Like hardboiled detectives, prescription lenses clear up blurry mysteries and frequently end up framed. Focus on the facts with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get an eye-care package (a $245 value) at Southern Eyes Eye Care Center, with locations in Concord and Kannapolis. The eye-care package includes the following:
- A comprehensive eye exam (a $145 value)
- $100 toward eyeglasses<p>
Doctors Kirsten Albrecht and Catherine Earl of Southern Eyes interrogate ocular orbs with eye exams and outfit struggling eyes with high-tech lenses. The 45–60 minute appointment can diagnose common eye problems including glaucoma and cataracts and uncover underlying causes of vision loss, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or backward ski masks. Most exams involve dilating drops, but they can be circumvented with cutting-edge digital Optomap Retinal exams (a $39 additional fee). After the exam, eyeballs get the assist from cutting-edge ocular technology, such as shatterproof polycarbonate lenses—which use some of the thinnest high-index materials available—and Varilux progressive lenses that mask the telltale signs of bifocals, preventing civilians from guessing your alter-ego’s true age.
