You only get one pair of eyes, which is why the doctors at Vision Boutique take such care to treat them well. The office is owned by the doctors themselves, allowing them to take ample time to care for everyone who comes in seeking help with their vision. In turn, they and their staff choose eyewear from designers who value fit and precision—as well as style—such as Paul Smith, Ray-Ban, and Zero-G. The office's environment also reflects the team's dedication to sleek aesthetics with sharp lines and dark wood furniture. An acid-green accent wall holds up a mirror where patients check how frames fit or whether their ears need lowering again.
VibeWear.com’s founders had a vision—give the people swagger-bestowing sunglasses without emptying their wallets. With that in mind, designers set to work crafting UV-shielding eyewear from retro-inspired wayfarers to classic aviators. Despite their low prices, they still construct the frames from high-quality components, such as stainless-steel hinges and lenses that resist scratching or shattering when at the opera. Some models also come in polarized versions to cut glare. VibeWear.com’s designers also apply their skills to clothing and accessories, such as T-shirts, slap watches, and hooded sweatshirts.
Situated on the cusp of downtown Chicago, West Loop Eye Care caters to the ocular needs of patients of all ages. The clinic’s team of highly trained doctors—Helen, Malgorzata, and Neil—begin appointments with a thorough examination, measuring visual acuity by asking clients to read letters off a chart or find Waldo at a distance of 3 feet. From there, they fit the farsighted and near sighted with the appropriate lenses, be they contacts or spectacles set in designer frames by Prada, Gucci, and Versace. No matter the lens, West Loop Eye Care can create them onsite in their very own lab.
Dr. Jordan Jones and his duo of fashion-conscious opticians, Gregory and Joseph Winjum, foster ocular health with comprehensive eye exams, and if necessary, outfit patients with the proper prescription contact lenses and glasses. Both the Chicago and Orland Park locations feature shelves neatly stocked with designer frames from brands such as Paul Smith, Tom Ford, Oliver Peoples, ic! berlin, and Prada. The wide selection of eyeglasses ensures that clients can find the appropriate styles to suit their face shapes, lifestyles, and superhero alter egos.
In 1930, Dr. Joseph Rosin and his brother, Maurice, opened a small shop on Cermak Road in Cicero. In 80 years, the shop has grown from a small family-run optometrist's office to a regionally renowned business that has sharpened the eyesight of celebrities such as Joe DiMaggio and Plácido Domingo and left its mark on the Chicago area by designing famous symbols such as Harry Caray's trademark glasses and the novelty shades that adorn the John Hancock Center. Today, Rosin Eyecare rests in the hands of the third generation of Rosins, ably helmed by brothers James and Jonathan, who continue a proud tradition of warm, personal service as they improve eyesight with high-tech LASIK and PRK treatments as well as stylish eyeglasses with scratch-resistant lenses. At 16 locations, including the newest office Long Grove, a staff of optometrists keeps optical orbs in high function with comprehensive exams, treating each patient's individual needs with products such as a contact-lens implant or a prescription safety eyewear.
Touch has the power to heal, as the therapists at Chicago Touch know all too well.
