Why make an appointment for eyewear?

Why make an appointment for eyewear?

Whether you are purchasing from one of our luxury collections, our designer collections or our mid-priced collections, we appreciate that you are making an investment in your own eyewear collection.  We want to give you all the requisite attention that you deserve when making such an important decision about your eyewear. As such, we like to have a dedicated optician appointed to you and ensure that your time is respected. 

If you have been here before, while making your appointment you may choose the optician you’d prefer to assist you. If that optician is not here that day or free at the time, we will reach out to you with other options of times or opticians to ensure a smooth and happy experience.

Whether you are traveling from another borough, state or country, or from right down the block, by setting an appointment in advance, you are assured to the undivided attention and time needed for your eyewear selection.

Why are your glasses so expensive?

Why are your glasses so expensive?

There are multiple costs that go into every pair of eyewear, before they ever comes through our front door. The three main costs associated with the creation of a new pair are materials, design and labor.  Unlike many companies which outsource their manufacturing to massive automated facilities in China, the majority of our collections are designed, manufactured and assembled by eyewear artisans in countries all over the world. 

  1. On every collection page, we list what materials that designer is known for using. Naturally if a pair is made from a sustainable wood, leather, stone, granite or ethically sourced buffalo horn, the cost will be higher.
  2. Our curated collections are driven by artisanal designs, which are neither mass created nor mass produced.
  3. A number of our collections are largely handmade or assembled. The attention to the detail and perfection results in higher labor and material costs.

We pride ourselves in developing relationships with talented designers who take risks, with unique shapes, colors or material combinations. The resulting eyewear is as unique as you.

Can my glasses work with adjustable nose pads?

Can my glasses work with adjustable nose pads?

Our general rule of thumb is that we can put the adjustable nose pads any pair of plastic frames, as well as many glasses made from horn.

Quite often we will modify your frame to 1st smooth down the bridge area before installing the new adjustable nose pads.

If you have a question about a specific frame, click here to email a picture of the frame to the lab.

I wear contacts now but I am having some problems with them. What can I do?

I wear contacts now but I am having some problems with them. What can I do?

If you are not totally happy with the comfort, fit or vision of your lenses, visit Dr. Rozenberg for a complimentary consultation. He can discuss some of the possible choices and remedies available to solve problems you are experiencing. It may be as simple as changing the prescription of your lenses or letting you try a different lens for a week.

Personalized troubleshooting is one of the advantages of working with a doctor you trust. You can buy contacts anywhere in NYC or even online for that matter, but some issues are best resolved through visiting a professional.

I am having trouble reading with my lenses, what can I do?

I am having trouble reading with my lenses, what can I do?

It may just require a slight change in prescription to help you read better with your lenses. Sometimes the use of reading or computer glasses over contacts will solve the problem. Some patients do very well with bifocal or multi-focal contacts. Occasionally, patients prefer monovision where one eye is corrected for far and one for near vision. We can often give you trial periods to try many of these options to see which is right for you.

How much do contact lenses cost?

How much do contact lenses cost?

The cost of contact lenses will depend on the nature of your eyes, prescription, and eye care needs. Some patients just need new lenses, some are due for an exam and a different lens, while others have more complicated corneas and will need custom designed lenses. Dr. Rozenberg can usually estimate the cost during a consultation.

Multi-Focal Lenses

Multi-Focal Lenses

As you get older, usually after 40, your vision may change. Presbyopia is a natural, common condition that affects your ability to see or read close things. Ever find yourself holding a menu at arm’s length or squinting to read a newspaper? Multi-focal lenses are designed to produce crisp, clear vision at any range, near and far.

Rigid Lenses

Rigid Lenses

Rigid, or hard, contact lenses have come a long way since the 1990s when they first became popularized. Dr. Rozenberg believes rigid lenses may be the healthiest choice for your eyes as they allow your tears to naturally eliminate waste products and other impurities, instead of trapping them under a soft lens. Rigid lenses may be a great choice for your child, especially those with astigmatism.

Custom Rigid Lenses

Custom Rigid Lenses

Just as not two fingerprints are alike, your eyes have individual shapes and textures. Dr. Rozenberg has more than 40 years experience mapping the corneal topography to designing tear layers that work in tandem with custom rigid lenses for excellent vision and maximum comfort. Custom rigid lenses can be created, made to order, for near and distant vision, astigmatism, bi-focal, multi-focal and post-surgical corrections.

Soft Lenses

Soft Lenses

Dr. Rozenberg believes that 1-day disposable lenses are the best option in soft lenses. Soft lenses differ in shape, size, material and water/air permeability. After a day of wear, soft lenses become coated with fats, proteins, and other debris.

One-day disposables allow you to start each day with a fresh, sterile pair of lenses, helping to maintain healthy corneas and eyelids. Making the right choice will be healthier for your eyes.

Soft Lenses with Beauty Benefits

Soft Lenses with Beauty Benefits

One of the newest innovations in eyecare are lenses that accentuate the natural beauty and brightness of your eyes. DEFINE™ 1-Day lenses by Acuvue use light-effect patterns to reinforce the appearance of the circle around your iris – the limbal ring. Studies show a dark limbal ring is associated with attractiveness. The limbal ring starts out very dark when you are born; as you age it diminishes in appearance.

DEFINE lenses add depth and dimension to the limbal ring without changing your natural eye color, and enhance the whiteness of your eye. They’re available in prescription and non-prescription, in three different style patterns – and also provide UV protection for your eyes.
