Entrepreneur and frame designer David Ulrich has cleared the vision of Twin Cities citizens since 1969. Besides creating a wealth of exclusive eyeglasses frames, such as the sleek 8 Below Zero collection and the retro-inspired Studebaker line, Ulrich opened Spectacle Shoppe to serve customers’ optic needs. There, teams of certified opticians accurately assess prescriptions and fashion single-vision, progressive, or bifocal lenses in the in-house lab. Clients confer with the staff to design custom frames or choose from the shop's thousands of one-of-a-kind frames, vintage cat's-eye styles, and double monocles.
Dakota Eye Care Assoc. is a private practice of optometry where state of the art, professional care is provided for each patient. We strive to provide a caring and personalized environment and pride ourselves on the stability of our staff. This allows our patients to have a sense of familiarity when returning to our office.
SVS Vision Center’s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 60 locations sprawled across 8 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Vision Center’s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.
Since 1981, Eyedeals has fused the worlds of ocular health of high fashion with their locally owned boutique and clinic. At the trendy uptown Minneapolis studio, frame stylists employ tried-and-tested face-shape-matching methods and cheekbone trigonometry to unite eyeballs with flattering frames from labels such as Ogi, Prodesign, Etnia Barcelona, and l.a. Eyeworks. At the St. Paul clinic, expanded diagnostic services ensure precise prescriptions, as qualified doctors sharpen vision with contact lens fittings and thorough eye exams.
The optical experts at Eyes of Mendota banish clouded perceptions of the world with single-vision, bifocal, and progressive lenses, which tuck into frames by designers such as Tag Heuer, Burberry, and Gucci. The eyewear technicians also outfit shoppers with contacts, sunglasses, and designer monocles. Before ordering a pair of spectacles or lenses, patients can schedule an appointment for an eye exam and walk out with a fresh prescription.
The friendly team at Metro Optics is dedicated to the ocular wellness of everyone who steps into their welcoming clinic. Here, doctors Reznicow and Tuttle inspect eyes to guard against health concerns and assess sight, employing advanced technology instead of asking patients to read letters from bowls of alphabet soup. Once they've determined a prescription, the practice's opticians craft lenses using their in-store lab. The specialists then outfit eyes with frames from a selection of over 1,000 styles, which includes brands such as Gucci, Armani, Rayban, D&G, Guess, and Prada. Should clients find themselves unable to choose a look, they are welcome to take home up to three pairs to test-wear before making their final decision. The staff also supplies patients with contact lenses, and can provide prescription sunglasses to shade eyes year round.
