Founded in 2000 by Dr. Donald Macdonald, Clearsight Laser Center imparts perfect or near-perfect vision to down and out eyeballs with painless, quick procedures. Five board-certified ophthalmologists, including Dr. Edward Hedaya, Dr. Barinder Athwal, Dr. Jason Steinfeld, and Dr. Marc VonRoemer keep the operation running and as of this very millisecond have performed thousands of successful surgeries. They attribute part of that success to Clearsight’s sophisticated WaveLight Eye-Q laser, whose eye-tracking systems zero in on eyes with literal laser precision, and 400 Hz pulse frequencies complete procedures much faster than traditional Lasik.
In 1927, Jack Cohen began selling eyeglasses from a pushcart in New York City with a novel goal: to match each wearer with a pair that fit their style as well as their prescription. Today, specialists carry on his philosophy with prescription specs from American and European labels such as Prada, Valentino, and Coach. After a visitor sits down for a fitting, a trained style professional handpicks the eyeglasses or sunglasses that best complement their face shape, eye color, and tattoo of four eyeballs. Frames come in a variety of colors and materials, and each can be customized with polarized and optical-quality lenses to ward off glare and UV rays. Meanwhile, a team of optometrists resides onsite to assess the pupils during comprehensive eye exams.
Since 1988, Specs For Less has been sharpening visual acuity in Staten Island and its surrounding areas. At each of its five locations, customers' eyes are coddled by a staff of optometrists, who examine eyes aided by up-to-date equipment as well as ongoing education. Meanwhile, eyewear consultants concern themselves with keeping newly minted prescriptions stylishly adhered to faces, occupying the vanguard of frame style trends with an inventory of designs from Coach, Fendi, and Dior.
Optometrists and technicians at the family-oriented practice I'll Be Seeing You Optical have been treating eyes and supplying vision solutions for two decades. The optometrists perform exams and diagnostic tests before clients grab designer glasses, sunglasses, and monocles from brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, Versace, Fendi, and Coach or opt for contacts.
The optical staff at My Optician NYC enhances vision and decorates faces with prescription lenses fitted into chic designer frames. Branded frames from JLo ($229), Gucci ($350+), Prada ($350+), and other boutique bifocal houses instantly upgrade clients who fashioned their own sets from a box of paperclips. Single-vision plastic lenses ($69) refocus blurry printed words and improve farsightedness; polycarbonate and high-index lenses keep eyes from mistaking a boss's face for a Magic Eye poster. Although an eye exam is not included in the value of this Groupon, My Optician NYC's state-licensed optometrists and ophthalmologists can examine peepers and prescribe lenses for an additional fee.
The optician behind Luv My Vision helms a team of trained technicians inside a sleek modern showroom. Amid white walls and fire-engine-red accents, frames by brands such as Ray-Ban, Tom Ford, and Zeiss nestle in little nooks and inside glass cases. Skilled staffers help pair these frames with the right faces. They also make sure glasses are matched with a set of high-index lenses, which were created by chemists to be lighter and thinner than glass lenses.
