Hello Gotham City

Two weeks ago was America’s largest vision related conference and trade show, Vision Expo East, held once again in the Javits Center in New York City. Naturally Kennedy & Perkins was represented as well by our own Dart Messick and Rick Kennedy as well a several of our key optical staff members. We saw a lot of great product we are bringing back to our customers from the newest styles in eyeglasses and sunglasses, to the newest in lens technologies to make your eyeglasses even lighter and your eyesight even sharper.

Progressive Education – Shamir Autograph III

Shamir The staff at Kennedy & Perkins is undoubtedly the best educated, most experienced optical team in New England. We recently had a company-wide education evening learning about the newest, most exciting lens from Shamir, the Autograph III. The Autograph III is a brand new balanced progressive lens that is holistically adapted to your individual prescription, giving each person unparalleled clarity in a comfortable lens. (Some of us have been testing this lens over the last several months, and wouldn’t give them up for just about anything!) Pictured here is Pam Benson-Gibson of Shamir, one of the country’s best optical educators and your friends and family at Kennedy & Perkins.
