Sam Pirozzolo

N.Y. Licenced Optician and Contact Lens Practitioner

Sam has been a New York State Licensed Optician for well over 30 years. A rarity among opticians, Sam is also licensed to fit contact lenses and specializes in hard to fit astigmatic and gas permeable contact lenses. Sam constantly takes continuing education classes to keep up with the latest technology in optical lenses design and eyeglass materials. 

Due to his many years of extensive experience making, fitting, selecting and repairing eyeglasses, Sam  calls himself a dinosaur of the eyeglass industry. Sam says, "People are often shocked at how much better they can see and how much better their eyeglasses fit after I adjust them. Most eyeglass stores simply hand you your glasses and don't realize how critical the proper adjustment and alignment of eyeglasses can be. I can't tell you how many times people bring me glasses from other stores and tell me their problems and I am able to help them for little or no cost. When they ask how I did that I simply tell them that I wasn't delivering pizza last week."

No matter what questions or visual needs you may have, Sam will be able to help you pick the best glasses for you. Progressive lenses, digital progressive lenses, thick lenses or thin lenses Sam has helped generations of very satisfied adults and children. Sam has been recognized countless times for the service and quality he provides. He has been featured as the only recommended  optical shop in Queens by http://mommypoppins.com/newyor... for his attentive service with children.
