Lord Eye Center's showroom currently boasts thousands of frames from over 30 designer lines. Its refracted selection has expanded over the past 30 years under the direction of Lord Eye's founder, Dr. R. Whitman Lord, who is vice president of the Georgia State Board of Examiners in Optometry. His staff of certified optometrists can straighten a distorted reality typically within an hour, using the on-site optical lab and privileged access to the Matrix's source code. Bringing some panache to impaired pupils, the Lord Eye Center carries a plethora of frames from designer brands such as Candies ($128+), Harley Davidson ($128+), Guess ($168+), and Nike ($198+). Single lenses ($69+) discipline myopic peepers into long-distance focus and bifocals ($99+) render both newspapers and stop signs comprehensible.
