Before Dr. Mary Anne Peck founded Eyecare and Eyewear in 1984, she earned her doctorate in optometry at the University of Houston College of Optometry and interned at Fort Carson Army Base. Her associate, Dr. Karen Allen, earned her doctorate at the University of Houston and traveled to Georgia for an internship at Fort Benning. After putting her skills to work at a large ophthalmology practice in Florida, she moved back to Dallas, where she practiced refractive and cataract surgery at a surgery center.
Together, Drs. Peck and Allen helm a staff of assistants and therapeutic opticians who stay on top of their ever-changing field by constantly studying and never shutting their eyelids. Their vision-improving services include prescriptions crafted with wave-front technology and retinal exams performed without dilation. In addition to contact lenses, they stock stylish frames by brands such as Gucci, Rayban, and Calvin Klein.
At Salt Miracle Wellness Center, visitors read, nap, or simply relax. And these everyday tasks are imbued with health benefits, thanks to the setting: small rooms made with Dead Sea salt. Clients sit as soothing wave sounds play, all the while breathing in salt-infused vapor. Aside from the calming effects of simply imitating a cured ham, sessions can combat chronic respiratory issues and help restore bodily balance. And if guests wish to further promote their wellness, the center also offers massages as well as skincare services, reflexology treatments, and complimentary consultations and tours.
At Richardson Vision Center, shiny displays of designer glasses and sunglasses tempt clients with the sleek designs of Ray-Ban, Vera Wang, and Jhane Barnes. Board-certified optician Paul Wayne Gerald draws from 23 years of experience to fit frames perfectly to faces, adjust and repair damaged eyewear, and cut and edge single-vision and multifocal lenses. He also helps clients find eyewear for rigorous activities such as extreme sports, fishing, golfing, and excessive winking.
Dr. Raymond Frye kindles his passion for beautiful smiles by developing convenient at-home pearl-polishing devices to forge dentist-chair results. His ultrasonic toothbrush invigorates morning routines by scrubbing teeth at the speed of 30,000 dynamic strokes per minute. A built-in alert sounds every 30 seconds, letting brushers know to switch areas and reward themselves with a piece of saltwater taffy, before a two-minute timer signals the end of cleaning. For immediate enhancement, regimens such as the Icing 30 Carat system, JägerWhite gel, and Shazzam White gel brighten beams with varying strengths of carbamide peroxide, eschewing the expense and hassle of in-office treatments. Specialized whitening trays, which shape to fit the mouth in an easy at-home molding session, contour to the gum line to keep the whitening solution focused on its pearly objectives, never veering off to burnish marble statues or someone else’s teeth.
For a 102 years, the old-fashioned Highland Park Soda Fountain has served authentic diner eats at its long lunch counter, including deli sandwiches, hearty soups and chilies, and frozen treats. With barstools, traditional malt glasses, and phosphates on its menu, the shop was described by Frommer?s as ?blissfully out of place with all the home-goods and high-end restaurants that surround it.? The menu pays homage to the soda shop?s early days with traditional grilled-cheese, egg-salad, and minced-ham sandwiches. Co-owner Sonny Williams?a customer since childhood?now teaches kids to spin on the 19 barstools that line the lunch counter as they wait for ice-cream sundaes, milk shakes, or phosphates.
