Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can try out the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
Vision Source Philadelphia’s network of boutiques and optometrists’ offices protects patients’ vision with exams and eyewear. Each location’s optical experts care for eyesight with treatments such as laser vision correction, glaucoma diagnoses, and emergency care, as well as assessing prescriptions. Then, galleries grace nose-bridges with frames from brands such as Ted Baker, Gucci, Dior, and Armani.
In the words of the late Dr. Daniel Messinger, whose daughter and granddaughter now helm Philadelphia Eyeglass Labs, “We’ve been doing this for 100 years—we must be doing something right.” Overseen by the fourth and fifth generation of family that founded the company in 1888, the sense of history carries over into its opticians’ daily practice—they’ve been seeing many of their clients for decades, and bestow fast emergency services upon them whenever a client damages a lens or tries to stretch their frames to fit a family portrait inside. The personalized attention heaped upon each customer shines through in the services provided, which include technicians that grind and surface all lenses on-site in the flagship location’s lab, often fitting them into frames for next-day pick-up.
Skippack Eye Care's optometry experts stylishly festoon faces with designer brands that abolish blurry vision and enhance ocular allure. Frames from illustrious designers such as Prada, BCBG, and Banana Republic give eyes a more opulent outlook than trimming them with tinsel ($199+), and expertly formed lenses transform fuzzy images into crisp works of art ($65+). Frame fiends can find prescription or standard sunglasses from Ray-Ban and more to defend retinas from the sun's retina-tanning rays. In case of inadvertent skull growth or Three Stooges rehearsals, every eyeglass purchase comes with complimentary repairs and adjustments.
For more than 90 years, Sterling Optical’s physicians and eyeglass specialists have paired peepers with stylish brand-name frames. Men, women, children, and seeing-impaired mannequins can browse frames by Coach, Michael Kors, Tom Ford, and Kenneth Cole (designer frames are $229+), among others such as Peachtree Eyewear ($119). Eyewear technicians forge lenses in about one hour before bestowing customers with two pairs of custom frames—one for daily wear and one for incognito trips to the grocery store. If within 30 days of their purchase patrons tire of frames with x-ray vision, Sterling Optical will gladly replace said specs with another pair of equal or lesser value.
