Vision in Naples

Select Local Merchants

Before they opened Character Eyez, licensed opticians Bob and Linda Jack worked for a leading eyewear provider. Today, they extract only the best practices from this experience to run their independent shop, such as working directly with top designers and affixing frames with precision lenses by Varilux and Carl Zeiss. Their cozy stone building is located within Naples Bay Resort, where a striped awning beckons passersby and serves as a landing pad for nearsighted seagulls. Inside, staffers stock shelves with designer frames by Swissflex, Versace, and Ray-Ban.

The medical professionals at Spectacles of Naples harness up-to-date technology to care for the eyes of patients. Dr. Eric Crittenden schedules an entire hour for each exam and consultation, performing the entire evaluation himself to ensure one-on-one attention to the patient's needs, and avoiding mirrors so that patients don't think they have double vision or press charges against the room's walls for identity theft. After addressing needs and concerns in a consultation, the doctor wields a Woodlyn UltraVision HD flat-screen acuity tester in the exam room instead of projecting an eye chart onto a wall, which allows him to change charts, display pictures of the eye, and educate patients in high definition.
