An eye-care center is opening in Hunters Point this Saturday, where residents will be able to get their eyes examined as well as purchase prescription glasses.
The store, called OptimEyes Vision of LIC, is located at 5-27 50th Avenue, and will be the neighborhood’s first optometric practice and eyewear establishment.
OptimEyes will be owned and run by three graduates of SUNY Optometry – Drs. Pauline Leong, Rajat Shetty, and Scott Tisdale. To mark the opening on Saturday, the owners will be offering refreshments and raffles, and discounts on eye examinations from 1 pm through closing at 6pm.
The store, which is 2,400 square feet, is comprised of 2 examination rooms and a retail dispensary area where customers can buy prescription glasses, frames and sunglasses.
OptimEyes will be open Monday through Fridays (10:30am-7pm) and Saturday – Sunday (12pm-6pm).
“We are excited to be part of the growth and all the wonderful things happening in Long Island City,” said Dr. Scott Tisdale. “Optometric services are a key staple in any neighborhood and we look forward to providing top notch personalized care.”
