Hearing From You


“Superlative service and selection is what you will find at Zeitlin Optik. Dr. Marc Zeitlin has proven to me that he is the best in his field. I must give him all the credit for recently selecting the perfect frame for my face. When you have strangers pulling you aside to give you a compliment and asking where I purchased them, that’s reason enough. Thank you, Dr. Zeitlin!”

“Impeccable, efficient and courteous service. Thank You!”

"20 years, 12 states & 3 countries...and I still rely on Zeitlin Optik. Why? Because while the overwhelming majority of people shop for cosmetics—Mark understands that the "lenses" are really the most important part. He makes sure that your vision needs are simpatico with your frames or he'll tell you that you're going to have a reduced field of vision. Old school precision with avant garde styles. There is no better choice.

"I have been returning to Zeitlin Optik for my glasses for many years. I appreciate the casual friendly atmosphere of this shop combined with a meticulous attention to detail. Marc Zeitlin travels the world bringing back a wonderful selection of frames from Japan, Germany, France and Switzerland. Styles range from classical with a flare to elegant cutting edge- never the usual fare. Both the lenses and the frames offered are of superb quality. Selecting a new pair of glasses here is a pleasure.”
—Bill P.


“Whatever your profession or personality, Marc, Rachel, and staff are incredibly savvy at helping you find the perfect frames that fit your current lifestyle or aspirational self.  Take as much time as you like, they want you to be thrilled with your frames—and you will be. People will stop you in the street and ask where you got those frames. Zeitlin Optik is a rare find. I rely on their precision in grinding even complex prescriptions and I am welcome any time for polishing or adjustments to the fit (I am hard on my frames), or just to try on the latest. Great people, wonderful store. Go and you will be spoiled forever.”

“There’s always a solution, never a problem there. I can’t tell you what a pleasure it is to have finally found a place to get what I want. And believe me, I’ve searched.”

“I've bought my glasses ONLY at Zeitlin for about 20 years. As an architect, I appreciate Marc's keen sense of style and craft. The selection of frames is extraordinary and exclusive, suiting a range of taste and personality, while never seeming outright pretentious or trendy. He not only makes sure that the glasses fit your face, but that they really project who you are.”
—Ivan Brice Architect


“I nearly cried last year when I left Zeitlin wearing my new glasses. It was as if I was 10 again – nearly 50 years ago – and got my first pair of glasses, and saw the leaves on trees for the first time. Priceless.”
—Katy R.

“Last week, on my first visit to NYC, I broke my reading glasses. With an opera to attend that evening and a flight to catch next day, time was short. Eddie and his assistant were delightful to deal with—it only took them three tries to find me the perfect frames. Eddie did a running repair on the old glasses so that I could read my programme at the opera. Next day the new glasses were ready at the time promised, and I was all set to read my book on the flight home. Since my return I have had many compliments about the frames, and I do appreciate the quality of the lenses, as I have not experienced such comfort when reading for some time. Thank you, Eddie and colleague.

“I’ve been buying glasses from Marc Zeitlin for about 15 years. Marc is a man who brings a missionary-like zeal to his work, and it shows: His lenses are outstanding. And it’s not just me who thinks so: Two different eye doctors who’ve examined me have commented—unprompted and spontaneously—on the high quality of my lenses. Zeitlin’s frames are first caliber, too. Not surprisingly, all this skill and taste and handholding comes with a price. But I guarantee you, this is money that is VERY well spent.”

 “I have known Marc and his work for almost 12 years. He has made my quest for excellent and stylish eyewear a perfectly simple one! His team is superb too. They are friendly and very capable. It has been a fun and rewarding experience to have Marc on my side for my eyewear needs.”
