Terry Hunter, SCMT, the owner of Terry's Massage Wellness Center, caters his massages to the needs to the client in front of him. A diverse roster of 10 massage modalities allows Hunter to pull from a wide range of techniques—the rolling and kneading of Swedish massage helps ease stress from the body, whereas shiatsu massage focuses on pressure points and the body's flow of energy. Rejuvenation also offers ladies' night out packages, combining the therapeutic massages with facials, mani-pedis, and waxing.
Stanislaus Optometric Center’s sleek, tidy office space—with its plasma screen broadcasting vision-care tips, spacious lobby, and children’s play area—speaks to its commitment to patient comfort. Within the six separate treatment rooms, highly trained doctors examine eyes with multi-part exams that monitor field of vision, potential eye disorders, and retinal and corneal topography with sophisticated digital imagery and computerized testing. LASIK procedures restore sight without the need for lenses or long recovery times, and overnight treatments of corneal refractive therapy sharpen the vision of nearsighted patients without surgery. Gorgeous display cases of varnished wood house more than 600 different designer frames that grace faces with selections from labels such as Tag Heuer, Christian Dior, and Burberry. Children’s frames from Nike and X-Games let kids imitate their favorite bespectacled heroes, such as Clark Kent or Theodore Roosevelt.
With locations in 10 states across America, Stanton Optical helps clients from Georgia to California achieve better vision with prescription glasses, sunglasses, and contacts. Its shelves are stocked with more than 3,000 frames and sunglasses from high-end brands, including Coach, Calvin Klein, and Armani. Full-service onsite labs help optometrists immediately craft glasses and clone monocles without the delay of sending eyewear elsewhere.
Murrieta Optometry outfits eyeballs in style with a selection of more than 1,000 frames and keeps peepers primed with comprehensive ocular-health screenings. Like a reality TV show about Lewis and Clark, the comprehensive eye exam ($129) prevents visionary duos from fading into obsolescence, digitally zeroing in on prescription needs, checking for blind spots, and assessing retina health. The optical-coherence tomography ($39) peeks into the dusty corners of a client's peepers, checking for warning signs of glaucoma and other retinal maladies. Customize specs by fitting lenses ($79+ for glasses; $94+ for sunglasses) into frames culled from an enormous selection of designer brands such as Juicy Couture ($210) and Ray-Ban ($133). Murrieta stands behind its lens and frames for a full year, reworking defective spectacles until vision is clearer than Casper's face after being wiped with an Oxy pad.
Launched more than three decades ago, Site for Sore Eyes now operates in more than 35 showrooms throughout the Bay Area. Staffers at every location share their dedication when pairing customers with head-turning eyewear and contacts. The company offers a $25 warranty that secures all of its products, replacing broken frames for free and furnishing half-price replacements for glasses that are lost, stolen, or transformed into an acorn squash. In case eyes require prescription tweaks, each shop sits next door to California-licensed Sterling VisionCare doctors of optometry.
With multiple degrees in the sciences and optometry, Dr. Judy Nguyen uses her wealth of optical expertise to outfit blurry-eyed customers with an array of designer specs. The family eye-care practice provides comprehensive eye exams and screenings and accepts 10 insurance providers, accommodating the peepers of young and old with fashion-forward adult frames by Ray-Ban and Versace and kids' styles by Disney and Sight for Students. Dr. Nguyen and her amiable staff help patients select the right styles of eyewear without being pushy or insulting their previous Krazy Straw frames.
