Affordable Eyeglasses for College Students: EyeCampus Discount Program

Welcome to September in New York. Classes are heating up, so you especially need to keep your style in check! With the city’s stream of new students from all over the world, you’re sure to be getting a taste of new trends that’ll be hot this season.

But let’s face it: you’re a student, and a disposable income you most likely don’t have. And with the long hours of schoolwork you’re putting in, there’s certainly one thing you can count on: the need for a great pair of eyeglasses.


The good news is, looking good doesn’t have to cost a lot. Did you know that Cohen’s Fashion Optical offers a discount plan designed just for students 16 to 25 years old? It’s called the Eye Campus student discount program, and it gives you 30% off most designer and fashion eyeglasses frames. That’s a pretty big discount!  All you have to do is show your student ID and driver’s license at your appointment. Cha ching!


I recently visited a few of New York’s many colleges to see what’s hot on campus this year.  I spoke to a bunch of students wearing prescription eyeglasses to find out not only what they liked in eyewear, but what’s really important to them when it comes to buying eyewear.  Of course, I also wanted to see what they thought about the EyeCampus discount program!

The consensus?

  • They love popular, designer glasses brands and trendy glasses (especially the looks celebs are wearing!)
  • They don’t have a lot of money to spend on glasses
  • They will shop at eyewear retailers that provide quality products at a value
  • They look for affordable designer glasses that let them show off their personal style
  • They will use a coupon to save money

That’s what’s great  about Cohen’s Fashion Optical.  Not only do they have popular, designer glasses brands like DKNY, Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci, Lacoste and Calvin Klein, they also have their own affordable collection of eyeglass frames designed just for New Yorkers (and those who’ve come to join our fabulous city!)


What I love most about Cohen’s (and it’s great for college students) is their founding value: that everyone deserves fashionable eyewear. What better way to embrace the culture of New York City than a trip to Cohen’s welcoming “neighborhood.

Cohen’s has a history of helping New Yorkers look better, see better, and feel better about themselves. They’ve been doing it for over 85 years, so you know they aren’t going anywhere. It’s a New York City retail landmark!  Plus, Cohen’s has over 130 stores in the US and Puerto Rico, with most in the NY metro area, so there’s bound to be one near you. You’ll find 100s of designer and fashion eyeglasses frames for every personality, style, and wallet.

It’s never too soon to start saving, and Cohen’s helps you get trendy glasses and designer styles without paying a lot! Make an appointment to meet with an EyeStylist today, and don’t forget your savings! Get your EyeCampus 30% off coupon here.
