Eclipse Eyewear fashions chic sunglasses from a selection of 1,500 frames from high-end brands such as Chanel, Prada, and Versace. Luxurious shades stand against walls and look out from display cases, eager to slide over patrons' eyes to shield them from harsh rays or pigeons' attempts to make eye contact and demand breadcrumbs. Though some Eclipse Eyewear locations vend purely UV-protective shades, the Tempe, Arizona store and Seaport Village store in San Diego, California also sell prescription sunglasses.
Dr. Leslie Chen practices what she preaches at her practice, Eye Studio Optometry. After thoroughly reviewing both methods, she decided against relieving her dry eyes and other vision issues with LASIK—for free—in favor of Paragon CRT, a noninvasive treatment that improves eyesight overnight with therapeutic contact lenses. In addition to this procedure, her office offers routine vision exams, glaucoma treatments, dry-eye solutions, and a selection of eyewear from designer brands such as Ray-Ban, Armani, and Dior.
Dr. Andrew Rummel, OD knows that there are two keys to eye care—one, of course, is medical expertise, and the other is communicating with the patient. Dr. Rummel has expertise in spades. He can conduct a routine eye exam, fit clients for a pair of contacts, or—just as deftly—correct vision with laser surgery. However, he and his bilingual team also take communication very seriously, conversing fluently with patients in English and Spanish.
Glasses frames have come a long way from the clunky, squarish black frames that were originally used to punish children for squinting in church. Choice Vision offers a plethora of sophisticated, stylish, and comfortable frames from designer brands such as Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Calvin Klein, Dior, Gucci, and the guiding light of global fashion, SpongeBob SquarePants. Ladies will find the perfect design to adjective their vocation of choice with "hip," while dudes can score some retro frames that surround their head in a glittering haze of irony. Frames range from $75 to more than $500.
At Advanced Vision Care Optometry, Dr. Odish presides over a wide range of high-tech eye-assessing equipment. Digital retinal screening and computerized visual-acuity testing gives the doctor detailed views of ocular goings-on, allowing him to diagnose disease, prescribe lenses, or recommend a good pair of mustachioed disguise glasses.
Customers have trusted their eyes to Dr. Selby Optometry's reliable specs and contacts since 1978. Through the decades, the vision-care center has differentiated itself from the big-name competition by cultivating a “neighborhood optometrist” aesthetic, offering free nose pad and screw replacements, complimentary contacts during sight-specific emergencies, and staffers who never prank customers with vision charts written in cuneiform. Sight-seekers are matched with thin and durable lenses, which fit snugly and fashionably into the frames of venerable brands such as Escada, Hugo Boss, and Nautica.
