The detailed biographies of ABC Vision Source's opticians, optometrists, and office staff paint a portrait of a diverse group of bilingual ocular experts. Their specialties range from frame selection and contact fitting to laser eye surgery and pediatric eye care—the office even offers free vision screenings for preschool-aged children and their glass-eyed dolls.

Dr. Clark Pitcairn might have a hard time remembering the first time he ever heard about chiropractic. It was the medicine of choice for his family when he was growing up, and he has been a patient of the drug-free techniques since he was seven. At that time, he suffered from a chronic cough that went away only after completing a series of chiropractic adjustments.
Today, he and his two sisters are all chiropractors, providing the same holistic, hands-on treatments that they received as children. Dr. Pitcairn draws upon the body’s natural ability to heal itself by first examining the spine with x-rays and steady hands, locating the sources of headaches, chronic pain, and poor TV reception. Then, he un-pinches nerves by gently guiding discs and vertebra into their proper spots.
Unless you’re a connoisseur, you might not recognize some of the brands at Visage Eyewear. The staff there searches far and wide for quirky labels, curating a unique spread of frames in their combination optometry and art-gallery space. The names of designers such as Bevel, Theo, Chrome Hearts, and ic!berlin adorn modish round spectacles, futuristic tinted shades, and tortoiseshell glasses with an air of wisdom. Beneath the energetic paint swirls of local artists, the in-house optometrist, Dr. Mila Ioussifova, can help clients find their prescription. The staff then waits to show them exciting frames that veer from the standard selection of dull plastic and tied-together telescopes.
Dr. Olsovsky performs thorough eye exams to determine the quality of vision, how the eyes work in-sync together, and overall eye health. Once he writes a prescription for lenses, Dr. Olsovsky then invites guests to peruse his stores of stylish frames from brands such as Geek Eyewear, Woman's Day, and Bella Italia.
Peering at freshly written lines on the page. Working to catch a glimpse of a bird on the wing. Myriad sets of eyes see their tasks more clearly because of Dr. Joseph King, who has performed more than 75,000 refractive surgeries in his 15-year career. He and the other LASIK specialists and doctors at King LASIK sharpen patients' vision with conventional and custom procedures, as well as PRK surgeries. Dr. King himself underwent LASIK eye surgery in 2000 to accommodate his active lifestyle. "Just 15 minutes after the procedure, I could read the computer screen at the office,” he recalls. “I experienced several hours of watery, sensitive eyes, but after sleeping for a few hours, I awakened and I could read the digital clock on the radio across the room."
