Eyes Nouveau founder and president Dr. Ron Davidson, O.D. helms a squad of eye specialists armed with advanced technology and a wide selection of frames. With computerized instruments, the professionals peer deep into internal structures, then inspect the exterior of the eye for obstructions, such as still-affixed lens caps. The team also assists guests as they pair lenses with frames from such designers as Oliver Peoples, Tiffany, Bebe, and Ray-Ban.
Eyeworks's expansive selection of fetching frames and vision-correcting lenses focuses malfunctioning ocular orbs with aplomb. Frames from such brands as Tiffany ($99), Dolce & Gabbana ($199), and Tommy Hilfiger ($189) come in a plethora of shapes and sizes to complement patrons' differing styles and number of noses. Capri’s Flexure children's frames ($200) comfortably fit youthful faces, and luxury frames from the likes of Prada ($399) accessorize faces with opulent design. Lenses range from basic, single-vision plastic options ($111) to advanced polycarbonate sight-sharpeners ($251), with optional anti-glare technology to ease sunlit escapades and protect eyes against the gleaming smiles of tooth fairies.
Staffed by passionate opticians, Clearview Eyecare and Laser Center serves clients with family-friendly eye care and crafts new qlasses fast with one-hour service available on most prescriptions. The shop stocks more than 1,000 different styles of adult and children’s frames, all backed by a price-protection guarantee. Lenses ($60+) and colorful eyeborders from Adidas, Kipling, and Reflections ($90+) make fashion statements without landing wallets in the emergency room. Chic designer specs from Ted Baker, Vera Wang, Guess, and other brands serve as both a trendy accessory and a means for preventing customers from mistaking a garishly dressed friend for a Christmas tree.
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.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
