Kalmus Optical

Leon Kalmus opened up shop in 1949 to outfit near- and farsighted customers with hand-fitted specs, which optometrist Myron Singer has been helping patients choose since 1963. The boutique corrects vision with contact lenses, prescription mascot costume heads, and designer frames by Ray-Ban, Prada, and Tom Ford.

Soooooo lovely Wonderfully kind people and hands down the most thorough eye exam I've received in my 21 years of wearing glasses! Great selection of frames as well - if you go for a cheaper pair of frames, the groupon pretty much covers you

No tips. He is an awesomely thorough and competent optomotrist with an old school feel. The woman helping to choose frames is so skilled and patient. Love Kalmus. Highly recommended!!!
