Though there are 130 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. Owned and operated since 1972, when a small group of friends started it in Philadelphia, aiming for quality eyewear manufacturing as well as customer service. These same friends, aided by a few family members, still lead the franchise today. They ensure that each location adheres to their original principles and mandates for mustard-colored shag carpets.
In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, D&G, and Versace. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses—whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites—they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.
With decades of professional experience, founders Danny Marshall and Mark Randall lead a medical team that clears clients' vision with designer eyeglasses and shades. Resident optometrist and competitive blinker Dr. Jason Iannarelli can peer into the eyes of patients and pinpoint their prescriptions. Once he finishes exams or clients bring in a valid prescription from home, high-tech, custom-made lenses—carved in the sophisticated onsite lab—focus eyesight through a wide range of optical enhancements, such as glare prevention, transitional UV protection, and heat vision. Frames from top labels, such as Lindberg, Salt, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Gucci, encircle lenses, gifting patients with both clear vision and stylish faces.
In addition to banishing fuzziness with lab-manufactured light refractors, Eye Design Eyewear equips pupils with chic sunglasses from brands such as Kate Spade and Michael Kors, deftly blocking harmful UV rays and cleverly shielding the eyes during heavyweight staring contests.

The board-certified optometrists at Total Vision Eye Health Associates alleviate ocular ailments with thorough eye examinations and frames from well-known brands. During the one-hour examination, expert technicians wield advanced equipment to scrutinize orbs for overall eye health and diagnose vision strength. Next, opticians collaborate with each patient to measure lens prescriptions, answer questions, and make recommendations regarding personal-vision concerns or vacation destinations. With today's second option, the friendly staff will help clients find the perfect sight enhancers from single-vision ($50+), bifocal ($89+), trifocal ($125+), or progressive ($220+) lenses to frames from designers such as Kate Spade, Dior, and Nike ($59–$700). An arsenal of additions personalize eyewear even further, with customizable lenses boasting antireflective and scratch-resistant technology, or miniature windshield wipers.
For the past 15 years, Oviedo and Port St. John Eye Care's knowledgeable staff—led by board-certified optometrists Dr. Robert S. Webster and Dr. Stephen J. Thomas—has been striving to treat each patient that walks through their doors like family. They do so by taking the time to learn each patient's history, which helps them better assess ocular conditions during preliminary tests, visual-acuity and refraction measurements, and eye-health evaluations. Once prescriptions are known, the staff helps patients sort through over 1,000 frames, including high-end brands such as Gucci and Vera Wang, to find their ideal match. The staff shows equal love for the environment by taking on green initiatives, such as switching to all-natural cleaners, using recyclable polyethylene bags, and declaring fern the new pink.
Each Eye Doctor’s Optical Outlets location is doctor-owned, uniting the staff with a common vision to sharpen sight and boost eye health. Eye examinations reveal prescriptions and uncover any other ocular problems. After patients choose a new set of lenses, the in-house technicians get to work crafting them in the shop’s own lab rather than sending them off to be made during a summer camp’s arts and crafts day. Sundry designer frames border eyes in looks from Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs to Nike and Harley Davidson, and there is usually a trio of technicians in the shop, enabling multiple clients to summon help with a single pigeon call.
