Though they now sit under illuminated display cases, Unique Eyewear’s chic sunglasses and frames are never far removed from the fashion runways of designers such as Prada, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, and Burberry. Guests in need of sharper vision or style can hand over a prescription to the store's staffers, who then order and swiftly slip single-vision, bifocal, and progressive lenses into stylish frames. They take precise measurements to ensure a snug fit and further personalize glasses with protective coatings, coloring, or etchings of your unique DNA strand.
Since its founding in 1961, Pearle Vision has grown from a single office in Savannah, Georgia, to a nationwide chain with more than 600 locations. Each store maintains the core values of attentive customer care and expedited service on which the company was founded. Optometrists sharpen patients' vision by first assessing eye acuity and health via thorough exams. Then, staff members help you pick out face-flattering frames from high-end brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Caviar, and Ray-Ban. Lenses are crafted from materials ranging from plastic to ultra-lightweight polycarbonate.

Dr. Enker draws on that expertise at his eye-care center, where he and a skilled staff test patients' vision with advanced technology and old-fashioned care.
