Advanced technology and high fashion meet in Habacker's Bespoke Eyewear, where designer frames by English Laundry, Callaway, Kawasaki, Swiss Flex, and many other brands cozy up to hard-to-find European frames such as Derapage. With a dedication to personalized customer service, staffers help clients select the right single-vision, progressive, or high-definition lenses. Opticians fit faces for a range of frames, from American-made brands such as Kala and Shuron to European lines such as Nowosad, by Polish designer Slav Nowosad. Customers can bring their glasses to the store for free adjustments and ultrasonic cleanings, which de-grime lenses while entertaining neighborhood dogs. Habacker's proudly serves as a donation site for Lions Clubs International’s Recycle for Sight program, which matches gently used spectacles with people in developing countries.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide including the Preston Park Shopping Center location, where a dedicated staff assesses the ocular health of patients no longer able to discern between aunts and ants in flowered dresses.
In the store, opticians help customers to navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. They also help to focus the world with contacts, allowing cyclops to throw away their anachronistic monocles and fit in with the 21st century's hip, nonprescription spyglasses.
The expert team at Key-Whitman Eye Center has been caring for clients’ vision for more than 50 years. President and chief surgeon Jeffrey Whitman, MD draws on extensive experience to continue the center’s healing tradition. Doubly board certified in ophthalmology and in LASIK surgery, Dr. Whitman’s impressive resume also includes the American Medical Association's prestigious Physician's Recognition Award and tenure as president of the American College of Eye Surgeons. He shares his insight on sight in media outlets such as Fox 4, where he discussed the causes of and treatments for blurry vision.
At Key-Whitman Eye Center, Dr. Whitman and his physicians sharpen sight with all-laser LASIK procedures performed with Wavefront analyses. The clinical crew also specializes in accommodating multifocal-lens implants, which can allow patients to see things that are nearby, far away, and stuck in parallel dimensions. In addition, the center offers general eye-care services and showcases designer frames in its optical center.
Eyes can be troubled by far more than nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. At Optical Zone, Dr. Akshet Joshi understands that maintaining healthy eyes requires a both preventive and ongoing vision care. To that end, the optometrist and his staff use modern diagnostic tools?such as digital retinal photography and corneal-topography scanners?to test everything from depth perception to eye-muscle balance and Waldo spotting. Although the team's combination of experience and technology enables them to spot serious and benign conditions, they also provide patients with contact lenses and prescription eyewear to correct their vision needs. The staff works with visitors to help them pick a flattering pair of frames, most from well-known designers such as Gucci, Michael Kors, Ray-Ban, Juicy Couture, and Versace.
To ascertain Dr. William A. Boothe's devotion and success in his field, just look at his surgery stats: He has performed 137,000 LASIK procedures and counting. In 2012, he performed more procedures using the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser than any other surgeon in the DFW area, counting among his trusting patients pro football players, who rely on keen eyesight to see their opponents' thoughts. His talents at Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center have earned many accolades, including having been named one of the best doctors in Collin County by D magazine several years running, and in April 2013, Boothe Eye Care was deemed the best LASIK center by readers of the Plano Star Courier.
At Sight and Style, optometrist Dr. John M. Bevil draws from more than 20 years of experience to help his patients see better. He demonstrates this experience most tellingly through his comprehensive eye exams, during which he and his team "refuse to cut corners." While their advanced equipment scans the eye for cataracts and glaucoma, staffers are also looking for other issues, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Dr. Bevil's wealth of knowledge also allows him to perform advanced procedures, such as laser vision correction.
