Need specs to define your look? Insist on precisely gauging your eyesight? Either way, this "gallery of fine eyewear from around the world" could be your grail. Sharp-eyed trendsetters Philip Schletter, OD, and his partner, wife Delia, comb the globe for distinctive, flattering frames made from the lightest, thinnest, most flexible materials, which of late include hingeless and bulletproof models. Can't settle on something from among the lustrous metals and bold, colorful plastics? Then consider doing what the doc's celebrity clients do, and codesign a one-of-a-kind pair with his expertise. Doc Schletter claims to be the go-to guy "for people who know where the edge is and aren't afraid to go beyond." Besides exercising his creativity, he uses state-of-the-art medical techniques such as wave-front analysis, which can reveal fourteen possible eye aberrations, and a pachymeter to measure corneal thickness, more accurate than conventional pressure gauges for diagnosing glaucoma. Laser-etched lenses are the next big thing. With all these advances, the Schletters guarantee you'll look good, and will be able to see exactly how good you look.
