For more than two decades, the lead optician at Stony Brook Vision World has shared his vast knowledge and experience with people who have been seeking out the latest frames and diagnostic technology. In addition to dispensing glasses, which are made in the onsite lab, he screens and treats patients for cataracts, glaucoma, and other ocular botherations. A testament to his passion for eye care, a glass case displays a variety of antique instruments that, like 19th-century laws mandating the use of monocles, were used to alter people's vision many years ago.
Since the company's founding in 1927, Cohen's Fashion Optical has grown from a pushcart business into a successful franchise peddling prescription and designer wares at more than 100 locations spanning seven states and Puerto Rico. Each store employs experienced doctors of optometry who test pupils with comprehensive eye exams to assess ocular health, pinpoint visual acuity, and ensure that no wool has been pulled over the eyes. The store's visionary staff can also help outfit peepers with contact lenses or designer frames from brands such as Prada, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana.
The team of eye experts at Maz Optical has brought the world back into focus for more than two decades. Skilled opticians zero in on any sign of eye disease and calibrate fresh prescriptions for patients no longer able to see properly. Patients then take their new recipe for eyewear to experienced technicians, who help them order contacts or select frames from designers such as Prada, Coach, and Bebe. The professionals can answer questions about progressive lenses, give advice on protective coatings, and weigh in on which lenses are most likely to crack if worn to the opera.
At each of its five locations, Vision Center helps clients achieve clear, focused fields of vision and an impeccable sense of personal style with eyewear from brands such as Ray-Ban, Versace, Prada, and Dior. Optometrists zero in on vision prescriptions or eye diseases with high-tech exam equipment, and friendly, knowledgeable opticians and in-house frame stylists craft looks that suit each client's one-of-a-kind eyes and face.
Optical Alternatives brings the world into focus with a selection of more than 1,200 frames from around the globe, leading Fairfield County Weekly readers to vote it the Best of Fairfield County in 2011 and 2012. The optical center?s technicians flatter faces with designs from brands including Coach, Gucci, and Miyagi, paired with lenses ground on the premises rather than by an unreliable local butcher. The center?s opticians, meanwhile, stand at the ready to update prescriptions and monitor ocular health.
For more than 40 years, Family Vision Centers has helped patients navigate the path to more precise sight. During onsite eye exams, optometrists diagnose the clarity, depth perception, and color interpretation with which each eye appraises the world. Custom fittings for eyeglasses consider personal preferences as well as the proportions of facial structures or face-wide mustaches. An onsite laboratory fashions most prescriptions within one hour and services eyeglasses with complimentary lifetime adjustments.
