Surrounded by lavender walls, sporting an herbal neck wrap, and sipping on coffee or tea, visitors to Distinct Vision often wonder whether they've stumbled into a spa. Dr. Julia Emery encourages the misconception—she hopes that her patients view their eye-care appointments as a time for relaxation, as well as an opportunity to cultivate their sense of style. She's arranged the boutique area of the office to reflect crisp and quirky fashions. Frames from independent designers perch on glass shelving alongside those of prominent brands including Prodesign and Bebe. The artistic displays incorporate textbooks as props, and decorative plants inject the violet space with playful greenery.

In the exam room, Dr. Emery devotes as much attention to precise prescriptions as she does to hip decor. She checks peepers for general health, common ailments, and infections, doling out glasses and contact lenses for optimal sight enhancement. She can also handle most minor emergencies, from pink eye to the removal of foreign objects and the buildup of tears caused by unrequited crushes.

The board-certified ocular experts at Hill Country Eye Center sharpen vision with LASIK and PRK outpatient procedures to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. After greeting patients with a consultation and a series of coded blinks to set them at ease, the LASIK procedure begins with a laser creating a circular flap on the surface of the cornea. The doctor folds the flap back to allow a cool laser to reshape the cornea, refocusing entering light in a process designed to vastly improve vision and eliminate the need to wear contact lenses and socket-size crystal balls. Alternatively, PRK applies the laser's sculptural powers directly to the surface of the cornea, with no need to cut a flap. Patients can click here to learn more about the procedure.

Patients who dread the pupil-dilation portion of an eye exam?the vision-blurring eye drops, light sensitivity, and general discomfort?have an alternative at Parmer Eye Care. They can relax as an Optomap laser retina scan takes a digital photo of the back of each eye, which an eye doctor then checks for issues. The images are saved for future reference and customers can receive a copy via email. Prescription in hand and confident about their eye health after the optometrist's thorough, careful evaluation, patients can browse through a wide selection of eyewear.

At ClearChoice EyeCare, Angela Adkins, OD, doesn't just use the latest technology to care for patients' eyes. She also donates her talents to worthy causes. Dr. Adkins has called upon her extensive training in areas such as ocular disease, diabetic retinopathy, and pediatric vision care while working as a volunteer optometrist in Oaxaca, Mexico, and at charitable events for the Lion's Club and St. Louis Community Services. She has also worked as a caregiver for people with physical and mental disabilities, and as a volunteer with the Special Olympics.

After submitting their peepers to Dr. Adkins's careful examination and browsing the store's selection of more than 1,100 frames, patients can wait while technicians in the onsite finishing lab complete same-day orders for glasses. The center also features a separate waiting area complete with toys and a television to entertain children and pacify cranky adults who refuse to share their blocks.

Mann Eye Institute and Laser Center's specialists demonstrate a skill and efficacy that earned their work a nod from Goldline Research which named the center one of the country's leading LASIK providers for three years in a row. People and cyclopes from all across the nation come for treatment from proficient doctors and certified surgeons, who use FDA-approved Allegretto Wavelight lasers to correct vision. Before the procedure, patients must undergo a complimentary consultation to determine their candidacy and favorite tunes to blast on the stereo during the procedure. During the blade-free procedure, a certified surgeon reshapes the cornea to match the patient's specific prescription. Patients can expect to return to their normal tasks the day after the procedure and swing by the center a week later for a brief post-op checkup and eye-strengthening Magic Eye book.
