Helping customers improve their vision is the main concern of the optometrists and eye-care professionals at Eye Boutique, who provide preventive screenings and help choosing from their more than 1,800 frames at each location. In each shop, licensed doctors of optometry scan eyes with comprehensive exams before diagnosing issues or prescribing high-definition Zeiss lenses and contact lenses from Optix and Acuvue. Designer frames from Guess, Nike, and Kenneth Cole house lenses fashionably, and Teflon protective layers help guard lenses from scratches and reduce glare. Sunglasses from brands such as Ray-Ban and Coach also protect eyes from harmful UV rays, creating an accessory that is both stylish and useful, like a diamond with a job.
Dr. Jordan Jones and his duo of fashion-conscious opticians, Gregory and Joseph Winjum, foster ocular health with comprehensive eye exams, and if necessary, outfit patients with the proper prescription contact lenses and glasses. Both the Chicago and Orland Park locations feature shelves neatly stocked with designer frames from brands such as Paul Smith, Tom Ford, Oliver Peoples, ic! berlin, and Prada. The wide selection of eyeglasses ensures that clients can find the appropriate styles to suit their face shapes, lifestyles, and superhero alter egos.
Since starting his business in 1988, Dr. Dennis Gaeta has honed the vision of more than 18,000 active patients. He makes each pair of eyeglasses himself to ensure the accuracy of the prescription, which can be presented in digitally processed lenses, no-line bifocals, and Transitions lenses that adjust to the amount of light both outdoors and inside the car. These lenses get fitted into fashionable frames from brands such as Bellagio, Mandalay, and Modern Optics.
With locations throughout the Midwest, Vision Center At Meijer's eye mavens outfit more than 700 frames with lenses carefully crafted in their own laboratory to specifically suit the eyes and face of each patient. Doctors demonstrate their care for patients' eyes by making sure all of them have a precise, up-to-date prescription. The center also works to keep frame prices low to help more patients find pairs of glasses within their price ranges.
With 20 years of optometry experience, Dr. Timothy J. Morrison keeps peepers furnished with high-quality lenses and frames. Customers can keep vision sharp with a bevy of lenses, from basic, single-vision plastic lenses ($105) to advanced sight correctors such as bifocals ($135), trifocals ($165), and progressive lenses ($275). Special-order lenses are also available for additional upcharges, and eyewear owners can further gussy up ocular enhancers with added features such as UV protection ($30), scratch-resistant coverings ($30), and eye-obscuring tint ($25).
Glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and even dry eyes are no match for the professionals at Seven Bridges Eye Care. That's because the team of four, led by optometrist Dr. Douglas A. Azzaro, tackles a wealth of eye issues with services including peripheral-vision exams, color-vision tests, and sports vision evaluations, the last of which makes sure clients' eyes aren't actually tiny baseballs.
