With the resurgence of 3-D movies, theatergoers everywhere are stealing the complimentary glasses in an attempt to experience the fabled third dimension in real life. Gain a clearer perspective of the world with today's Groupon: for $45, you get $225 toward glasses at Pearle Vision on North Rainbow Boulevard and at the Sahara Promenade. This Groupon is valid only for a complete pair of eyeglasses—frames and lenses—and cannot be combined with vision insurance or other promotions.
Started in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle, the nationally recognized and trusted franchise now operates in nearly 800 company and franchise locations nationwide. The master visionaries are well trained in assisting all bespectacled beings, from casual librarians to picky, temperamental cyclopes. Equip a corrective pair of basic frames ($69+), or slip on a pair of designer eye enhancers such as those by Anne Klein ($139+) and Ray-Ban ($149+), or high-end frames from Versace ($189+). Single-vision lenses adjust a singular field of vision ($89+), whereas specialty PearleThin complete lenses are lightweight heavyweights.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide, including four Las Vegas locations, where Drs. Kopolow and Girisgen draw on years of combined experience to assess the ocular health of patients no longer able to discern between aunts and ants in flowered dresses. In the store, opticians help customers navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. They also help focus the world with contacts from Acuvue, allowing cyclopes to throw away their anachronistic monocles and fit in with the 21st century's hip, nonprescription spyglasses.
