Vision Source Philadelphia’s network of boutiques and optometrists’ offices protects patients’ vision with exams and eyewear. Each location’s optical experts care for eyesight with treatments such as laser vision correction, glaucoma diagnoses, and emergency care, as well as assessing prescriptions. Then, galleries grace nose-bridges with frames from brands such as Ted Baker, Gucci, Dior, and Armani.
Skippack Eye Care's optometry experts stylishly festoon faces with designer brands that abolish blurry vision and enhance ocular allure. Frames from illustrious designers such as Prada, BCBG, and Banana Republic give eyes a more opulent outlook than trimming them with tinsel ($199+), and expertly formed lenses transform fuzzy images into crisp works of art ($65+). Frame fiends can find prescription or standard sunglasses from Ray-Ban and more to defend retinas from the sun's retina-tanning rays. In case of inadvertent skull growth or Three Stooges rehearsals, every eyeglass purchase comes with complimentary repairs and adjustments.
Founded in 1914, the original New York City location of Sterling Optical doled out frames amid the Ford Model Ts and paperboys that swarmed the city's financial district. The original band of eyesight experts weathered years of economic depression by impressing customers with speedy, full-service vision care, later launching a second store near Washington, DC. Today, a century of steady franchise expansion has given rise to almost 200 store locations in 23 states. Most locations continue the tradition of offering one-stop optical services, giving customers access to exams and onsite labs that manufacture glasses in one hour. The spectacle provider has been named one of the nation's leading franchises by Entrepreneur magazine.
For more than 90 years, Sterling Optical’s physicians and eyeglass specialists have paired peepers with stylish brand-name frames. Men, women, children, and seeing-impaired mannequins can browse frames by Coach, Michael Kors, Tom Ford, and Kenneth Cole (designer frames are $229+), among others such as Peachtree Eyewear ($119). Eyewear technicians forge lenses in about one hour before bestowing customers with two pairs of custom frames—one for daily wear and one for incognito trips to the grocery store. If within 30 days of their purchase patrons tire of frames with x-ray vision, Sterling Optical will gladly replace said specs with another pair of equal or lesser value.
Our comprehensive eye examinations evaluate your eyes, both inside and out, for any potential disorders or diseases. Your visual skills and abilities are carefully evaluated and appropriate treatment is prescribed - whether it's medication, lenses or low vision rehabilitation.
Though there are 130 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. Owned and operated since 1972, when a small group of friends started it in Philadelphia, aiming for quality eyewear manufacturing as well as customer service. These same friends, aided by a few family members, still lead the franchise today. They ensure that each location adheres to their original principles and mandates for mustard-colored shag carpets.
In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, D&G, and Versace. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses?whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites?they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.
