Douglas J. Lavenburg, M.D. leads a team of optometrists that oversees the welfare of patients’ eyes and vision with up-to-date optometric techniques. But their services extend beyond eye exams, vision correction, and LASIK surgery. Microdermabrasions, pulsed-light hair removal, and Botox revamp complexions, and facials sprinkled with Obagi professional skin products, keep wrinkles at bay.
Headed by veteran ophthalmologist and LASIK surgeon Dr. Frank Owczarek, Eye Care of Delaware fixes faulty vision in a welcoming and attentive environment. Patients begin their ocular odyssey with an initial one-hour consultation to evaluate whether they’re eligible for LASIK. Unlike a staring contest with a stuffed leopard, the surgery itself takes less than one hour, starting with eye-numbing drops to ease discomfort and a detailed, computerized mapping of the eye for high-precision surgery. During the procedure, a powerful laser reshapes the tissue of the cornea, changing the eye's shape to better focus light on visual receptors. Most patients report an uncomfortable pressure during the process, though the sensation is generally mild.
Vision Source Philadelphia’s network of boutiques and optometrists’ offices protects patients’ vision with exams and eyewear. Each location’s optical experts care for eyesight with treatments such as laser vision correction, glaucoma diagnoses, and emergency care, as well as assessing prescriptions. Then, galleries grace nose-bridges with frames from brands such as Ted Baker, Gucci, Dior, and Armani.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
