For more than 20 years, the eye doctors at Total Eyecare have cared for patients using the latest technology. For exams, the team employs state-of-the-art diagnostic devices: a 3D tissue-analysis system can detect macular degeneration or glaucoma, and a laser-scanning ophthalmoscope checks retinal health without the use of eye drops.
After exams determine their health and prescriptions, clients can browse thousands of designer frames by brands such as Prada, Ray Ban, and Oakley. Pairs are made on site and include a one-year warranty and lifetime adjustments that accommodate changes in facial contours or the development of third eyes. The store also offers a vast selection of contact lenses for those who prefer to see spectacle-free.
Sparkle Dental's Dr. Rohit Z. Patel—a 30-year tooth-tending veteran whom Westchester Magazine named the Top Endodontist in Mount Vernon in 2009—leads a team of top-notch dental professionals as they brighten discolored chompers with Zoom! in-office whitening treatments. The skilled dentists, many of whom hold teaching positions, hospital privileges at Montefiore Medical Center, and several world records for breath holding, treat teeth to the Zoom! whitening method, which is designed for safe, immediate shade-shifting results of at least 6–10 shades. The pain-free process takes about an hour and involves the application of a scientifically formulated gel, which is activated by a specially designed Zoom! light. Clients kick back and assess their gums' hospitality as the gel settles into teeth, targeting discolorations and transforming smiles from sparkling to most sparklingest.

There's no secret to Bronxville Training by Design's personalized approach to fitness. The company's trainers simply find exercises proven to tone and shape the body, and then apply these exercises to individual workout plans. It may not sound all that groundbreaking, but these trainers have drawn on their collective experience to create workouts that are as interesting as they are intense. In personal-training or small-group sessions, they may start out with kettlebell lifts that strengthen the core and build endurance. These lifts often serve as a prelude to heart-pumping kickboxing workouts and TRX suspension training that uses body weight as resistance. Clients can also supplement their strength training through yoga classes, designed to better mind-body connections and increase flexibility.
