Dr. Harvey Moscot gave an entertaining and informative presentation today on Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) to the employees of Credit Suisse. Nearly 175 million Americans suffer from symptoms attributed to CVS, making it the most common work-related problem in America. Dr. Moscot helped the Credit Suisse team better understand what CVS is, how it's caused, and most importantly, what they can do to prevent or rectify CVS symptoms such as eyestrain, eye fatigue, dry-irritated eyes, burning eyes, focusing problems, light sensitivity, double vision, blurred vision, and even back pain, neck pain and headaches.
If you find yourself spending countless hours in front of a screen – be it a PDA, TV, or computer monitor - and lets face it, who doesn't - you may be suffering from CVS. Click here to learn more about Computer Vision Syndrome and how an anti-fatigue lens may be able to help.

The KOOPA’s colorful history begins in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, circa 1960, where its predecessor was the most popular frame among the Hasidim (Mazel Tov!). Fast-forward 50 years and this utilitarian chic frame still looks equally fetching whether you’re wearing The KOOPA at Schul, or while drinking at your favorite neighborhood watering hole.
The KOOPA’s slightly oversized rectangular frame is made from acetate and features two dot rivets on the temples, a saddle bridge, and five barrel hinge. The ophthalmic frame is available in Black Crystal.

The ETTA is fun and quirky with whimsy to spare, just like our Great Aunt Etta, for whom the frame is named. Whether shouting from her soapbox, spinning a tall tale, or just tooling around the Lower East Side, Etta was a true original. Wildly cheerful and always high-spirited, her joie de vivre is vividly captured in the frame’s embellishments.
Designed for women, The ETTA’s rounded cat eye is made from acetate and features two star rivets on the front and temples, and a seven barrel hinge. The ophthalmic frame is available in Black Crystal, Olive Tortoise, and Amber Stripe.

This special edition frame takes perennial MOSCOT favorite, The ZULU, and adds a whole lotta flash with an ultra reflective gold lens – just the right accessory for Uncle Zulu to remain incognito. Gold mirror lenses allow less light through for extra-added sun protection.

Accomplished cellist Trevor Exter returned to the MOSCOT stage on March 12th with drummer John Kimock for MOSCOT Music's Saturday Sessions! The duo packed the house with their funky soul pop sound, perfect for a pre-spring Saturday afternoon in the LES. We last saw Trevor in 2009 when he wowed the crowd at the Orchard Street Gallery, so we were super excited that Trevor came back for another show and introduced MOSCOT Music fans to another rising talent.
The Collection’s most creative frame, The GROVER hints of an Aviator but with a lot more attitude. Not a frame for the meek, The GROVER looks best on men with strong features — think chiseled jaw and other prominent manly facial features. Featuring a Mazzucchelli acetate front with metal temples, and a saddle bridge. Available in Brown and Grey.

These frames are big — really big. Stately on men. Sexy on women. Angular and oversized, The WINSTON looks great on large round faces, or on anyone who wants a tailored yet oversized look. Features a Mazzucchelli acetate front with metal temples. Available in Black and Grey.
