Eyeglasses correct vision, make people look more intelligent, and—when worn upside down—enable a dormant wad of gray matter in the brain to control the Hubble Telescope. Unleash your satellite-wielding capacities with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $150 toward frames, lenses, and sunglasses at Philadelphia Eyeglass Labs.

Philadelphia Eyeglass Labs pampers peepers with an enormous selection of frames and custom-crafted lenses. Priding itself on stylish vision solutions, the gargantuan gogglery boasts wall-fulls of designer-brand prescription glasses, sunglasses, reading glasses, and safety eyewear. Philadelphia Eyeglass's certified opticians consult with spectacle seekers to construct lenses with custom coatings, adding treatments including photochromic film and wedding-activated windshield wipers. Lenses are surfaced and ground by in-house technicians who pride themselves on same-day service, ensuring clearer winking is achieved post-haste. Prices will vary from pair to pair, but most frames with plastic single-vision lenses fall between $139 and $399, with additional costs for specialty lenses.


Though online reviews are still growing for some the Philadelphia Eyeglass Labs' locations participating in today's Groupon, seven Yelpers give the Arch Street location a 4.5-star average:

  • Where to start!? This place was by far the best I've been to yet! I walked in at 4:00 on a weekday afternoon, and had an exam, picked out new frames, and was ready to go within 30 minutes! – Briana M., Yelp, 1/25/11
  • Quick, super friendly, and affordable service - what more can you ask for.... I would say nothing. – jackie v., Yelp, 1/16/11

Philadelphia Eyeglass Labs

In the words of the late Dr. Daniel Messinger, whose daughter and granddaughter now helm Philadelphia Eyeglass Labs, “We’ve been doing this for 100 years—we must be doing something right.” Overseen by the fourth and fifth generation of family that founded the company in 1888, the sense of history carries over into its opticians’ daily practice—they’ve been seeing many of their clients for decades, and bestow fast emergency services upon them whenever a client damages a lens or tries to stretch their frames to fit a family portrait inside. The personalized attention heaped upon each customer shines through in the services provided, which include technicians that grind and surface all lenses on-site in the flagship location’s lab, often fitting them into frames for next-day pick-up.

I had a lot of assistance from Helen and she was fantastic. She stepped in when I asked for help but also gave me some space to figure out what I wanted for myself, which was the perfect balance.
