Vision Source believes that eye doctors have the most success when they have a relationship with the patient and are free to make decisions about what is best for that patient. That’s why, although it’s a network with more than 2,300 offices across North America, all of its offices are independently owned and operated by family optometrists. Vision Source merely grants these doctors access to its shared expertise and resources.
Its doctors inspect eyes to test for disorders such as glaucoma, cataracts, and the effects of diabetes. They also diagnose retinal tears and repair most types of eye injuries, from embedded foreign bodies to general wear and tear from staring contests with headlights. The doctors use low-vision-therapy devices to help people suffering from degenerative eye diseases, teaching them how to maximize the vision they still have.
For basic services, they inspect eyes for overall eye health and visual acuity before fitting them with contacts and frames from the likes of Fendi, Calvin Klein, and Guess. Since Vision Source is a network of individual doctors, each office is different from the next and tailors its services to fit the needs of the community.
Along with standard dry-cleaning services and wedding-gown preservation, the technicians at Dry Cleaning Specialties can even salvage garments damaged by fire, water, and smoke. After an inspection, the team cleans and deodorizes any clothing item, as well as rugs, bed linens, and shoes, returning them to pristine condition. Damaged stuffed animals are also eligible for repairs, should they suffer from the acquisition of too much love.
