Founded in 1914, the original New York City location of Sterling Optical doled out frames amid the Model Ts and paperboys that swarmed the city's financial district. The original band of eyesight experts weathered years of economic depression by impressing customers with speedy, full-service vision care, later launching a second store near Washington, DC. Today, a century of steady franchise expansion has given rise to 125 locations across the US. Most stores continue the tradition of offering one-stop optical services, giving customers access to onsite labs that can manufacture glasses in just one hour. Thanks to that commitment to customer care, Sterling Optical has been named one of the nation's leading franchises by Entrepreneur magazine.
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.
With an array of top-of-the-line gadgets and the latest electronic innovations, Central Sight and Sound turns homes into movie theaters and transforms cars into nightclubs on wheels. With custom installations, cars are souped-up with mobile video, remote-control starters, alarms, speakers, amplifiers and subwoofers, and even window tinting, ensuring sweeter rides with tight security. Home theater systems allow movie-goers to skip the multiplex hassles with massive screens and sound systems that make the old THX trailers seem reticent in comparison.
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.
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.
From basic frames to designer ones, from contact lenses to prescription sunwear, Eye Supply has eyecare needs covered. To ensure prescriptions are as accurate as possible, doctors also provide eye exams and polygraph tests for existing prescriptions.
