Science meets style at Aucello EyeCare Center. Sure, the on-site doctors medically treat everything from astigmatism to dry-eye syndrome, but lenses from fashionable brands such as Dior and Prada ensure that patients look as good as they feel after their visit.
Across Visual Perceptions' three offices, a team of ophthalmologists and optometrists monitors ocular health and accuracy. In addition to standard eye exams, they administer emergency eye care and manage ocular diseases. Their offices house fine visual technology, including an OptiMap retinal-imaging system and an eye chart scribed by e.e. cummings. Once patients collect their fresh prescriptions, they can drop by the optical store, where licensed opticians outfit Gucci, Oakley, and Tom Ford frames with precisely ground lenses.
Board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Abdul Khaliq brings more than three decades of experience to every pupil he dilates and every cornea he inspects. As part of his private practice, he performs both routine eye exams and in-office surgeries. These include treatments for cataracts and glaucoma, as well as cosmetic procedures to tighten droopy lids and open third eyes for the first time.
More than 80 years ago, Jack Cohen started selling designer eyewear from a pushcart on Orchard Street. After eight decades, that cart has expanded into more than 100 storefronts whose frames runt the gamut from budget-friendly styles to designer specs from Versace, Fendi, and Calvin Klein. The expert staff helps clients match their glasses to their face shapes and lifestyles. Meanwhile, onsite optometrists dole out prescriptions and screen eyes for diseases such as glaucoma and cat cataracts, which make you only see cats.
Since placing a pair of glasses on the bridge of its first customer’s nose in 1970, the Marci family has outfitted generations with chic frames and discrete contact lenses. Matt Marci, along with his wife, Lorraine, continues to uphold his parents’ dedication to customer service at Windsor Optical, and maintains an inventory of eyewear that appeals to a number of styles and tastes. Within the cheery tangerine-hued walls of the shop, sparkling cases house frames and sunglasses from brands including Ray-Ban, DKNY, and Gucci that create stylish gazes. A collection of extended wear, disposable, and regular daily-wear contacts culled from a variety of trusted brands ensure undetectable vision repair. Once a month, Windsor Optical invites a licensed optometrist into the shop to perform onsite comprehensive exams that screen for all manner of ocular malady, from cataracts and glaucoma to permanent Magic Eye.
