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 $50, you get an eye exam (a $99 value), plus $150 to use toward a complete pair of prescription glasses or sunglasses at The Contact Lens Centers. This Groupon is valid at the Dallas, Carrollton, and Richardson locations.
The Contact Lens Centers' posse of board-certified eye doctors keep peepers functional and fashionable with a number of services and specs from designers including Prada, Gucci, Coach, Nike, Ray-Ban, and more. During eye exams, a professional checks baby blues for signs of disease, muscle imbalance, sarcastic or flirty winks, and color-vision defects before determining an optimal prescription. Eyes also undergo an optomap retinal exam, utilizing advanced technology to explore nearly the entire retina via computer imaging rather than traditional pupil dilation.
After the exam, an experienced staffer can aid you in selecting frames ($99–$400) that best complement your face shape and personal style, with plastic, metal, flexible Flexon, and hypoallergenic titanium options. Wronged sights are righted with single-vision, bi-focal, and tri-focal lenses ($90–$550), enhanced by coatings, such as the anti-reflective finish, to ward off the sun's harsh glare or the constant camera flashes of the horde of paparazzi you hired to follow you around. New pairs of glasses are usually ready to warm the bridges of noses about 8–10 business days after exams.
