Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
Dr. Paul Vernon, the LASIK board-certified ophthalmologist at Family I Care, has performed thousands of refractive surgeries in the past 20 years—even his children have had their vision corrected under his skillful hands. When not wielding a laser, Dr. Vernon also plays the role of general eye doctor, outfitting squinters with glasses and contacts or banishing cataracts from cloudy eyes. His expertise with dry-eye conditions caused by staring at computer screens and kissing benevolent air conditioners has earned him a venerable reputation in treating symptoms such as redness and itching.
Led by Dr. Harmon C. Stein, the six physicians at Total Eye Care can handle almost any aspect of ocular care, from laser vision correction to eye muscle surgery for adults or children. Dr. Stein alone has performed more than 10,000 refractive procedures in his more than 25-year career and can personally attest to the benefits of LASIK surgery––he's had it himself. Of course, with better vision, patients might begin to notice pesky veins or wrinkles that never bothered them before. Luckily, Total Eye Care can handle those too: the doctors here are well trained in all sorts of cosmetic procedures, from Botox and skin tag removal, to permanent makeup, which can be custom-blended to match the patients hair, skin, or any hat permanently affixed to their head.
At Your Eyes Center, Dr. Milla Batushansky keeps a watchful eye on patients' visual acuity and helps combat ocular diseases. During examinations, she seeks to educate patients about eye health, from how to alleviate dry eyes to why laser beams burst forth from their retinas when they're angry. Dr. Batushansky specializes in pediatric optometry, contact lenses, and management of ocular diseases, but the breadth and depth of her services cover LASIK and corneal refractive therapy. After comprehensive eye exams, patients can explore a selection of hundreds of frames that add an air of sophistication to wardrobes and librarian conferences.
At Columbus & Perfection Lasers, Dr. William F. Columbus and a team of licensed practitioners draw from thousands of successful laser-based vision correction procedures to restore the sight of grateful patients. The good doctor and his staff master the versatile capabilities of amplified light, from sharpening fields of vision to distracting overstimulated kittens. Under the steady hand of a qualified medical professional, beneficial beams are wielded in a host of vision correction services such as LASIK, PRK, and the LAHayeSIK method which aim to restore 20/20 vision and correct astigmatisms.
