Though commonly thought to be mere gibberish, the letters on eye charts are actually powerful incantations that, when spoken aloud, keep the sky-wolves from devouring the sun. Hone eyeball mastery with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a comprehensive eye exam package at Rochester Optical (a $210 value). Today’s deal is good at Rochester Optical locations in downtown Rochester, Perinton, and Greece. The package includes:

  • An eye exam (a $60 value)
  • $150 toward prescription glasses or sunglasses

Rochester Optical's expert optometrists and opticians build on 65 years of experience to correct clients’ vision with lenses carefully shaped in on-site optical labs. During the exam, eye doctors peer into facial orbs with focused lights, then judge clients’ short- and long-distance visual acuity based on their ability to read eye charts and mosquitoes’ “Mom” tattoos. Doctors conclude each exam with a detailed assessment of vision issues and overall eye health. Based on the results, patients select prescription lenses ($60+) to pair with frames from designers such as Adin Thomas ($79+), Haggar, Versace, Oakley, and Cazal (up to $299), to form a harmonious vision-correcting team free from the unspoken tensions and two-person business suits of most partnerships. Clients can also upgrade to color-changing transition lenses ($99) or add antireflective coatings ($80), among other modifications.

Rochester Optical

Soon after Rochester Optical was founded in 1932, the staff established contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense to supply the armed forces with durable, combat-ready glasses. Today, they continue to specialize in military eyewear, along with high-performance sports and safety glasses and a huge selection of designer frames. A team of optometrists—which includes a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, a fifth-generation Rochesterian, and an eye doctor who has worked at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Salem, Virginia—performs comprehensive eye exams, and technicians manufacture lenses in an in-house, state-of-the-art optical lab. In addition to traditional single-vision lenses or no-line bifocals, they create digitally surfaced, free-form lenses that offer an expanded field of vision and minimize image distortion, allowing wearers to more clearly see apparitions standing next to them.

Customer Reviews

Rochester Optical and Dr. Roberts came highly recommended by a friend. My experience with Rochester Optical was a very positive one. Dr. Roberts cleared up some long standing issues I'd had that my prior doctor could not answer. He was kind, personable, patient & professional in addressing the many questions I had. The staff was terrific - all the same in description - in helping me through the process of choosing the correct eye wear, both glasses & contact lenses. I was so stressed by the time I found Rochester Optical, it was such a relief to have such great assistance in taking care of this part of my health care. I can't say enough good things about Rochester Optical!
