Eyeglass House's team of New York–licensed sight shamans soothes squinting eyes with a variety of designer frames and lenses crafted on-site with advanced edging technology. Customers can adorn their eyes with single-vision lenses (starting at $95), progressive lenses (starting at $265), or designer frames from lines such as Coach, Betsey Johnson, and Gucci ($225 on average). More sensitive peepers can opt for Polaroid sunglass lenses (starting at $190). Eyeglass House also specializes in children's eyewear, boasting contact lenses for young adults and more than 300 children's frame styles that can be equipped with impact-resistant lenses perfect for sessions of full-contact spitball.
With more than 20 years of individual experience, optometrists Dr. Joel Kestenbaum and Dr. Michelle Zalaznick lead Optix Family Eyecare Center’s small, dedicated army of eyeball preservationists, providing residents with fashionable ocular correctives and designer-designed retina sunshields. Optix is the largest designer-sunglasses oasis in the area, so brands such as Ray Bans ($139–$279), Nike ($139–$199), and Coach ($159–$289) are available for the discerning UV fighter. If you choose to go the prescription route, polycarbonate lenses are available standard ($129) and with a non-glare package ($199). Today’s deal includes a $50 eye-exam credit; complete health eye exams start at $95, so expect about half off the test that can determine your eyesight and whether Ray Bans will make you look more like Jake, Elroy, or their brother Joshua, who only wore them because of his extreme sensitivity to neon lights.
Hicksville Optical's fashionable frames hail from brands such as Guess, DKNY, and Ray-Ban. And chic glasses are only the beginning of the team's offerings. They also outfit clients with sunglasses and contacts, tailoring all their wares to prescriptions measured by onsite optometrists.
At Vision World of Levittown, Dr. Rory Bowman knows that everyone's eyes are different?even those with the same prescription. That's why his exams are such an important step. During exams, he assesses not only eyes but also the patient's lifestyle, which may involve staring at a computer screen or sleeping with one eye open. From there, he crafts customized nonglare, polarized, or digital lenses to improve vision and protect the eyes.
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.
Dr. Melania Napolitano grew up in Italy and speaks fluent Italian and Spanish. She earned her doctorate of optometry from SUNY College of Optometry and now uses her linguistic skills to communicate with clients about their vision. When she isn't crafting eyeglass and contact-lens prescriptions, she diagnoses maladies such as glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. The shelves at 20/20 Eye Care brim with frames by designers such as Michael Kors, Juicy Couture, DKNY, and Nike, preparing patrons to read fine print or make fun of the lamest ants in a colony.
