Gregory Blikstein is an NYS Licensed Optician and is the owner of Village Optical. Gregory has been with Village Optical for 10 years and has grown the company in many ways. He not only has slashed prices across the board so now even the biggest designer names are priced extremely competitively, but also made it available for patients to receive most prescription lenses and frames on the same day. Now, all customers can afford “that perfect frame”. He has introduced many new technological advances to Village Optical such as Auto-Refraction and Retinal Imaging technology so that patients can receive the best care for their eyes. Gregory is best known for his vast knowledge of lenses and lens technologies. He’ll spend as much time with customers as necessary educating them on all the different types of lenses and lens enhancements that are best for their particular visual needs.
