Since its founding in 1961, Pearle Vision has grown from a single office in Savannah, Georgia, to a nationwide chain with more than 600 locations. Each store maintains the core values of attentive customer care and expedited service on which the company was founded. Optometrists sharpen patients' vision by first assessing eye acuity and health via thorough exams. Then, staff members help you pick out face-flattering frames from high-end brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Caviar, and Ray-Ban. Lenses are crafted from materials ranging from plastic to ultra-lightweight polycarbonate.
Lourdes Cano, D.M.D., worked in a prestigious Cuban polyclinic before immigrating to the United States to found Cano Medical Dental, a clinic that houses a team of doctors, dentists, optometrists, and chiropractors under one roof. The assorted physicians accept most major insurance plans for services ranging from diabetes treatment to biopsies to cosmetic dentistry. Cano Medical Dental treats patients six days a week and clients should call ahead to book appointments, as they do when making dinner reservations at fancy restaurants or their grandma’s tiny kitchen table.

In addition to four clinic locations, a roving mobile unit brings vision care to those not able to travel.
If you're willing to let someone operate on your eyes with a laser, what's the one thing they better have? Steady hands are important, sure, but how about experience? All told, The LASIK Vision Institute's doctors have performed more than 950,000 eye surgeries at 46 locations nationwide. Across its network, the company has independent veteran surgeons who are all LASIK experts.
Technology has played a major role in LVI’s success, as well. Each location relies on FDA-approved laser technology that results in minimal discomfort and short recovery times, in addition to helping many patients see 20/20 or better.
