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 $40, you get $150 worth of optical goods and services at Ultra Vision Optical Center in Levittown.
Ultra Vision Optical’s Dr. Jason M. Bart uses the most starship-compatible technology to peer deep into patients’ ocular orbs and determine a prescription that transforms the world from an impressionist painting to a Blu-ray disc. Treat corneas to an eye exam ($65+) or contact-lens exam and fitting ($130+), during which Dr. Bart thoroughly inspects the windows of the soul for an encyclopedic array of ailments, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, naturally occurring x-ray vision, and allergies. A full exam and fitting takes 45 minutes to an hour.
Afterward, inquisitive eyeballs may wander over to peruse the vast selection of frames ($49+), as well as a plethora of lenses (50+) augmented with antiglare coating (85+); UV-resisting, shatterproof polycarbonate ($95+); and built-in windshield wipers and defrosters for rainy days. Pair lenses with a Gucci chassis for a sophisticated look, or eliminate bifocal lines with progressive lenses ($199+) in snazzy Shrek frames. Transitions lenses ($125+) blend sunglasses and glasses, and a six-month supply of contacts ($95+) conceals your swirling, hypnotic pupils for another half year.
Ultra Vision Optical
For Dr. Jason Bart, Optometry isn’t just a career, it’s a family legacy. His father, Dr. Arnold Bart, founded Ultra Vision Optical in 1974 when Jason was just five months old. Growing up around the office, Jason was inspired to follow in his father’s footsteps, even attending his father’s alma mater, Pennsylvania College of Optometry, before joining his dad on staff in 2000. Today, he stands at the helm of the established practice, bringing modern updates that include computer vision analysis, LASIK consultations, and the latest styles.
A specialist in multi-focal fits, Dr. Bart performs all eye exams and contact fittings in-house, checking overall eye health while testing for diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy with the brand new OPTOMAP equipment. He then lets patients loose in the showroom, offering guidance as they choose from a selection of 1,500 frames that includes styles from top brands such as Michael Kors, RayBan, and Gucci, and a large selection of children's frames are available as well. The shop also stocks a range of contacts to fit clients' needs, and with a on premises lab same day service is possible. Blue light prevention lenses are also available for protection against the strain of computer screens.
