The name may be deceptive, but Visions Hair Studio goes beyond the follicle when it comes to beauty. The studio also offers mani-pedis that trim and shape nails and remove cuticle overgrowth. The service may also top nails with sturdy gel polish that lasts longer than regular polishes.
Patients at Focus Eye Health & Vision Care Optometrists entrust their eyesight not only to the clinic's selection of stylish frames from more than 35 different designers, but to the highly skilled optometrists that care for their rods and cones. During his tenure as a lieutenant and optometrist in the US Navy, Dr. Matt Esperon employed bladeless vision-correction procedures to perfect the sight of aviators, building a successful career with humankind's two coolest inventions⎯lasers and fighter jets. Meanwhile, founder Dr. Paul Berman applies his decades of professional experience to treat a range of ocular-health problems, while still finding time to give back to the community through his involvement with programs such as the Special Olympics. Vases of flowers add a touch of homey charm to the office, and high-tech LASIK devices and sophisticated diagnostic equipment protect eyeballs with cutting-edge care.
At Lens Lab Express, friendly doctors and staffers fit clients with glasses that suit their prescriptive needs as well as style. To correct near- or farsightedness, they discuss how different frame and lens selections impact vision. And to ensure stylishness, they stock a wide array of designer eyewear from brands such as Christian Dior and Prada. Fittings for contact lenses and comprehensive eye exams also boost the health of clients' peepers.
When it comes to laser vision correction, the doctors and technicians at Diamond Vision have a lot of options for their patients. Their most well-known treatment, LASIK, gently reshapes the cornea with a minor incision and a laser while LASIK's entirely bladeless cousin, Intralase, uses only lasers. Then there's the photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) procedure, which shapes the cornea directly but requires slightly more downtime. They also offer a few non-laser-based solutions as well that can permanently relieve vision problems or temporarily give patients X-ray vision.
Therapeutic optometrist Dr. Natalia Raeva has spent more than a decade testing eyes for glaucoma, cataracts, and dryness. Now, she channels the optometry experience she gained from working in hospitals and nursing homes to both All About Eyes Vision Center and Visual Effects Eyecare Center, where she pulls clients’ sight back into focus with contact, bifocal, and progressive lenses. After Dr. Raeva has tested the health of each eye, the staff fits adults and kids with designer and sports frames from brands such as Ray-Ban, Fendi, and Swissflex. All lenses can be further customized to resist scratches, filter out ultraviolet rays, or deflect the glares of a jealous sun.
At Allwood Optical Boutique, licensed optician Donald Trischetta oversees an onsite optical lab that turns out lenses specialized for a wide range of tasks. Before setting his lens-crafting team to work, Donald determines his clients’ prescriptions and takes into account whether or not they strain their eyes by using a computer every day or working as a file clerk in a dollhouse. His lab is also equipped for emergency repairs of broken lenses, which it prioritizes with same-day service.
