Combining the personal touch of an optometrist-owned practice with the affordable pricing offered at optical superstores, Today's Vision helps keep customers' eyesight crystal clear. Pooling their resources under the Today's Vision aegis, the independent operators that own each location are able to offer personalized care while taking advantage of large-scale discounts on lenses, LASIK eye surgeries, and novelty eye charts that are printed all fuzzy-like. Those looking for fetching frames can browse through extensive selections from such purveyors as Oakley, De Rigo, and Liz Claiborne.
Flames pour over the hood of Dr. Melissa Sommers' 1952 mat-black Plymouth Suburban. She and her coworkers remain calm as the airbrushed flames aren't designed to do damage, instead symbolizing the burning importance of regular eye exams.
Like her flamboyant hot rod's lunch-hour journeys through town, Dr. Sommers' attentive eye care is a neighborhood staple. Aided by her ever-growing team of optometrists, she brings 20 years of eye-examining prowess to her practice. She checks patients for signs of aberration and disease, and furnishes them with prescription glasses, contacts, or refurbished corneas courtesy of LASIK surgery.
Holding doctorates in optometry and biochemistry, Dr. Zeinep O. Echetebu dispenses her extensive knowledge of vision to patients at both Gulfgate Vision and Gulf Vision. To assess eye health and help guests find the optimal form of vision correction, her services range from annual exams to visual-field-screening analyses for early detection of diseases. The staff then fits eyes for contact lenses, or leads patients through a stock of designer frames from brands such as Burberry, Juicy Couture, Gucci, and Versace to ensure that clients look stylish when they see themselves clearly in the mirror.
