At Florida Vein Care Specialists, Dr. Christopher Meyer, M.D., specializes in the banishment or reduction of swelling, uncomfortable, or merely unsightly visible veins in the legs. Treatments include sclerotherapy, an injection-based treatment, laser therapy, or microphlebectomy, which is the removal of larger veins. Clients can undergo a series of laser sessions designed to make veins gradually disappear over time, or smooth out legs with a microphlebectomy treatment, which allows patients to resume daily activities within the 24 hours, roughly the same amount one should wait to swim after eating.
A full-service optical workshop, Clear Vision Express is powered by a team that can churn out new eyeglasses with eye-blink speed. Journeys toward clearer vision begin with eye exams with Dr. Anthony B. Kouchak. The 15-year veteran doc's specialties in LASIK eye-surgery referrals and hard-to-fit contact lenses are rivaled by his knack for perfectly fine-tuning prescriptions to eye irregularities such as astigmatisms and spontaneous eyelash brushfires.
Post-exam, friendly employees serve as frame sherpas guiding customers through a gallery of 1,000 different eyewear styles by upmarket brands such as Nine West and Nicole Miller. Clear Vision Express boasts an onsite lab that enables optical fabricators to speedily marry frame to lens and present new specs to customers in as little as one hour.
Curves trades in competitive rows of workout equipment for a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. During 30-minute circuit classes, trainees form a convivial circle as they rotate from machine to machine, timed by a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music. Health-minded toe-tappers can attend eight classes of the new Curves Circuit with Zumba Fitness, which mixes Zumba dance moves with resistance exercises to create a muscle-toning combo that's almost as fun as your Jane Fonda salsercise tapes.
