The five Vision Center locations are the premium designer eyeglasses, sunglasses, and contact lens provider in Long Island and Queens. Everyday, our licensed opticians and staff work with every patient and customer to earn our reputation of providing not only the best eyewear fashion, but also optical service. We are dedicated to helping you see better while looking great. With five locations in Greenlawn, Bayshore, Moriches, Whitestone and Farmingdale, we offer the very best in precision optical lenses, fashionable eyeglass and sunglasses, state-of-the-art contact lenses, and comprehensive eye exams by licensed Long Island optometrists. From determining your optical prescription to walking out of our stores with the perfect pair of eyeglasses or the most comfortable contact lenses, great eye care at Vision Center is second to none.

When perusing our designer eyewear and sunglass collections at Vision Center, you may notice that we carry an extensive line of boutique eyewear designers and not any old licensed brand. We have found that boutique eyewear designers offer quality materials and superior value, whereas more streamlined and “budget” eyewear is made of poor materials with very basic and unappealing design. Our commitment is to providing the latest in eyewear trends, but also to sell it all for a fair price that’ll work with any budget.

Bayshore Eye Care

Featuring state of the art equipment and staffing friendly optometrists, Vision Center offers eye care to all ages, from infants to adolescents to adults. We provide Bayshore eye exams that are suitable to child and assess the healthy development of their eye sight. It is suggested that child receive a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year and their annual school vision screening is a poor substitute to visiting a licensed optometrist. While vision screenings at school may detect common refractive problems like nearsightedness or farsightedness, they may not catch everything including astigmatism or blurred vision. These eye problems need to be properly diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam with at trained professional at any of our five Vision Center locations through out Long Island and Queens.

Your eyesight can change a lot in a short period of time. If you don’t keep up on accurate prescriptions for your contact lenses or eyeglasses, you can strain your vision even more. Your professional and trusted Long Island eye doctors can catch a lot of problems before they get noticeably bad, and that can even mean saving your eyesight!

If you get frequent headaches go see an eye doctor to see if they might be caused by eye strain, which can be caused when you don’t realize you need a better prescription, and keep wearing your old glasses and contacts.

If you have blurry vision go to an eye doctor because chances are, you need a new prescription! You may also have an eye health issue, so see your eye doctor right away!

If you have odd blind spots or floating water-looking spots, with or without migraines, it’s a good idea to visit your eye doctor to see what’s causing them. Aside from being an annoyance, they may be caused by an eye illness.

If your eyes hurt, or are overly dry, why deal with the pain and dryness any longer? A quick visit to the eye doctor might just help clear it up, and won’t it be nice to know for sure if there’s something wrong, something that might be easy to fix and make the pain go away?

If you think you have an eye infection, or have injured your eye, like pink eye, see your eye doctor (or at least your family doctor) right away! Eye infections are highly contagious, and some can do permanent damage.

Visiting your eye doctor on a yearly basis, to keep your prescription up to date and to check on the health of your eyes is the most important doctors appointment you can make. Your eye sight is your most important sense and we’d like you to have healthy vision for the rest of your life.

Protect Your Eyes From Digital Devices with Vision Centers in Long Island and Queens New York

With all the advances in technology over the past decade, it seems that you don’t go anywhere without carrying some kind of device to keep you connected. Whether its a new tablet, a smartphone, or a laptop, we are constantly looking and becoming absorbed in screens. But many people don’t think about the impact it can have on our eye health and vision. Your Long Island and Queens optometrists at Vision Center are not suggesting you forget about this technology, but we offer a few tips for digital device usage that is both healthy and necessary for your vision health.

Eye strain is a common occurrence with digital devices, but many consumer forget that technology is meant to be ergonomic and conform to our standards. Just because the default setting of your smartphone or tablet has small text, doesn’t mean you can’t change it! Adjust your environment to suit your needs and promote healthier eyes. If possible, use a large screen or magnify the screen to reduce eye strain. For chair positioning, be sure to have a chair with excellent lower-back support and keep it close to your computer.

Prevent Eye Strain with Your Long Island Eye Doctors

Lighting is another environmental adjustment that can be made. Not only can you change your monitor settings to a reflective lighting scheme, you should make sure you have good room lighting. Keep the bright lighting overhead to a minimum because it can overexpose and irritate the eyes. But don’t keep it too dim, because too little light causes the eyes to strain in order to see. Vision Center Optometry Long Island suggest that you keep a desk lamp shining on your desk. have window light off to the side rather than in front of in back of you. Position your computer screen to reduce window glare and reflections from overhead lights.

The perfect reading angle is at a slightly downward angle and roughly two feet away from your face. The center of your computer screen or smart phone should be four to six inches below your eyes. Don’t forget that you can adjust the screening setting for optimal brightness and contrast.

As we said before, magnifying the text and images on your device will prevent squinting. Almost every device can be adjusted to display with larger text, which will make reading easier and your eyes will thank you.

Lastly, it seems simple, but don’t forget to blink! Blinking washes your eyes in naturally therapeutic tears, which is a nice refresher for those of you wearing contact lenses. Digital devices are set up for non-stop work, but you don’t have to work non-stop too! Our Queens optometrists suggest you take a break every twenty minutes and look away from your screen for twenty seconds at something farther than ten feet away.

The most common effects of digital overuse are eyestrain, double vision, temporary short-sightedness and visual fatigue. The term eyestrain alone can cover a range of symptoms, including irritation, soreness, photosensitivity and general tiredness. If you suspect that your eyesight is suffering from constant technological use, you may need eyeglasses or contact lenses. Our five optical stores in New York provide comprehensive eye examinations, a large selection of designer eyewear and contact lenses exams and fittings. We have five convenient locations in New York including Bayshore, Farmingdale, Moriches, Greenlawn and Whitestone.
