Dr. Randy King and wife Debbie King provide family-operated, quality eye care at Pearle Vision at 129th (Olive) and W. Kenosha.
Are you searching for a “pearl” of an eye care facility? Pearle Vision, formerly located near Promenade Mall, has been at its new location at 129th (Olive) and W. Kenosha in Broken Arrow since June of last year and offers comprehensive eye examinations, contacts and eyeglasses. They have a laboratory on site, where they are able to do almost all of their work and get the majority of customers their order on the same day as their examination.
Pearle Vision is now offering thinner, lighter and glare-free lenses, no-line bifocals, and special lenses for computer use. There are over 1,200 frames on display to choose from, including the latest styles from Guess, Ralph Lauren, Prada, Ray-Ban, Versace, and Jones New York.
Dr. Randy King graduated from Michigan College of Optometry in 1981 and went into private practice, which he did until 1999 when he and his family moved to the Tulsa area to attend Rhema Bible Training Center. Since then, he has made Pearle Vision into quite the family business. His wife Debbie works with him, and his two daughters Angie and Jodi have worked with him in the past. “We love it here,” says Dr. King.
As a family business, Pearle Vision isn’t your run-of-the-mill optical store. They offer prompt, personal attention and will sit down with you to discuss the eye care options that best meet your individual needs. “Being family-operated allows us to bring the best of everything together: quality, service and selection,” Dr. King says.
Dr. King also has a friendly staff that is knowledgeable about insurance and benefits. They accept most insurance providers. Additionally, AARP offers many great benefits through Pearle Vision, as does AAA.
Dr. King also specializes in contact lenses, so if you have dry eyes or you haven’t been able to get a good contact lens fit, he may be able to help. He carries all types of contact lenses, including bifocals.
Over half of computer users experience eyestrain symptoms. Computer Vision Syndrome can cause tired, dry or burning eyes, headaches, blurred vision, and neck, shoulder and back pain. Pearle Vision offers special eyeglasses designed strictly for computer use. These are a fantastic option, especially for people who have difficulty with the computer screen because they wear bifocals.
The Pearle Vision company was founded in 1961 and is now the largest optical provider in the United States. This helps allow them to offer their products at lower prices. They also provide thorough, state-of-the-art eye examinations with GdX computerized laser scans. This technology enables Dr. King to detect glaucoma and treat it early. The process is quick and pain-free and doesn’t require drops or dilation. Dr. King can treat other eye diseases as well. In order to prevent more serious eye problems and promote good eye health, he recommends yearly eye exams for everyone over the age of five.
Dr. King and his friendly staff would be delighted to discuss your options with you in fulfilling your eye care needs. Pearle Vision is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information or to make an appointment, visit www.pearlevision.com.
