Helping customers improve their vision is the main concern of the optometrists and eye-care professionals at Eye Boutique, who provide preventive screenings and help choosing from their more than 1,800 frames at each location. In each shop, licensed doctors of optometry scan eyes with comprehensive exams before diagnosing issues or prescribing high-definition Zeiss lenses and contact lenses from Optix and Acuvue. Designer frames from Guess, Nike, and Kenneth Cole house lenses fashionably, and Teflon protective layers help guard lenses from scratches and reduce glare. Sunglasses from brands such as Ray-Ban and Coach also protect eyes from harmful UV rays, creating an accessory that is both stylish and useful, like a diamond with a job.
Since opening shop in 1951, the optical specialists at Dr. Elliot and Webb have worked to sharpen their patients' vision while looking after their eye health. Routine eye exams scout the eye inside and out for any signs of glaucoma or cataracts while gauging prescriptions. The team caters to the needs of each individual by discussing Lasik procedures during free consultations and helping them pick out frames best suited to their face shape.
At Primary EyeCare Associates and EyeWear Gallery, four optometrists diagnose and correct vision problems with state-of-the-art services and instruments, including the NIDEK TonoRef II Autorefractor/Keratometer. They collaborate with patients to design personalized treatment plans, considering the patient’s lifestyle and eye condition before recommending LASIK and prescription eyewear. Frame stylists and optometric technicians support the process, whether recommending designer frames or teaching clients how to insert contact lenses.
For nearly 20 years, Dr. Julie Johnson has been at the helm of Delafield Vision Center, where she faithfully serves the citizens of Lake County and beyond. Dr. Julie and her staff work together to outfit their clients in the ideal set of frames from a selection that includes high-end designers such as Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and Tory Burch. Delafield also stocks a selection of exclusive designs that boast the latest in optical fashions, including placing a mini fedora over each eye. In addition to standard eye exams, Dr. Julie is proficient in adolescent optometry as well as performing special exams for those interested in pursuing LASIK surgery.
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.
Wisconsin Vision’s crew screens eyes for aberrations and illnesses and presides over an extensive selection of designer frames and lenses. At each location, optometrists perform thorough exams, producing prescriptions that recommend single-vision or progressive lenses from Zeiss. Newly ground lenses can then be fitted into any number of designer frames from the likes of Ray-Ban, Coach, or Calvin Klein. Antiscratch coatings protect the glass panes, and Transitions lenses allow any set of specs to turn into sunglasses when one steps outside or auditions for a classic-rock band.
