Eyesight correction was popular among ancient Romans, who toted brick-heavy specs to gladiatorial contests to catch a glimpse of mascots catapulting togas into the crowd. Assess the modern version of vision with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get $150 worth of optical products at Vincent Optical in Kitchener.
Vincent Optical's owner Vincent Afrouzi and his staff of skilled frame fitters keep their lab onsite, so that customers can get their new goggles in around an hour. Frames hail from Gucci, and Dior ($90+) and can be easily fitted with Nikon and Zeiss lenses ($99+) augmented to reduce glare or display everything in Terminator-vision. Most contact-lens prescription types ($45–$109/box) also take around an hour to process, much like a philosophy professor's knock-knock joke. Vincent Optical shields sensitive corneas, even ones without the need for vision correction, from detonating suns with sunglasses brands such as Liberty Sport, Serengeti, Bolle, and Guess.
Vincent Optical's registered opticians fit frames to heads from a selection of dozens of brands, including names such as Oakley, Gucci, and Ray-Ban. They nestle lenses—from reading glasses to prescription cuts—into the frames, or prescribe boxes full of contact lenses, readily available in their store. They also sell sunglasses, excellent for protecting eyesight from harmful radiation and correcting the vision of those who have trouble looking cool.
