At each of its five locations, Vision Center helps clients achieve clear, focused fields of vision and an impeccable sense of personal style with eyewear from brands such as Ray-Ban, Versace, Prada, and Dior. Optometrists zero in on vision prescriptions or eye diseases with high-tech exam equipment, and friendly, knowledgeable opticians and in-house frame stylists craft looks that suit each client's one-of-a-kind eyes and face.
Wielding more than 40 years of experience and an arsenal of high-tech equipment, North Shore Eye Care helps alleviate the burden of near- and farsightedness with noninvasive laser procedures. As official eye care provider of the New York Islanders and the official LASIK provider of the New York Mets, the clinic’s board of certified surgeons can zap unwieldy glasses and irksome contacts out of necessity with this outpatient procedure by utilizing laser technology and a 1956 subway map. Patients’ corneal topography is first analyzed to determine the areas to be adjusted, and then a computerized laser is used to shuffle the corneal deck to correct vision impairments. Squinters take a mild oral sedative before the procedure but stay awake for the entire process. The procedure is completed in roughly 15 minutes, leaving patients to swiftly recover while the laser machine steps out for a celebratory round of golf.
At Argyle Optical, a highly skilled optometrist and a team of seasoned opticians help clients sharpen their field of vision with designer frames, high-def lenses, medical screenings, and contacts. Thorough exams inspect eyeballs for chronic diseases and zero in on exact prescriptions, while an extensive inventory of frames decorates faces in designs from Coach, Gucci, Tom Ford, and Versace.
Since the company's founding in 1927, Cohen's Fashion Optical has grown from a pushcart business into a successful franchise peddling prescription and designer wares at more than 100 locations spanning seven states and Puerto Rico. Each store employs experienced doctors of optometry who test pupils with comprehensive eye exams to assess ocular health, pinpoint visual acuity, and ensure that no wool has been pulled over the eyes. The store's visionary staff can also help outfit peepers with contact lenses or designer frames from brands such as Prada, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana.
The team of eye experts at Maz Optical has brought the world back into focus for more than two decades. Skilled opticians zero in on any sign of eye disease and calibrate fresh prescriptions for patients no longer able to see properly. Patients then take their new recipe for eyewear to experienced technicians, who help them order contacts or select frames from designers such as Prada, Coach, and Bebe. The professionals can answer questions about progressive lenses, give advice on protective coatings, and weigh in on which lenses are most likely to crack if worn to the opera.
Cohen’s Fashion Optical has come a long way since its founder, Jack Cohen, began selling glasses from a pushcart in 1927. From these humble beginnings, Jack’s operation grew into a New York City storefront that has since spawned more than 100 locations along the East Coast and in Puerto Rico.
At each Cohen’s Fashion Optical location, a licensed optometrist is on-hand to perform thorough exams that assess visual acuity and detect vision conditions such as astigmatism or mistaking children for raccoons. After receiving new prescriptions, customers can peruse a large selection of eyewear, including designer frames from brands such as Coach, Ray-Ban, and Marc Jacobs.
