The master visionaries are well trained in assisting all bespectacled beings, from casual librarians to picky, temperamental cyclopes. Equip a corrective pair of Essential frames ($119.95–$139.95), slip on a pair of designer eye enhancers from Ray-Ban ($179.95–$209.95), or bedeck unadorned peepers with high-end frames from Versace ($229.95–$309.95).
