Choose Between Two Options
- $39 for $220 toward a complete pair of prescription frames and lenses or a complete pair of prescription sunglasses
- $49 for an eyeglass exam and $175 toward a complete pair of eyeglasses or compete pair of prescription sunglasses (a $233 value)
For eyeglasses, single-vision lenses start at $103, and frames from brands such as Zimco, Via Roma, and Easy Street start at $79.95. With an existing prescription, most glasses are prepared within one hour in the onsite lab. Alternatively, with the second option, the eye exam results in a new, accurate prescription.
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 the Springfield location, where Drs. Kostelnik and Gericke—known as Drs. K and G around the office—draw on more than 60 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 to navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Armani, Nine West, Eddie Bauer, and Nicole Miller. They also help to focus the world with contacts from Acuvue, allowing cyclops to throw away their anachronistic monocles and fit in with the 21st century's hip, nonprescription spyglasses.
