For half a century, the opticians and frame consultants at Crown Opticians have balanced designer frames with specialized lenses upon the noses of near- and far-sighted clients. Frames by designers like Gucci, Prada, Christian Dior, and Tom Ford suspend from clear display hooks on the walls of the boutique's interior. To supplement the advanced reflective technology of mirrors, the office's innovative Optikam lets clients compare side-by-side pictures of themselves in different glasses. Instead of snapping shaky self-shots with cell phones or point-and-shoots, clients pose in front of the Optikam's lens, posing for multi-part shots that reveal each pair's most flattering angles. The camera also serves an analytical purpose, silently taking precise measurements used by doctors for final fittings and processing.
