GC Optics is not your ordinary optical.
Sure, we sell readers, eyeglasses and sunglasses that are super cool and well priced. We also sell contacts for every specific need. But we make it fun. GC optics stands for GEEK and CHIC, because where there is science, there is also style.
Come see who we are. Bring in your RX. Pick out some new frames. Try them on in person. Leave with something new. If you need an eye exam, our NYC Doctor is in the office regularly to check you out.
We are family owned and operated and believe everyone deserves expert, personalized care. We live in Warwick and appreciate our neighbors throughout Orange County, NY. Se habla español.
fashion frames: PRESCRIPTION eyeglasses and sunglasses
In need of new fashion frames? Bring us your eyeglass prescription or current glasses and we can create new eyewear from our eyeglasses or sunglasses in stock. We’ve got a great selection of men’s, women’s and children’s frames and sunglasses. Any valid prescription can be filled, whether you have astigmatism or need Progressive Lenses. We cut our lenses on-site in our optical lab. Should you not have a valid prescription we offer exams for a new prescription. Are you looking to try Transitions lenses? We can tell you about all of the great colors and how Transitions will benefit you. We carry Varilux lenses and are the exclusive local Zeiss certified office.
CONTACT LENSES & Myopia control
Want to try new contact lenses? We can find you the best contact lenses for your needs and order them for you. Our prices can’t be beat by online retailers. First time contact lens wearer? No worries. We’ll take the time to train you with confidence and ease.
We are the only local office with MiSight certification. This contact lens treatment for kids helps stop the progression of myopia and allows them to be eyeglasses-free. Additionally, with CRT (corneal refractive therapy), we can help stop the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in children with custom contact lenses they wear during sleep.
Scleral lens, dry eye & Keratoconus
Are you suffering from dry eye or Keratoconus? Galo is ahead of his time when it comes to specialty contact lenses. Whether you’ve been diagnosed with Keratoconus, suffer from dry eye or are suffering from post-Lasik issues, Scleral lenses can offer you better vision than you ever thought possible.
There’s no need to travel to NYC for this specialized, custom treatment. Galo can see you right here in Warwick for a fraction of the price, making the fit and followup much more convenient.
Do your children need new kids eyeglasses? All that screen time may be damaging for your kids vision. Nearsightedness affects many children, don’t miss the signs. We can address myopia with prescriptoin glasses and perhaps even set them up with specialty contacts (CRT and MiSight) to help stop the progression of poor vision. Our eyewear selection for toddlers, tweens and teens is fun and exciting, offering them accessories they’ll want to wear.
Presbyopia / Mature Eyecare
Ready for your first eyeglasses or for fashion forward readers? If you’ve had to enlarge the text on your phone or hold the menu just a little further away, come see us. We make readers for men and women cool. Glasses are going to be part of your new wardrobe— bring a friend, grab a styling tray and let’s pick some great frames together. We can make basic readers or get you started on Progressive Lenses.
