The optometry team at The Hour Glass takes the shop's title seriously. It's not called The 90-Minute Glass for a reason?the experienced staff creates custom, prescription glasses in just one hour.
That's not to say that they prioritize speed over quality. The staff's expertise and commitment to quality shows in their eye exams and precise prescriptions, as well as in the leisurely browsing they encourage. How else could customers choose from the shop's selection? There are 2,000 frames on display, including designer and brand-name styles, and excluding frames made of pretzel sticks.
At Palmer Eye Center, opthamologist and cornea specialist Dr. Richard M. Palmer performs surgeries. Dr. Palmer employs FDA-approved lasers during LASIK surgeries to correct vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. He also reshapes corneas with PRK eye surgery and replaces them entirely during corneal transplants. Whether the medical professionals are calibrating a fresh prescription or performing a procedure, they take a compassionate, individual-oriented approach.
The center’s medical spa caters to the skin surrounding eyes with frown line-fighting Botox injections and JUVÉDERM dermal fillers, which leaves skin smooth and free of evidence that its owner was once abducted by aliens for several minutes..
With more than 386 locations dotting North America, JCPenney Optical's ubiquity is matched only by its extensive selection of contact lenses and designer frames that includes brands such as Armani Exchange, Liz Claiborne, and Nicole Miller.

Each location has an independent state-licensed doctor of optometry, who can perform vision exams and help clients determine which type of vision correction will work best.
Born out of co-founders Todd Giatrelis's and Sarah Towne's frustration at hunting for a sandal shop amid the glitz of the Vegas strip, Flip Flop Shops helps customers free their toes with a one-stop boutique for comfortable sandals and shoes, quickly expanding across the nation with more than 30 locations. Owner Jason Swinford proudly strides his size 12 sandaled feet across the floor of his Governor's Square Mall shop, uniting visitors with stylish strapped footwear and sneakers from brands such as Flojos, O'Neill, Quiksilver, and Vans. Every aspect of the store is cultivated to convey a laid-back, beachy atmosphere, with a scent of suntan oil gracing the air, lively music playing in the background, and a distinct taste of salt on every surface.
