From Our Editors
Jack Cohen started selling stylish frames in 1927 from a pushcart in New York. His plan was to dispense face-flattering glasses in an age when eyewear was purely utilitarian. Over time, his pushcart became a shop on Orchard Street, and that one little shop burgeoned to more than 100 stores across seven states and Puerto Rico.
In these optical shops, experts perform eye exam, fill prescriptions, and glaze lenses with antireflective, scratch-guard, and ultraviolet coatings. Then they place the lenses into frames by brands such as Calvin Klein, Dior, and Ralph Lauren. These frames come in an array of materials, from titanium and stainless steel to plastic and gelatin.
