EYEGLASS REPAIR

We can fix your broken eyeglasses …many times on the same day. Your broken frame will be repaired, adjusted, and double-checked to make sure they look like new again!

Our Pricing

Let me start by saying, every repair is different. They may have similarities, but all have small differences that make each one unique. That’s why it is impossible to give someone an exact price quote over the phone without seeing the broken frame first. Most frame repairs will cost anywhere between $15 and $40. That is much cheaper than the cost of purchasing a new frame and lenses.

Frequently Ask Questions

“When a frame needs a repair weld, will it be damaged or discolored to the point that it would be obvious and unsightly?”

Not always, it is true that there is some degree of discoloration with some of the welds, but our goal is to finish the repaired area to as close to the original finish as possible, and we are quite good at that!

“If I take my frames to one of the large one-hour optical chains, would they be able to do any repairs that I need?”

Not always, most Optical stores offer no eyeglass repair services.

Can I take the lenses from my broken frames and re-use them in a new one?”

Yes, sometimes we can. But first, we must find a frame that will not change your vision and optics of your lenses and a frame that they will fit into. 8 out of 10 times, we can find something that will work.

Common eyeglass repairs include:

METALFRAMES

Metal frames can be repaired with the soldering or welding process. We use gold and silver solder, especially for eyeglass repair. This solder creates a bond that is almost as strong as what you get from the manufacturer. Once the repair has been made, we buff and polish the area. The final touch is to align the frame.

We either repair your frame or rebuild it with our inventory of comparable parts for both metal and plastic frames.

PLASTIC FRAMES

Your plastic frames will be repaired, or replacement parts are used. Our repair process is unique, and we try to make it a permanent fix. If repaired, the repaired area is buffed and then polished. The frame is then cleaned. We have a large inventory of parts for plastic eyeglasses and sunglasses. Our goal is to give you back your frames repaired and in working order. Thank you, Drew Alan.

Dr.Martin Sigman

New Hyde Park Optometrist

One of the most important parts of a comprehensive eye exam is identifying the right prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. Many doctors evaluate a patient’s vision by finding the combination of lenses that offer a “20/20” vision. However, there is much more involved in determining the best prescription for “perfect vision.”

A proper prescription should be based not only on the parameters that offer clear eyesight but also on a formula that gives the patient the greatest visual efficiency and allows the patient to process visual information seamlessly. This approach will result in eyeglasses or contact lenses that provide the best eyesight, the greatest productivity, and, most importantly, the greatest comfort.

Dr. Martin Sigman Optometrist

Dr. Martin Sigman uses a computerized vision testing system to fully evaluate each patient’s prescription needs. This latest technology allows him to first utilize objective computerized instruments to analyze the eyesight status, the lens prescription, the corneal shape, and the amount of pressure in each eye. This enables Dr. Sigman to examine the patient’s visual system with several computer-guided tests. Measurements can be made in extremely small, highly accurate units. Various prescriptions can then be noted and presented to the patient in quick successive order to let them see the difference.

Children and Sunglasses 10 Reasons Why All Children Should Wear Sunglasses

  1. The lens of the child’s eye transmits about 70% more UV than the adult eye, putting their retina at higher risk.
  2. Half of the lifetime sun exposure occurs in the first twenty years of life. Children are outdoors much more than adults.
  3. Because children are little, they spend much more time looking up toward the sun than adults.
  4. Children have generally not learned about the risk of sun exposure, while adults have.
  5. When a child’s eye gets sunburned, unless it is severe, they will not feel the pain as they do with the skin. The warning signs are not so apparent in children.
  6. The long-term effects of sunburned eyes are cumulative and not completely reversible. The cataract and macular degeneration of older age likely begin with childhood UV and blue light exposure.
  7. Hats only protect from above, not below, where reflected UV from water, sand, or concrete can do much damage.
  8. Children can be taught the importance of wearing sunglasses, just the same as wearing a seat belt or sunscreen for their skin.
  9. With ozone depletion occurring as much as 12% per year in certain parts of the world, our children are at higher risk of UV than we were growing up. We must protect our children’s eyes more than we protect our own.
  10. With newly designed sunglasses for children, that are soft, durable and affordable, and offer 100% UV and blue light protection, there is no longer any excuse for not buying your child sunglasses or for them wearing them.
