With 40,000 LASIK procedures and 30,000 cataract surgeries under their belt, the team at Davis Eye Center has plenty of experience enhancing and protecting patients' vision. The center's board-certified ophthalmologists, Dr. Charles Davis and Dr. Allison Landes, serve as pioneers in the field, studying and implementing the latest techniques and technologies before other area practices. This forward-thinking approach surfaces most notably in the center's cutting-edge WaveLight and LenSx laser systems, which allow the doctors to perform corrective surgeries with greater speed, accuracy, and efficiency.
Davis Eye Center doesn't limit its services to surgical procedures though. The practice's team also includes opticians, registered nurses, technicians, and optometrists. With so much diverse talent available, the center is able to provide comprehensive care capable of addressing various vision concerns. Routine exams can determine prescriptions and scan for early signs of troublesome conditions, while personalized treatment regimens help manage the symptoms caused by everything from glaucoma to conjunctivitis. Davis Eye Center even stocks more than 2,000 frames by more than 50 brand-name designers, helping visitors boost their style and chances of being admitted to MIT with a new pair of glasses.
There's something about a spotless vehicle glistening in the sunshine that inspires a sense of pride. Perhaps it's a badge of success or perhaps it's the promise of freedom, but either way, Magic Touch Detailing's technicians understand. They've kept cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, and boats shining for more than a decade, hand washing fiberglass contours and dressing tires so that even their habitually dull rubber glows with a high-gloss shine. Before handing the keys back to expectant owners, they reinvigorate each ride with a three-step paint reconditioning and a generous coat of carnauba wax. When clients sink back into the driver's seat, they reap the benefits of steam-cleaned carpets, spotless glass, and dustless vinyl and leather. To expand beyond their in-shop work, Magic Touch's mobile personnel also tinker with vehicles in clients' driveways or at the bottom of the pits where the cars were accidentally "parked."

When he founded CrossFit Akron North, Josh Felber already knew that persistence was at the core of any athletic pursuit. He preached that philosophy to the many athletes and fitness newbies who visited his gym, and the idea took firm root between the pull-up bars and the climbing ropes. Today, the gym's staff includes eight coaches who, between them, teach CrossFit, CrossFit swimming, On Ramp classes, and personal training sessions. Rather than focusing on how big your biceps are or how far you can throw a harpoon from the rowing machine, each class focuses on overcoming your personal limitations?a touch that adds a competitive edge to the cooperative, community-focused workout.
Akron General Sports Performance has the most professional and experienced staff in northeast Ohio. The coaches specialize in teaching athletes proper biomechanics of speed, agility, strength and power, which allows athletes to compete at their highest level.
Voted No. 1 from 2209-2013 by the readers of the Akron Beacon Journal, Novus Clinic was born 20 years prior from board-certified ophthalmologist Todd L. Beyer and optometrist Jerry Sude’s vision for a one-stop eye-care facility. To bring this idea to fruition, they first recruited a neuro-ophthalmologist and a second optometrist to their team and eventually constructed a 3,800-square-foot surgery center in 1998. The state-of-the-art center was built in response to the voices they heard asking for laser vision-correction procedures such as LASIK and cosmetic treatments. Dr. Beyer, also a certified oculofacial plastic surgeon, began performing face-lifts along with noninvasive skin treatments after he found himself fielding queries from more and more patients about dermal fillers, peels, and laser hair removal.
With the expanding list of offered services, the clinic shed its original title, System Optics, and was reknighted Novus Clinic in 2003. The word novus, which translates to “fresh and exciting” in Latin, more accurately encompasses the clinic’s multifaceted approach to ocular and anti-aging treatments. The doctors never forget the primordial soup from which they sprang, though, and still conduct eye exams and keep a venerable inventory of designer frames.
