After scouring Manhattan in search of affordable eye care for his six children, Dr. Richard Presley decided to take matters into his own hands. He had already spent years in practice when he founded Success Vision in 1999, and he drew on this experience to pair accurate prescription lenses with stylish frames. Rather than restrict himself to the latest whims of designers, Dr. Presley reduces costs for his customers by offering his own brand of frames. At Success Vision?s speedy on-site laboratory, technicians fit these frames with prescription lenses and x-ray capabilities within an hour.

Under the supervision of a board-certified plastic surgeon, aestheticians at The Plastic Surgery Clinic use IPL lasers to quickly and thoroughly remove patches of unwanted hair as clients lie comfortably atop body-length treatment chairs. Although treatments typically conclude within 15 to 30 minutes, initial appointments may last up to an hour, so clients have ample time to fill out paperwork and longingly gaze into the receptionist's eyes. During each session, specialists scan the skin with intense pulsed light that absorbs into the melanin of hair follicles, destroying them at the root. The application of antibiotic ointments and moisturizers follows the treatment, soothing away skin irritation while clients sip on complimentary soda, coffee, or hot chocolate. Visits must be spaced three to four weeks apart to account for varying cycles of hair growth and trade restrictions with the planet Xenon where the laser fuel is purchased.

Along their lush, 40-acre parcel of land, Brad and Mary Ann Funk bring a lifelong dream to fruition every day. The Funks transformed their property into a school—a place where visitors of all ages and experience levels can learn about the couple's shared passion: horses. In the warmer months, students of Ashwood Farms can be seen trotting, cantering, and conquering fences at the outdoor arena, equipped with all-weather footing. Year-round, the farm and stables are home to casual equestrians and competitive riders alike, a handful of whom compete across the country at AA Hunter/Jumper horse shows. Students can enroll in individual classes, or join the equestrian club for a unique, well-rounded experience that includes lessons and tips for a flawless ponytail. Ashwood also provides boarding services for those already equipped with ponies, and school horses for those who wish to use them during lessons and practice rides.
