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.
The latest designs, from brands such as Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, and Hugo Boss, line the walls at Stanton Optical. In addition to stylish eyewear, each Stanton Optical location is also stocked with an expert staff. A board-certified optometrist checks eye health and vision before determining prescriptions; an optometric technician readies clients for their exams and helps people pick out glasses; and a lab tech carefully hews new lenses with onsite instruments for quick turnaround time. With these specialists on hand, men, women, and kids can pick out prescription glasses and sunglasses with the peace of mind that their new specs will fit their eyes, face, and style.
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 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.
Dr. Michael Johnson, a graduate of the University of California Berkeley, and his trained staff outfit clients in stylish designer spectacles in Eagle Vision Eye Care's modern boutique. Frames from Coach ($180+) as well as Michael Kors and Gucci ooze urban sophistication, while blinkers from Tommy Bahama and Nike convey relaxed and sporty looks respectively ($150–$200). Whether choosing a pair to match their mood, wardrobe, or a neighbor's lawn ornament collection, clients can opt to add durable specialty lenses with scratch-resistant, anti-reflective, and UV coatings ($80+).
Dr. Gabriel Jacob heads up Royo Eye and Laser Center, a practice devoted to improving vision with modern medical treatments. He and the team here reshape nearsighted, farsighted, and 10-sided corneas with LASIK procedures and improve cataract conditions with intraocular lenses. They also offer beauty injections that stave off wrinkles around the eyes and mouth and topical solutions that promote thicker, more luscious lashes.
