Though SEE Eyewear?s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a-kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop?s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn?t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.
At Eyestyles For Lifestyles, skilled optometrists calibrate prescriptions for lenses that are ground in onsite express labs. The eyewear technicians slip the quickly created lenses into frames from designers such as Gucci and Juicy Couture, turning out vision-enhancing creations that flatter faces better than a close-talking admirer. They also guard against the glare of the sun with prescription sunglasses, and clients can order contact lenses from brands including Bausch & Lomb.

A Chat with Eclectic Eyes Mobile Optical Shop
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Unlike other optical shops, we bring the optical shop to you, bringing you hundreds of stylish eyeglass frames for every budget. We [then] bring the eyeglasses back to you with the new lenses.
Of the products you sell, which are your favorites?
With so many eyeglass models, [I have] no favorites. My favorite thing is the process of narrowing down the many models of eyeglasses and finding just the right ones?with the right fit, color, and style?that work for each individual.
What do you love most about your job?
Being super experienced in the eyewear field and an eyeglasses expert, I love sharing my knowledge with my customers and guiding them to the right eyewear.
With more than 386 locations dotting North America, JCPenney Optical's ubiquity is matched only by its extensive selection of contact lenses and designer frames that includes brands such as Armani Exchange, Liz Claiborne, and Nicole Miller. Despite this wide reach, all lenses are cut at the same optical laboratory, ensuring a consistency of quality and a pretty good idea of where to look if your glasses run away from home. Each location has an independent state-licensed doctor of optometry, who can perform vision exams and help clients determine which type of vision correction will work best.
