Dr. Alan R. Boyco keeps his eye on the world of sports?both as a fan and as an optometrist. That's because he's examined eyes for pro hockey's Vancouver Canucks and Giants, football's BC Lions, soccer's Vancouver Whitecaps FC, and baseball's Vancouver Canadians?four sports where seeing the opponent is a perfectly legal way to gain an edge. He also worked as the event optometrist during the 2006 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championships. Off the ice, he spent five years as the team optometrist for players on the Vancouver Grizzlies.

Before he made his foray into the world of sports, Dr. Boyco started Image Optometry. His first clinic sprouted into 16 locations over the past decade. In addition to filling designer frames with prescription lenses, he and his team of optometrists diagnose diseases such as cataracts and glaucoma. They also investigate recurring headaches, which are often caused by the fact that it's Groundhog Day, it's always Groundhog Day.

Subscribing to one of Coco Chanel’s credos, “fashion is not something that exists in dresses only,” the ocular experts in charge of Eyestar Optical outfit their display racks with glasses that aren’t just functional, but also stylish. While available brands vary by location, many frames come from high-end designers such as Gucci, Prada, and Tom Ford, which can subtly complement elegant outfits or add dramatic flair to overall looks. In addition to boosting fashion cred, select locations offer eye exams to suss out any current or impending eye-related maladies, as well as contact-lens fittings for those uninterested in wearing glasses or welding together two monocles.
