After graduating with honors from the chemical-engineering program at Vanderbilt University, Dr. Alette Howard Davis earned her optometry degree and became the on-staff eye doc at Insight Vision Center. Skilled in both pediatric and geriatric care, the doctor takes her patients’ whole-body health into account whether she’s addressing allergies, glaucoma, infections, writing a spectacles prescription, or offering post-op care for surgery patients. She also offers designer glasses and sunglasses, contact lenses, and lenses that can prevent the eye strain associated with using computers or watching the DVD player in the car next to yours.

Though SEE Eyewear’s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a-kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop’s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn’t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.

Single-vision lenses ($90+) and progressive lenses ($150+) can be enhanced with an antireflective coating ($90) to ward off wasted minutes pondering the true meaning of The Real World, or endowed with a solid tint ($20) or polarized lenses ($80) to protect baby blues from the sun's harsh glare.
