Before eyeglasses, people with imperfect vision had to walk around with magnifying glasses, causing others to confuse them for licensed detectives and leading to countless unsolved crimes. Crack the case of imperfect vision with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $125 toward a complete pair of prescription glasses, plus a free second complete pair of prescription glasses, at Optiks International Superoptical. This Groupon is valid at the 99th Street and Mayfield Commons locations in Edmonton.
Optiks International's committed team of opticians fits over 5,000 designer frames with a selection of prescription lenses. Single-vision lenses snugly slide into Tommy Hilfiger frames ($100+), and invisible bifocals sneak into Furla frames ($100+). Transitions lenses maintain ocular comfort indoors and out, and any lens can finally shield itself from owl talons or errant DJs thanks to a scratch-resistant coat. On-site finishing labs ensure precise assemblages of lenses and frames and one-hour turnarounds for most eyewear. Optiks International's laser-driven lens edger can subtly etch logos, names, or the text of the Magna Carta into lenses or cases. Complimentary repairs and nose pads are included, as is a second pair of glasses, with each purchase. Both prescriptions need not be identical, so customers can gift their additional eye-enhancers to farsighted friends.
Blurry vision is not just an annoyance; it’s a health risk. Optiks International makes it easier for customers by decreasing the time between an eye exam and getting new glasses. Independent Optometrists inside Optiks International's stores offer the convenience of one-stop shopping and create custom-fitted single vision, progressive, and googly-eye lenses. The on-site labs constantly seek out the latest technologies to improve vision, such as digital lenses that decrease peripheral distortion, and custom cuttings that alter lenses to accommodate the tilt of certain frames.
Each store stocks a supply of up to 5,000 frames, including options from designer brands such as Oakley, Gucci, Versace, and Ray-Ban. Every store also offers a two-for-one deal for each pair of prescription glasses sold, allowing customers to give a pair of glasses to a family member or pair their purchase with prescription sunglasses to avoid darkening regular specs with a whiteboard marker when leaving the house.
