After Dr. Julia Emery checks eyes for glaucoma, cataracts, and overall health, she administers a test for the patient’s glasses prescription. Patients then browse the boutique’s selection of frames, which features designs from brands such as Jhane Barnes, Original Penguin, Prodesign, and Bebe.
Surrounded by lavender walls, sporting an herbal neck wrap, and sipping on coffee or tea, visitors to Distinct Vision often wonder whether they've stumbled into a spa. Dr. Julia Emery encourages the misconception—she hopes that her patients view their eye-care appointments as a time for relaxation, as well as an opportunity to cultivate their sense of style. She's arranged the boutique area of the office to reflect crisp and quirky fashions. Frames from independent designers perch on glass shelving alongside those of prominent brands including Prodesign and Bebe. The artistic displays incorporate textbooks as props, and decorative plants inject the violet space with playful greenery.
In the exam room, Dr. Emery devotes as much attention to precise prescriptions as she does to hip decor. She checks peepers for general health, common ailments, and infections, doling out glasses and contact lenses for optimal sight enhancement. She can also handle most minor emergencies, from pink eye to the removal of foreign objects and the buildup of tears caused by unrequited crushes.
