Though Professional Eyecare Center lines its walls with designer frames from brands such as Gucci, Fendi, and Ray-Ban, its staff remains fixated on overall eye health. The team offers preventative eye exams, pre- and post-surgery care, and LASIK consultations for those who may be eligible for permanent vision correction. Team members also perform consultations and examinations designed to reveal signs of trouble and to pair patients with lenses that will finally allow them to find needles in haystacks or craft stores with minimal signage.
The certified opticians at Lansing Ophthalmology fit visitors with a varied stock of prescription and nonprescription designer sunglasses. Encircle blinkers with stylish Oakley shades ($89+) or shield tear ducts while stomping onions for wine with a pair from Cole Haan ($115+). Single-vision sun lenses ($89+) let wearers speed-read sunsets with stunning accuracy, and cutting-edge lens designs from Seiko and Pentax rival the styles sported by Hollywood A-list talking dogs ($234+). Although this Groupon is not valid toward services, a staff of talented opticians—many of them certified by the American Board of Opticianry—is on hand to diagnose eyeball prescriptions. All sunglasses and lenses are insured by a yearlong workmanship guarantee, subject to an additional fee after 90 days.
The expert optometrists at Owosso Eye Care want their patients to have as much information about their peepers as possible, which is why these professionals take time to make sure patients understand eye- exam results and encourage them to give detailed eye-health histories and ask questions. That’s also why the establishment’s opticians explain how different frames and lenses impact vision and why the company’s knowledge-packed website offers an Eye Exam Q&A, which discusses eye medications, routine tests, and foolproof techniques for dominating games of Eye Spy.
The licensed technicians at Grande Med Spa clear hair from bodies with lasers, contour bodies with state-of-the-art treatments, and perform Botox injections and microdermabrasions. A full line of skincare products populates the shop's shelves, and jewelry waits to adorn wrists that are tired of sporting four plastic novelty watches. Private treatment rooms comfort patients with soft linens and artwork, and plush furniture and a flat-screen TV keep clients occupied in the waiting room.
Across three locations, the opticians at Cunningham Vision Centers help customers select from a variety of designer frames and fit them with high-quality lenses. In the show room, experts help match frames with customers' individual face shapes. Cunningham Vision Centers then forges any existing prescription into accurate single-vision or progressive lenses before fitting the lenses into the frames. Lens prices vary based on the patient's prescription, and lens materials range from standard plastic to polycarbonate to the thinner and lighter high index. Clients have the option to add additional lens treatments, such as anti-glare treatments, ultraviolet protection, or a scratch-resistant coating that protects spectacles from grizzly bears demanding to try them on just once.
For eye exams, available by appointment, Dr. Thomas Cunningham channels more than a quarter-century of experience when regaling patients about the ‘80s invention of indoor sunglasses or assessing ocular health. He’s joined by the former team optometrist for the Detroit Lions—Dr. Jeffrey Rautio—who takes a special interest in dry eye and glaucoma management as well as specialty contact lenses.
