More than 700 frames await clientele at Optical Fashions, a local institution whose licensed optometrists have been correcting the vision of area eyes for more than 50 years. Still headquartered in Beavercreek, the company now operates outposts throughout the Miami Valley with the same focus on long-term patient satisfaction that helped them succeed in the first place. At six convenient locations, doctors diagnose potential eyesight issues and help patients choose the most suitable lenses, which the staff processes on-site in their technology-packed optical lab. These lenses fit snugly into frames from the shops' expansive selections, which include brands ranging from Juicy Couture and Project Runway to Gant and Ernest Hemingway.
Patients have relied on Ohio Eyecare Specialists for more than 75 years, and today they count on four physicians and 30 talented staff members for exams, designer eyewear, and surgical solutions to health and cosmetic quandaries. During the latter, doctors use laser-based systems to treat glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, and they also operate on cataracts and even sagging eyelids. But as during a conversation with someone wearing a cool hat, the team doesn't just focus on the eyes; they also perform Botox injections and Obagi treatments that discourage wrinkles.
For more than four decades, Doctor of Chiropractic Allen Moore has been seeking out the latest available treatments for his patients. He has put these cutting-edge techniques to work in about 20,000 cases at Moore Chiropractic Family Wellness Clinic, often using DTS spinal-decompression therapy, a gentle process designed to separate bulging discs. In addition to relieving back pain through routine adjustments, Dr. Moore addresses health issues such as fibromyalgia, allergies, sciatica, and headaches, and targets soft-tissue injuries with ultrasound therapy or electrical muscle stimulation. Dr. Moore is also an advocate of the Advanced BioStructural Correction (ABC) method, which holds that the body is a partially self-correcting mechanism.

Stanton Optical treats shoppers to a selection of more than 3,000 frames from designers such as BCBG, Coach, Tommy Hilfiger, and Calvin Klein.

For those who prefer frame-free faces, Stanton Optical also outfits eyes with contacts by Acuvue and Bausch + Lomb.
