Though there are 130 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. Owned and operated since 1972, when a small group of friends started it in Philadelphia, aiming for quality eyewear manufacturing as well as customer service. These same friends, aided by a few family members, still lead the franchise today. They ensure that each location adheres to their original principles and mandates for mustard-colored shag carpets.

In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, D&G, and Versace. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses?whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites?they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.

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.

Both Drs. William and Jason Brand know their patients place a lot of trust in them when they use them for their eye care needs or elect them to perform their LASIK procedures. That trust isn't something the father and son teams takes lightly. They ensure it's continued by monitoring patients throughout the whole LASIK process, instead of handing them off to a technician or an unpaid intern. The doctors have years of experience treating patients with LASIK technology and also engaging in pre- and post-operative care.

Eye health is the top priority at Excel Eyecare Professionals. Patients who come to the clinic seeking a diagnosis for their fuzzy sight first settle down in front of a bank of diagnostic instruments for a check-up. After an eye exam is conducted, other testing, such as digital retinal scanning, may be used to find signs of macular degeneration. Afterward, patients are guided to the front of the clinic, where racks of eyewear are available to try on, helping patients decide which pair will make the best tool for burning down autumn leaf piles with the sun's rays.

LASIK surgeon to the Globetrotters and fixed-vision patient himself, Dr. Mitchell Jackson of Jacksoneye has performed more than 30,000 blade-free procedures, facilitated by the precise IntraLase flap-creation technique. Dr. Jackson tailors each LASIK procedure to individuals with a pre-op consultation, during which a computer imaging system details each eye's contours, smoothness, corneal regularity, and ability to turn mortals into stone. On the day of surgery, patients and their designated drivers spend roughly 2.5 hours at the office, though the actual process takes only about 10 minutes per eye. The IntraLase system creates and adjusts a corneal flap, forming microscopic, subsurface bubbles to provide a more exact fold than possible with handheld tools. Patients receive an oral sedative and topical anesthetic, though minimal discomfort may be experienced in the 12–36 hours following surgery, such as an itchiness likened to a trapped eyelash or the dawning realization that one's spouse is actually a coat rack. With the exception of swimming, patients generally return to their normal routine within two days.
