One day I was feeling especially daring and I bought a Groupon for someone to poke at my eyeballs. But now that it’s said and done, consider my corneas happily caressed.
The Groupon was a great deal – $79 for an eye exam + $150 off of frames. I don’t have vision insurance so I was all over this. And obviously I yelped the bejeezus out of them and only found positive reviews. So I called and booked an appointment with a pleasant employee.
The location is convenient for me, close to work and though it’s just street parking, there are always vacant free spots in front. The shop is decorated mindfully and it feels very homey but professional. My Optometrist was cool. He was young and friendly, though shaking his hand was like holding a wet noodle. Well I guess I’d rather have a wet noodle than a stick in my eye. The exam was quick and painless. Well, actually void of any feeling because he put the numbing dye into my eyes. He didn’t tell me about the numbing part at first, so don’t panic when you think that the drops have given you two lazy eyes that are about to die and fall out of your head.
After the exam, we got right to the fun part – picking out frames. Teri was a great associate and it was like playing dress up with yo face. I told her my preferences and she flitted around like the frames fairy she is, finding me trendy potential. I settled on these awesome green tortoise cat-eye glasses (come at me, Lisa Loeb) and the transaction with my Groupon was easy. All of my options and the bill itemization were thoroughly explained and sent to my email. If I have any questions or concerns, I feel totally comfortable giving them a call or showing up, yay!
