Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
Started in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle, this nationally recognized and trusted eye-care center now operates in nearly 800 company and franchise locations nationwide. The master visionaries at Pearle are well-trained in assisting all bespectacled beings, from casual librarians to picky, temperamental Cyclopes. They'll help navigate a nearly endless array of sight-enhancing options: house lines of simple, durable frames and lenses, designer frames from Versace and DKNY, prescription Ray-Ban shades, and contact lenses to suit the chemistry of even sensitive sets of eyes.
Dr. Martin E. Cutler’s more than 30 year career is defined by his mastery of new technology. In the ‘70s, he was one of the first area doctors to offer no-stitch cataract lens replacement. Today, he helps patients reduce their dependence on glasses with LASIK and makes reading glasses obsolete with conductive keratoplasty, the first FDA-approved procedure that sharpens one’s up-close vision and makes Moby Dick easier to understand.
Alongside Dr. Cutler’s opthalmology center stands a medical spa staffed by licensed aestheticians. With the aid of the Palomar StarLux system, they harness the power of intense pulse light to oust unwanted fuzz from anywhere on the body. They also pair facials with botanical Nelly de Vuyst products and deep-clean pores with PCA chemical peels, and offer free skin analyses to help patients find the best course of treatment or the best way to flaunt a Jay Leno–shaped birthmark.
Avant LASIK Spa forgoes the clinical and impersonal atmosphere of the standard doctor’s office. Instead, patients are greeted with a spa-like atmosphere, featuring leather recliners and plush couches in the waiting and recovery lounges, and a temperature- and humidity-controlled laser suite. Overseeing the relaxing office is Medical Director, Nilesh Sheth, M.D., who has a thirst for knowledge, a list of clients who trust him, and a hand steadied by years of practice. The board-certified ophthalmologist and surgeon has performed more than 12,000 laser vision-correction procedures over his career. His skills have drawn in everyone from a US Senator to a Celtics player, leaving each with the ability to leave their glasses at home unless using them to disguise their superhero alter ego.
The owners of The Optical View do their business of selling designer eyeglass frames in an aptly named city: Framingham, Massachusetts. The shop's curated collection of glasses and sunglasses boasts pedigrees to rival pampered Eukanuba champions, coming from brands such as Versace, Oakley, Silhouette, Gucci, and Ralph Lauren. Experienced staff members and qualified doctors perform eye examinations and hand-fit frames to ensure that each pair of glasses or contacts sharpens vision to its utmost ability.

More than 80 years ago, Jack Cohen started selling designer eyewear from a pushcart on Orchard Street. After eight decades, that cart has expanded into more than 100 storefronts whose frames runt the gamut from budget-friendly styles to designer specs from Versace, Fendi, and Calvin Klein. The expert staff helps clients match their glasses to their face shapes and lifestyles. Meanwhile, onsite optometrists dole out prescriptions and screen eyes for diseases such as glaucoma and cat cataracts, which make you only see cats.
