Eyes Nouveau founder and president Dr. Ron Davidson, O.D. helms a squad of eye specialists armed with advanced technology and a wide selection of frames. With computerized instruments, the professionals peer deep into internal structures, then inspect the exterior of the eye for obstructions, such as still-affixed lens caps. The team also assists guests as they pair lenses with frames from such designers as Oliver Peoples, Tiffany, Bebe, and Ray-Ban.
Staffed by passionate opticians, Clearview Eyecare and Laser Center serves clients with family-friendly eye care and crafts new qlasses fast with one-hour service available on most prescriptions. The shop stocks more than 1,000 different styles of adult and children’s frames, all backed by a price-protection guarantee. Lenses ($60+) and colorful eyeborders from Adidas, Kipling, and Reflections ($90+) make fashion statements without landing wallets in the emergency room. Chic designer specs from Ted Baker, Vera Wang, Guess, and other brands serve as both a trendy accessory and a means for preventing customers from mistaking a garishly dressed friend for a Christmas tree.
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.
Exotic fish waggle their fins at passersby from their aquarium at Fugu's Sushi & Wok, daring visitors to experience the ocean with all five senses. Yellow lights bathe dark wood tables in warmth as guests dive into fresh sushi, sashimi, and other cool treats. From behind the sushi bar, a skilled chef rolls and chops 60 types of maki and nigiri, including yellowtail hand rolls and two-piece bites of squid and octopus. Specialty rolls arrive accented by ingredients such as avocado, chili sauce, and white or brown rice and radiate more color than a rainbow trapped in a gumball machine. Warm Chinese entrees such as walnut shrimp and cashew chicken brim with earthy flavors, which pair nicely with the restaurant's selection of sakes and crisp white wines.
Started in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle, the nationally recognized and trusted franchise now operates in nearly 800 company and franchise locations nationwide.

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.
The four eye surgeons at Kleiman Evangelista Eye Center?Dr. David Kleiman, Dr. Anthony Evangelista, Dr. Aaron Amacher, and Dr. Farshid Ighani?specialize in surgeries that render blades unnecessary, replacing them with laser technology. Their Blade-Free HD IntraLASIK surgery, for example, corrects vision problems with beams from the IntraLase iFS and VISX Star S4 lasers; the process reshapes corneal tissue more effectively than glasses whose lenses have been replaced with Jell-O molds.
