New York, NY (PRWEB) August 15, 2007
Vintage style meets modern day shopping as Moscot, venerable Optician and New York City institution, launches their new interactive website http://www.moscot.com. You can now custom design the coveted Moscot Originals, made famous by Johnny Depp and other celebrities, for your very own signature vintage look. The Design Your Own Glasses option let's you mix and match the hottest styles and colors of Moscot Originals. Glasses can be customized down to the smallest detail including custom sizes (for smaller or bigger heads) and purchased online.
The newly re-designed site showcases a fresh look and feel while incorporating the classic approach Moscot is famous for. For an authentic piece of New York City history customers can view and purchase vintage photographs of the Moscot family and New York City's famed Lower East Side, taken by Sol Moscot himself, directly from the site.
The comprehensive eye care services patients have come to expect from all Moscot locations can now also be found on the website. Expert advice on timely eye health topics from Dr. Harvey Moscot, Optician and fourth generation owner of Moscot (along with his brother Kenny Moscot,) will be posted on a quarterly basis. And, coming soon, customers will be able to refill contact lens prescriptions online.

Venerable optical retailer, Moscot, has been a New York City institution for over 90 years. Patriarch Hyman Moscot began selling eyeglasses from a pushcart on Manhattan's famed Lower East Side in the early 1900s and the rest, as they say, is history. Today, fourth generation Moscot siblings, Kenny and Dr. Harvey Moscot, run the company. Each of the three Moscot locations offer a selection of more than 1,000 frames from a wide variety of well known designer eyewear and sunglass designers, as well as a comprehensive inventory of contact and eyeglass lenses, and the company's very own branded line of vintage-inspired glasses and sunglasses, the wildly successful, Moscot Originals. Moscot's newest line, Moscot Spirit, remains true to the company's classic downtown identity by mixing elements of the Originals with modern new styling. Moscot Eyecare (aka Moscot Vision Associates), the eye heath services also offered at all Moscot locations, provides patients with comprehensive eye care services - from routine eye examinations and vision exams for corrective lenses to sophisticated eye health assessments using the latest technology available for a more accurate diagnosis and treatment of a full range of medical eye conditions and maladies. Together the Moscot brothers have expanded the business while maintaining the spirit of their great grandfather's philosophy with their current mission: "To offer the best possible optical experience to our customers and patients by dispensing warmth, courtesy and expertise."
