Like hardboiled detectives, prescription lenses clear up blurry mysteries and frequently end up framed. Focus on the facts with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $175 worth of frames, prescription lenses, and sunglasses at Philadelphia Eyeglass Labs. This Groupon is valid at the Center City, South Philadelphia, East Norriton, Glenolden, and Bensalem locations.

The peeper stylists at Philadelphia Eyeglass Labs lavish customers with individual attention to outfit irises in a diverse array of frames and lenses. Senior lab managers Darren and Percy craft lenses onsite in the lab's Center City location, allowing for quick turnaround. Technicians can fill frames by the likes of BCBG, Kenneth Cole, Nine West and Vera Wang (most frames $139–$399) with prescription, UV, safety, or reading lenses, which speak books’ texts aloud. Patrons can also commission specially designed lenses, such as ultra-light high-index lenses and photochromatic panes that change color according to their environment, making them an optimal choice for light-sensitive eyes or studious chameleons.

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 LOVE this place and I recommend it highly. The service was friendly and fast. Everyone took care to make me happy with my new glasses. I was shown many frames and I took my time to find just the right one. They even offered to check out ordering some frames which I might like to see for additional orders. Awesome!

Pleasant no pushy staff members. They allow you to browse their eyewear selection freely and will assist you we needed. Very nice experience.
