The retainers that help fix crooked teeth have a lesser-known cousin?Signature Eye Care's overnight vision correction retainers. They look and feel much like contact lenses, but patients only wear them while they're sleeping. Over time, the retainers reshape the cornea, slowing or stopping the progress of nearsightedness.

And that's just one of the ways the eye-care team, led by optometrist Dr. Jonathan Knutson, helps patients see more clearly. They outfit folks with prescriptions and chic glasses, with frames from Coach, Kate Spade, and David Yurman, among other designers.
