Celebrating 90 Years as Your Home for Healthy Eyes

March 23, 2017

Back in 1927 founder Jack Cohen pioneered a new philosophy in the retail eyewear business. His vision was simple:

Everyone who needs prescription eyeglasses wants to look better, see better, and feel better about themselves.

His company began by selling eyeglasses from a pushcart on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. And ever since then the brand has evolved and grown to over 130 franchise stores across the US and Puerto Rico. Today you can still enjoy Cohen’s rich heritage of personal attention, comprehensive care, and affordable designer style.
For us, it’s all about the relationships—with you, our customers, and the vibrant neighborhoods we all call home. As a way to say thank you for all your loyal support over the years, we’re celebrating with special in-store giveaways, promotions, and events through out the year.
Here’s some of the way’s we’re giving back…

Empowering Customers Through Sight

Giving back just makes us feel good, plain and simple.
Whether it’s providing free eyeglasses to people who need them in communities near and far, giving free eye exams for kids, or donating to hospitals in your neighborhood, Cohen’s is more dedicated than ever to making a difference worldwide. And you are a part of it.
