As the windows to the soul, eyes frequently find themselves revealing inner emotions, streaked with streams of water, or crashed into by confused birds. Shield your eyes from avian accidents with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get an eye exam and $150 toward the purchase of glasses at Vision and Hearing Institute, located in Covington (a $295 value).
Vision and Hearing Institute peeper technicians help eyes maintain optical integrity with their comprehensive eye exams and wide selection of newfangled frames. Exams commence as Dr. Silbernagel combs through case files that help better acquaint him with patients' medical history, visual needs, and risk for lycanthropy. Eyes then undergo a series of diagnostic tests designed to unmask glaucoma risks or retinal trouble spots, followed by a refraction to identify nearsighted or farsighted needs. Ocular evaluations conclude as the doctor pop-quizzes pupils on movement and tracking ability, binocular synchronization, and the role of sunglasses in the War of 1812.
Prescriptions in hand, clients contact Vision and Hearing Institute’s supportive staffers to help them choose frames that will best flatter facial features. Choose from a compendium of name-brand frames, then customize glasses with an overflow of options (single vision lenses with select frames start at $70+), including coatings that reduce scratches, reflections, and the effects of UV rays.
