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.

As an undergraduate, Dr. Kellie Mosley-Mendez started out as a business major before she had a potentially dangerous mole removed. The experience inspired a change of career plans. With the help of a physician who took her under his wing and even became her godfather, Dr. Mosley-Mendez started on a path that transformed her into the board-certified dermatologist she is today. Her proprietary skincare line includes medical and cosmetic solutions for all skin types. When she's not treating her patients with general and cosmetic dermatological services, Dr. Mosley-Mendez is performing free cancer screenings and educating young people about sun safety.

Tiny sample cups sit next to each of Sultan's evoo market's silver drums where shiny spigots unleash the extra-virgin olive oils and aged balsamic vinegars within. Shop owner Sultan encourages visitors to partake in all his shop’s available olive oils, which smack of natural flavors and infusions, and to taste balsamic vinegars from Modena, Italy where they age in wooden barrels for 18 years or until their braces come off. Sultan also stocks evoo’s shelves with culinary supplies such as sea salts, spices, and specialty foods, and blogs about unique flavor combinations—such as chocolate balsamic on fresh strawberries—that he or his customers discover.

At each of Advanced Vision Care's five locations, a team of optometric physicians examines peepers of all age brackets for signs of aberration or disease. They then furnish patients with prescriptions that can be formed into contact lenses or slung into stylish frames from the likes of Prada, Lacoste, and BCBG. The staff also performs Lasik consultations, in which they determine candidacy, recommend a Lasik doctor, and provide a series of post-op checks. Most locations house a multilingual team, who can answer questions or reflect on metaphysical quandaries in English, Spanish, or Hebrew.
