In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
Insight Eye Care gives the gift of clear vision to eyeballs and their respective owners with a wide range of frames and services. With 29 years of experience assessing ocular orbs, optometrist Dr. Douglas Satterfield administers vision exams ($69.95) for eyeglasses, asking those with clinical Monet-vision to read from the vision chart or spot a pyramid scheme from a mile away.

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We reviewed over 300 resumes just to hire two opticians. That's how obsessed we are with customer service.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
"Four other doctors said they couldn't help me see better. This is the best I've seen in years."
Helmed by optometrist Dr. Lynn Stromness and ophthalmologist Dr. Paul Jeppsen, Canyon Eye Specialists sharpens the sight of patients of all ages with thorough examinations and an arsenal of stylish frames. In addition to ensuring the long-term health of eyes with routine exams, the good doctors employ sophisticated remedies for blurred vision, such as LASIK procedures that reduce the need for glasses and treatments that allow dry-eyed patients to wear contacts or cry at sad films. The fully accessible office stocks a vast array of frames from brands such as Vera Bradley, Tommy Bahama, and Guess, and the in-office lab speedily fashions prescriptions for most lenses.
Dr. Francis Wapner and Dr. Todd Daynes, the ophthalmologists behind Advanced Eye Care, wield experience gleaned from thousands of surgeries, exams, and medical evaluations when correcting ocular issues. The office outfits eyes in a number of stylishly sight-enhancing frames or secretly spiffs up vision with a pair of contacts. For those looking to shed their eyewear altogether, the doctors terraform corneal surfaces during traditional LASIK treatments performed with a microkeratome, often leaving patients with 20/20 vision or better and reducing their need for glasses, contacts, or large-print maps of their living rooms.
Board-certified optometrist Dr. Jeffery L. Mellor has plenty of ways to improve vision. For patients looking for glasses, he pairs frames with prescription lenses made from one of five types of material, such as lightweight polycarbonate, Trivex, or tried-and-true crown glass. Patients looking for contacts can get fitted with rigid, soft, or hybrid lenses. And for those looking for a more permanent solution, Dr. Mellor can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism with LASIK procedures.
