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 27 locations in Indiana, Wisconsin, and Illinois. This Groupon is valid at all Wisconsin Vision, and Heartland Vision stores. 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.
