  • SEE Eyewear
    Though SEE Eyewear?s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a-kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop?s exclusive coveted selection. From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn?t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.

  • Cohen's Optical - 841 Broadway
    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.

  • Cohen's Optical - 841 Broadway
    With the countless designers who have made forays into eyewear design, it's easy to forget that glasses were once seen as purely functional. But Jack Cohen was one of the first to see them as a fashion accessory?in 1927 he started selling more stylized designs from a pushcart in Manhattan. His foresight paid off, as Cohen's Fashion Optical now operates in more than 100 retail outlets throughout the country. Since then, Cohen's offerings have expanded, of course, to include eye exams, contacts, sunglasses, and clip-on sunglasses for those without pierced ears.
