During the 35- to 40-minute comprehensive eye exam, a staffer checks the client's eye pressure, depth perception, and refraction and dilates the pupils to screen for glaucoma. The exam also includes a color-vision test to ensure that patients can distinguish between colors. Patrons then select lenses and browse frames by brands such as Riserva ($199+), Ray-Ban ($244+), Jai Kudo ($229+), and Coach ($300). The sunglasses selection includes designer pairs from Gant ($253), Armani Exchange ($274), Prada ($373), and other brands.
Visual Eyes: A Member of Vision Source
Alexander C. Nnabue knows that caring for eyes is really about caring for people. After earning doctor of optometry degrees from both Imo State University in Nigeria and the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, Dr. Nnabue found his own company to help restore patients' ocular health. What began in 1994 as a single storefront has blossomed into six Visual Eyes locations throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Today, the caring doctor leads biannual medical mission trips to Africa, including one trip that, according to a 2006 Nigeria World article, put thousands of eyeglasses and medications in the hands of those in need.
At Visual Eyes, he and his fellow optometrists use advanced technology to diagnose and treat various conditions. A trained technician manufactures lenses at an in-house lab, and Dr. Nnabue specializes in orthokeratology, a vision-correcting process that eliminates the need to wear glasses, contacts, or a sign that says, "Sorry for walking into you; I forgot my contacts or glasses." The team also prides itself on showcasing the latest designer frames, including Marc by Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, and Guess.
