Like hardboiled detectives, prescription lenses clear up blurry mysteries and frequently end up framed. Focus on the facts with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $150 worth of eyewear at The Optical Gallery Shoppe.
Patricia Edwards helms The Optical Gallery Shoppe, channeling her 27 years of experience into meticulous custom fittings of high-end and casual eyewear. Edwards takes a thorough, old-fashioned approach to customer service, taking measurements of clients’ faces and archiving the info with parchment and quill. Browse the storefront’s array of frames, in conservative and trendy styles alike, with brands such as Calvin Klein, ProDesign, and Helium (about $40–$230). After shoppers select their design of choice, Edwards can skillfully shape lenses to correctly match a prescription. Single-vision (about $70–$100) and progressive lenses ($100–$400) can brandish an antireflective coating ($95–$100), which improves the lenses’ effectiveness and defends against laser-eye attacks from rival superheroes. Depending on clients’ preferences, fittings can last anywhere from 5 minutes during one visit to 90 minutes across multiple visits.
