Craig Ferst was born and raised in Brooklyn. He has been in the optical industry for over 40 years, having attended NY City Tech, in Brooklyn, to attain his NY Ophthalmic Dispensing License in 1983 and his NJ license in 1986.

He has worked for small sole practitioners up to corporate companies, as an optician but also as a manager and trainer of opticians all over the United States.  He brings years of knowledge of frame fitting & cosmetics, as well as lens fabrication techniques, to assure your eyewear is the best fit & vision possible.
