Select Local Merchants

The ocular experts at Vision Clinic assess eyesight and stock their boutique shelves with frames from names including Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, and Alain Mikli. Devoted to creating eyewear that suits the wearer’s lifestyle, the staff consults with each client to ensure lenses withstand prolonged staring at computer screens or prolonged staring matches with younger siblings. Once frames are selected, technicians keep them fitting with complimentary adjustments and onsite repairs.

Vision Clinic’s attentive care stretches beyond its shop doors—the practice provides prescription eyewear and exams for the local community. The company also makes frequent contributions to a number of charitable organizations.

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. The original band of eyesight experts weathered years of economic depression by impressing customers with speedy, full-service vision care, later launching a second store near Washington, DC. 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.

Started in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle, the nationally recognized and trusted franchise now operates in nearly 800 company and franchise locations nationwide.

Equip a corrective pair of Essentials frames starting at $99.95, or slip on a pair of designer eye enhancers, such as those by Anne Klein and DKNY ($149.95+) or Versace ($205+). Single-vision lenses adjust a singular field of vision and start at $80 (basic uncoated plastic) and $120 (scratch-resistant plastic) for PearleTHIN, whereas specialty PearleTHIN complete lenses ($175) are lightweight heavyweights.

It was Scott Catton’s father who opened the first two-for-one optical store in Ontario in 1989. It was called Wholesale Vision, and the glasses sold there were crafted at the lens-manufacturing facility onsite. The company may have changed its name to iVision in 2000, and it may have a new president—Scott—but it still offers two-for-one specs, perfect for those who misplace things or for for people like Superman, who need to completely change their identity in a hurry. iVision also still manufactures all of its lenses in-house. These lenses go on to fill regular frames as well as frames from designer brands such as Ray-Ban, Hugo Boss, Prada, and Gucci.

Subscribing to one of Coco Chanel’s credos, “fashion is not something that exists in dresses only,” the ocular experts in charge of Eyestar Optical outfit their display racks with glasses that aren’t just functional, but also stylish. While available brands vary by location, many frames come from high-end designers such as Gucci, Prada, and Tom Ford, which can subtly complement elegant outfits or add dramatic flair to overall looks. In addition to boosting fashion cred, select locations offer eye exams to suss out any current or impending eye-related maladies, as well as contact-lens fittings for those uninterested in wearing glasses or welding together two monocles.
