In the words of the late Dr. Daniel Messinger, whose daughter and granddaughter now helm Philadelphia Eyeglass Labs, “We’ve been doing this for 100 years—we must be doing something right.” Overseen by the fourth and fifth generation of family that founded the company in 1888, the sense of history carries over into its opticians’ daily practice—they’ve been seeing many of their clients for decades, and bestow fast emergency services upon them whenever a client damages a lens or tries to stretch their frames to fit a family portrait inside. The personalized attention heaped upon each customer shines through in the services provided, which include technicians that grind and surface all lenses on-site in the flagship location’s lab, often fitting them into frames for next-day pick-up.
Dr. Paul Vernon, the LASIK board-certified ophthalmologist at Family I Care, has performed thousands of refractive surgeries in the past 20 years—even his children have had their vision corrected under his skillful hands. When not wielding a laser, Dr. Vernon also plays the role of general eye doctor, outfitting squinters with glasses and contacts or banishing cataracts from cloudy eyes. His expertise with dry-eye conditions caused by staring at computer screens and kissing benevolent air conditioners has earned him a venerable reputation in treating symptoms such as redness and itching.
Campus Eye Group and Laser Center's veteran doctors and consulting ophthalmologists have been addressing ocular needs for upwards of a quarter century, performing more than 100,000 eye-care procedures to sharpen vision safely and precisely. The experienced staff remedies such vision-related maladies as glaucoma, corneal issues, and cataracts, and helps patrons regain unclouded sight like a teacher with a strict no-kaleidoscope policy. Campus Eye Group voluntarily maintains accreditation from the AAAHC to earn each client's trust and confidence in the staff's abilities.
Led by Dr. Harmon C. Stein, the six physicians at Total Eye Care can handle almost any aspect of ocular care, from laser vision correction to eye muscle surgery for adults or children. Dr. Stein alone has performed more than 10,000 refractive procedures in his more than 25-year career and can personally attest to the benefits of LASIK surgery––he's had it himself. Of course, with better vision, patients might begin to notice pesky veins or wrinkles that never bothered them before. Luckily, Total Eye Care can handle those too: the doctors here are well trained in all sorts of cosmetic procedures, from Botox and skin tag removal, to permanent makeup, which can be custom-blended to match the patients hair, skin, or any hat permanently affixed to their head.
At Your Eyes Center, Dr. Milla Batushansky keeps a watchful eye on patients' visual acuity and helps combat ocular diseases. During examinations, she seeks to educate patients about eye health, from how to alleviate dry eyes to why laser beams burst forth from their retinas when they're angry. Dr. Batushansky specializes in pediatric optometry, contact lenses, and management of ocular diseases, but the breadth and depth of her services cover LASIK and corneal refractive therapy. After comprehensive eye exams, patients can explore a selection of hundreds of frames that add an air of sophistication to wardrobes and librarian conferences.
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.
