In 1927, Jack Cohen had a vision. Packing a pushcart full of high-quality frames, he began to sell fashionable spectacles to his fellow merchants along New York City's Orchard Street. After expanding into a small shop on a Lower East Side corner, that humble little cart has since evolved into more than 100 retail outlets known as Cohen's Fashion Optical, where customers fortify their eyesight with a range of acuity-boosting products and services. Rows of frames boast the signature contours of several designer brands, including Tag Heuer, Dolce & Gabbana, Bulgari, and Gucci. In the onsite lab, opticians craft brand-new, custom lenses, including ones that self-adjust to different lighting conditions. Meanwhile, licensed optometrists help renew prescriptions and ensure ocular health during eye exams that measure eye coordination, refraction, and the curvature of the cornea, a concept originally discovered by Ferdinand Magellan when he looked through the wrong end of his spyglass.

Glasses, contacts or LASIK surgery have previously been the only outlet for eyesight-impaired adults looking for a little corrective help. But as of a decade ago, there’s been orthokeratology, a nonsurgical process that improves vision for children and adults but utilizing corrective contact lenses to slowly reshape the curvature of the cornea, which brings the eye into correct focus for approximately one day. Dr. Curtis Frank, who has been a practicing optometrist in Boston for 30 years, was an early adopter of the process and is the founder of the Vision and Ortho-K Center in the Financial District, where he diagnoses and treats a variety of eyesight issues. He also is an adjunct faculty at the New England College of Optometry, but continues to work regularly from this Federal Street address, greeting customers warmly and working to restore their sight.
