Though there are 130 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. Owned and operated since 1972, when a small group of friends started it in Philadelphia, aiming for quality eyewear manufacturing as well as customer service. These same friends, aided by a few family members, still lead the franchise today. They ensure that each location adheres to their original principles and mandates for mustard-colored shag carpets.

In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, D&G, and Versace. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses?whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites?they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.

At each AmeriLaser Center and AmeriCosmetic Surgery Center in Des Plaines and Downers Grove, experienced laser technicians and aestheticians, under a team of supervising doctors, take time to listen to each client?s skincare needs. Building this rapport helps the staffers to craft custom treatment plans that may include non-invasive procedures like laser hair removal, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers, as well as invasive procedures like liposuction, breast augmentation, face lifts and tummy tucks. Their most celebrated treatment may be noninvasive skin tightening, which uses bipolar radio frequencies and magnetic pulses to help to firm lax skin caused by aging or extreme weight loss, and it has earned ringing endorsements from The Biggest Loser winner Michael Ventrella, WWE pro wrestler Lisa Marie Varon, and a cherry tomato that sat untouched in Elvis Presley?s fridge for years.
