For more than half a century, the opticians at Graf Optical have been helping to correct vision and combat ocular illness with health and wellness checkups and stylish eyewear. The center stocks frames from Kenneth Cole, Ralph Lauren, and Versace, many of which are eligible for upgrades such as anti-reflective coatings or impact-resistant, polycarbonate lenses. And for those who prefer to wear invisible frames, Acuvue Oasys also carries contact lenses and sometimes offers unsolicited advice about the importance of mime schools.
SVS Vision Center’s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 50 locations sprawled across 10 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Vision Center’s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.
Since 1981, Eyedeals has fused the worlds of ocular health of high fashion with their locally owned boutique and clinic. At the trendy uptown Minneapolis studio, frame stylists employ tried-and-tested face-shape-matching methods and cheekbone trigonometry to unite eyeballs with flattering frames from labels such as Ogi, Prodesign, Etnia Barcelona, and l.a. Eyeworks. At the St. Paul clinic, expanded diagnostic services ensure precise prescriptions, as qualified doctors sharpen vision with contact lens fittings and thorough eye exams.
We are an independently owned shop specializing in quality eyewear from all over the world. Our staff is Nationally Certified and trained in the latest technology & trends to provide you with the knowledge and service to assist you in selecting eyewear that fits your style, your needs and your budget.
Founded by Dr. Stephen Joffe and Craig Joffe, a father-and-son team who used LASIK eye surgery to correct their own vision, Joffe MediCenter has four locations across the country where expert ophthalmologists use advanced diagnostics to conduct each custom wavefront LASIK surgery. Treatment begins with a free, noninvasive examination with Bausch & Lomb Orbscan and Zywave mapping systems—derived from technology developed for astronomy and physics applications. They generate a 3-D model of each eye, which, like a fingerprint or favorite line from The Princess Bride, is unique to each person.
Upon assessing the results to confirm LASIK candidacy, doctors schedule an in-office surgery in their state-of-art clinic. The LASIK procedure is designed to eliminate your need for glasses and contacts regardless of whether you suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. The vast majority of patients experience 20/20 vision the next morning after treatment. After the procedure, doctors will schedule postoperative exams.
In a convenient location with plenty of parking, EyesWear gives shoppers access to more than 1,000 vintage and modern designer frames to express their personal style and visual acuity. The boutique’s menu of lenses includes single-vision, ultrathin high-index, and mirror lenses that render narcissists immobile until you walk away. The staff can also create custom clip-on sunglasses for any type of frame to filter rays to their most enjoyable wavelength. In addition, patrons can have new lenses fashioned from a current prescription and inserted into old frames or opera binoculars.
