Helmed by vision-boosting veteran Dr. Michael Lange, Lange Eye Care & Associates enhances on-the-fritz ocular orbs with a wide selection of fetching specs. The showroom furnishes frames ($69–$200) from popular brands such as Vera Bradley, Charmant, Claiborne, and Essence, attractively encircling eyes and lending wearers an air of wisdom only otherwise attainable by being friends with an owl. Lenses come in a range of styles and materials, from single-vision plastic lenses ($77+) to no-line bifocal plastic lenses ($285+), which correct sight with discrete dual prescriptions. Friendly opticians aid guests in their quest for the perfect pair of glasses, offering suggestions based on look, lifestyle, and professional need to whip off frames in baffled surprise.
High-fashion frames from Prada, Cartier, and Michael Kors line the walls at Absolutely Optical and Eye Trends. The 3,000 designer-quality frames in stock on any given day include an extensive selection crafted from long-lasting materials such as titanium, stainless steel, or virgin zyl plastic imbued with fade-proof color. Technicians wander through the shop, waiting to fit the frames with distortion-free sunglass lenses, the newest generation of antireflection lenses, or googly eyes so it seems like you are awake while guarding a boring art museum. For prescriptions, patrons can consult the onsite optometrist, Dr. Jay Weil, who not only tests vision but also bolsters eye health with procedures ranging from hydrating treatments for dryness to LASIK surgery.
The trio of board-certified eye surgeons at The Weinstock Laser Eye Center combines specialties in cataract surgery, LASIK, and corneal surgery to treat a full range of ocular ailments. Each of the doctors’ prestigious training is evident in the extensive curriculum vitae, which includes post-graduate studies, residencies, and fellowships at such institutes as Johns Hopkins and The Eye Institute of West Florida. The team’s eyesight-sharpening offerings include the LASIK procedure and corneal transplants, along with astigmatism correction that defuzzes views with toric-lens implants. Surgeons also utilize 3-D-guided microsurgical systems in the operating room for the precision removal of cataracts and particularly small monocles.
Sandava Spa is an upscale spa featuring a state-of-the-art fitness center, and eco-friendly, organic products. Slough off a dull dermis with the Eco Sea Scrub & Rub, which exfoliates the complete corpus with sea salt and nourishing organic algae and closes with a 30-minute neck, shoulder, and back massage that's more relaxing than knitting in a bubble bath.

Otherwise, appease extremities before they go on strike with a relaxing, waterless manicure and pedicure. A heated massage bed will romance your back as you sit back and watch Sandava's aestheticians shape nails, curtail cuticles, massage appendages, and remove calluses before buffing or lacquering nails into 20 tiny vanity mirrors. While there, feel free to nosh on complimentary spa bites and wine in the relaxation lounge in the afternoon, and bask in the modern fitness center's impressive intercoastal views.
