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.
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.
