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.
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.
With an array of top-of-the-line gadgets and the latest electronic innovations, Central Sight and Sound turns homes into movie theaters and transforms cars into nightclubs on wheels. With custom installations, cars are souped-up with mobile video, remote-control starters, alarms, speakers, amplifiers and subwoofers, and even window tinting, ensuring sweeter rides with tight security. Home theater systems allow movie-goers to skip the multiplex hassles with massive screens and sound systems that make the old THX trailers seem reticent in comparison.
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.
