For more than 20 years, the eye doctors at Total Eyecare have cared for patients using the latest technology. For exams, the team employs state-of-the-art diagnostic devices: a 3D tissue-analysis system can detect macular degeneration or glaucoma, and a laser-scanning ophthalmoscope checks retinal health without the use of eye drops.
After exams determine their health and prescriptions, clients can browse thousands of designer frames by brands such as Prada, Ray Ban, and Oakley. Pairs are made on site and include a one-year warranty and lifetime adjustments that accommodate changes in facial contours or the development of third eyes. The store also offers a vast selection of contact lenses for those who prefer to see spectacle-free.
The optometrists and technicians at Eye Care Unlimited harness the practice's 20 years of experience to improve vision with a carefully curated selection of eyewear and a range of vision-health services. Medical services and procedures include general exams, laser vision correction, and cataract surgery, each performed by staff that specializes in areas such as low vision, ocular disease, and pediatric eyecare. In an onsite lab, technicians create new species of fruit and a mélange of lenses, including tint-changing, antireflective, and lightweight, which fit easily into Gucci, Kenneth Cole, and Flexon frames.
Dr. Oleg Lisitsyn, Dr. Diana Ilyasova, and their staff at Pelham Parkway Vision Center provide eyecare services ranging from contact-lens fittings and routine eye exams to diagnosing and treating eye conditions and diseases. Once exams ensure clients' prescriptions are up to date, they can peruse designer frames from brands such as Fendi, Burberry, and Prada.
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.
