If board-certified eye surgeon Dr. Paul Cutarelli kept a physical tally of all the LASIK and PRK procedures he has performed, he would probably be nearing the end of a comically lengthy scroll. That’s because he’s been at the helm of more than 60,000 of these procedures, which are designed to sharpen vision in minutes with the help of a precise laser and wavefront computer technology that determines exactly where to shape the cornea. This former resident of the world-renowned Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins Hospital pairs his most repeated procedure with a handful of other vision-correcting services. He can trade a scarred cornea for a new one and remove blurring cataracts. He can also insert a lens behind the iris to crystallize vision, an alternative for patients who can’t get LASIK or who refuse to hang magnifying glasses from each eyebrow.

Located in Sears stores or at adjacent offices, Sears Optical's independent optometrists screen peepers to determine accurate prescriptions and diagnose any health problems. As doctors position a refractive device over the eyes, flipping through lenses of varying strengths, patients describe the level of clarity with which they can see the purple zebra dancing in the far corner. In addition to the prescriptive exam, doctors may use eye drops to dilate the pupil to scrutinize the retina.
