Since its founding in 1961, Pearle Vision has grown from a single office in Savannah, Georgia, to a nationwide chain with more than 600 locations. Each store maintains the core values of attentive customer care and expedited service on which the company was founded. Optometrists sharpen patients' vision by first assessing eye acuity and health via thorough exams. Then, staff members help you pick out face-flattering frames from high-end brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Caviar, and Ray-Ban. Lenses are crafted from materials ranging from plastic to ultra-lightweight polycarbonate.
Drs. Barry Concool and Marc Bosem helm the Correctvision Laser Institute and have performed more than 40,000 LASIK procedures combined. And though he is eager to help their patients cast off their glasses, contacts, and opera lorgnettes with LASIK, that's not all they do.
Teaming up with Dr. Michelle Gonzalez—the institute's Spanish-speaking clinical director and optometrist—they offer a wide range of corrective-vision procedures, such as cataract surgery and conductive keratoplasty, which uses radio frequency instead of lasers to improve farsightedness. They even smooth over wrinkles with Botox, dermal fillers, and spackling paste.
True to its name, Vision World operates on a global scale within the field of optometry. Since 1981, Dr. Jeffrey Reisch and Dr. Mark Gendal have tackled everything from routine exams and contact-lens fittings to emergency treatments and LASIK care. With a specialty in pediatric eyecare, patients of all ages can choose from a selection of designer frames for every budget.
Dr. Gary Goberbille of Eyesite Vision Center isn't satisfied with simply peering into the pupil with a little handheld light. Instead, he relies on advanced technology during his exams. Board-certified to spot a host of eye diseases, he photographs the back of the eyeball with Optomap retinal equipment, which not only reveal tumors and swallowed contact lenses, but telegraph ailments such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
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.
