What You'll Get
Like hard-boiled detectives, prescription lenses clear up blurry mysteries and frequently end up framed. Focus on the facts with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $175 toward prescription eyewear at Union Square Eye Care.
Union Square Eye Care, a full-service ophthalmology practice, stocks its on-site optical shop with a spectrum of fashionable frames, including a large selection of kids' frames, for a range of budgets. Giorgio Armani specs with single-vision transition lenses ($425+) and single-vision Prada glasses ($320+) improve ocular performance and complement faces with chic, modern designs. Flexon frames for children ($325+) arrive with safety polycarbonate lenses, minimizing optical harm from run-ins with baseballs, bullies, or low-flying pigeons. Clients can also peruse a collection of label-free frames, with single-vision plastic lenses ($191+), single-vision plastic lenses with anti-reflective coating ($235+), or sunglass lenses with UV protection ($200+).
Union Square Eye Care's licensed optician assists vision questers as they select the perfect frames, which are then fitted with prescriptions garnered from outside doctors or in-store examinations, which are not included with today's Groupon. The eyewear emporium occupies recently renovated space in an airy loft between Union Square Park and Gramercy Park. Sleek cushioned chairs, soft sunlight, and complimentary WiFi ensure comfort as guests wait to retrieve their new pairs of spectacles, sunglasses, or x-ray-vision goggles.
While today's Groupon is not valid toward eye exams, Union Square Eye Care's ophthalmologists can provide customers with an up-to-date prescription for an additional cost, most insurance carriers accepted. To ensure the best customer service, call 212-844-2020 to schedule an appointment with Union Square Eye Care's optician.
