In 2001, Dr. Robert Samit had a vision, which was a pretty appropriate phenomenon, considering that he's an optometrist. He saw in the future a network of eye doctors, united under the banner of a single company that provides quality vision care—plus a huge selection of value-priced and designer eyewear frames—to patients throughout Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
Together with company president Sue Healey Downes, they now boast a whopping 51 locations throughout the region, each with a licensed Doctor of Optometry on hand. They equip this army of eye examiners with the latest technology. When a doctor determines that a corrective lens is called for, he or she prescribes them before MyEyeDr.'s team of eyecare consultants helps patients choose from a huge array of frames from such brands as Chanel, Oakley, and Ray Ban RX.

Today's Groupon gets you a fun-filled day for two at Dulles Golf Center & Sports Park for just $18 (fun normally costs $36). Head to Dulles for two rounds of mini-golf, two small buckets of balls for the driving range, and six batting cage tokens. Take a friend or your kids along to share the fun, or selfishly hoard the fun in case there's a fun shortage due to the depletion of the world's fun reserves.
At Sterling Golf and Swim Club, golfers send balls sailing down the tree-lined fairways of an 18-hole, par 54 golf course, and swimmers backstroke across two 25-meter pools. For nearly half a century, club-wielders have traversed past water and dodged bunkers at the executive course, giving the pines and weeping willows ample time to flourish, and the nonprofit club itself has existed for four decades. Two kiddie pools flank the club’s two larger pools, enabling wee ones to practice breathing through their gills while their older siblings butterfly down lanes, and a game room provides indoor entertainment. An adult lounge lets weary golfers relax in peace, and the clubhouse’s pro shop outfits players searching for golf balls whose dimples perfectly match their own.
Before Dr. Jason Winseck became a doctor of chiropractic medicine, he was a high school student with a debilitating sports injury. After waiting for his lower back pain to resolve itself, he went to a local chiropractor and received both an accurate diagnosis and fast relief. This experience inspired him to learn more about how chiropractic techniques worked, so he spent weeks shadowing his doctor after school and observing the physician's attentiveness with each patient. After high school, Jason enrolled in New York Chiropractic College and graduated in 2002 after enduring a challenging curriculum. He later opened Cascades Chiropractic, where he assuages bodily aches with adjustments and massages and clears out cellular waste with detoxifying treatments. When he isn't helping his patients achieve health, he maintains an active lifestyle by golfing, fishing, and running with his chocolate lab, which he bought at a candy store.
