Testimonials

“I’ve been a Moss customer for eight years and what stands out most is their commitment to their customers and the consistency of their brand. When you buy from Moss you can expect high quality products and a friendly staff that goes above and beyond with their customer service and customer experience. My family and I are seeing the world clearly and always looking good!”

Arnold Monterroso, Lloyd Harbor, NY

“Moss Opticians is more like a family than a store you walk into for glasses. Randi and her staff have helped my 3 children & me for the last 15 years. First, they make you feel like a friend, then like family. Since my now teenage children were 18 months old, they have been helping to fit and pick out the perfect frames and lenses. I would not go anywhere else to get our glasses, sunglasses, and contacts. I highly recommend Moss Opticians. They are the best around & the only place to go.”

Kerry Hotine, Cold Spring Harbor, NY

“My family loves Moss Opticians! From the time we first went to Moss, we had an instant connection. They figured out our personalities quickly and have advised us perfectly since. They return our calls and texts promptly, help with the emergency broken glasses (we have two boys), and the last minute “I’m out of contact lenses!”, and are always happy to help with any other optical need. Simply put, they are wonderful and attentive.”

Purvi Gandhi, Cold Spring Harbor, NY

Randi and the entire Moss staff offer exceptional service and knowledge in caring for your vision. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my eye care!

Laura Mills, Huntington, NY

“They are always friendly and happy to see you and make you feel like family.  They genuinely care about helping you see the world more clearly while doing so in style.”

Dan Bauer, Miami, FL

“My first pair of glasses from Moss Opticians, circa 1996! There is no one else I trust when it comes to selecting glasses and sunglasses! Randi and her team are truly exceptional.”

Colleen Ramme, Huntington, NY

“I’ve been getting my glasses from Moss Opticians for 30+ years and won’t go anywhere else—I’ve never been anything but absolutely thrilled with my glasses. Chain stores, big box stores and online companies can’t provide the superb customer service, accuracy and quality offered by the team at Moss Opticians.”

Sue Epstein, Kings Park, NY

What brought me to Moss Opticians after years at Lens Crafters is their personal approach. They always remember your name, what you like. It’s like visiting good friends. Casey, the therapy dog, is always welcome and given yummy treats. The atmosphere is calm and delightful. It’s hands on and everyone is lovely! Plus, the selection is to die for!

Robin Newman, Dix Hills, NY

“I came to Moss Opticians with very specific needs and wants. Randi and her staff far exceeded my expectations with their knowledge of lenses and fit of frames. I am grateful to have met them! A customer for life!”

John Doerrier, Blue Point, NY

“Moss Opticians provides an outstanding optical experience. Randi and her team are caring and professional, making for a stress free, exciting and fun shopping experience. Their expertise in style and fit ensure you leave 100% satisfied with your frames and lenses.”

Desirae Stropoli, Huntington Station, NY

Marie McDonald

Office Manager

After 20 years as a customer of Moss Opticians, Marie joined our team in 2010. “I’ve spent so much time at Moss with four children, my husband, and myself all in glasses and contacts, it seemed natural to work here.”

With a 25 year background in interior design, Marie has a keen eye for detail; from office procedures to helping choose eyewear for our customers. She was also very instrumental in the move and redesign of our store in 2012.

Marie loves tending to her beautiful gardens, knitting, and boating.
