Whenever possible, Cheek's Optical prefers to handle all of its patients' vision needs in-house. Dr. Burks?the office optometrist?and his team of opticians go beyond offering comprehensive examinations, diagnostic care, and visual-acuity tests. These professionals also use the on-site lab to create prescription lenses in as few as 60 minutes. Thanks to the lab's full range of surfacing, coating, and finishing equipment, the technicians can even make bifocal and progressive lenses with advanced Waldo-spotting capabilities. Once they've finished custom-designing lenses, the staff members can then assist patients by helping them select a pair of flattering frames from an extensive selection that includes options by designers such as Oakley and Versace.
At Medical Massage Therapy, licensed massage therapists relax aching muscles with soothing bodywork.
