Precise Optique fills the walls of its cozy boutique with frames from designers including Gucci, Dior, Armani, and Prada. As clients shop the shelves, staffers demonstrate their commitment to personal attention by helping customers find eyewear that complements their lifestyle and facial shape. Frames are then filled with basic or progressive lenses, which gradually increase in power for close-up reading and faraway whale spotting. Patients also can opt for contact lenses to achieve frame-free sight. The doctor extends the same personal courtesy as the staff during examinations, spending time to ensure patients’ eyes are free of glaucoma and cataracts before assessing visual acuity.

Once patrons have found their ideal frames, which include selections from brands such as Ray-Ban, Burberry, Gucci, Armani Exchange, Christian Dior, Prada, and Coach Lens Lab Express can fabricate the eyeglasses in one hour.
Founded in 1914, the original New York City location of Sterling Optical doled out frames amid the Ford Model Ts and paperboys that swarmed the city's financial district.

Today, a century of steady franchise expansion has given rise to almost 200 store locations in 23 states. Most locations continue the tradition of offering one-stop optical services, giving customers access to exams and onsite labs that manufacture glasses in one hour. The spectacle provider has been named one of the nation's leading franchises by Entrepreneur magazine.
