Dr. Bindal and his staff have been crafting limpid lenses and framing ocular regions with stylish goggles since 1999. During the 30-minute exam, technicians administer neurological and binocular evaluations to determine eyeglass prescriptions and hunt for such diseases as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and Medusa's gaze. While an army of animate hammers chisels each lens out of glass, eye experts escort guests through the showroom, where designer frames await. Apple Eyewear frames ($99 each), Gucci frames ($349 each), and ProDesign frames ($199 each) join forces with standard plastic single-vision lenses ($129) to give both superheroes and spies an adequate disguise.

Once clients choose their lens fences, specialists show them how to properly clean their new peeper protectors using nothing but a small cloth and a waterfall. If dilation is required, sight savants typically recommend scheduling another appointment and advise clients to make appropriate transportation arrangements.

A Visual Affair

With four eye doctors in his family, becoming a professional eye-wrangler was a perfect fit for Dr. Neeraj Bindal, an optometrist who combined his medical training with his business education to open A Visual Affair. At two locations, Dr. Bindal examines clients and fits them for contacts, glasses, and bowties mounted on eyelashes. A wide variety of lenses, including ultrathin panes by Zeiss, scratch-resistant lenses, and antiglare lenses nestle into frames by the likes of Lafont Paris, Gucci, and Giorgio Armani.
