Founded in 2000 by Dr. Donald Macdonald, Clearsight Laser Center imparts perfect or near-perfect vision to down and out eyeballs with painless, quick procedures. Five board-certified ophthalmologists, including Dr. Edward Hedaya, Dr. Barinder Athwal, Dr. Jason Steinfeld, and Dr. Marc VonRoemer keep the operation running and as of this very millisecond have performed thousands of successful surgeries. They attribute part of that success to Clearsight’s sophisticated WaveLight Eye-Q laser, whose eye-tracking systems zero in on eyes with literal laser precision, and 400 Hz pulse frequencies complete procedures much faster than traditional Lasik.

If there's one thing the optical team at Cohen's Fashion Optical have learned in their 22 years of business, it's that people don't want to wait to see better. That's why they keep their lens laboratory on-site. After Dr. Thomas O'Kane finishes assessing visual acuity, the lab techs craft prescription lenses and fit them into one of their boutique's more than 1,400 styles of frames.
During yearly eye exams, Dr. Shefali Miglani not only tests visual acuity, eye pressure, and ocular health, but she also checks for computer-vision syndrome to see just how stressed eyes are and how it’s affecting overall health. Her detailed approach helps her determine which vision-correction device will best help patients, from specialized contacts to sunglasses and glasses by brands such as Juicy Couture, Izod, and Armani. If a patient can’t find what they’re looking for, Dr. Miglani will special-order virtually any model of frame from any manufacturer. Monroe Eye Care also doles out complimentary adjustments, small repairs, and miniature wiper blades to keep glasses in top shape.
Since 1988, Specs For Less has been sharpening visual acuity in Staten Island and its surrounding areas.

Meanwhile, eyewear consultants concern themselves with keeping newly minted prescriptions stylishly adhered to faces, occupying the vanguard of frame style trends with an inventory of designs from Coach, Fendi, and Dior.
