About Our Store
Come see where it all began! At the corner of Orchard & Delancey Streets stands our original Cohen’s Fashion Optical store in New York City. Our founder, Jack Cohen, started the family business selling eyeglasses from a pushcart on Orchard Street in 1927.
Demand for our glasses grew beyond the cart and the business moved to this first retail location on the corner of Orchard and Delancey Streets. Cohen’s Fashion Optical has been a part of the Lower East Side community for almost 100 years and we are proud to be your neighborhood eye doctor, fashion eyewear destination and offer both products and services at the best prices.
Cohen’s Fashion Optical was the first optical store in New York City to offer fashion frames, and today we carry one of the largest selections of designer frames from top brands including Gucci, Ray-Ban, Tom Ford, Chloe, Versace and more. Visit us today to browse our selection, check out our latest offers, and schedule an eye exam with one of our expert Optometrists.
