Elegant Eyes™ is a family owned and operated optical center with a rich history that dates back to 1987. The family business began with James and Doris Slaughter of Slaughter’s Opticians in about 1960. In 1987, Denise, opened the flagship Elegant Eyes store on Broad Street in Newark, New Jersey. In approximately 1992 Elegant Eyes presented its second location in East Orange, New Jersey and it stayed opened until 1999. In 2003 my brother & I re-launched the East Orange location based on pure demand by their loyal clientele.
