Latest Technology in Lenses
Eyeglass lenses look simple, but can be quite complex. You can trust our Opticians for guidance on the latest and best technology in thin lightweight lenses, multifocal designs and lens coatings.
Progressive lenses: For years, we've sought an answer to the challenge of providing effective vision correction at varying distances. Bifocals and trifocals are a great first step, but those "lines" can be distracting. A more comfortable and attractive solution is here today! We now offer progressive lenses that provide a smooth transition to improve your range of vision for near, far and everything in between, and they eliminate those lines! Our Opticians are highly skilled in making glasses to your exact specifications using the best choice of materials for your particular needs and budget.
A recent clinical study showed 97% of bifocal wearers successfully converted to line-free lenses! With out the unsightly lines to get in the way of your vision.
High-index lenses : Ultra thin lens, even for those very strong prescriptions.
Polycarbonate lenses:Shatter resistant lenses are a great choice for active lifestyles and the only lenses prescribed for children.
Polarized lenses: Ordinary tinted sun lenses merely darken what you see and mask the real problems of glare. Polarized lenses are designed to conquer glare. Water, snow and even pavement create glare that not only blurs vision but also causes squinting, eye fatigue and even impaired acuity.
Transition lenses: This tremendous technology allows your glasses to adapt naturally to changes in your environment and change from light to dark as you move between indoors and outdoors. When UV rays are present, they darken, so you're protected, and they lighten when indoors. Their lightweight design also includes scratch resistant coating.
Anti-reflective (AR) : To drive safely at night you need all the light possible. AR Coatings increase the amount of light transmitted through eyeglasses.
Reflections off the front of your eyeglasses can make it difficult for people to see your eyes. Anti-reflective (AR) coatings make eyeglass lenses virtually invisible so the focus is on you and not the distracting reflections from your surrounding environment.
UV Protection coating : Protects your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. We recommend that all eye wear have a UV factor of 95% or more.
Scratch coating : Protects your lenses and reduces scratches.
Tint coating : Fashion Tint adds to your appearance while adding comfort and protection.
We carry quality frames with warranty. You can customize your sunglasses with a variety of our colored lenses according to your personal style and taste.
Take your choice of sunglass style with or without prescription to fit you perfectly.
Contact lenses cause many people discomfort in bright light. They can cause light to focus more brightly on your retina.
All contact lens wearers should have sunglasses.
"Wearing appropriate sunglasses can help prevent the progression of Cataracts and Macular Degeneration." Dr. Mark D. Fromer, Medical Director
Prescription eyewear, simple as it looks, is actually quite complex. There are three components to a pair of glasses-the visual problem (what the lens is designed to correct), the material used (what the lens is made of), and the lens treatments (what protects the lens and optimizes its performance.)
All of these factors can affect one another. Only a highly qualified eye care team can help you choose exactly the right combination for your eyes and your lifestyle.

We look forward to seeing you, and providing the fashionable and functional solution for better vision and lasting comfort!
Medicare Glasses After Cataract Surgery
Fromer Eye Center’s Optical located at 109-33 71st Road, Forest Hills NY 11375
Our Optical Shop can help you pick out your glasses after your cataract surgery.
Medicare guidelines cover 80 percent of the cost toward a basic pair of lenses and a frame.
The rest may be covered by your secondary insurance.
Here’s how it works:
- About 4 weeks after you cataract surgery, your doctor will give you a prescription for your new lenses.
- Take your prescription to our Optical Shop, which carries a selection of frames covered by Medicare.
- Our Optical Shop can help fit you into the lenses and frames of your choice.
You can also upgrade beyond basic frames paid for by Medicare and pay the difference out of-pocket for items such as:
- A deluxe frame
- Progressive lenses
- Anti-reflective treatments
- Transitions treatments
- Specialty lenses
Before you choose your new glasses, make sure to let our optician in our optical shop know that the bill is to be sent to Medicare. Ask which frames they have that are fully covered by.
Medicare (not counting your 20 percent coinsurance amount). Then you can decide whether to accept one of those frames or choose a different frame and personally pay the difference between what Medicare will pay and what those frames actually cost.
