20/20 Eyecare's optometrists examine eyes and dress them up in specialty lenses and designer frames. They can recommend gear for almost any pair of soul windows with a supply of scratch- and glare-resistant lenses as well as OSHA–certified safety glasses. Technicians offer free adjustments, perform minor repairs, and change glasses' oil, often with same- or next-day service.
As an Alcon–sponsored Dry Eye Center of Excellence, 20/20 Eyecare is notably equipped to treat dry-eye syndrome.
After graduating with honors from the chemical-engineering program at Vanderbilt University, Dr. Alette Howard Davis earned her optometry degree and became the on-staff eye doc at Insight Vision Center.

She also offers designer glasses and sunglasses, contact lenses, and lenses that can prevent the eye strain associated with using computers or watching the DVD player in the car next to yours.

Led by a licensed dispensing optician who ensures that specs ($145+) are appropriately fit to each client's face and each client's face double's face, the cornea connoisseurs at Visualeyes outfit peepers with stylish frames from designers such as Lafont, Fendi, and Tom Ford. Single-vision lenses ($90+) and progressive lenses ($150+) can be enhanced with an antireflective coating ($90) to ward off wasted minutes pondering the true meaning of The Real World, or endowed with a solid tint ($20) or polarized lenses ($80) to protect baby blues from the sun's harsh glare.

Before settling down in Tennessee, Dr. Laura Kobrick practiced optometry in southern Illinois and in the Air Force as an active-duty captain. At Visionary Eyeworks, she employs her wealth of professional experiences to develop a one-on-one rapport with each patient, screening them for common ocular-health problems such as cataracts, glaucoma, and death-ray vision. With prescription in hand, customers can peruse the shop’s wide array of frames from brands such as Ralph Lauren, Ray-Ban, and Coach, as well as XXL pieces that comfortably fit larger faces.
Led by Dr. Lisa Davis—who earned her doctorate at the University of Birmingham School of Optometry—a team of opticians and friendly staffers help guests correct their vision while flaunting their unique personal style. The staff performs comprehensive eye exams to detect diseases, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts, as well as conditions that affect the cornea, retina, and peripheral components of the eye. After exams, staff members outfit guests with contacts or help them express themselves with Vera Wang and Ted Baker frames made with plastic, wire, or bits of their third-grade art homework. The office itself features a bit of aesthetic splendor, with arched doorways that hang over sleek hardwood floors, and a cobblestone reception desk that greets patients as they enter.
