At Lens Lab Express, friendly doctors and staffers fit clients with glasses that suit their prescriptive needs as well as style. To correct near- or farsightedness, they discuss how different frame and lens selections impact vision. And to ensure stylishness, they stock a wide array of designer eyewear from brands such as Christian Dior and Prada. Fittings for contact lenses and comprehensive eye exams also boost the health of clients' peepers.
The optical team at Eyeglass Factory on Broadway adheres to the protocols of founder Sandy Wong, who eschewed the sale of egregious add-ons and gimmicky frames for simple, stylish eyewear. They manifest this vision with a collection of chic and traditional frames and sunglasses from such designers as Hugo Boss, Coach, Gucci, and Vera Wang, which house scratch-resistant and progressive lenses. The team also augments eyesight with single vision, bifocal, and multi-focal contact lenses.
A distinctive bespectacled sig signifies the turn-of-the-century brownstone that houses the practice of Dr. Stuart Friedman, a proud graduate of the New England College of Optometry who improves the ocular health of his community from a neighborhood optometry office that blends old-school charm and modern-day technology. Inside, a stunning array of frames from labels such as Hugo Boss, Lacoste, Tom Ford, and Gucci await new faces from their perches within a hardwood-accented dispensary. Exams showcase Dr. Friedman’s commitment to up-and-coming technologies, with an onsite lab that carves out precision optics and a retinal camera that snaps accurate records and prepares patients for next season’s eye-activated microwaves.
Located on the Upper East Side, this family of third generation opticians have helped customers from Russia to New York since 1964. As profiled in Time Out New York, Elijah Peters now carries on the family tradition by importing specs from around the world. Inside his 538-square-foot boutique, an eclectic selection of designer frames from Gucci, Tom Ford, Alain Mikli, and Tory Burch line shelves illuminated by LED lights. Eli and his staff fill these empty frames with coated lenses that defend eyes against UV-rays, scratches, and inaccurate fortune-cookie predictions.
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.
