With more than 15 years of experience and thousands of successful vision-correction procedures under his belt, Dr. Gordon boosts visual acuity with computer-guided LASIK and PRK procedures. Dr. Gordon’s encyclopedic knowledge of ophthalmology and refractive procedures manifests itself in his numerous articles published in medical journals and during his classroom work as Associate Adjunct Professor of Ophthalmology at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary.
Dr. Gordon and his team understand that many patients feel apprehensive about undergoing vision-correction procedures. Many of the staff have undergone vision correction procedures themselves and they empathize with nervous patients. To help assuage anxieties, the staff can thoroughly explain each step in the treatment, which helps eliminate the fear of the unknown, such as wondering if there is a Jolly Rancher stuck to the back of your head.
Raymond A. Kolkmann founded Raymond Opticians in 1959, prior to the advent of advanced lens technology, and consequently perfected his ability to pair patients with their optimal prescriptions. He later passed this skill to his three sons, who, in turn, imparted the art of optometry to their own sons through careful instruction and basic osmosis. Today, Raymond Opticians' third generation of ocular outfitters benefits from not only the techniques and standards developed by Raymond Sr., but also from modern lens technology, such as Varilux lenses that help correct vision problems and Transitions, which darken when outside. After examining and diagnosing each patient's eye issues, the doctors help them select from a vast array of designer frames and sunglasses by Oakley, Prada, and Versace.
Dr. Ingeborg Dziedzic isn't just interested in helping clients see better—she wants them to look better, too. This is why, along with Dr. Shahin Eghanian, she helps clients consider the aesthetic value of their preferred treatment, whether through selecting the proper contacts or frames or through procedures such as laser vision correction. The doctors can also help with medical issues, such as glaucoma, blepharitis, and cataracts.
You shouldn't have to choose between seeing well and being fashionable. That's the core philosophy behind Cohen's Fashion Optical, which sprung from the mind of founder Jack Cohen. After originally selling designer eyewear from a pushcart in New York City in 1927, Cohen established a brick-and-mortar store where he outfitted his clients in stylish eyewear. Today, the landmark store continues to pair customers with prescription glasses and sunglasses from upscale brands including Prada, Ray-Ban, and Dolce and Gabbana. They're also equally dedicated to function, ensuring that their lenses are constructed of the finest materials and made on site as opposed to flown in by the glass stork.
For 50 years, Spring Valley Optical and its staff of ocular experts have facilitated clear vision with eye exams and prescription lenses. It carries a full line of brand name frames from designers that range from Ray-Ban and Polo Ralph Lauren to Tiffany & Co., Gucci, and Coach, as well as Zeiss lenses. Transitions and Varilux lenses fill said frames, available in thin and shatter-resistant strengths with add-ons such as Crizal antireflective coating.
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.
