Eyes, when not treated well, may retaliate by drying out, blurring, or leaving for a more attentive face. Keep eyes blissfully enamoured with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get $250 worth of eyewear in-store at Skeye Optical in Richmond.
Skeye Optical retails designer eyewear frames and lenses in an energetic environment committed to edging and mounting each eyepiece to perfection. Vision wearables are fine-tuned by Skeye’s on-site optician, who dons more than 15 years of eye-catching experience, often preparing lens-frame sandwiches in less than an hour if the chosen pair is in stock. Arm ocular orbs with fully coated antireflection, antiscratch, and UV-protected progressive prescription lenses (from $190) with instant-shading Transitions technology (from $240). Or, opt for fully coated single-vision prescription lenses ($70) that snuggle into the sockets of Guess and other name-brand frames (from $170), allowing new owners to take the guesswork out of approaching people or inanimate objects for polite conversation. Embarking clients can test the acuity of new prescription-fitting eyewear on the five-minute walk to Aberdeen SkyTrain station or through the ample parking lot. The store is open late (until 8 p.m. all week) leaving no excuse for optically challenged vampires.
At Skeye Optical, those in need of glasses or a fresh disguise can peruse a wide range of stylish frames from high-end brands including Prada, Chloe, Oakley, Markus T, Ray-ban and Versace. Knowledgeable staff members are on hand to steer patrons toward the right prescription and look.
