About Us

Ultimate Spectacle opened in March 2012 with a vision to achieve the highest standards in quality eye care. Jaclyn Edelstein, founder and owner, takes her family's unrivaled history in the optical industry and infuses its traditional values with her contemporary vision. Looking to create a boutique experience, she merges exceptional customer service with her avant-garde approach to style and selection in eyewear. Her passion speaks volumes as you walk through the doors, immediately feeling that this is no ordinary optical store. Have a seat on one of our barstools, make yourself comfortable, and be ready to have an eyewear shopping experience like no other. Seen it in Vogue, Blackbook, or The Sartorialist? Then you'll find it here!

As the "new kid on the block" of the Upper East Side, Ulitimate Spectacle pays particular attention to the level of eye care needs that the quintessential New Yorker and visitors from around the world expect. Our doctors take pride in giving only state of the art, comprehensive eye exams. Your visit will never be rushed or impersonal, whether its your first time wearing eyeglasses, contact lenses, or you are here for your annual check-up.

Our experienced stylists help to make the experience less daunting and more fun. Our licensed opticians make sure the frames you pick are in line with your prescription needs. Only the latest and innovative technology in lenses and contact lenses are made and made-to-order, in our lab. At Ultimate Spectacle, we respect the educated consumer and fashionista in all of us!

Ultimate Spectacle's mission is to give our customers and patients the ultimate experience in eye care and create a new culture in eyewear fashion. More importantly, we want our customers to rely on us for the latest trends in eyewear, but also find our friendly staff to be a familiar face they look forward to seeing for years to come.

We like to build relationships, so find us on Facebook and if you can't come over and say "hi", join our mailing list and we'll keep you posted on the latest!
