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. 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 designer frames from brands such as Prada, Ray-Ban, and Dolce & Gabbana.
