Like trophies, eyes should be regularly polished, engraved with your accomplishments, and proudly displayed in glass cases. Encase winning winkers with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $200 worth of eyewear at Union Square Eye Care on Park Avenue South in Union Square.
Union Square Eye Care pampers peepers with a chic selection of frames from more than 20 designers. Single-vision lenses encircled by Prada frames ($320+) adorn snouts with style, and Giorgio Armani frames featuring transitions lenses ($425+) allow time-traveling wearers to move seamlessly between night and day. Nondesigner frames with single-vision plastic lenses ($191+) or single-vision sunglasses ($200+) are available for those in search of style without the surname. Protect juvenile eyes from the haziness and gray areas that should be reserved for adulthood with kids' Flexon frames with polycarbonate lenses ($325+). A variety of treatments are available to upgrade lenses, including premium antiglare coatings that assist visual clarity and discourage birds from unfortunate rendezvous with windows to the soul.
A licensed optician is on hand to advise sight-seekers on various photo-chromatics and coatings. Union Square Eye Care can fill current prescriptions from outside doctors, as well as provide on-site optical exams (not included in today's Groupon). Located in a renovated 7,000-square-foot loft between Union Square Park and Gramercy Park, Union Square Eye Care boasts a technologically advanced office, comfortable waiting areas, free WiFi for waiting customers, and views of Park Avenue South ideal for testing recently revised vision.
