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.
Servicing Marion and surrounding counties, the professional wall colorers at A & J Interior Painting turn dingy, dull home innards into vibrant, clean space definers. Give dining-room walls a makeover to match your dishware or favorite flavor of green apple, or renovate an office with a hue that complements your eye color. Sherwin-Williams paint can cover up rogue crayon marks, the most popular color of 1986, or wall zits in a room up to 12'x12'. A & J Interior Painting provides all supplies, alleviating brooms and pet porcupines from brush duty. A & J can also repair domicile dividers left damaged after breaking up with crown molding, and extra coats can be added for dark colors, both for an additional fee.
At Lens Lab Express, friendly doctors and staffers fit clients with glasses that suit their prescriptive needs as well as style. To correct near- or farsightedness, they discuss how different frame and lens selections impact vision. And to ensure stylishness, they stock a wide array of designer eyewear from brands such as Christian Dior and Prada. Fittings for contact lenses and comprehensive eye exams also boost the health of clients' peepers.
A second-generation eye surgeon, Dr. Julia Giyaur specializes in blade-free LASIK operations that are cutting edge in every sense but the literal one. In two locations in Brooklyn and Rego Park, Dr. Giyaur provides basic eye care such as check-ups and surgical vision correction, treatments for conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, dry eye, and astigmatism, and a few aesthetic services such as Botox and Restylane. A LASIK patient herself, Dr. Giyaur helps allay her clients’ fears or concerns on her blog, covering recently asked questions and common ocular ailments.
Fashionable frames are a focal point at Brilliant Vision—they offer frames from designer brands such as Bvlgari, Boss, and Fendi—but they take the health of their patients' eyes seriously. The professional optometrists here use advanced equipment and iridology to diagnose ocular conditions such as cataracts and glaucoma. In iridology, a specialist can identify ailments throughout the body by looking for patterns in the iris, such as the words "I'M SICK." When they identify a problem, they offer treatments ranging from vision training to herbal remedies.
Precise Optique fills the walls of its cozy boutique with frames from designers including Gucci, Dior, Armani, and Prada. As clients shop the shelves, staffers demonstrate their commitment to personal attention by helping customers find eyewear that complements their lifestyle and facial shape. Frames are then filled with basic or progressive lenses, which gradually increase in power for close-up reading and faraway whale spotting. Patients also can opt for contact lenses to achieve frame-free sight. The doctor extends the same personal courtesy as the staff during examinations, spending time to ensure patients’ eyes are free of glaucoma and cataracts before assessing visual acuity.
