Q&A with Ryan Farrar, Optometrist and Owner

The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
Modern interior and furnishings. No hospital white walls here—[we have a] warm, inviting interior, self-serve Keurig coffee bar in the reception room, wingback chairs by the fireplace, and a separate kids' play room.

[We have more than] 1,000 frames to choose from.

Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
Dr. Jury and Dr. Farrar are American Board of Optometry certified, and Dr. Fieser is eligible. Our opticians are trained in the latest optical products and procedures. Our optical manager and office managers recently successfully completed a SkillPath management workshop.

What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
We love eyes. We love helping our patients get the most out of their vision. Whether it's helping a patient understand their particular visual condition or helping them choose the most appropriate frame style, we strive to make sure the patient is comfortable, informed, and looking great.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

The Long Drive Driving Range hosts private rounds of golf ball-bashing for parties big and small. Groups of family members or coworkers can wallop buckets of balls from eight artificial tees and two true-grass tees. A pair of picnic tables and a fire pit are nearby as well, allowing parties to continue well into dusk or after a solar flare short-circuits the world's electrical grids.

Massage therapist Heather Eck wields deft hands to knead muscles into a state bereft of tension. The Heaven-Sent spa package begins with a Swedish massage, during which a muscle maven strokes the sinews of the back to melt away stresses caused from everyday responsibilities, such as working or finding an envelope. A subsequent paraffin therapy aims to abate pain in arthritic hands and feet before a face steam and treatment alleviates weathered visages. After refreshing the client's smile mantel, the therapist massages the scalp to improve follicular health. The procedure concludes with a Foot Fantasy treatment, during which the staffer bathes, scrubs, and massages the feet and legs and exfoliates shabby shoe tenants with a mud bath. Like many movies, the Heaven-Sent spa package lasts 2.5 hours and features a surprise Tom Hanks cameo.
