Before Dr. Mary Anne Peck founded Eyecare and Eyewear in 1984, she earned her doctorate in optometry at the University of Houston College of Optometry and interned at Fort Carson Army Base. Her associate, Dr. Karen Allen, earned her doctorate at the University of Houston and traveled to Georgia for an internship at Fort Benning. After putting her skills to work at a large ophthalmology practice in Florida, she moved back to Dallas, where she practiced refractive and cataract surgery at a surgery center.
Together, Drs. Peck and Allen helm a staff of assistants and therapeutic opticians who stay on top of their ever-changing field by constantly studying and never shutting their eyelids. Their vision-improving services include prescriptions crafted with wave-front technology and retinal exams performed without dilation. In addition to contact lenses, they stock stylish frames by brands such as Gucci, Rayban, and Calvin Klein.
At Salt Miracle Wellness Center, visitors read, nap, or simply relax. And these everyday tasks are imbued with health benefits, thanks to the setting: small rooms made with Dead Sea salt. Clients sit as soothing wave sounds play, all the while breathing in salt-infused vapor. Aside from the calming effects of simply imitating a cured ham, sessions can combat chronic respiratory issues and help restore bodily balance. And if guests wish to further promote their wellness, the center also offers massages as well as skincare services, reflexology treatments, and complimentary consultations and tours.
Dr. Jeff Angobaldo goes out of his way to personally meet with every person who comes into Renaissance Plastic Surgery, whether they're considering a nip, tuck, or Botox. At other clinics these consultations are often performed by a physician’s assistant or scarecrow in a lab coat, but Dr. Angobaldo believes in the importance of getting to know his patients and understanding their beauty goals. He’s able to whittle away unwanted bulges with liposuction and put sagging features back into place with eyelid lifts and full facelifts. In his spare time, he offers his pro bono services to under-privileged patients in need of reconstructive work and travels to locales such as Bolivia and Haiti to donate his medical expertise to humanitarian efforts.
Amid soothing sage-colored walls, patrons buckle in for body transforming in wraps designed to help shed weight and burn fat. Technicians gently fold their clients into toasty wraps that work to help sculpt leaner, smoother silhouettes capable of creating more aerodynamic shadow puppets. The shop’s repertoire of miocrodermabrasion, facial, waxing, and tanning treatments allows clients to ensure no inch goes unbeautified, and a collection of weight loss and anti-aging products for sale helps customers keep up the primping process long after guests leave the spa.
Targeting fat one pound at a time, Metabolic Research Center gives clients the tools for long-term and sustained weight loss. The team of board-certified physicians, registered dieticians, and out-of-work Soviet prizefighters built the basis of the center's weight-loss plans out of the research of Dr. George Blackburn, a pioneer in the science of nutrition. Dr. Blackburn found that crash dieting elicits a "famine" reaction in the human body, causing it to retain stores of fat and accumulate a layer of dust. Metabolic Research Center's customized programs avoid stringent dieting. They combine smart cooking and grocery shopping with techniques for stress management to address the emotional side of eating, making slimness sustainable.
