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 $39, you get a comprehensive eye exam (a $155 value), plus $50 toward frames and lenses, at The Landings Eye Care.
The Landing's Dr. Maria Gutierrez and her trained staff identify vision problems and outfit clients with frames that are in tune with the latest trends. Preliminary tests—such as reading a distance letter chart—examine for basic visual acuity, depth perception, peripheral vision, knowledge of the top baby names, and light sensitivity. A phoropter and retinoscope combine confusing nomenclatures to evaluate the focusing power of each eye before an external eye examination checks the corneas, eyelids, and surrounding tissue for signs of infection. Upon exam completion, a staff member will discuss possible areas of concern, recommend a care plan, and comment on how each patient's sweater complements his or her corneas before presenting a chance to purchase discounted frames from designer eyewear architects such as Marc Hunter ($124+), Seventeen ($134.99+), Nine West ($149.99+), and more.
The Landings Eye Care
A woman arrives to pick up her new glasses and gasps audibly once she puts them on, amazed at how crisp and distinct objects suddenly become. According to the manager of The Landings Eye Care, this is the reaction that his crew strives for with every patient. During each eye exam, his wife and her staff strive to spend ample time with patients to understand their concerns and explain their ocular conditions. To this end, staff schedule appointments at least 45 minutes apart to give clients extra personal attention and ensure little-to-no waiting time, which is often spent doing eye-straining activities such as watching a basketball game on a cell phone or crying over the results of a basketball game. After the exam, patients are escorted to the fitting area, where a specialized crew gives the patient a tour of the myriad frame options lining the warm wood shelves, helping them select the most flattering options for their face shape. This team keeps updated on latest trends, meeting with vendors every two months to uncover the newest bestsellers.
