Each Eye Doctor?s Optical Outlets location is doctor-owned, uniting the staff with a common vision to sharpen sight and boost eye health. Eye examinations reveal prescriptions and uncover any other ocular problems. After patients choose a new set of lenses, the in-house technicians get to work crafting them in the shop?s own lab rather than sending them off to be made during a summer camp?s arts and crafts day. Sundry designer frames border eyes in looks from Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs to Nike and Harley Davidson, and there is usually a trio of technicians in the shop, enabling multiple clients to summon help with a single pigeon call.
At Neo Laser Medical Spa, two physicians, a registered nurse, and a licensed aesthetician use the latest technology to beautify skin. Their multiple laser systems form a cosmic tag-team that can rejuvenate bodies from head to toe. A fractional CO2 laser dramatically reduces pigmentation problems and other signs of aging, a Fraxel laser reduces wrinkles with minimal downtime, and a CoolTouch laser gently diminishes acne and acne scarring. The team also employs lasers to eradicate spider veins and unwanted hair and performs laser-assisted SmartLipo procedures that are less invasive than traditional liposuction.
But lasers aren't the only tools in Neo Laser's anti-aging kit. Clinical staffers combat wrinkles with Botox and dermal fillers, and customize facials or medical peels with petrochemical- and paraben-free Image Skincare products. The medical spa's complimentary consultations include a skin analysis with a detailed written report and photos, as well as 30 minutes with an aesthetician to discuss the best way to remove a mole or a mustache drawn on in permanent marker.
For the past 15 years, Oviedo and Port St. John Eye Care's knowledgeable staff—led by board-certified optometrists Dr. Robert S. Webster and Dr. Stephen J. Thomas—has been striving to treat each patient that walks through their doors like family. They do so by taking the time to learn each patient's history, which helps them better assess ocular conditions during preliminary tests, visual-acuity and refraction measurements, and eye-health evaluations. Once prescriptions are known, the staff helps patients sort through over 1,000 frames, including high-end brands such as Gucci and Vera Wang, to find their ideal match. The staff shows equal love for the environment by taking on green initiatives, such as switching to all-natural cleaners, using recyclable polyethylene bags, and declaring fern the new pink.
Although the board-certified optometrists and ophthalmologists at Eye Clinic and Laser Institute have been sharpening patients' vision for more than 30 years, their technology is up-to-the-minute. Their advanced techniques include NearVision CK, a procedure that reshapes the cornea with radiofrequency, and ReZoom intraocular lens implants to correct cataracts. LASIK laser eye surgery corrects a range of vision difficulties while requiring less recovery time than after using a Thighmaster.
But the real centerpiece of the office isn't technological. It's the individual care they give to each of their patients. Before performing any of their signature vision-enhancing services, they sit down with patients for a consultation and thorough exam to ensure their candidacy for any procedure, or to make further recommendations based on their findings.
Radiant complexions and healthy eyes go together like peanut butter and jelly, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, or chocolate and just about anything. Well, they do when it comes to the St. Cloud and Kissimmee Eye Centers and their adjoining RejuveRX Medspas, where a staff of committed professionals keeps clients both seeing and looking like they did in their youth with medical eye care and advanced aesthetic treatments. RejuveRX Medspa’s Dr. Ly T. Nguyen is the center’s surgeon and board-certified ophthalmologist, and oversees the spa’s medical procedures, from dermal fillers to the skin-resurfacing powers of a Fraxel Re:pair laser. Aestheticians focus on refreshing skin with microdermabrasion, acne treatments, and softly sung lullabies about sleepy pores.
The eyewear experts at Sunglass Gallery outfit customers' delicate visual organs with high-end sun-shielding spectacles designed to block UV rays while making a bold fashion statement. Squinting-weary patrons can gawk at and try on more than 30 brands of darkened lenses from designers determined to make eyeballs so stylish that earlobes burn with envy. Make your eyes the talk of the ophthalmologist’s office with sightseers from Tom Ford, Versace, Gucci, Diesel, and more. Or, arm orbs against the glare of daylight or flashbulbs with more moderately priced shades from Levi's (starting at $29.95) and New Balance (starting at $39.95).
