Started in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle, the nationally recognized and trusted franchise now operates in nearly 800 company and franchise locations nationwide. The master visionaries at Pearle are well trained in assisting all bespectacled beings, from casual librarians to picky, temperamental Cyclopes. Equip a corrective pair of Essentials frames starting at $69.95, or slip on a pair of designer eye enhancers, such as those by Anne Klein and DKNY ($159.95+) or Versace ($219.95+). Single-vision lenses adjust a singular field of vision and while prices and availability may vary by location, they usually start at around $80 (for plastic scratch-resistant), while specialty PearleTHIN complete lenses ($120) are lightweight heavyweights.
Modern Family Vision’s huge eyewear selection houses more than 1,500 frames, ranging from chic budget styles to designer looks by Gucci, Armani, and Guess. Their kids’ frames, meanwhile, delight youngsters with Disney, Laura Ashley, and Seventeen styles, rather than with adult glasses that have a lollipop taped to one side. For lenses to go with these frames, clients turn to the in-house optical team; the three doctors dole out prescriptions for lenses and contacts alike, drawing on more than eight decades of combined experience.
Squint a little and you might think that Savon Vision is a daytime disco with thousands of tiny mirrors peppering the walls. But really the flecks of glass are housed in an impressive inventory of 2,000 eyeglass frames and sunglasses made by designers including Perry Ellis, Ray-Ban, and Jono Hennessy. Nearby, a staff of savvy eye-care professionals test ocular health and help clients pinpoint a pair of goggles that complement their face shape and staring-contest brawn. Meanwhile, meticulous technicians labor in the on-site lab to perfect lenses in a spectrum of coatings, constructions, and prescriptions.
To ascertain Dr. William A. Boothe's devotion and success in his field, just look at his surgery stats: He has performed 137,000 LASIK procedures and counting. In 2012, he performed more procedures using the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser than any other surgeon in the DFW area, counting among his trusting patients pro football players, who rely on keen eyesight to see their opponents' thoughts. His talents at Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center have earned many accolades, including having been named one of the best doctors in Collin County by D magazine several years running, and in April 2013, Boothe Eye Care was deemed the best LASIK center by readers of the Plano Star Courier.
While many eye doctors stop at finding their patients' prescriptions and doing surface-level exams, Dr. Kenneth Garza of Complete Family Eye Care believes in going farther. Using the latest eye exam technologies, he ensures each patient's ocular health without the hassles and annoyances of traditional eye appointments. With his dilation-free Optomap technology, Dr. Garza peers into the inner eye, examining the retina for early signs of eye problems or diabetes. His glaucoma screenings eschew irritating air puffs for more comfortable testing methods while still effectively pinpointing possible cases of the disease.
Once guests have their prescription in hand, they can browse the wooden shelves of Dr. Garza's cozy retail area, searching out their dream specs amid dozens of fashionable choices. A two-year warranty keeps glasses in working order in case of warping, breakage, or cases where your nose just up and runs away.
