1st Eye Care
For more than 30 years, 1st Eye Care's trained team of optical technicians has sharpened eyes’ style and focus. State-of-the-art diagnostic equipment assists the technicians during eye exams, which check each eye for signs of glaucoma and clear fingerprints from smudged lenses.
Appointments don’t stop there—the staff prides itself on outfitting each pair of eyes with its complimentary frame, and they will take as long as necessary to walk each customer through the boutique’s eclectic collection. Personal style and current trends converge in frames from designers such as Prada, Coach, and Nautica and prescription sunglasses styled by Ray-Ban and Ed Hardy. After customers select a set of frames or invisible contact lenses, lab technicians housed in a 7,000-square-foot optical laboratory carefully customize them to match the unique contours of the wearer’s face.
