We Relocated!

Howard Beach Vision Care has moved from the Lindenwood Shopping Plaza to Covert Avenue in Floral Park.

Covert Avenue is a quaint shopping district nestled between Floral Park and Stewart Manor. We are midway between Jericho Tpke (Jamaica Ave.) and Hempstead Tpke.

Floral Park is about 10 miles away, just on the other side of Belmont Racetrack. You can get there by either Southern State Parkway or Cross Island Parkway.

Via Southern State Parkway: East to Corona Avenue Exit. Left at light, over parkway and left at light. Right turn onto Meacham Ave. Continue North past Hempstead Tpke where it turns into Covert Ave. Continue past grade school on right and Sewanhaka High School on left. We are about 4 blocks past Sewanhaka on the left (West) side of the street.

Via Cross Island Parkway: North to Jamaica Ave. East. About 1/2 mile to Tulip Ave. (just past KFC on right). Tulip Ave. Through the center of town of Floral Park. About 1 mile to Covert Ave. Make left when Sewanhaka High School is on right. About 4 blocks North on the left side (West) of the street.

We will be renamed as Covert Optical. We hope that you will be able to visit us at our new location.

Cheers,

Mark

Safety Eyewear

Prescription Safety Eyewear Meeting ANSI Z87.1 Standard

Safety eyewear is an important piece of safety equipment and is required gear in manufacturing and construction.

 

Safety.frames

Important Reasons To Provide Prescription Safety Eyewear To Your Employees:

  • Significant OSHA fines have been imposed on businesses where safety violations found. All you need is one whistleblower or disgruntled employee to get an inspection by OSHA. If you are in compliance, you'll have nothing to worry about.
  • Employees are more likely to be compliant when the eyewear is comfortable and in their prescription. Goggles over glasses are uncomfortable and employees frequently and conveniently forget to use them.
  • Employees that see well are more accurate, make fewer mistakes, and have fewer accidents. Safety eyewear, properly fit, and in the employees Rx will give them the best vision. Goggles over glasses introduce smudges and reflections which reduce accuracy and safety.
  • Job site injuries upset workflow and reduce productivity. You may have to dispatch several people to seek medical attention for a single worksite eye injury.
  • Injured workers will need recuperation time, and may need to be replaced. Replacement and training can be a significant burden. And injury claims may affect your disability insurance rating.

Using Your Own Frame

Yes, we can put new lenses in your old frame!

Just because you have a change in prescription doesn't mean you have to buy a whole new pair of glasses.

Provided your frame is in good condition, we put new lenses into them.

If your frame is very old, we will advise that you replace it. But if you are very attached to it, and it is usable, we will carefully cut new lenses for it.

An important caveat is that we are cannot be responsible for your frame if it does break. It's unlikely to happen, but sometimes it does. In that case, we will discuss repair options or replacement options. We'll make it as painless as we possibly can.

About Internet bought frames

We can put lenses in those too!

We don't carry every brand and style. Sometimes you find a deal you just can't pass up, or find a vintage frame you just can't get elsewhere.

We'll handle them carefully for you, and adjust them for you too. We'll be very careful with them, but you'll assume responsibility should they break. 

Free Adjustments

We Adjust Anyone's Glasses - Even Ones From Wobbly Barker Or crappyglasses.com

Hey, we get it. You tried buying your glasses online.

(Actually, we don't get it. How would you know if they fit, or what they would look like? How did Wobbly Barker get the right measurements for lens placement?)

But now they hurt you, give you headaches, or fall off. Come in and let us make you more comfortable. No Charge!

Don't suffer. Bring them in to us for a tune up.

Our two opticians each have over 35 years of optical experience. We'll carefully adjust your glasses to make them as comfortable as can be.

And you can look at all we have to offer. Try on a frame or two. See the quality difference & compare prices.
