Board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Abdul Khaliq brings more than three decades of experience to every pupil he dilates and every cornea he inspects. As part of his private practice, he performs both routine eye exams and in-office surgeries. These include treatments for cataracts and glaucoma, as well as cosmetic procedures to tighten droopy lids and open third eyes for the first time.
With more than 386 locations dotting North America, JCPenney Optical's ubiquity is matched only by its extensive selection of contact lenses and designer frames that includes brands such as Armani Exchange, Liz Claiborne, and Nicole Miller. Despite this wide reach, all lenses are cut at the same optical laboratory, ensuring a consistency of quality and a pretty good idea of where to look if your glasses run away from home. Each location has an independent state-licensed doctor of optometry, who can perform vision exams and help clients determine which type of vision correction will work best.

Since placing a pair of glasses on the bridge of its first customer’s nose in 1970, the Marci family has outfitted generations with chic frames and discrete contact lenses. Matt Marci, along with his wife, Lorraine, continues to uphold his parents’ dedication to customer service at Windsor Optical, and maintains an inventory of eyewear that appeals to a number of styles and tastes. Within the cheery tangerine-hued walls of the shop, sparkling cases house frames and sunglasses from brands including Ray-Ban, DKNY, and Gucci that create stylish gazes. A collection of extended wear, disposable, and regular daily-wear contacts culled from a variety of trusted brands ensure undetectable vision repair. Once a month, Windsor Optical invites a licensed optometrist into the shop to perform onsite comprehensive exams that screen for all manner of ocular malady, from cataracts and glaucoma to permanent Magic Eye.
Finding the perfect pair of glasses that complements both your face and your style can be tough, which is why the dedicated opticians at The Vision Shoppe offer a personal touch when working with each client. After they help customers select the most flattering pair of frames from a selection brands that includes Ray-Ban, Taylor Madison, Easy Clip, Italia Mia, and Juicy Couture, they customize glasses in their onsite workshop. Here, the opticians personally grind the lenses and even perform basic repairs, adjustments, and cleanings when necessary, which especially comes in handy for mud golems.
