Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide, including four Las Vegas locations, where Drs. Kopolow and Girisgen draw on years of combined experience to assess the ocular health of patients no longer able to discern between aunts and ants in flowered dresses. In the store, opticians help customers navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. They also help focus the world with contacts from Acuvue, allowing cyclopes to throw away their anachronistic monocles and fit in with the 21st century's hip, nonprescription spyglasses.
Boston Dental's friendly dentists and staff draw upon years of experience and a gentle mouthside manner to put even the most timorous of teeth at ease. The take-home top-and-bottom whitening trays utilize prescription-strength power from New Nite White to cleanse chompers of clingy stains, giving them the luminous glow of a freshly polished flashlight. With one tube of solution, clients can alabasterize their teeth each day for up to two weeks or maintain their enamel's effulgence with an occasional treatment over a period of several months.
Since 1989, Personal Eyes Opticians' founder Nancy Edwards and her team of lens specialists have collaborated with customers to select functional eyewear that enhances lifestyle, image, and performance needs. Using superior optics and advanced lens technology, on-site technicians craft lenses in the vision center's attached lab, sharpening vision and senses of personal style and reducing toe stubbing. Eyeglass-inspired art upon the store’s purple-shaded walls mirrors the shapes of exclusive designer frames and designer sunglasses, as well as fashionable and affordable options.
• For $49, you get an eye exam (a $100 value), one pair of frames (up to $120 value), and a set of single-vision lenses (a $69 value; up to a $289 total value). • For $79, you get an eye exam (a $100 value), plus a contact-lens fitting, one pair of contact lenses, and a lens-cleaning kit (a $50 value; a $150 total value).
Doctors Malitz and Singh of Southwest Eye Institute provide a prism of laser vision corrective services to permanently reduce or eliminate the need for cumbersome eye accoutrements. Dr. Malitz's expertly honed methods of vision correction amalgamate thousands of data points culled from a complimentary pretreatment exam that uses cutting edge WaveFront mapping to minutely chart the eye's topography and determine the best method of refractive terraforming. Both LASIK and PRK treat nearsightedness and farsightedness, as well as astigmatism and the fear that one's dog is actually a masked cat. Treatments may take as little as 10 minutes, and most can see well enough to drive in 24 hours.
Dr. Timothy Perozek, the official ophthalmologist of the Las Vegas 51s baseball team, and his squad at See Right Now bring the highest level of care to the examination and correction of maladjusted eyes. In the eye exam and contact-lens fitting, soul windows are carefully tested with a variety of lenses to root out conditions such as astigmatism and near- or shortsightedness, the leading reasons that so few children grow up to be astronauts, fighter pilots, and Batmen. Data in hand, Dr. Perozek can fit eye-hugging lenses to underperforming corneas, transforming myopic peepers into paragons of optical acuity. The squintily inclined also can opt for a pair of Lindberg ($550) or Blink frames ($195, including single-vision lenses) or simply pick up some Eyebobs reading glasses ($65) to make reciting the phone book even more enjoyable. Sunglasses from Prada ($225), Oakley ($150), and other premium brands keep pupils protected from glare and poker faces protected from the probing gazes of opponents.
