Dr. Bita Sabripour's medical colleagues turn to her when they have blurry vision. Whether it's because of her training at two of the world's premier eye centers, the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins and Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, or because her office is completely free of solar eclipses, medical professionals recognize the high-quality care one receives at her vision center. From basic exams to postoperative eye care, Dr. Sabripour and her support staff help patients through every step of their ophthalmologic journeys. This support extends to outfitting clients with frames and contact lenses.
More than 80 years ago, Jack Cohen started selling designer eyewear from a pushcart on Orchard Street. After eight decades, that cart has expanded into more than 100 storefronts whose frames runt the gamut from budget-friendly styles to designer specs from Versace, Fendi, and Calvin Klein. The expert staff helps clients match their glasses to their face shapes and lifestyles. Meanwhile, onsite optometrists dole out prescriptions and screen eyes for diseases such as glaucoma and cat cataracts, which make you only see cats.
At each of Advanced Vision Care's five locations, a team of optometric physicians examines peepers of all age brackets for signs of aberration or disease. They then furnish patients with prescriptions that can be formed into contact lenses or slung into stylish frames from the likes of Prada, Lacoste, and BCBG. The staff also performs Lasik consultations, in which they determine candidacy, recommend a Lasik doctor, and provide a series of post-op checks. Most locations house a multilingual team, who can answer questions or reflect on metaphysical quandaries in English, Spanish, or Hebrew.
Though there are 130 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. Owned and operated since 1972, when a small group of friends started it in Philadelphia, aiming for quality eyewear manufacturing as well as customer service. These same friends, aided by a few family members, still lead the franchise today. They ensure that each location adheres to their original principles and mandates for mustard-colored shag carpets.
In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, D&G, and Versace. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses?whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites?they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.
The refractive-surgery experts at The Center for LASIK employ Allegretto Wave laser technology to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Board-certified ophthalmologists and cofounders Dr. Randy Burks and Dr. Raymond Gailitis each boast more than 15 years of experience in the business of bringing baby blues back into focus. Alongside their compassionate staff, they ensure comfort and confidence within a fully equipped facility. Clients can expect significantly improved vision, which often eliminates the need for glasses and contacts, and grants the ability to easily read more than minds.
Dr. Aman Sappal and his team of ocular experts elucidate vision with new glasses and contact lenses, vision therapy, glaucoma treatments, and other sight services. Comprehensive eye exams test vision essentials, such as refractive errors, visual fields, and pupils, before doling out fresh eyewear prescriptions. New lenses, from single vision to no-line bifocals, revel beneath anti-glare or anti-opaque coatings as they perch in stylish frames from designers such as Coach, Gucci, Calvin Klein, and Juicy Couture.
