With an experienced optometrist on staff and a selection of more than 500 frames and a variety of lens types, Pinnacle Vision Care offers a fix for almost every bout of blurry, foggy, or x-ray vision. Eye exams ($105, or $155 with contact-lens fitting), each performed by a licensed doctor, serve to screen the eye for diseases and engineer lenses for sharp lines and clear images. Frame droppers and cactus battlers can feel secure in the knowledge that every eyewear purchase at Pinnacle Vision Care includes a two-year warranty against breakage. A large variety of basic frames are available for around $47–$100, and can be filled in with basic lenses (starting at $60), upgraded single-vision lenses ($100–$185), or progressive lenses ($200–$600).
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
