With the resurgence of 3-D movies, theater-goers 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 $50, you get $200 toward glasses at Pearle Vision in Collierville. This Groupon is only valid 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 at Pearle are well trained in assisting all bespectacled beings, from casual librarians to picky, temperamental Cyclopes. A wide selection of frames includes the brow-bolstering styles of Anne Klein, Ray Ban, and DKNY ($100–$400). Prescription lenses flesh out frames with single-vision correction ($80) or bifocals ($100), enabling wearers to read both distant sandwich boards and the text tattooed on their noses. Progressive lenses allow for smoother transitions between fields of vision while concealing any visible lines on the lenses themselves ($200). Crafting a pair of personalized glasses consumes two to three business days of a diligent artisan’s time for single-vision lenses and five to seven days for bifocals.
