At Hefner Eye Care and Optical Center, the doctors take care of the medical services for your peepers: fitting contacts and lenses, performing eye exams, and determining Lasik candidates. Its staff helps patients peruse frames from Kate Spade, Roberto Cavalli, and other designer brands. But licensed aesthetician Jodee Shelper takes a more beauty-driven approach toward eyes: she highlights them with eyelash extensions that amp up volume and thickness. She also provides eyebrow threading, dry eye treatments, facials, and chemical peels.
After receiving his doctor of optometry degree from Northeastern State University, Dr. Bagg ultimately headed west and opened Eyecare Norman. There, he and his staff schedule services such as routine eye exams to foreign object removal. In the event that patients can't read the eye chart's fine print, the staff can prescribe either contacts or designers frames fitted with high-tech lenses.
Since Phil Clayton became the owner of TSO Optical 25 years ago, he's transitioned away from the traditional discount-eyewear model and toward a premium, boutique system that delivers higher-caliber frames. Since then, he's found that his smiling customers generally need fewer frame adjustments and less warranty work. Instead of opting for cut-rate glasses that have been blessed with a flashy label, his shop opts for quality glasses made by actual eyewear experts, housing a vibrant collection populated by frames from brands such as Oliver Peoples, Ray-Ban, and Tom Ford. A friendly and knowledgeable staff curates this vast selection, and an onsite optometrist provides prescriptions for both glasses and contacts. TSO Optical fills these frames with lenses made in their own laboratory, an onsite facility that cuts back on turnaround time so that clients get their glasses quickly and don’t have to extend the rental on their seeing-eye eagles.
