Even if it takes you hours to select the perfect frames from i2i eyecare’s vast selection—which boasts designer styles from Ray Ban, Tory Burch, and Vera Wang—it typically takes the optician 60 minutes to fit them with prescription lenses. Helmed by the on-site optometrist Dr. Lisanne Close-Rogers, the center’s one-hour lenses help streamline the shopping process, sending patrons quickly back into the world without running into the door on the way out. She draws on more than 15 years of optometry experience to administer eye exams and fit contact lenses, and also screens for and treats common ocular diseases. Crafting customized for progressive lenses may require more time.

Licensed doctors Tim Erickson, Lori Portnoy, and Eric Eickhorst eschew needle-based acupuncture, instead easing myriad ailments with gentle electrical stimulation, fingertip pressure, and metallic balls. After a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment itinerary, patients receive full spine x-rays and an exam. Next, a brief relief treatment stretches spines to help reduce muscle spasms and aches while preparing patients for International Crabwalk to Work Day. The acupuncture treatment usually lasts fewer than two minutes and helps to attack causes of corporeal discomfort, such as ulcers, abnormal blood pressure, and headaches.
