In 1961, when Marvel Comics introduced the Fantastic Four, Alvernon Optical opened. Styles have changed since the '60s, but at Alvernon, you don't have to settle for the plain frames worn by Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) and Clark Kent. Choose from stylish brands such as Dior, Armani, Fendi and Guess, or go retro with Ray-Ban or tortoise-shell frames. Alvernon Optical also has specialty eyewear for sports, safety and computer use. With six local stores, you don't have to travel far. While they can't provide you with X-ray vision, the folks at Alvernon Optical can transform your vision from blurry to superhero sharpness.
