We carry a large selection of Designer Eyewear!
Everyone has different needs when choosing eyeglass frames. Proper fit and a style that suits you are probably the two main objectives. Your face size and shape, hair and eye color, and other factors affect your decision. To make the best selection, you need a good understanding of what constitutes "proper fit". This will affect how your glasses look, whether or not they are comfortable, and how well you see with them. Our optical professionals are specially trained to assist you with your frame selection.
We carry designer frames including:
Coach, Ray Ban, Vera Wang, Eddie Bauer and Geoffrey Beene
Several years ago, Consumer Reports did a study of patient satisfaction with their eyeglass makers. They found that by far the highest rate of patient satisfaction occurred when patients utilized optical dispensaries located within their ophthalmologists office. For this reason, and because we feel that our carefully determined prescriptions need the best optical services, we have put a tremendous effort into making our dispensary the best place for our patients to obtain their eyeglasses.
