Native Texan Dr. Anisah Prueitt Shahidzadeh—or Dr. S—helps focus vision by correcting a wide range of ocular conditions, from red eye and glaucoma to diabetic eye disease and cataracts. In fact, it’s possible for Dr. S to help patients see in the same high-definition crispness of an LED television or crystal ball. The doctor is skilled in operating advanced vision-measuring equipment that can obtain individual eyeballs’ unique ocular “fingerprint.” High-resolution technology by iZon uses this information to custom-craft lenses that improve vision aspects such as depth, contrast, and color perception according to each patient’s specific needs.
Upon receiving their prescription, patients can then search the boutique’s shelves for designer frames by Gucci, Prada, and Coach. Staffers patrolling the floor can guide patients to the pair that perfectly suits their facial shape and personal style.
Helmed by American Optometric Association member Dr. Diana Lee, Frisco Eyecare protects and beautifies eyes with comprehensive exams and a selection of high-fashion frames. During her thorough eye evaluations, she not only tests eyes to determine their necessary level of correction, but also evaluates their health through investigations including corneal evaluations and tear analysis. This thoroughness doesn't just catch early signs of vision-withering diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration; often, she can catch indications of larger illnesses including high blood pressure and diabetes before they've set off the alarms of other scans. After their exams, patients can perfect their focus with frames from brands such as Oakley, Gucci, and Nike, or discuss the benefits of corrective treatments including Lasik surgery.
Though she spends most of her time staring deep into their corneas, Dr. Haideh Karimi understands that her patients are more than just a set of eyes. So while Dr. Karimi is checking oculi for aberrations, she's also taking into account her patients’ lifestyle and whether their eyes stare at computer screens under fluorescent lights all day or belong to mechanics who need the ability to focus closely through the tops of their lenses when working underneath a car or robot chef. Paying close attention to these kinds of details, Dr. Karimi fits a range of designer frames with carefully prescribed lenses to keep eyes functioning at their best. She also canvasses peepers for signs of disease, heading off symptoms of glaucoma and cataracts before they worsen.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
Modern Family Vision’s huge eyewear selection houses more than 1,500 frames, ranging from chic budget styles to designer looks by Gucci, Armani, and Guess. Their kids’ frames, meanwhile, delight youngsters with Disney, Laura Ashley, and Seventeen styles, rather than with adult glasses that have a lollipop taped to one side. For lenses to go with these frames, clients turn to the in-house optical team; the three doctors dole out prescriptions for lenses and contacts alike, drawing on more than eight decades of combined experience.
