When did Harborside Optical open at Harborside?
We have been at Harborside since July 2002.

What services do you offer?
Our services include comprehensive eye exams, medical eye exams, pediatric eye examinations and contact lens fittings – for specialty lens wearers and first-timers, too! We have a state-of the art lab for customizing and crafting prescriptions on premise, and we also carry a range of exclusive and fashionable eyewear.

Tell us about the team at Harborside Optical.
The Harborside Optical team is like no other. Our opticians, our optometrist and every member of our staff strive to give every patient one-on-one personalized service, helping them find the best solutions for their eye health. It’s a very family-like atmosphere.

What’s a typical day at Harborside Optical like?
We all wear many hats day to day. From performing comprehensive eye examinations for Jersey City residents or building tenants, to helping children pick out their first pair of glasses, every day is different!

Where does your staff like to have lunch?
Pizza Vita! Where else can you get brick oven Neapolitan-style pizza in 90 seconds? You can often catch us eating a Margherita or Drunken (Vodka) pie.

How would you describe being a part of the Jersey City business community?
We love being part of the JC business community at Harborside. Our location means that we get to service a diverse group of people. From the employees of the many companies in the area, to the local residents and their children, to teachers, cops and firefighters, we get to meet everyone. The area is always changing, and so are we.  Just recently, we expanded our office hours to include Saturdays, and we’re now open until 7pm most nights!

What’s one helpful eye-care tip?

All those computer users out there should try “20/20/20”! Every 20 minutes, for 20 seconds, look at something 20 feet away. It helps relax the eye muscles.

Bringing better vision into plain view.

Any big plans for 2019?
We are always reflecting on how we can improve our patient experience. Our goal for 2019 is for our patients to see 20/20.

Are there other stories or facts about Harborside Optical you’d like to share?
Yes! We have another office at One New York Plaza, in downtown Manhattan in the FiDi. We are also looking to expand to other locations that are convenient to our patients.
