Our History

Dr. Philip Meltzer and the Spectacles staff have been servicing your optical needs for over 27 years. Located in the heart of Great Neck's shopping district, Spectacles friendly, knowledgeable, and professional staff take pride in offering you the best selection in eyewear, contact lenses, and more.  Formerly known as The Ultimate Spectacle, Spectacles has become synonymous with fashion, quality, and service in Great Neck and beyond.

Meet the Doc

Dr. Philip Meltzer graduated from the New York Technical College Optician School in 1977, ranked number one in his class. From there he went on to graduate from the University of South Florida in 1980, and finally the Illinois College of Optometry in 1984. During his residency, Dr. Meltzer was the eye doctor at the Indiana State Correctional Facility, an experience that taught him that life is truly better on the outside.

 

Dr. Meltzer opened Spectacles in the spring of 1988 and has been dedicated to providing his patients with the best eye care in the 28 years since. When he’s out of the office Dr. Meltzer loves riding his Harley, ice hockey (Let’s Go Rangers!) and spending time with his family.
