Welcome to Metro Optics Eyewear of Parkchester
To our valued patients, neighbors and partners:
We care deeply about doing what is best for our patients and staff, while continuing to provide services wherever possible. Due to the ever-changing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, we are temporarily closing most of our locations as of March 22nd.
Our 25 Westchester Square location will be available for emergency eye care services by appointment only, as well as eyewear pickups and repairs. Please call 1-800-230-EYES to request an appointment at Westchester Square, if urgent care is needed. (Please note, the CDC has recommended that all routine eye care be deferred until further notice, in order to slow the transmission of COVID-19 through our community – so we will not be performing routine eye exams at this time). We hope to reopen and resume normal operations as soon as possible – please stay tuned here on our website, as well as our social media pages, for updates.
If you wish to place an order for glasses, you can click here to shop Metro’s Value collection on our online store, with 2 complete pairs starting at $99. For expanded shopping options, call 1-800-230-EYES and associate will assist you.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding, and stay well.
