Nearsightedness impairs one’s ability to drive, read, and make the crucial distinction between truth serum and chocolate milk. Guard your secrets with this Groupon: for $25, you get $100 toward eyewear and services at Optical Outlet.
For more than 50 years, the optometrist and experienced staff at Optical Outlet have enhanced eyesight with a stockade of name-brand frames and sunglasses. For patients with prescriptions, stylish vision-boosting and UV-blocking frames from 50 designer brands—including Coach ($150+), Juicy Couture ($150+) and Vera Wang ($75+)—vanquish peeping problems and unflattering comparisons to Ben Franklin. Customers can apply the value of this deal to an eye examination, though they must also purchase a pair of glasses or lenses. Like puppies, prices vary by style and can range anywhere from free (with prescription) to $350.
After 50 years in and around the eyecare business, Optical Outlet owner Shelly Droz is as well versed in attractive frames as any art dealer. Shelley grew up watching first her father, then her mother operate a wholesale business for frames and lenses for doctors in Pennsylvania, leading her to eventually take the reins next to her mother. Now operating her own business, Shelley builds upon her family’s legacy by offering vision services as well as the designer frames and lenses for which her family is known.
Inside the shop, licensed optometrists check clients’ visual acuity and overall eye health before writing prescriptions for lenses. Clients can then peruse the shop’s selection of designer eyeglasses and sunglasses from top brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, Ogi, and Dolce & Gabbana. After an average of two–four weeks, they can pick up their new prescriptions and finally realize they’ve been wearing shoeboxes instead of shoes.
