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 its Broken Arrow location, where Dr. H. Randy King draws on years of experience to assess the ocular health of patients no longer able to discern between aunts and ants in flowered dresses. In the store, opticians help customers navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and Burberry. They also help focus the world with contacts from Acuvue, allowing cyclopes to throw away their anachronistic monocles and fit in with the 21st century's hip, nonprescription spyglasses.
Led by optometric physician Dr. L. Mitchell Clary, the friendly staff at Hill Vision helps customers frame their faces with designer glasses. Technicians fit single-vision lenses ($70+) with fashionable frames from designer brands including Vera Bradley, Polo, and Ed Hardy, helping wearers avoid blurry vision caused by near-, far-, or wherever-you-are-sightedness. Van Heusen's black plastic specs ($165+) can add sophistication to any outfit, and Geoffrey Beene frames (around $170) offer affordably stylish facial accessories for men and women. For a quick chromatic change-up, an array of colorful Armani Exchange frames (around $180) stands at the ready to match the color of patrons’ eyes or Lite-Brite teeth.
At his family-owned optometric practice, Dr. Jeff Long sharpens vision with prescription lenses and a selection of more than 1,000 frames with over 40 brands. In detailed fittings, the able optometrist garnishes peepers in Nike, Oakley, and Juicy Couture frames and outfits spectacles with single-vision, bifocal, trifocal, progressive, digital, and conventional lenses. A family-friendly establishment, the center extends its services to adults, children, and children stacked in trench coats pretending to be Sherlock Holmes.
Jimmy's Egg has been making mornings delicious since 1980, when the first location, just a modest 50-seat restaurant, opened its doors in Oklahoma City. Today, Jimmy’s Egg slings breakfast and lunch to diners across four states, and the company continues to expand its reach. Jason Prout, operating partner in Tulsa, hints at the secret to Jimmy’s Egg’s success, saying, “Our eggs are always cracked to order and cups of coffee are always hot and never left empty.”
But the menu features far more than basic eggs and coffee. Offerings include eggs benedict, banana-pecan pancakes, belgian waffles, fresh salads, loaded burgers, and luncheon items such as chicken-fried steak.
