Lord Eye Center’s optical emporium, housing more than 1,000 frames by 30 brand-name designers, hosts a skilled optometrist who remedies near- and far-sightedness with spectacles custom fit in an on-site lab. Visitors can hobnob with Dr. Neal Eylar as he unveils a variety of basic vision-enhancing lenses that includes single-vision ($69–$89), progressive ($159–$179), bifocal ($99–$119), and trifocal options ($119–$139). The certified specialist then fine-tunes frames from tough designers such as Harley Davidson ($128+), sweet designers such as Candies ($128+), and sporty designers such as Nike ($198+) in about one hour. After receiving their visual enrichment, patrons can embark into the world fresh faced, wide eyed, and able to discern an adorable puppy from the neighbor’s mailbox.
Lord Eye Center
It takes Lord Eye Center's opticians one hour to produce a pair of prescription glasses. Working at an onsite lab, they fit frames from more than 30 designers, using an electronic tracing device to render the thinnest lenses possible. The shop's optometrists can also prescribe various types of contact lenses, from continuous wear and disposable to bifocals and colored lenses. Dr. Whit Lord, owner of Lord Eye Center, scouts out the latest cornea-hugging designs as a member of several advisory panels for contact-lens manufacturers.
