Dr. McNeel of McNeel Eye Center carefully examines eyes and his knowledgeable staff outfits clients in designer frames. After the doctor inspects eyes for disease, nearsightedness, or farsightedness, patients read either an eye chart or a romance novel through a machine designed to determine eyeglass prescriptions. Depending on their prescription, customers may choose to don single-vision lenses ($85 on average) or premium progressive lenses ($270 on average) fitted within a choice of designer frames from the likes of Nike, Armani, and Diane Von Fürstenberg ($40–$350). Turnaround time for frames and lenses may be anywhere between 2 and 10 business days, dependent on the type of lens and the lunar cycle.

After starting out in immunology—and collaborating on discoveries that are still used in cancer research today—Dr. McNeel found himself drawn to another calling: optometry. Nearly two decades later, he has racked up more than 30,000 office visits with LASIK and cataract surgery patients and is still counting, even though he ran out of fingers and toes after patient no. 1,000. In addition to providing surgical aftercare, Dr. McNeel assesses eye health during regular exams and treats patients for concerns such as dry-eye disease, an area in which he specializes.
Eyewear specialists help clients navigate a wealth of frames from brands including Prada, Versace, and Maui Jim. The also perform fittings to ensure that contact lenses don’t need to be hemmed by hand. In addition to caring for eyes, McNeel Eye Center thickens lashes with Latisse and combats wrinkles with Botox.
