At its three locations in Harvard Square, South End, and Jamaica Plain, the Eye Q Optical team works to outfit clients with original frame styles. Most designs are its own innovations, manufactured in-house with inspiration from iconic eras and modern designers visiting from a far-off future. The Aphrodite frames play subtly on traditional cat-eyed styles, and the Apollo frames accentuate faces with bold rectangular shaping and primary blue colors.

The Eye Q Optical team also carries frames by artistic independent makers including Rapp Eyewear, who hand-finishes its colorful frames in Toronto, and Rolf Eyewear, who manufactures frames and hinges entirely out of wood. In the Cambridge office, the Eye Q opticians collaborate with digital 3-D-fitting technology and a highly opinionated robot to select the perfect frames for each client.

Dr. Samir Melki is a board-certified ophthalmologist who has performed thousands of corrective eye surgeries (including one on Baseball Hall of Famer Jim Rice) and authored three textbooks on the subject. Before receiving the vision-enhancing surgery, Dr. Melki will examine your eyes to determine your eligibility for the treatment. (If you are ineligible, you will receive a full refund.) There are some important things you should expect before, during, and after surgery, and the FDA recommends refraining from wearing contact lenses two weeks prior to surgery. After the surgery, you'll get all the follow-up care you need to guarantee success. Call ahead to schedule a consultation.
