Vision Source Philadelphia’s network of boutiques and optometrists’ offices protects patients’ vision with exams and eyewear. Each location’s optical experts care for eyesight with treatments such as laser vision correction, glaucoma diagnoses, and emergency care, as well as assessing prescriptions. Then, galleries grace nose-bridges with frames from brands such as Ted Baker, Gucci, Dior, and Armani.
In the words of the late Dr. Daniel Messinger, whose daughter and granddaughter now helm Philadelphia Eyeglass Labs, “We’ve been doing this for 100 years—we must be doing something right.” Overseen by the fourth and fifth generation of family that founded the company in 1888, the sense of history carries over into its opticians’ daily practice—they’ve been seeing many of their clients for decades, and bestow fast emergency services upon them whenever a client damages a lens or tries to stretch their frames to fit a family portrait inside. The personalized attention heaped upon each customer shines through in the services provided, which include technicians that grind and surface all lenses on-site in the flagship location’s lab, often fitting them into frames for next-day pick-up.
Our comprehensive eye examinations evaluate your eyes, both inside and out, for any potential disorders or diseases. Your visual skills and abilities are carefully evaluated and appropriate treatment is prescribed - whether it's medication, lenses or low vision rehabilitation.
Dr. Neena Chacha, the owner and head optometrist at Family Eyecare Center, specializes in medical optometry and specialty contact-lens fittings. She offers a wide variety of eye-care services from her clean, modern office, such as comprehensive eye exams, pediatric eye care, and eye-disease management. However, she doesn’t just make the world look better to her customers—she makes them look better to the rest of the world. With designer frames from Hugo Boss, Gucci, and Ray-Ban and a variety of standard and specialty lenses and contact lenses, patients will leave the clinic not only with clearer vision but with a new, stylish look.
During each ophthalmological exam, Dr. Heather Ford will prescribe vision-correcting lenses and analyze eye health of her patients, who range from infants to seniors. After the 30- to 60-minute examination, eyeballs can peruse Glasses Outlet's extensive selection of stylish spectacles ($119+) and customers can check out their faces' compatibility with the available frames, whether their face shape is like a triangle, a heart, or an exploding supernova star. Once frames are matched with lenses such as the Varilux Comfort invisible bifocal plastic lenses ($180/pair) or single-vision plastic lenses with anti-scratch coating ($80/pair), they should be ready for pickup in 7–10 business days.
