east harlem eye care clinicWe are proud to stand out as the leading optometry practice for East Harlem and its surrounding NYC streets. Our eye doctors will take care of all your vision needs expertly and affordably. We perform detailed vision testing to ensure that your prescription for eyeglasses and contact lenses is accurate, in addition to comprehensive eye exams to inspect for any signs of eye disease or problems. If you’re shopping for a new pair of designer frames or sunglasses, our Manhattan optical collection has it all – and our friendly optical staff will help you select the best eyeglasses for your vision and face. We offer economical eyewear in East Harlem for many vision conditions, including astigmatism and presbyopia. If you suffer pain caused by dry eye, pink eye or any eye infection, or as a result of an eye emergency, our eye doctors are experienced and qualified to treat you and alleviate your pain.

Located conveniently to serve East Harlem (known locally as El Barrio), our eye care clinic is surrounded by many NYC landmarks worth seeing. The Graffiti Hall of Fame is just around the corner. This famed site features the inventive creations of many well-known street artists. Another art display near Specs for Less can be viewed at the nearby Museum of the City of New York. This exhibition space celebrates the history of NYC and all the incredibly diverse people who call it home.

If you’re in the mood for a multicultural experience in East Harlem, check out the El Museo Del Barrio, only a few blocks away. Here you can immerse yourself in Latino culture through storytelling sessions, craft workshops, and various interactive Latino activities. When you’re looking for a place to eat after spending a day at this museum, why not stay in the Latin theme and head to Cascalote Latin Bistro? This rustic neighborhood restaurant serves innovative foods that will delight anyone who loves genuine flavor!

Other recommended places to grab a bite in East Harlem include La Shuk and the Moon House Restaurant. Trendy and priced for any budget, La Shuk specializes in French-Moroccan dishes, such as lamb kebabs and green shakshuka. The Moon House Restaurant will take you through China and Japan, with a large menu of Asian items such as bento boxes and sushi. For a sweet ending to your meal, stop by La Tropezienne Bakery, a charming little place that’s bursting with delicious confections.

Central Park is a pleasant stroll from our Specs for Less Manhattan branch. To walk through a smaller public park with local character, we love Marcus Garvey Park. Two playgrounds, both of which have units designed to accommodate kids with disabilities, invite kids of all ages to play and explore. There are fountains, slides, and drawbridges, as well as an outdoor pool and an amphitheater that hosts many summer performances.

We hope you appreciate East Harlem and its greater neighborhood as much as we do at Manhattan Specs for Less!
