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 $30, you get $130 worth of eyewear at Optical Alternatives.
Glass gurus at Optical Alternatives craft spectacles at their very own facility, expertly adorning eyes with frames from a collection of more than 1,200. More than 20 countries and 87 brands cultivate Optical's glasses menagerie, which includes peeper-rims from France, Turkey, and the fashionably designed nations of Gucci and Coach (frames $99+). With the help of the expert staff, customers choose from any frames they'd like to hire as prescription- or UV-lens holders, sauntering out of the boutique about 45 minutes later with a new and personalized perspective. While Optical Alternatives does not provide eye exams, they can provide a referral if an exam is needed.
Optical Alternatives brings the world into focus with a selection of more than 1,200 frames from around the globe, leading Fairfield County Weekly readers to vote it the Best of Fairfield County in 2011 and 2012. The optical center’s technicians flatter faces with designs from brands including Coach, Gucci, and Miyagi, paired with lenses ground on the premises rather than by an unreliable local butcher. The center’s opticians, meanwhile, stand at the ready to update prescriptions and monitor ocular health.
