Located in Sears stores or at adjacent offices, Sears Optical's independent optometrists screen peepers to determine accurate prescriptions and diagnose any health problems. As doctors position a refractive device over the eyes, flipping through lenses of varying strengths, patients describe the level of clarity with which they can see the purple zebra dancing in the far corner. In addition to the prescriptive exam, doctors may use eye drops to dilate the pupil to scrutinize the retina.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car?it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.

The technicians at Auto Hail Pros draw from 15 years of experience to repair dents in automobiles with a process called paintless dent removal.

Developed by Colorado racecar drivers Denise Longwell and Christine Jerritts, the Wheels in Heels driving clinic aims to empower everyday women at the horseless helm. During clinics, highly trained instructors illustrate how to recover automotive control during all sorts of emergency situations, such as skidding, brake failure, and jaywalking chickens. Because the goal of the clinic is to prepare you for real-life collision avoidance, you'll learn to master the maneuvers from the familiar confines of your own car, although if you seek vehicle versatility or don't own a four-wheeled wagon, you can call ahead to see about reserving one of the event's sponsored chariots. Before you head to the racetrack for hands-on practice, you'll get to show off your fashionable footwear by throwing up your feet during a short classroom orientation.
