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.
Fifty years ago, Pearle Vision was a tiny eyecare practice in Savannah, Georgia, run by Dr. Stanley Pearle. Since then, it's expanded to myriad practices across the country?including this one in Toms River. Helmed by Drs. Randy Nissinoff and Michael Iuliano, the practice outfits eyes with face-flattering designer frames and sunglasses, all with prescription lenses. Each pair comes with 30 days of no-questions returns and a lifetime of free fit adjustments. For extra convenience, the practice also stays open until 8 p.m. on weekdays, so visitors can pop in after work.
At Crown Eyecare Center, doctors remain available six days per week to deliver comprehensive eye exams, contact lens fittings, and medical eye care services. For eyeglasses and sunglasses, Crown carries a diverse selection of frames, from basic fashion collections to designer brands such as Prada, Versace, and Oakley. The center’s location in the Midstate Mall Shopping Center also enables customers to shop, or eat, while prescriptions are completed in Crown’s one-hour lab.
Founded in 2000 by Dr. Donald Macdonald, ClearSight Vision Center, LLC 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.
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.
