Rinkov Eyecare sends their customers into the world with a clearer view by affixing customized lenses into their wide selection of designer frames.

Rinkov Eyecare Center accepts clients on Saturdays and during evening hours at most of their locations to accommodate work, school, and storm-chasing schedules. Although this Groupon is not valid toward eye examinations, Rinkov's optometrists can also evaluate the vision of patients lacking a current prescription for an additional fee.

If you're willing to let someone operate on your eyes with a laser, what's the one thing they better have? Steady hands are important, sure, but how about experience?

Across its network, the company has independent veteran surgeons who are all LASIK experts.
Technology has played a major role in LVI?s success, as well. Each location relies on FDA-approved laser technology that results in minimal discomfort and short recovery times, in addition to helping many patients see 20/20 or better.
A multispecialty clinic, Gahanna Vision Center delivers quality eye care and fits patients with stylish frames by designers such as Ray-Ban and Nike. A customized i.Scription visual analysis helps craft a more perfect lens by meticulously mapping the eye and sussing out each orb’s unique aberrations and responsiveness to made-up colors, like octarine. This innovative technology may improve perception of colors, distinction of contrasts, and low-light vision. The facility's lifestyle eye exam thoroughly audits socket-dwellers, and features optional custom tests for dry eyes, cataracts, and glaucoma.
Though SEE Eyewear?s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a-kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop?s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn?t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.
