Stanton Optical may be a new player in the optical industry, but its founder, Daniel Stanton, is an old hand. He brings more than 30 years of ocular expertise to the company, driving its commitment to quality and affordable service. In Stanton Optical's lobby, long walls of mirrored racks hold more than 5,000 frames and sunglasses from top designers such as Dior, Gucci, and Armani. Stanton’s board-certified optometrists use some of the latest in optical technology to keep prescriptions up-to-date, and an onsite laboratory allows experts to assemble all glasses on premises. Customers can even watch their glasses being put together and taught to read in real time through the lab’s spotless glass walls. The clinic guarantees satisfaction on all frames; customers may bring back any new frames within 30 days to exchange them for a new pair.

Dr. Richard Blue of Blue Laser Group has been in his patients' shoes. A specialist in refractive surgery, he underwent a procedure himself in 1991, and so can personally relate to the trials his patients go through and talk to the leaps in technology that have been made since then. He performs Lasik services with a Wavelight EX 500 laser, with many patients able to return the next day to regular activities. Besides Lasik, Dr. Blue and his team perform routine eye exams and treat eye diseases.

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.
