Dr. Aman Sappal and his team of ocular experts elucidate vision with new glasses and contact lenses, vision therapy, glaucoma treatments, and other sight services. Comprehensive eye exams test vision essentials, such as refractive errors, visual fields, and pupils, before doling out fresh eyewear prescriptions. New lenses, from single vision to no-line bifocals, revel beneath anti-glare or anti-opaque coatings as they perch in stylish frames from designers such as Coach, Gucci, Calvin Klein, and Juicy Couture.
Elite Vision Center prides itself on its quick turnaround on prescription orders—thanks, in part, to an in-house lens-crafting lab. The full-service vision center's sales staff, meanwhile, helps patients find the high-end frames for these prescriptions. A resident independent optometrist tests for visual acuity and eye disorders, holding office hours throughout the week—including evenings and weekends.
Drs. Barry Concool and Marc Bosem helm the Correctvision Laser Institute and have performed more than 40,000 LASIK procedures combined. And though he is eager to help their patients cast off their glasses, contacts, and opera lorgnettes with LASIK, that's not all they do.
Teaming up with Dr. Michelle Gonzalez—the institute's Spanish-speaking clinical director and optometrist—they offer a wide range of corrective-vision procedures, such as cataract surgery and conductive keratoplasty, which uses radio frequency instead of lasers to improve farsightedness. They even smooth over wrinkles with Botox, dermal fillers, and spackling paste.
SilverLakes Eye Care's board-certified optometric physician, Farin Boyle, has the knowledge and experience to treat a wide variety of eye conditions. After earning his doctorate from Nova Southeastern University, Dr. Boyle spent two years at the renowned Rand Eye Institute, training extensively in surgical procedures for cataracts and glaucoma, as well as vision-correcting LASIK surgery. As a National Board Examiner, Dr. Boyle is responsible for determining whether or not graduating doctors receive optometry licensure.
Dr. Boyle and his staff use advanced technology to complete eye exams, employing computerized instruments that, like the robotic third and fourth arms Mary Poppins wore, are designed to supplement rather than replace personalized care. The office also features an onsite lab that can fabricate most prescriptions in about an hour.
