Helping customers improve their vision is the main concern of the optometrists and eye-care professionals at Eye Boutique, who provide preventive screenings and help choosing from their more than 1,800 frames at each location. In each shop, licensed doctors of optometry scan eyes with comprehensive exams before diagnosing issues or prescribing high-definition Zeiss lenses and contact lenses from Optix and Acuvue. Designer frames from Guess, Nike, and Kenneth Cole house lenses fashionably, and Teflon protective layers help guard lenses from scratches and reduce glare. Sunglasses from brands such as Ray-Ban and Coach also protect eyes from harmful UV rays, creating an accessory that is both stylish and useful, like a diamond with a job.
Wisconsin Vision’s crew screens eyes for aberrations and illnesses and presides over an extensive selection of designer frames and lenses. At each location, optometrists perform thorough exams, producing prescriptions that recommend single-vision or progressive lenses from Zeiss. Newly ground lenses can then be fitted into any number of designer frames from the likes of Ray-Ban, Coach, or Calvin Klein. Antiscratch coatings protect the glass panes, and Transitions lenses allow any set of specs to turn into sunglasses when one steps outside or auditions for a classic-rock band.
At Body Beautiful Laser Medi Spa, Dr. John A. Martini revamps appearances with noninvasive medical treatments that combat unwanted hair, wrinkles, and cellulite. Nonsurgical face-lifts, laser skin resurfacing, and microdermabrasion mitigate blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation, renewing dermises and imbuing faces with the youthful glow of a newborn flashlight. Accent XL body contouring gives a noninvasive alternative to tummy tucks and liposuction by kneading bodies with a handheld module that wages war on dimpling. The spa can also conjure hair with restoration procedures, or employ laser hair-removal treatments to remove mustaches so they can be donated to witness-protection programs.
Across the 4,500-square-foot space of Dance Arts Center, students of all ages tap, pirouette, and leap, always moving with a sense of grace and purpose. Throughout the studio's three classrooms, groups meet six days a week to practice contemporary dance, ballet, jazz, tap, and hip-hop.
Founder and artistic director Danelle Davies draws on more than 30 years of experience to oversee the handful of instructors. The studio focuses not just on physical acumen and development, but also mental discipline by providing a structured environment in which students can pursue a career in dance or just discover a healthy outlet.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
