Galper Eye Center
Galper Eye Center serves as a gallery for wearable contemporary art. The flying-saucer-shaped lights hanging from the ceiling illuminate a collection of glasses frames that break fashion molds. Rather than simply gluing colored macaroni to Ray-Ban frames, the staff strives to stock particularly creative examples of eyewear. They've even held a design showcase for Ziggy and Jean Reno, encouraging guests to browse the collection of hard-to-find specs.
Though its style may be edgy, the center focuses on classic convenience when it comes to eye care. Its optometrist provides exams, contact-lens fittings, and services for pre- and post-op clients, and its vision-therapy programs aid those with binocular vision problems.
