In 2001, Dr. Robert Samit had a vision, which was a pretty appropriate phenomenon, considering that he's an optometrist. He saw in the future a network of eye doctors, united under the banner of a single company that provides trusted community doctors and a huge selection of value-priced and designer eyewear frames.
Together with company president Sue Downes, they equip this army of eye examiners with the latest technology. When a doctor determines that a corrective lens is called for, he or she prescribes them and MyEyeDr.'s team of eyecare consultants helps patients choose from a huge array of frames from such brands as Gucci, Coach, Oakley, and Ray Ban RX.
A fully operational optometry practice, Wink's clinic combines state-of-the-art technology with a variety of funky and face-enhancing eyewear. Wink's resident eye expert, Dr. Rachel Cohn, and her staff can guide you to the perfect pair of specs based on your appearance, personal taste, and glare power. Pack up your eyesight records, grab a current prescription, and peruse the shop's selection of handpicked frames.
Barking orders for more than 20 years, The Sergeant's Program's head sergeant Chuck Dyson and his dedicated troop of more than 50 sergeants and personal trainers transform figures with military-style fitness sessions. The program provides a knowledgeable instructor to lead recruits through cardio, core, flexibility, stabilization, and resistance training while creating camaraderie amongst fellow fitness platooners. Though each day is fueled with running drills and calisthenics, Mondays and Fridays will be focused on increasing lower body and flank strength and Tuesdays and Thursdays will be geared toward upper body workouts. Cardio-intensive Wednesdays are solely dedicated to getting the heart pumping, sweat streaming, and reshaping rumps flattened by years in stagecoach-driver seats. Although the sergeants utilize a tough-love approach to push clients to their fullest fitness factor, the atmosphere is kept personable by their injections of light-hearted humor and giggling quartets of chipmunks.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Three different practices feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $4,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Dr. Farzam Tamami considers himself an artist who happens to have a dental degree. He grew up loving the baroque and classical music of Bach and Chopin and spent his formative years in Austria reproducing their works on the piano. This practice instilled in him an appreciation for design, aesthetics, and how beauty “works.” Later, after he moved to the United States and began to study biology, he transferred these artistic sensibilities to the mechanics of the mouth. After completing a one-year residency in Advanced Dentistry with specific emphasis on veneers, he has now been in practice for more than 12 years. He considers the mouth—in particular, the smile—to be the closest our bodies ever come to producing a natural work of art.
Dr. Tamami believes a smile should be white, symmetrical, and confident. He aims to help patients achieve these qualities with dental services that range from cosmetic whitening to veneers to full-mouth reconstruction. All these services take place in a massaging dental chair and inside an almost fully digital office that keeps paper out of landfills and inside the best pillows.
At Village Yoga, Freddy Margolis has amassed an impressive team of experienced instructors, some of whom have impressive backgrounds in fields such as competitive dance and chinese medicine.
