For more than 50 years, the trio of optical specialists at Council Opticians have specialized in enhancing their clients' sight. Dr. Robert Gouinlock prescribes glasses and contact lens while also providing exams to detect potential health issues. Optician Donna Kabel specializes in matchmaking patients with flattering styles, helping tour the store's library of designer frames from brands such as Coach, Ray Ban, and Michael Kors. Greg Kardach rounds out the group with decades of experience as an optician, a skill he now uses to repair glasses. For quick convenience after appointments, the trio works in an onsite lab that allows them to produce or fix eyewear within an hour, a much faster method than tying magnifying glasses and chicken wire together.
Licensed opticians and board-certified optometrists helm Buffalo's Best Opticians' three eye emporiums. At each location, they can assess ocular health during comprehensive exams or fill prescriptions from other doctors. Once patrons' vision is determined, friendly staff members help them select eyewear from a collection of more than 1,000 unique frames. Styles from designers including Vera Wang, DKNY, and Vogue are filled with single-vision or bifocal lenses to fashionably and functionally surround eyes. For those seeking sharper sight without glasses or attaching periscopes to their heads, Buffalo's Best also offers contact lenses.
Recognized as a center of excellence by major pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, Robbins Eye has built its reputation on a team of experienced doctors and the latest laser, surgical, and diagnostic technology. Dr. Allan Robbins was one of the first surgeons in the country to use intraocular lenses for cataract surgery, and helped bring surgical advancements such as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and bladeless LASIK to upstate New York.
In addition to completing laser procedures, Dr. Robbins and his colleagues receive ongoing training in innovations such as surgical Crystalens implants, which operate like a hinge and are therefore highly flexible. Performing treatments at their dedicated surgery centers allows them to control key factors such as equipment updates and temperature and humidity levels, which can be critical for optimal outcomes and proper Chia pet growth.
