Scarsdale Village is Seeing 20/20: Eye Gallery Opens New Location on Boniface Circle

RosennewstoreThe Eye Gallery has moved to a stunning and expansive new location on Boniface Circle, just around the corner from the original store. Seven months in the making, the light-filled space now includes over 3,000 square feet of display space, exam rooms and an inviting room for events and meetings downstairs.

We stopped in for a visit on Wednesday and Dr. Michael Rosen proudly took us on a tour of the next generation of the original Eye Gallery established by his father and partner Jay Rosen in 1979. Before we began, he offered us coffee from a professional espresso and cappuccino maker at the ready.

Dr. Rosen’s inspiration for his new flagship Eye Gallery was an experiential one, offering clientele and staff an exclusive, luxurious environment with a bright and energetic vibe. He commissioned artist Jillian Whelan of Coloring Wheelz for the artwork seen throughout the gallery. Rosen said, “We have been rapidly expanding over the past several years and were at max capacity. It was time for a larger space. We doubled our footprint in Scarsdale Village and completed the renaissance of Boniface Circle.” He explained that the new entry, large windows and welcoming store was designed by architect Len Brandes.

The new Eye Gallery offers clientele and patients his trademark extraordinary eye care and customer service, coupled with the latest in optical technology. From Digital High Definition Glasses, Blue Light Coating to prestigious Shamir custom lenses. Medically, Dr. Rosen has invested in the latest in diagnostic equipment, for highly accurate examinations and early detection of eye diseases. Making Eye Gallery an all inclusive destination for the ultimate in eye care.lightfixture

Eye Gallery of Scarsdale (formerly Scarsdale Eye Care) Established by Dr. Jay Rosen in 1979 opened as a small optometry practice in the heart of downtown Scarsdale, NY. Based on a philosophy of great personal care and customer service, the practice thrived in Scarsdale Village for many years. In 1998, Dr. Jay Rosen’s son, Dr. Michael Rosen, joined the practice. The business has evolved over time to meet new needs. In 2000, the Drs. Rosen doubled their space, becoming a recognizable presence in Scarsdale Village. Thanks to knowledgeable staff, customers and patients receive expert, comprehensive eye examinations, obtain eye disease detection and treatment, and have access to exclusive, high-end eyewear and sunglasses — all under one roof. In 2007, Eye Gallery opened a second location, this time in the downtown village of Chappaqua. The Eye Gallery is a place where art and science come together to provide you with a clear vision of well-being and personal style.
