Before they opened Character Eyez, licensed opticians Bob and Linda Jack worked for a leading eyewear provider. Today, they extract only the best practices from this experience to run their independent shop, such as working directly with top designers and affixing frames with precision lenses by Varilux and Carl Zeiss. Their cozy stone building is located within Naples Bay Resort, where a striped awning beckons passersby and serves as a landing pad for nearsighted seagulls. Inside, staffers stock shelves with designer frames by Swissflex, Versace, and Ray-Ban.
