Within the onsite optical lab at each Eyeworks location, opticians perform virtually any act of optical alchemy, whether forging new bifocals, mending bent or broken frames, or glazing lenses in protective coatings that cut down on glare and scratches. Armed with a knack for style, opticians cull from the stores' collection of designer frames?including popular models from Dakota Smith and Lafont and exclusive lines from Soho and Okki?to match each customer with a look to suit their personality and facial structure. Before either can get to work, however, optometrists conduct comprehensive eye exams, helping patients maintain healthy, focused vision by honing new prescriptions and diagnosing potential diseases such as cataracts or early-onset googly eyes.
SynChi Holistic Wellness Center's services live at the intersection of traditional healing techniques and scientifically inspired treatments. Crystal healing sessions, reiki, and reflexology all aim to restore harmony and balance by refocusing the body's inner energies. On the other end of the spectrum, ionic footbaths and pulsed-electromagnetic-field therapy channel technology in the pursuit of detoxification. Therapeutic massages relieve tension-laden musculature, and hypnotherapy can help reduce the urges that contribute to bad habits, such as smoking, overeating, and training a parrot to recite your Social Security number.
Imagine That! and Future Tech founder Kelly Williams has always loved science and art—up until her children were toddlers, she had spent her life building a career as an environmental engineer working for the EPA. But when she began volunteering as a leader of art and science programs at her local church and school, she unexpectedly discovered that she loved teaching children even more. Since 1995, Imagine That! and Future Tech learning centers have fostered a passion for science and technology in students aged 3 through 14. Alongside hands-on, age-appropriate instruction in the basics of physics, chemistry, and simple machines, the kids learn to work futuristic wonders such as building and programming robots to navigate obstacle courses and follow instructions. Science camps and workshops at locations all over the Atlanta metropolitan area give children a firm foundation in the sciences and prepare them for tomorrow’s world of ever-more-advanced computers and automatic doors.
