You shouldn't have to choose between seeing well and being fashionable. That's the core philosophy behind Cohen's Fashion Optical, which sprung from the mind of founder Jack Cohen. After originally selling designer eyewear from a pushcart in New York City in 1927, Cohen established a brick-and-mortar store where he outfitted his clients in stylish eyewear. Today, the landmark store continues to pair customers with prescription glasses and sunglasses from upscale brands including Prada, Ray-Ban, and Dolce and Gabbana. They're also equally dedicated to function, ensuring that their lenses are constructed of the finest materials and made on site as opposed to flown in by the glass stork.
For 50 years, Spring Valley Optical and its staff of ocular experts have facilitated clear vision with eye exams and prescription lenses. It carries a full line of brand name frames from designers that range from Ray-Ban and Polo Ralph Lauren to Tiffany & Co., Gucci, and Coach, as well as Zeiss lenses. Transitions and Varilux lenses fill said frames, available in thin and shatter-resistant strengths with add-ons such as Crizal antireflective coating.
If there's one thing the optical team at Cohen's Fashion Optical have learned in their 22 years of business, it's that people don't want to wait to see better. That's why they keep their lens laboratory on-site. After Dr. Thomas O'Kane finishes assessing visual acuity, the lab techs craft prescription lenses and fit them into one of their boutique's more than 1,400 styles of frames.
