Proper eyewear is crucial for everyday tasks such as reading, driving, and manufacturing fake IDs for Barbie's kid sister. See every little detail with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $200 toward a complete pair of prescription eyeglasses (frames and lenses) at Wink Eyecare Boutique in Potomac, Maryland.
Dr. Rachel Cohn of Wink Eyecare Boutique, winner of Bethesda Magazine's 2010 Best Place to Buy Eyeglasses award, leads a team of optical experts in enhancing natural beauty with brand name frames that house quality lenses. Bolstered by a knowledgeable staff and unfailing third-eye detectors, shoppers browse an expansive selection of designer eyeglass frames. Designer brands including Juicy Couture ($225) and Nike ($199) dress up visages, while independent names such as Intrigue ($219) frame faces with subtle styles. Tech-savvy staff crafts most lenses ($149+) at the in-house lab using advanced technology, sending clients out the door with an eagle's vision and a rabbit's ability to identify carrot soufflé from across the room.
Wink's Dr. Cohn told Bethesda Magazine that she realizes the significance of glasses in making favorable first impressions, pointing out that "it's the first accessory that people notice. After all, nobody talks to your shoes or your watch." Though not included in today's deal, the experienced optometrist can also determine patients' necessary prescriptions and translate the eye chart's Swedish colloquialisms during a comprehensive eye exam.
