I.D. on Halsted in boystown is making over one lucky geek. Not an already sexy geek though. The modern lifestyle store just launched their first annual eyewear makeover contest hoping to give somebody the lookie loo they deserve. Submit a photo of yourself in your most embarrassing eyeglasses, the store will post it to their Facebook, and the entry to get the most likes will win an eyewear makeover. Your competing for a personal consult, complementary frames, single vision lenses, anti-reflective coating and a scratch coat. The contest is on right now through June 1.
