Coach, Vera Wang, and DKNY rank among the designer brand names you'll find emblazoned on frames at Everything Optical. And because they're marked at wholesale prices, the glasses here can fit into most budgets. The same goes for contact lenses: Everything Optical's prices compare to those of mail-order packages. If you accidentally scratch or crack your fresh specs, the shop's staff can usually repair them the same day.
At Visual Eyes, Dr. Karen Wrigley, Dr. Georgietta Gdovin, and their experienced staff flatter faces and outfit orbs with designer frames and quality lenses. Vision vexations of all varieties are easily corrected with polarized, polycarbonate, and multifocal lenses, as well as iZon high-resolution eye shields, which increase sharpness, contrast, and clarity while retaining the client's inability to see through walls. Frames from designer brands such as Christian Dior ($325) and Versace ($225) rub plastic and metal elbows with rhinestone-studded Fendi frames ($285); child-friendly specs stand ready to put imaginary friends back into focus, and sunglasses await to courageously guard eyes from dastardly UV rays.
Since its opening in 2000, Omega Optical has sold designer frames in both classic and cutting-edge styles. At the Cheltenham Mall and Comcast Center locations, certified Doctors of Optometry perform routine preventive care and measure patients for prescriptions. Customers can then explore the store's collection, which includes glasses and sunglasses from Tom Ford, Alain Mikli, Prada, Gucci, Burberry, Kazuo Kawasaki, and more. To help them decide on a pair, staffers show them frames that complement both their lifestyle and face shape, whether it resembles an oval, a square, or a Spanish galleon. Omega maintains a close connection to the community around them; the Omega Optical Scholarship Foundation raises funds for local college-bound students.
At Your Eyes Center, Dr. Milla Batushansky keeps a watchful eye on patients' visual acuity and helps combat ocular diseases. During examinations, she seeks to educate patients about eye health, from how to alleviate dry eyes to why laser beams burst forth from their retinas when they're angry. Dr. Batushansky specializes in pediatric optometry, contact lenses, and management of ocular diseases, but the breadth and depth of her services cover LASIK and corneal refractive therapy. After comprehensive eye exams, patients can explore a selection of hundreds of frames that add an air of sophistication to wardrobes and librarian conferences.
Dr. Neena Chacha, the owner and head optometrist at Family Eyecare Center, specializes in medical optometry and specialty contact-lens fittings. She offers a wide variety of eye-care services from her clean, modern office, such as comprehensive eye exams, pediatric eye care, and eye-disease management. However, she doesn’t just make the world look better to her customers—she makes them look better to the rest of the world. With designer frames from Hugo Boss, Gucci, and Ray-Ban and a variety of standard and specialty lenses and contact lenses, patients will leave the clinic not only with clearer vision but with a new, stylish look.
At Family Vision Care, Drs. Tu Le Hang and Douglas Emslie work together to screen eyes for signs of disease and outfit them with corrective lenses. Their comprehensive examinations check for cataracts and glaucoma and determine prescriptions, and an onsite optical lab fabricates lenses for customers’ selection of more than 300 frames from Maui Jim, Fendi, Calvin Klein, and other designers.
