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.

For more than 40 years, Family Vision Centers has helped patients navigate the path to more precise sight. During onsite eye exams, optometrists diagnose the clarity, depth perception, and color interpretation with which each eye appraises the world. Custom fittings for eyeglasses consider personal preferences as well as the proportions of facial structures or face-wide mustaches. An onsite laboratory fashions most prescriptions within one hour and services eyeglasses with complimentary lifetime adjustments.

The practice specializes in helping clients manage eye-health issues such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and chronic dry eye. Dr. Hochberg is passionate about preventive eyecare, so he uses technology such as digital retinal imaging for early detection and treatment of ocular maladies.

Diamond Vision’s quartet of doctors boasts extensive experience with LASIK’s CustomVue IntraLase eye-correction procedure—so extensive that they regularly teach it to other doctors. Each doctor has completed a long process of fellowship training, licensing, and certification to refurbish eyes suffering from varying degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Though controlled low-temperature lasers and fine blades are the main components of their medical toolkits, they also implement iris registration to customize procedures and measure tissue properties with devices such as an Ocular Response Analyzer and Oculus Pentacam camera.

Diamond Vision's fabled clientele includes a menagerie of celebrities such as Tiki Barber, Mickey Rourke, and Tito Nieves, the reigning king of salsa. Decades of research, development, and practice have refined LASIK's eye-mending technology, so customers can rest assured knowing a career in dart throwing or seeing around corners is not only possible, it's definitely possible.
