Every day, eyeglasses prevent myriad awkward interactions—from tripping on a blurry sidewalk to taking the wrong child home from soccer practice. See the world in 20/20 with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $175 worth of frames and prescription lenses at Wisconsin Vision at a total of 34 locations in Indiana, Wisconsin, and Illinois. This Groupon is valid at all Wisconsin Vision, Heartland Vision, and Eye Boutique stores, including the Appleton locations on Koeller Road, Casaloma Drive, and Johnson Street in Fond du Lac. See the sidebar for a complete list.
The expert opticians at Wisconsin Vision fit lens-wearers with sharp prescription lenses and chic frames, including metal, plastic, metal-and-plastic hybrid, and memory metal. With more than 200 frames priced at $79 or less, eyesight-achievers can embellish their new specs with crystal or rhinestone studs, or stick with designer-brand eyeglasses from brands such as Coach, Polo, Nike, and Lacoste. The 20- to 30-minute framing also includes the installation of prescription single-vision Zeiss lenses ($60+). A Teflon clear coat (available with most lenses; pricing varies) eliminates reflections and the accumulation of bacon grease, and scratch coating ($25) protects lenses from aggressive keys and porcupines. Other upgrades include transition lenses ($99) that fade between clear and sun-ready shades, taking wearers from cosmic bowling to sunlit sword battles without a blink.
