At Primary EyeCare Associates and EyeWear Gallery, four optometrists diagnose and correct vision problems with state-of-the-art services and instruments, including the NIDEK TonoRef II Autorefractor/Keratometer. They collaborate with patients to design personalized treatment plans, considering the patient’s lifestyle and eye condition before recommending LASIK and prescription eyewear. Frame stylists and optometric technicians support the process, whether recommending designer frames or teaching clients how to insert contact lenses.
Opened in 2008 by experienced doctors Richard and Angela Olson, Olson Eye Care offers top-notch customer service and a wide selection of stylish frames at its Madison and Waupun locations. Olson’s shelves are fully stocked with high-quality products from Nike, Gucci, and other designer brands, plus the original monocle worn by the Monopoly guy. The friendly opticians treat both children and adults, performing eye exams, LASIK consultations, and contact fittings.
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.
Since opening shop in 1951, the optical specialists at Dr. Elliot and Webb have worked to sharpen their patients' vision while looking after their eye health. Routine eye exams scout the eye inside and out for any signs of glaucoma or cataracts while gauging prescriptions. The team caters to the needs of each individual by discussing Lasik procedures during free consultations and helping them pick out frames best suited to their face shape.
Started in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle, the nationally recognized and trusted franchise now operates in nearly 800 company and franchise locations nationwide. The master visionaries at Pearle are well trained in assisting all bespectacled beings, from casual librarians to picky, temperamental Cyclopes. Equip a corrective pair of Essentials frames starting at $99.95, or slip on a pair of designer eye enhancers, such as those by Anne Klein ($149.95+), DKNY ($159.95+), RayBan ($179.95+) or Versace ($205+). Single-vision lenses adjust a singular field of vision and while prices and availability may vary by location, they usually start at around $130 (for plastic scratch-resistant) and $215 for PearleTHIN, while specialty anti-glare PearleTHIN complete lenses ($315) are lightweight heavyweights.
The eye experts at Dr. Wagner’s Southridge Optical remedy blurry vision with prescription lenses fitted into more than 1,000 styles of brand-name frames. During a comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Wagner runs peepers through the gamut, assessing eye health and calibrating prescriptions with high-tech equipment, multiple stages of testing, and retinal photographs. Afterward, the optometrist guides visitors through lens options that can solve near- and-farsightedness and help wearers to differentiate between their mailboxes and the family dog. Clients then select face-flattering frames by such designers as Coach ($179.95– $319.95), Versace ($199.95– $529.95), and Harley Davidson ($159.95– $199.95). Prescription eyeglasses are typically ready for pickup in about a week, so in the meantime, clients should string together temporary glasses using Coke bottles, superglue, and glitter.
