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.
For those wondering whether or not they need vision-correction surgery, the staff at Feinerman Vision Center has developed an online quiz as the first step in a comprehensive consultation process. After answering a series of questions—such as “Would your career activities improve if you were to be less dependent on glasses?” and “Are you sure your glasses wouldn’t be jealous?”—prospective patients are told what vision-correction techniques might be best for them.
Of course, no surgery takes place until board-certified surgeon Dr. Gregg Feinerman confirms the quiz’s notions during a follow-up consultation. Dr. Feinerman specializes in both LASIK and cataract surgery. He uses high-tech equipment to sharpen eyesight, including a blade-free LASIK procedure that relies solely on lasers to reshape the cornea. During Crystalens surgery, a different type of vision-correcting treatment, he replaces the eye’s natural lens with a new, flexible one. Many of his treatment methods, which also include custom cataract surgery, take about 15 minutes to complete and incur little downtime.
The brainchild of champion jet-ski racer Tommy "the Bomber" Bonacci, Bomber Eyewear fashions stylish frames and safety eyewear designed to stay put during a variety of activities while on the court, in the car, or in the water. Each foam-lined pair of peeper protectors comes crafted with EVA foam and a non-slip grip, reducing wind-tearing and keeping frames sitting comfortably, and Bomber's safety glasses are made with the same figure-flattering material as bulletproof glass. Pop on a pair of matte black B-52 sunglasses ($34.95), or sport the glossy white Fuzz-Bombs ($50.95) while taking a hotwired hovercraft out for a spin. All of Bomber's patented foam-lined eye accoutrements have an aqueous streak, as they float in water and come with a one-year warranty.
