Dr. William Ellis sharpened his corneal crafting skills at the side of Professor Syvatslov Fyodorov, the father of modern radial keratotomy, and has since completed more than 50,000 LASIK procedures in his career. With a keen focus on personal attention and individual patient needs, he performs every laser vision surgery at all six Ellis Eye & Laser Medical Center locations, relying on an armory of advanced technology to map eye terrain, correct vision, and prepare patrons to work as a chameleon’s parole officer. Further showcasing his knowledge on the subject, Dr. Ellis has written a medical textbook on eye surgery entitled Keratotomy Surgery for Myopia, Hyperopia and Astigmatism.

Though there are 130 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. Owned and operated since 1972, when a small group of friends started it in Philadelphia, aiming for quality eyewear manufacturing as well as customer service. These same friends, aided by a few family members, still lead the franchise today. They ensure that each location adheres to their original principles and mandates for mustard-colored shag carpets.

In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, D&G, and Versace. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses?whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites?they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.
