With a licensed doctor of optometry and an optician at each of its two locations, EyeStyles of New Jersey helps turn customers' blurry vision crystal clear. Doctors Lowell S. Davis and Barry E. Davis perform thorough eye examinations before a licensed optician fits customers with their ideal lenses. Fashionable frames from dozens of designers, such as Oakley, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, and Dior, help faces achieve a new look without having to draw on a second set of eyebrows. An onsite lab makes for speedy service and ensures that many patients leave the same day with new glasses.
The experienced ophthalmologists at Manhattan Lasik Center have successfully sharpened the vision of more than 50,000 pairs of peepers using some of the latest technology in the field. They only perform LASIK and laser vision-correction surgeries at this facility, so patients can count on specialized expertise in the doctors' care and their prowess at laser tag. Free consultations help to determine which option from their menu of treatments is best for individual specs wearers.
Voted the Best Place to Buy Eyewear in 2011 by New Haven Advocate readers, Kennedy & Perkins Guild Opticians focuses gazes and outfits eyes in contemporary designer frames. Owners Richard Kennedy Jr. and J. Dart Messick keep up with the latest face-mounted fashions and airport vending machines by attending eyewear shows from Los Angeles to Milan. Drawing from nearly 1,000 designer frames ($99+), staff frame stylists can suggest styles ideally suited to customers' facial features.
Since 1988, Specs For Less has been sharpening visual acuity in Staten Island and its surrounding areas. At each of its five locations, customers' eyes are coddled by a staff of optometrists, who examine eyes aided by up-to-date equipment as well as ongoing education. 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.
For more than 90 years, Sterling Optical’s physicians and eyeglass specialists have paired peepers with stylish brand-name frames. Men, women, children, and seeing-impaired mannequins can browse frames by Coach, Michael Kors, Tom Ford, and Kenneth Cole (designer frames are $229+), among others such as Peachtree Eyewear ($119). Eyewear technicians forge lenses in about one hour before bestowing customers with two pairs of custom frames—one for daily wear and one for incognito trips to the grocery store. If within 30 days of their purchase patrons tire of frames with x-ray vision, Sterling Optical will gladly replace said specs with another pair of equal or lesser value.
In 1927, Jack Cohen began selling eyeglasses from a pushcart in New York City with a novel goal: to match each wearer with a pair that fit their style as well as their prescription. Today, specialists carry on his philosophy with prescription specs from American and European labels such as Prada, Valentino, and Coach. After a visitor sits down for a fitting, a trained style professional handpicks the eyeglasses or sunglasses that best complement their face shape, eye color, and tattoo of four eyeballs. Frames come in a variety of colors and materials, and each can be customized with polarized and optical-quality lenses to ward off glare and UV rays. Meanwhile, a team of optometrists resides onsite to assess the pupils during comprehensive eye exams.
