The expert opticians at Texas State Optical stock a multitude of name-brand eyewear and optometrists examine eyes to diagnose vision and health-related dilemmas. As ocular orbs inspect the transparency of frames, nose bridges meet and greet stylish spectacles from ProDesign ($179–$250) and sun shielders from BCBG and Cole Haan ($149–$179). Purchasers of today's second option can peruse glasses from other makes such as Nike ($187–$205) and Michael Kors ($189–$330) or opt for a comprehensive eye exam ($79), which checks overall vision and eye health.

Groupon customers can upgrade their specs with a 25% discount on all lens coatings, including tint, polarization, and thermal vision.

Each appointment at Georgetown Acupuncture and Herbs begins with an assessment. This meeting discusses everything from your diet to your exercise routine, but most importantly, it asks you where you're hurting. From there, practitioners turn to the centuries-old tradition of acupuncture, placing hair-thin needles along various points of the body to help with ailments such as back pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, and weight gain that isn't just from forgetting to take off your backpack. Every session also includes a hot stone foot bath and back treatment, as well as reflexology, during which the therapist massages "reflex" points that can ease pain and promote relaxation.

The staff at Vitalogy Skincare tends to skin's health and appearance across eight dermatology locations. Medical-dermatology services cover conditions such as acne, rosacea, and hair loss; cosmetic dermatology focuses on looks with Botox and Juvéderm injections, as well as laser removal of spider veins and hair. Lasers also resurface skin or guide complexions through photorejuvenation, which diminishes the appearance of sun damage to restore younger, more vibrant looking skin. Vitalogy also tackles skin cancer with Mohs surgery—in which founding doctor Eric Adelman, DO, is a fellowship-trained physician—a precise method that quashes the cancer by carefully removing tissue layer by layer.
