Though there are 115 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. In Philadelphia in 1972, a few friends had an idea to create an optical store that combined a friendly and open environment with a fair pricing structure and quality product. Today, they take pride in their continued commitment to value and customers.
In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Burberry, Prada, Ray-Ban, and more. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses—whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites—they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.
In 1927, Jack Cohen had a vision. Packing a pushcart full of high-quality frames, he began to sell fashionable spectacles to his fellow merchants along New York City's Orchard Street. After expanding into a small shop on a Lower East Side corner, that humble little cart has since evolved into more than 100 retail outlets known as Cohen's Fashion Optical, where customers fortify their eyesight with a range of acuity-boosting products and services. Rows of frames boast the signature contours of several designer brands, including Tag Heuer, Dolce & Gabbana, Bulgari, and Gucci. In the onsite lab, opticians craft brand-new, custom lenses, including ones that self-adjust to different lighting conditions. Meanwhile, licensed optometrists help renew prescriptions and ensure ocular health during eye exams that measure eye coordination, refraction, and the curvature of the cornea, a concept originally discovered by Ferdinand Magellan when he looked through the wrong end of his spyglass.

Paul Fox's vision extends beyond the literal meaning of the word. An optician for more than 20 years and the owner of Spectacle Eyewear, Paul is also a designer who makes his own frames, as well as a retailer who handpicks frames from independent designers such as Tom Ford, Velvet Eyewear, and Intrigue. The uniting theme at Spectacle, though, is no branding allowed on any glasses. "This is a no logo zone," Paul told South End News. Logos distract or take the attention away from the wearer, so all they have to focus on at Spectacle is which of the sleek, modern frames are best for them. The showrooms feature a wide and fashionable selection of frames, and Paul himself is always on hand to help clients find a pair that seems tailor-made for their face. Keep an eye, or nose, out for Paul's hot chocolate or carrot juice, which he keeps close by to serve to his customers.
Glasses, contacts or LASIK surgery have previously been the only outlet for eyesight-impaired adults looking for a little corrective help. But as of a decade ago, there’s been orthokeratology, a nonsurgical process that improves vision for children and adults but utilizing corrective contact lenses to slowly reshape the curvature of the cornea, which brings the eye into correct focus for approximately one day. Dr. Curtis Frank, who has been a practicing optometrist in Boston for 30 years, was an early adopter of the process and is the founder of the Vision and Ortho-K Center in the Financial District, where he diagnoses and treats a variety of eyesight issues. He also is an adjunct faculty at the New England College of Optometry, but continues to work regularly from this Federal Street address, greeting customers warmly and working to restore their sight.
