom contact lenses, they treat eye diseases and infections. Symptoms such as pain, sudden vision change, and flashes of light often require urgent attention, which is why the duo remains on call for such emergencies. Their studio shelves—nestled amid bright green and yellow walls and an exposed corrugated-tin ceiling that imparts an urban loft vibe—brim with glasses and sunglasses from brands such as Giorgio Armani, Coach, Calvin Klein, Nike, and Prada. Technicians sculpt single, bifocal, and trifocal lenses in the onsite optical lab and buttress them with protective coatings. Nuccio Optometrists also employs special contact lenses to reshape corneas and, once clear vision is achieved, equip blinkers with retainer lenses that are worn at night. This process eliminates the need for LASIK surgery and spares eyes the embarrassment of wearing ugly metal braces.
