At Glenmore Landing Vision Center, a trio of eye doctors spearheads a merry band of opticians and lab techs capable of constructing a new pair of glasses in one hour. In the on-site lab, they cut lenses to fit a selection of more than 1,000 frames, including brands such as Boss, Dolce & Gabbana, and Fendi. The visionary staffers advise clients on matching frames to face shapes and determining if their eyes are grey-blue or blue-grey.
Glenmore Photo’s employees not only custom-frame pictures in-house, they can take the pictures themselves during portraiture services. Jacks of many trades, they can also transfer video from outdated mediums to DVD, and can design and print everything from business cards to banners.
