$99 for $300 Toward Designer Glasses
The shop’s selection includes frames such as turtle-shell frames from Masunaga ($390). Quirky round gold-and-brown frames from Kala ($225) have a modish vibe, and rectangular frames from Bevel ($525) are available in a variety of colors. Clients can also book an optometry exam when redeeming their Groupon.
Unless you’re a connoisseur, you might not recognize some of the brands at Visage Eyewear. The staff there searches far and wide for quirky labels, curating a unique spread of frames in their combination optometry and art-gallery space. The names of designers such as Bevel, Theo, Chrome Hearts, and ic!berlin adorn modish round spectacles, futuristic tinted shades, and tortoiseshell glasses with an air of wisdom. Beneath the energetic paint swirls of local artists, the in-house optometrist, Dr. Mila Ioussifova, can help clients find their prescription. The staff then waits to show them exciting frames that veer from the standard selection of dull plastic and tied-together telescopes.
