As with anything in life, quality can vary and lenses, frames and lens coatings are no different. Brookside Optometric group is proud to offer only the highest quality lenses, coatings and frames for their patients.
Lenses vary from third quality lenses to first quality lenses. Third quality lenses have imperfections in them that can impact the visual performance of your glasses. Sadly some establishments use these lenses to offer glasses at a discounted rate. We offer only the most highly rated, first quality glass, plastic, polycarbonate, polarized and high index (up to 1.71) lenses from Carl Zeiss, Hoya, Shamir, Varilux and Transition.
Lens coatings are extremely important in protecting lenses from scratches and to improve your visual experience. However, not all coatings are created equal. Low end coatings can crack or craze thus ruining the lenses. We only offer top-rated lens coatings from Crizal, Recharge and EX3 to maximize your glasses' durability, appearance and function.
Glasses not only correct your vision to allow you to enjoy the world in absolute clarity but are also a fashion accessory. We offer over 1,500 frame choices to fit your individual style.
We feature designers including Brooks Brothers, Burberry, DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Ray Ban, Versace, Vogue, Coach, Ted Baker, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Nike, Sean John, Nautica, Autoflex, Nine West, X-Games, Carrera, Christian Dior, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Jimmy Choo, JLO, Marc Jacobs, Saks 5th Avenue, Fossil, Juicy Couture, Elle, Esprit, Silhouette, Oakley, Tommy Bahama, Joseph Abboud, Bebe, Maui Jim, and Wiley X.
Our In-House lab:
Brookside Optometric Group also provides their patients with the convenience of an in-house lab. This allows us to make new lenses for your current frames without having to be inconvenienced by having to be without your glasses. We can often make your glasses overnight or while you wait in emergency situations, if permitted by your insurance. Our lab is run by Pat Coleman who has been a bench certified optician since 1974 and a part of the Brookside Optometric Group since 2000.
Please contact the office to make an appointment for your frame selection if you would like to reserve a time.
