For more than 30 years, 1st Eye Care's trained team of optical technicians has sharpened eyes’ style and focus. State-of-the-art diagnostic equipment assists the technicians during eye exams, which check each eye for signs of glaucoma and clear fingerprints from smudged lenses.
Appointments don’t stop there—the staff prides itself on outfitting each pair of eyes with its complimentary frame, and they will take as long as necessary to walk each customer through the boutique’s eclectic collection. Personal style and current trends converge in frames from designers such as Prada, Coach, and Nautica and prescription sunglasses styled by Ray-Ban and Ed Hardy. After customers select a set of frames or invisible contact lenses, lab technicians housed in a 7,000-square-foot optical laboratory carefully customize them to match the unique contours of the wearer’s face.
Owner Sara Pryor and her skilled staff offer refuge from daily stressors with luxuriant treatments at Serendipity Escape Salon and Spa. During the Swedish-massage series, a licensed therapist kneads unruly knots with firm, but gentle hands, and soothes aching sinews with smooth strokes. Deluxe facials enlist natural products to rescue pores from built-up grime and invading red coats, leaving mugs feeling refreshed. Alternatively, aesthetic savants lengthen lashes with a full set of extensions, adding glamor to everyday glances and Arbor Day eye bats. Clients can relax between the treatment rooms’ crimson walls, as dim lighting lulls them into peaceful reveries.
