A full-service optical workshop, Clear Vision Express is powered by a team that can churn out new eyeglasses with eye-blink speed. Journeys toward clearer vision begin with eye exams with Dr. Anthony B. Kouchak. The 15-year veteran doc's specialties in LASIK eye-surgery referrals and hard-to-fit contact lenses are rivaled by his knack for perfectly fine-tuning prescriptions to eye irregularities such as astigmatisms and spontaneous eyelash brushfires.
Post-exam, friendly employees serve as frame sherpas guiding customers through a gallery of 1,000 different eyewear styles by upmarket brands such as Nine West and Nicole Miller. Clear Vision Express boasts an onsite lab that enables optical fabricators to speedily marry frame to lens and present new specs to customers in as little as one hour.
Each Eye Doctor?s Optical Outlets location is doctor-owned, uniting the staff with a common vision to sharpen sight and boost eye health. Eye examinations reveal prescriptions and uncover any other ocular problems. After patients choose a new set of lenses, the in-house technicians get to work crafting them in the shop?s own lab rather than sending them off to be made during a summer camp?s arts and crafts day. Sundry designer frames border eyes in looks from Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs to Nike and Harley Davidson, and there is usually a trio of technicians in the shop, enabling multiple clients to summon help with a single pigeon call.
High-fashion frames from Prada, Cartier, and Michael Kors line the walls at Absolutely Optical and Eye Trends. The 3,000 designer-quality frames in stock on any given day include an extensive selection crafted from long-lasting materials such as titanium, stainless steel, or virgin zyl plastic imbued with fade-proof color. Technicians wander through the shop, waiting to fit the frames with distortion-free sunglass lenses, the newest generation of antireflection lenses, or googly eyes so it seems like you are awake while guarding a boring art museum. For prescriptions, patrons can consult the onsite optometrist, Dr. Jay Weil, who not only tests vision but also bolsters eye health with procedures ranging from hydrating treatments for dryness to LASIK surgery.
Helmed by vision-boosting veteran Dr. Michael Lange, Lange Eye Care & Associates enhances on-the-fritz ocular orbs with a wide selection of fetching specs. The showroom furnishes frames ($69–$200) from popular brands such as Vera Bradley, Charmant, Claiborne, and Essence, attractively encircling eyes and lending wearers an air of wisdom only otherwise attainable by being friends with an owl. Lenses come in a range of styles and materials, from single-vision plastic lenses ($77+) to no-line bifocal plastic lenses ($285+), which correct sight with discrete dual prescriptions. Friendly opticians aid guests in their quest for the perfect pair of glasses, offering suggestions based on look, lifestyle, and professional need to whip off frames in baffled surprise.
Radiant complexions and healthy eyes go together like peanut butter and jelly, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, or chocolate and just about anything. Well, they do when it comes to the St. Cloud and Kissimmee Eye Centers and their adjoining RejuveRX Medspas, where a staff of committed professionals keeps clients both seeing and looking like they did in their youth with medical eye care and advanced aesthetic treatments. RejuveRX Medspa’s Dr. Ly T. Nguyen is the center’s surgeon and board-certified ophthalmologist, and oversees the spa’s medical procedures, from dermal fillers to the skin-resurfacing powers of a Fraxel Re:pair laser. Aestheticians focus on refreshing skin with microdermabrasion, acne treatments, and softly sung lullabies about sleepy pores.
