Central-Eyes Optical houses thousands of frames primed for prescription from the center's two distinguished doctors. Dr. Saimovici specializes in sharpening vision with LASIK surgery. His counterpart, Dr. Kallman, draws on more than 25 years of experience to alleviate a variety of general vision issues, including problems with contact lenses or low-hanging branches.
The staff pairs patrons with new sets of eyes, including frames from designers such as Versace, Fendi, and Gucci. They also assist guests as they compare contact lenses from Bausch & Lomb and CooperVision, or outfit younger family members with one of more than 500 frames designed specifically for children.
The world looks a lot clearer once you leave Hudson River Eye Care. Inside the clinic, an optometrist checks for problems and writes a prescription for lenses. Then, you can browse the collection of frames and choose a pair to keep those lenses from running away to join an observatory.
Raymond A. Kolkmann founded Raymond Opticians in 1959, prior to the advent of advanced lens technology, and consequently perfected his ability to pair patients with their optimal prescriptions. He later passed this skill to his three sons, who, in turn, imparted the art of optometry to their own sons through careful instruction and basic osmosis. Today, Raymond Opticians' third generation of ocular outfitters benefits from not only the techniques and standards developed by Raymond Sr., but also from modern lens technology, such as Varilux lenses that help correct vision problems and Transitions, which darken when outside. After examining and diagnosing each patient's eye issues, the doctors help them select from a vast array of designer frames and sunglasses by Oakley, Prada, and Versace.
Founded in 1914, the original New York City location of Sterling Optical doled out frames amid the Ford 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 almost 200 store locations in 23 states. Most locations continue the tradition of offering one-stop optical services, giving customers access to exams and onsite labs that manufacture glasses in one hour. The spectacle provider has been named one of the nation's leading franchises by Entrepreneur magazine.
For almost 30 years we have provided New York City and Long Island residents with the highest quality eyeglasses at the lowest everyday published prices. All of our packages include a frame from selections that range from 800-2,000 frames. These are the same frames and lens products from the same manufacturers that you have
Back in the 1860s, a Swedish professor and eye expert named Herman Snellen devised a ratio to determine and express visual acuity—all using a simple eye chart. Today, the Snellen Chart, dotted with random letters of various sizes, hangs in optometry offices across the world, allowing docs to determine how well a patient sees compared to the “standard”—one who can see two chart objects from 20 feet away, or as we would know it, someone with 20/20 vision.
Like Herman and the doctors after him, Bronx Eye Care uses the Snellen Chart—along with a few more modern devices—to help prescribe the appropriate lens strength for patients of all ages. Once deemed far-sighted, near-sighted, or too cool to not own sunglasses, customers can peruse the clinic’s collection of frames by Gucci, Fender, and Prada.
