With decades of professional experience, founders Danny Marshall and Mark Randall lead a medical team that clears clients' vision with designer eyeglasses and shades. Resident optometrist and competitive blinker Dr. Jason Iannarelli can peer into the eyes of patients and pinpoint their prescriptions. Once he finishes exams or clients bring in a valid prescription from home, high-tech, custom-made lenses—carved in the sophisticated onsite lab—focus eyesight through a wide range of optical enhancements, such as glare prevention, transitional UV protection, and heat vision. Frames from top labels, such as Lindberg and Salt, encircle lenses, gifting patients with both clear vision and stylish faces.
In addition to banishing fuzziness with lab-manufactured light refractors, Eye Design Eyewear equips pupils with chic sunglasses from brands such as Roxy or Costa Del Mar, deftly blocking harmful UV rays and cleverly shielding the eyes during heavyweight staring contests.
The board-certified optometrists at Total Vision Eye Health Associates alleviate ocular ailments with thorough eye examinations and frames from well-known brands. During the one-hour examination, expert technicians wield advanced equipment to scrutinize orbs for overall eye health and diagnose vision strength. Next, opticians collaborate with each patient to measure lens prescriptions, answer questions, and make recommendations regarding personal-vision concerns or vacation destinations. With today's second option, the friendly staff will help clients find the perfect sight enhancers from single-vision ($50+), bifocal ($89+), trifocal ($125+), or progressive ($220+) lenses to frames from designers such as Kate Spade, Dior, and Nike ($59–$700). An arsenal of additions personalize eyewear even further, with customizable lenses boasting antireflective and scratch-resistant technology, or miniature windshield wipers.
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.
For the past 15 years, Oviedo and Port St. John Eye Care's knowledgeable staff—led by board-certified optometrists Dr. Robert S. Webster and Dr. Stephen J. Thomas—has been striving to treat each patient that walks through their doors like family. They do so by taking the time to learn each patient's history, which helps them better assess ocular conditions during preliminary tests, visual-acuity and refraction measurements, and eye-health evaluations. Once prescriptions are known, the staff helps patients sort through over 1,000 frames, including high-end brands such as Gucci and Vera Wang, to find their ideal match. The staff shows equal love for the environment by taking on green initiatives, such as switching to all-natural cleaners, using recyclable polyethylene bags, and declaring fern the new pink.
At Combat City combatants are outfitted for controlled engagement using real weapons in a 40,000-square-foot, air-conditioned indoor arena housed in a converted Publix. After briefing players on using the gear and the rules of play, the staff releases players into the arena, where they test their skills among rooms, corridors, and plywood houses. In addition to the indoor arena, Combat City has 180 acres of open and wooded terrain available to combatants.
Dr. John Fusselman shares his optometric expertise with patients at separate optical shops. At both locations, the doctor and his team check on eye health, protecting patrons by making sure they can read street signs and spot ant-farm revolts in their early stages. Armed with a newly precise prescription, patients browse frames from brands including Ray-Ban, Prada, Oakley, Tiffany, Tom Ford, and Tag Heuer.
