Nearsightedness impairs one’s ability to drive, read, and make the crucial distinction between truth serum and chocolate milk. Guard your secrets with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get $130 toward one complete pair of prescription glasses at Pacific EyeCare & Optical on Lowell Road.
Pacific EyeCare & Optical ameliorates the nearsighted and farsighted with a bevy of custom lenses embedded inside designer frames. Guess, Cole Haan, and Izod lead the boutique’s lineup of designer glasses ($99–$259), which attract favorable attention to the upper-cranium without having to wear a Trojan war helmet. Each ocular accessory comes fitted with single-vision plastic ($90), polycarbonate ($146), or mid–high index ($185-$229) lenses. Optical orbs can be embellished with no-line progressive bi-focals ($185), transition tints (additional $85), or glare-free lenses (additional $89) for easier reading in the sun or by the unreliably flickering light of a burning pile of Eat Pray Love Blu-rays.
