Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.

Since 1982, the family behind Contacts and Specs has outfitted eyes in a slew of designer frames and contact lenses.

The knowledgeable staff helps clients to navigate through neat rows of designer frames from brands such as Ray-Ban and Mont Blanc. A curtained-off area lined with damask wallpaper, curvy, white mirrors, and whimsical lighting provides a discreet place for clients to try out frames or reenact favorite fashion montages.
