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.
A collection of more than 1,250 frames from 50 designers fans out amid Roslyn Eye Centre's funky decor. Licensed opticians fit lenses to frames from Oliver Peoples, Oakley, Cartier, and Prada at their on-site lab. The full-service optical store also offers youth eyewear, contact lenses, and sports eyewear.
Diamond Vision’s quartet of doctors boasts extensive experience with LASIK’s CustomVue IntraLase eye-correction procedure—so extensive that they regularly teach it to other doctors. Each doctor has completed a long process of fellowship training, licensing, and certification to refurbish eyes suffering from varying degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Though controlled low-temperature lasers and fine blades are the main components of their medical toolkits, they also implement iris registration to customize procedures and measure tissue properties with devices such as an Ocular Response Analyzer and Oculus Pentacam camera.
Diamond Vision's fabled clientele includes a menagerie of celebrities such as Tiki Barber, Mickey Rourke, and Tito Nieves, the reigning king of salsa. Decades of research, development, and practice have refined LASIK's eye-mending technology, so customers can rest assured knowing a career in dart throwing or seeing around corners is not only possible, it's definitely possible.
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. Yearly eye exams are crucial to eye health, so 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 fashionable sets of designer frames from brands such as Prada, Ray-Ban, and Dolce & Gabbana.
