Featuring a menagerie of handcrafted fantasy animals, Coral Ridge’s turn-of-the-century reproduction carousel glitters at the heart of this shopping, dining, and entertainment destination. A team of mall-housed elves put 100 hours into hand finishing each animal, chariot, and paddy wagon atop the rotating platform. Ride mammal-saddle aboard a racing cheetah, stately horse, or friendly elephant. A charming light show emanates from the ride’s mirrored panels and hundreds of pinpoint ceiling lights, and a lighted ribbon rests atop the carousel’s crown, acting as a beacon to hordes of children and friendly manticores. Nestled among department stores, an edible food court, the Iowa Children’s Museum, and much more, the 10-ride carousel punch card stands ready to punctuate days of happy diversion.
Jensen Eyecare Center, PLLC is a leading provider of eye care and related vision health services for clients and families in Iowa City, IA and the surrounding areas. Our professional team of certified eye care specialists are committed to providing state-of-the-art family eye health care.
Since 1993, the family-owned EyeMart Optical Outlet's goal has been to furnish central Iowans with affordable eyewear. The eye boutique spans nine locations and its inventory of basic and designer frames presents stylish options for all face structures. Optometrists at each location furnish their patients with prescriptions that can be quickly traded for single-vision or progressive lenses with protective coatings and lasers.
Shortly after brothers Eldon and Clarence Klauer co-founded Klauer Optical in 1939, they found themselves making binocular lenses for the United States Navy during World War II. Today, the company's work orders have changed, but the Klauer name remains. Clarence's grandson Jeff oversees the operation, and Eldon's son Charles fabricates the store's eyeglasses and sunglasses.
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.
