The world looks a lot clearer once you leave Hudson River Eye Care. Inside the clinic, an optometrist checks for problems and writes a prescription for lenses. Then, you can browse the collection of frames and choose a pair to keep those lenses from running away to join an observatory.
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.
With more than 15 years of experience and thousands of successful vision-correction procedures under his belt, Dr. Gordon boosts visual acuity with computer-guided LASIK and PRK procedures. Dr. Gordon’s encyclopedic knowledge of ophthalmology and refractive procedures manifests itself in his numerous articles published in medical journals and during his classroom work as Associate Adjunct Professor of Ophthalmology at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary.
Dr. Gordon and his team understand that many patients feel apprehensive about undergoing vision-correction procedures. Many of the staff have undergone vision correction procedures themselves and they empathize with nervous patients. To help assuage anxieties, the staff can thoroughly explain each step in the treatment, which helps eliminate the fear of the unknown, such as wondering if there is a Jolly Rancher stuck to the back of your head.
Raymond A. Kolkmann founded Raymond Opticians in 1959, prior to the advent of advanced lens technology, and consequently perfected his ability to pair patients with their optimal prescriptions. He later passed this skill to his three sons, who, in turn, imparted the art of optometry to their own sons through careful instruction and basic osmosis. Today, Raymond Opticians' third generation of ocular outfitters benefits from not only the techniques and standards developed by Raymond Sr., but also from modern lens technology, such as Varilux lenses that help correct vision problems and Transitions, which darken when outside. After examining and diagnosing each patient's eye issues, the doctors help them select from a vast array of designer frames and sunglasses by Oakley, Prada, and Versace.
Central-Eyes Optical houses thousands of frames primed for prescription from the center's two distinguished doctors. Dr. Saimovici specializes in sharpening vision with LASIK surgery. His counterpart, Dr. Kallman, draws on more than 25 years of experience to alleviate a variety of general vision issues, including problems with contact lenses or low-hanging branches.
The staff pairs patrons with new sets of eyes, including frames from designers such as Versace, Fendi, and Gucci. They also assist guests as they compare contact lenses from Bausch & Lomb and CooperVision, or outfit younger family members with one of more than 500 frames designed specifically for children.
