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, $40 for $100 worth of frames and basic lenses at The Hour Glass, with locations on Timberlane Road and Lafayette Street.
The Hour Glass has been aiding local eyes for 25 years. Highlighted in 20/20 optical magazine and ranked the best eyeglass store in the city by readers of Tallahassee magazine, the designer eyeglass boutique currently has more than 2,000 frames on display. Notable nose windows from designer brands such as Coach, Silhouette, and Nike are available ($100–$250), in addition to simplified value frames (starting at $44). True to its name, The Hour Glass readies most specs within an hour's time and, per store policy, closes whenever the sand reaches the ceiling.
