Camille's Closet adds a touch of feminine-chic sparkle to outfits with its bevy of accessories. The boutique sells clutches, statement necklaces, and a signature line of nail polish in classic colors and unusual shades such as teal and plum. Even though Camille's Closet started off as an online shop, it recently launched a showroom location for customers who want to see the items in person or who can't access the website because the C fell off their keyboard. The showroom's loft location is also home to glamorous events, including photo shoots and trunk shows.

Husband and wife team Andy and Gazal Tabrizipour started Atlanta Vision Optical because of dissatisfaction with the low-quality lenses they’d found elsewhere. “When typical one-hour shops make lenses,” explains Andy, “they add the non-scratch coating afterward, which tends to peel and come off.” Rather than adding the coatings onto the surface of the lens, Atlanta Vision’s own private lab custom crafts each lens with the coating blended into the material itself. The scratch-resistant properties then become part of the lens.

Inside the boutique, guests meander among shelves of frames from brands including Hugo Boss, Chanel, Tom Ford, and Sama. Soothing music and aquamarine walls give one the feeling of having wandered into a spa or the relaxing room that scientists have to keep Mothra in. Mahogany-trimmed furniture cradles patrons, who sip coffee or tea or chat with opticians and specialists about frame design. The team is trained in-house, and their style-savvy eyes can also select frames befitting each individual’s facial shape or proclivity to whip off sunglasses and shoot a suave glance straight into the nearest camera.

Within the onsite optical lab at each Eyeworks location, opticians perform virtually any act of optical alchemy, whether forging new bifocals, mending bent or broken frames, or glazing lenses in protective coatings that cut down on glare and scratches. Armed with a knack for style, opticians cull from the stores' collection of designer frames—including popular models from Dakota Smith and Lafont and exclusive lines from Soho and Okki—to match each customer with a look to suit their personality and facial structure. Before either can get to work, however, optometrists conduct comprehensive eye exams, helping patients maintain healthy, focused vision by honing new prescriptions and diagnosing potential diseases such as cataracts or early-onset googly eyes.

Ansley Eye Care’s trained eyebrarians pair customers with designer eyewear and sunglasses to suit both bookish looks and Dewey Decimal System–rejecting lifestyles. Designer frames provide couture window-boxes to the soul, with names such as Gucci, Prada, and Marc Jacobs parading over ears and nose bridges like supermodels stranded on a head-shaped planet ($95+). Kate Spade and Banana Republic frames equip eyes with chic peeps, and Ray-Ban’s and Roberto Cavalli’s signature styles help wearers to communicate a devil-may-care attitude toward pillow tags and junk mail. Ansley Eye Care also offers durable plastic prescription lenses, ensuring that customers will be able to admire their reflections with the utmost clarity ($99+).

Dr. M. Farooq Ashraf mastered the excimer laser as a member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins University, and he now wields the ultramodern tool as he adds to his career tally of more than 35,000 LASIK procedures. As founder and medical director of Atlanta Vision Institute, he draws upon his skills as a board-certified ophthalmologist to correct nearsighted, farsighted, and astigmatic vision with refractive surgery. In addition to giving the gift of sight, Dr. Ashraf gives back to the community by supporting local charities and providing discounted services to financially strapped Cyclopes.

Dr. Leonard R. Achiron graduated from the New England College of Optometry with honors, but he’s not just book smart—he’s also laser smart. Dr. Achiron has co-managed more than 50,000 Lasik procedures as former professor of the Emory Eye Center and clinical director of Lasik Vision Institute. Like him, each of his colleagues on the center’s team of ophthalmologists has performed tens of thousands of eye surgeries, alleviating ailments ranging from nearsightedness and farsightedness to cataracts. At their clinic, they also pool their talents to treat eyes with nonsurgical services, such as exams, contact-lens fittings, and glasses for those who never took to their lessons on how to squint harder.
