20/20 Eyecare's optometrists examine eyes and dress them up in specialty lenses and designer frames. They can recommend gear for almost any pair of soul windows with a supply of scratch- and glare-resistant lenses as well as OSHA–certified safety glasses. Technicians offer free adjustments, perform minor repairs, and change glasses' oil, often with same- or next-day service.

As an Alcon–sponsored Dry Eye Center of Excellence, 20/20 Eyecare is notably equipped to treat dry-eye syndrome.
