Fifty years ago, Pearle Vision was a tiny eyecare practice in Savannah, Georgia, run by Dr. Stanley Pearle. Since then, it's expanded to myriad practices across the country?including this one in Toms River. Helmed by Drs. Randy Nissinoff and Michael Iuliano, the practice outfits eyes with face-flattering designer frames and sunglasses, all with prescription lenses. Each pair comes with 30 days of no-questions returns and a lifetime of free fit adjustments. For extra convenience, the practice also stays open until 8 p.m. on weekdays, so visitors can pop in after work.
Founded in 2000 by Dr. Donald Macdonald, ClearSight Vision Center, LLC imparts perfect or near-perfect vision to down and out eyeballs with painless, quick procedures. Five board-certified ophthalmologists, including Dr. Edward Hedaya, Dr. Barinder Athwal, Dr. Jason Steinfeld, and Dr. Marc VonRoemer keep the operation running and as of this very millisecond have performed thousands of successful surgeries. They attribute part of that success to Clearsight?s sophisticated WaveLight Eye-Q laser, whose eye-tracking systems zero in on eyes with literal laser precision, and 400 Hz pulse frequencies complete procedures much faster than traditional Lasik.

If there's one thing the optical team at Cohen's Fashion Optical have learned in their 22 years of business, it's that people don't want to wait to see better. That's why they keep their lens laboratory on-site. After Dr. Thomas O'Kane finishes assessing visual acuity, the lab techs craft prescription lenses and fit them into one of their boutique's more than 1,400 styles of frames.
