At Boca Family Eye Care, married couple Dr. Jonathan and Dr. Rachel Nebb put their collective experience and specializations in treating ocular disorders to good use shepherding clients towards clearer sight. During a comprehensive examination, one of these talented opticians will zero in on an exact prescription and check for hidden microvascular problems using a digital retinal camera, frequency-doubling tests, and eye charts. After the exam, knowledgeable staffers will then guide guests through the selection process for specialized contact lenses, prescription sunglasses, and eyeglass frames from brands such as Guess, Trussardi, Ray-Ban, and Charmant. In the in-house lab, expert technicians craft each lens to order with speed and precision, tackling orders from traditional eyewear to digital high-definition lenses.
Dr. Gary Goberbille of Eyesite Vision Center isn't satisfied with simply peering into the pupil with a little handheld light. Instead, he relies on advanced technology during his exams. Board-certified to spot a host of eye diseases, he photographs the back of the eyeball with Optomap retinal equipment, which not only reveal tumors and swallowed contact lenses, but telegraph ailments such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
Since graduating from Nova Southeastern University’s College of Optometry with honors, Dr. Seechel Patel has been demonstrating her personalized approach to correcting vision in a private-practice setting. She specializes in contact-lens fittings, glaucoma treatment, and family eyecare, with a particular interest in conducting early childhood exams in a campaign against amblyopia. She is also on hand to offer an opinion or standing ovation as patients model frames from brands such as Gucci, Lafont, or Montblanc.
Dr. Aman Sappal and his team of ocular experts elucidate vision with new glasses and contact lenses, vision therapy, glaucoma treatments, and other sight services. Comprehensive eye exams test vision essentials, such as refractive errors, visual fields, and pupils, before doling out fresh eyewear prescriptions. New lenses, from single vision to no-line bifocals, revel beneath anti-glare or anti-opaque coatings as they perch in stylish frames from designers such as Coach, Gucci, Calvin Klein, and Juicy Couture.
Two thousand pairs of designer frames pepper the walls of My Eyelab's various locations.

With so many prescription and sunglass options to choose from, customers are able to find many pairs that match their personal style. And with specialty features like flexible arms and shatter-resistant lenses, specs are also customized to wearers' needs.
