Custom Eye Care
Corralled by crisp, dark wood borders, display cases full of designer spectacles from Ray-Ban, Fendi, Gucci, and Christian Dior glitter under bright hanging lights at Custom Eye Care at the Rim. These designer frames, which can be customized with specialty materials and coatings such as HD panes by Zeiss, adorn the faces of Dr. M. Elaine Vlasak's patients after she conducts an eye exam. In addition to helping patients achieve clear vision with glasses, the doctor, who speaks Spanish, English, and Sea Horse, gives LASIK consultations and diagnoses glaucoma, diabetes, and cataracts. When she's not treating eyes, Dr. Vlasak is teaching at the UIW School of Optometry.
