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.
Instructors at North Shore Yoga and therapists at Integrated Healing Center promote holistic well-being with a one-two punch of movement-based classes and salutary bodywork sessions. Owner Sharyn Galindo honed her yogic talents over 10 years of dedicated practice, including occasional sojourns to Mysore, India and Thailand where she studied Ashtanga techniques while accumulating enough frequent-flyer miles to vacation on Jupiter. Under her tutelage, North Shore Yoga instructors emphasize Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga styles, helping students deepen stretches by heating rooms up to 84 degrees for the majority of sessions. To augment a lifestyle of physical wellness, Integrated Health Center's therapists dole out healing bodywork and alternative treatments, including acupuncture and massage sessions that can help address clients' individual needs by incorporating aromatherapy or organic, herb-infused oils.
