Founded in 1978 by optician, veteran, and entrepreneur Michael T. Ungaro, Metro Optics Eyewear has been providing the finest in vision care and eyewear to the Bronx community for over 4 decades. Our original Parkchester location is still thriving at 1332 Metropolitan Avenue, and our Community Outreach team are active participants in numerous local events around the neighborhood. The Metro Optics group also has 3 other convenient Bronx locations in Hunts Point, Westchester Square, and Throggs Neck.

We are proud to serve our patients with professional, personalized eye care. Each office offers full-service eye examinations and emergency care by medical optometrists; a huge selection of frames, from our Value selection to high-end designer styles; prescription and non-prescription sunglasses; sports & safety glasses; and a complete line of hard and soft contact lenses. Our extensively-trained vision care providers are fully licensed and certified, and specialize in customizing hard-to-fit prescriptions in today's fashion styles. Our in-house lens fabrication facility can provide same-day service on many custom eyewear orders.

Driver's License Renewal

Need to renew your New York State driver's license? Eye care professionals at all of Metro Optics' Bronx locations are authorized to perform the Vision Test required by the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and will complete your Vision Test Report, which you may then submit to the DMV. And, if you are a current patient of Metro Optics, this service is complimentary!
