Our response to the Caronavirus Emergency
Since we supply eyeglasses and contact lenses, which are classified as medical devices, we are open on a limited basis, and may reduce hours. We will limit the number of people in store to one (or two if they come together).
We are available for eyeglass repairs and replacement, and contact lens supply replenishment. We also have Smart Exam which uses telemedicine to renew contact lens prescriptions and prescribe eyeglasses.
If you run out of contact lenses, or have eyeglasses in genuine need of repair or replacement, call the store. Leave a message if nobody answers. We'll make arrangements for you to replenish your contact lenses or repair or replace your eyeglasses.
Our contact lens and stock eyeglass lens distributors are still taking orders and shipping. Some of the custom lens laboratories we use are still open so we can get progressive lenses as well.
Contact lens prescriptions can be renewed via Smart Exam which uses telemedicine to have a remote ophthalmologist write the prescription renewal. Eyeglass prescriptions can be provided using the same system. We will not be able to do any new contact lens fittings.
We will be operating on reduced hours, and we intend to maintain social distancing, so be sure to call ahead to find a time when we can see you.
Please call ahead to arrange a time that we can accommodate you.
Thank you for your cooperation.
We provide vision tests required for driver license renewal in New York State.
The vision testing takes only a few minutes and is available on a walk in basis. The fee for the test is $15.
We need information off your current license so be sure to bring it along.
If you cannot pass the visual acuity test that NY State requires, you can schedule an appointment with the optometrist to get a prescription and eyeglasses or contact lenses so that you can drive safely.
