Suspended on scarlet walls lit by crystal chandeliers, designer glasses look right at home in a boutique manned by a trusty staff. Vision exams and contact-lens fittings begin the process of selecting these exquisite pieces of eyewear, which are crafted by lab technician Danny, also an optician. Staffers help patients find the best eyewear for their lifestyle and personality, taking note of whether they play sports or play roles in a lot of 80s film shopping montages.

Exotic fish waggle their fins at passersby from their aquarium at Fugu's Sushi & Wok, daring visitors to experience the ocean with all five senses. Yellow lights bathe dark wood tables in warmth as guests dive into fresh sushi, sashimi, and other cool treats. From behind the sushi bar, a skilled chef rolls and chops 60 types of maki and nigiri, including yellowtail hand rolls and two-piece bites of squid and octopus. Specialty rolls arrive accented by ingredients such as avocado, chili sauce, and white or brown rice and radiate more color than a rainbow trapped in a gumball machine. Warm Chinese entrees such as walnut shrimp and cashew chicken brim with earthy flavors, which pair nicely with the restaurant's selection of sakes and crisp white wines.

While many eye doctors stop at finding their patients' prescriptions and doing surface-level exams, Dr. Kenneth Garza of Complete Family Eye Care believes in going farther. Using the latest eye exam technologies, he ensures each patient's ocular health without the hassles and annoyances of traditional eye appointments. With his dilation-free Optomap technology, Dr. Garza peers into the inner eye, examining the retina for early signs of eye problems or diabetes. His glaucoma screenings eschew irritating air puffs for more comfortable testing methods while still effectively pinpointing possible cases of the disease.
Once guests have their prescription in hand, they can browse the wooden shelves of Dr. Garza's cozy retail area, searching out their dream specs amid dozens of fashionable choices.
