When he's not watching USC football or woodworking, Dr. Shuwarger is helping others see well enough to pursue their own hobbies. The optometrist, a graduate of New England College of Optometry, has been sharpening vision for more than 15 years. Dr. Shuwarger employs advanced technology to accurately diagnose and correct impediments to 20/20 vision. With the digital refraction system, Dr. Shuwarger can immediately compare the refractive error of old and new prescriptions while explaining away a customer's unusual number of grocery-store sasquatch sightings. After calibrating new prescriptions, Dr. Shuwarger and his fellow eye specialists then outfit patients with contact lenses or frames from brands such as Guess and Gigi.
Helmed by a quartet of optometrists, Premier Vision outfits clients in an array of eyewear from designer brands including Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and Tiffany & Co. and treats peepers to thorough eye exams. Single-vision lenses ($79+) shroud ocular spheres in sight-enhancing spectacles that can improve nearsightedness or night vision during midnight refrigerator raids. An eye exam ($115+) harnesses advanced technology to help detect and treat conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. The vision center also addresses the issue of dry eye with its Center for Dry Eye Relief, targeting environmental factors and renegade dust particles that use the eyes as rodeo arenas.
The ocular experts at Reber & Riley VisionCenter not only sharpen vision with corrective contacts and eyeglasses, but also with visual therapy, which can improve natural eyesight. Through targeted evaluations of eye performance and vision exercises, this form of physical therapy aims to enhance communication between the eyes and the brain. This form of physical therapy is administered both in office and at home, where tests include telling the difference between the dog and an oversize mouse living inside.
The doctors also identify glaucoma, cataracts, and other diseases, as well as perform routine eye exams. Patients in need of eyewear pick out frames by such designers as Chanel, Versace, Ray-Ban, and Prada. Patients can relax in the living-room-like waiting area and watch a flat-panel TV while kids entertain themselves in the office's play area.
