Since 1988, Specs For Less has been sharpening visual acuity in Staten Island and its surrounding areas. At each of its five locations, customers' eyes are coddled by a staff of optometrists, who examine eyes aided by up-to-date equipment as well as ongoing education. Meanwhile, eyewear consultants concern themselves with keeping newly minted prescriptions stylishly adhered to faces, occupying the vanguard of frame style trends with an inventory of designs from Coach, Fendi, and Dior.
Dr. Robin Greenfield clarifies cloudy vision with comprehensive vision exams, treatments, and a collection of alluring eyewear. With a focus on preventative eyecare for families, private appointments pinpoint vision problems using up-to-date technologies and dole out fresh prescriptions that customers can exchange for contact lenses and glasses. Designer frames encircle single, bifocal, and other specialty lenses in simple styles and interesting designs.
Founded in 2000 by Dr. Donald Macdonald, ClearSight Vision Center, LLC imparts perfect or near-perfect vision to down and out eyeballs with painless, quick procedures. Five board-certified ophthalmologists, including Dr. Edward Hedaya, Dr. Barinder Athwal, Dr. Jason Steinfeld, and Dr. Marc VonRoemer keep the operation running and as of this very millisecond have performed thousands of successful surgeries. They attribute part of that success to Clearsight?s sophisticated WaveLight Eye-Q laser, whose eye-tracking systems zero in on eyes with literal laser precision, and 400 Hz pulse frequencies complete procedures much faster than traditional Lasik.
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.
Since the company's founding in 1927, Cohen's Fashion Optical has grown from a pushcart business into a successful franchise peddling prescription and designer wares at more than 100 locations spanning seven states and Puerto Rico. Each store employs experienced doctors of optometry who test pupils with comprehensive eye exams to assess ocular health, pinpoint visual acuity, and ensure that no wool has been pulled over the eyes. The store's visionary staff can also help outfit peepers with contact lenses or designer frames from brands such as Prada, Ray-Ban, and Dolce & Gabbana.
In 1927, Jack Cohen began selling eyeglasses from a pushcart in New York City with a novel goal: to match each wearer with a pair that fit their style as well as their prescription. Today, specialists carry on his philosophy with prescription specs from American and European labels such as Prada, Valentino, and Coach. After a visitor sits down for a fitting, a trained style professional handpicks the eyeglasses or sunglasses that best complement their face shape, eye color, and tattoo of four eyeballs. Frames come in a variety of colors and materials, and each can be customized with polarized and optical-quality lenses to ward off glare and UV rays. Meanwhile, a team of optometrists resides onsite to assess the pupils during comprehensive eye exams.
