The core of Your Eyes Optical is its seasoned team of optometrists. Dr. Linda Anderson Jones and Dr. Robert Soulages boast nearly three decades of experience examining clients' eyes for visual acuity or illness. Optician Brandy Heddles, meanwhile, ensures frames fit properly and lenses are sculpted to the correct shape. She and her staff fit customers for designer frames by brands such as Calvin Klein, Legre, and Ray-Ban, which they fill with standard and progressive lenses in several styles.
Armed with just a single, generations-old cookie recipe, Great American Cookies opened its first store in 1977, and the rest is history. Today, the franchise boasts locations in malls across the country and nabbed a coveted spot on Entrepreneur magazine?s 2012 list of Top 500 Franchises in the baked-goods category. The shop?s reputation grew, and so did its menu as chefs churned out a mouthwatering roster of gourmet-cookie recipes, each created and carefully tested in Atlanta. The tempting options now include snickerdoodle, peanut butter with M&M?s, and chewy pecan supreme, as well as freshly baked fudge and cheesecake brownies and cookie sandwiches stuffed with frosting. The real showstoppers, however, are the giant chocolate-chip cookie cakes, which can be customized with sweet, celebratory messages or shopping lists penned in colorful icing.
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.
With a stylish selection and an expert team, EyeCare Associates stocks frames by designers such as Kate Spade, Nine West, Hugo Boss, and Guess. Comprised of doctors and eyewear specialists, the team can screen for eye disease, administer eye exams, fit contact lenses, and repair old frames.

Whenever possible, Cheek's Optical prefers to handle all of its patients' vision needs in-house. Dr. Burks?the office optometrist?and his team of opticians go beyond offering comprehensive examinations, diagnostic care, and visual-acuity tests. These professionals also use the on-site lab to create prescription lenses in as few as 60 minutes. Thanks to the lab's full range of surfacing, coating, and finishing equipment, the technicians can even make bifocal and progressive lenses with advanced Waldo-spotting capabilities. Once they've finished custom-designing lenses, the staff members can then assist patients by helping them select a pair of flattering frames from an extensive selection that includes options by designers such as Oakley and Versace.
