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.
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.
