Though there are 130 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. Owned and operated since 1972, when a small group of friends started it in Philadelphia, aiming for quality eyewear manufacturing as well as customer service. These same friends, aided by a few family members, still lead the franchise today. They ensure that each location adheres to their original principles and mandates for mustard-colored shag carpets.
In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, D&G, and Versace. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses?whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites?they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.
At Brookwood Eyecare, seasoned eye doctors ensure the long-term health and well-being of eyeballs with comprehensive exams and decorate faces with high-end designer frames. Like a professor emeritus of James Dean Studies, each piece of stylish eyewear embodies both smartness and a classic sense of cool, with choices from labels such as Bebe, Geek, Versace, and Joseph Abboud.

One might think that it would be easy to discern the services offered by Magnolia Eye Care and Hearing Aid Center due to its name. And though the center's practitioners conduct thorough eye exams and hearing screenings, fit clients for contact lenses, stock designer frames, and sell invisible-type hearing aids, that's not all they do. They also treat the rest of the body with body-sculpting services, varicose-vein treatments, and tattoo removal.
The ocular experts at Eye Can See do everything in their power to make it easy to see.
