Fifty years ago, Pearle Vision was a tiny eyecare practice in Savannah, Georgia, run by Dr. Stanley Pearle. Since then, it's expanded to myriad practices across the country?including this one in Toms River. Helmed by Drs. Randy Nissinoff and Michael Iuliano, the practice outfits eyes with face-flattering designer frames and sunglasses, all with prescription lenses. Each pair comes with 30 days of no-questions returns and a lifetime of free fit adjustments. For extra convenience, the practice also stays open until 8 p.m. on weekdays, so visitors can pop in after work.

After analyzing face shape, complexions, and assessing the load-bearing capacity of dainty nose bridges, eye stylists match peepers with a flattering basic frame ($59+) or designer selections by Michael Kors ($239) or Ray-Ban ($119+).

Diamond Vision’s quartet of doctors boasts extensive experience with LASIK’s CustomVue IntraLase eye-correction procedure—so extensive that they regularly teach it to other doctors. Each doctor has completed a long process of fellowship training, licensing, and certification to refurbish eyes suffering from varying degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Though controlled low-temperature lasers and fine blades are the main components of their medical toolkits, they also implement iris registration to customize procedures and measure tissue properties with devices such as an Ocular Response Analyzer and Oculus Pentacam camera.

NY NJ Lasik stretches its five fully equipped clinics, including a Manhattan location for fuzzy-sighted New Yorkers, across its two neighboring East Coast states. Each facility is presided over by its own board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in the use of laser-based technology, such as LASIK and PRK, to restore eyesight lost to astigmatisms and far- or nearsightedness. Over the past 15 years, they have performed upward of 50,000 of the outpatient laser procedures, turning once-squinty patients into crystal-clear seers.
The clinics? lineup of expert eye docs includes Dr. Mark Buchsbaum and Dr. Irida Llambiri, both of whom regularly engage prospective LASIK patients in complimentary consultations. During these brief meetings, they either deem the patient to be a suitable candidate for LASIK, recommend an alternative surgery, or advise patients to remove their photographic memory's lens cap.
