Dr. S. Katims
 Dr. Sanford Katims (Sandy) graduated from Illinois in 1982 .and can diagnose and treat eye disease.  He is one of the leading LASIK co-managing doctors on Long Island and is one of only 3 co managers with staff privileges at the Garden City Center.   Sandy was also one of only 6 lead investigators for Acuvue Contact Lenses in 1992 and was commissioned by Johnson & Johnson to lecture many times throughout the northeast on the topic of contact lenses.  
 There are many types of lenses, the most common of which are single vision lenses, bifocals and progressives. Bifocals and progressives are used when there are different prescriptions for distance and near viewing. The lens is then required to have one prescription on the upper portion of the lens and another prescription in the lower portion. The lower portion is almost always the area used for near vision.  
 If the change in power is gradual, as it is in progressives, there is no visible line. The other advantage of progressives is that by tilting the head to look through different parts of the lens, one can focus for any intermediate distance as well as close up.  
 Polarization eliminates reflected glare off of a horizontal flat surface. It is particularly effective on the water. For example, if you are looking West in the afternoon, the sun causes significant reflections on the water. Regular sunglasses will dull the reflections, but polarized glasses will virtually eliminate them. This add on is also valuable in bright sunlight on a wet road or on a sunny day on the snow.  
 We feature what may be one of the largest frame selections in a private setting on Long Island. Frames are priced from roughly $ 95.00 to $ 325.00. Our designer lines include, but are not limited to the following:  
 Giorgio Armani  
 Calvin Klein
