n the mysterious world of the optometrist H.L. Purdys stands alone. If there were a better place I would be there. The story does not end with the selection of a frame and the ordering of lenses. That is where it begins, this is one of the fields that absolutely requires a person with the knowledge of fitting and the confidence to recommend the appropriate shape and material that will assure success. After thirty - five years away from New York, when I returned I went straight to Purdys. As luck would have it I had frames that needed service, not the most profitable part of the business, and as luck would have it one of the frames went missing. This was certainly partly my responsibility as I did not pay attention to the matter and when I showed up they took full responsibility and repaired my frames at no charge and supplied me with a new air for those that were mislaid. In a nut shell they restarted the relationship at the cost of a couple thousand dollars, I would be happy to lay odds that no other optometrist in NYC would have done the same. This is a retailer of distinction and worth a visit just to experience something that has become as rare as hen's teeth, people who care and stand behind their promise to do it right and treat you as an esteemed part of the business. I have no plans to leave New York in the foreseeable future and part of the benefit is to have Prudys taking care of my family and my vision needs. To everyone at Purdys, thank you
