LITTLE OPTICS, INC.
192-07 Union Turnpike, Fresh Meadows
53-15 Roosevelt Ave.
Woodside, NY 11377
We provide eyeglasses and professional eye care for children, including infants, and young adults. Fitting children with glasses is a very different task than fitting an adult with glasses. Most children have serious medical issues like strabismus (crossed eyes) or amblyopia (lazy eyes). When we fit a child with glasses we start a relationship with them, as we will consistently see them during the year for adjustments as well as prescription changes. We alleviate any self-esteem issues associated with the stigma of wearing glasses. When your child leaves Little Optics, rest assured that they will feel confident.
