Charlotte's Optical Best Of

Best Place for Eyewear

"Gourmet eyewear." That's a fitting descriptor for Charlotte's Optical's collection of fashion-forward, sophisticated and state-of-the-art eyeglasses. Celebrating its fourth win in the past five years, the store has been a favorite of bespectacled patrons since it opened here in 1989. Showrooms overflow with frames from designers like Oliver Peoples, Daniel Swarovski, Anne et Valentin and others, and the store's licensed optometrists are ready to assist, as is a high-tech tool called the iPoint Kiosk. The gadget takes photos of you wearing the frame styles you like best, then you put your own glasses back on and compare the photos on a computer screen — no more squinting at yourself in a mirror through dummy lenses. Charlotte's has so many delicious looks, it gives new meaning to the term "eye candy." — Jill Thomas
