About Us

Our Team

American Vision at The Court has established a reputation for exceptional eye exams and has become known as suburban Philadelphia’s place to go for the finest selection of eyewear. Best of all, from the moment you walk into our store, you are our guest, and treated as a person—not a number! While we do have some of the most cutting-edge eyewear and lenses, we take care of our customers with old-fashioned friendliness. We have been serving the tri-state area for almost forty years and love seeing our littlest patients grow up, and then bring their children in—it’s a testimony to our unrivaled service and skills.

Dr. Gary Kirshner

Thirty-eight years ago, I started on a mission to provide the highest quality eye care and products to the King of Prussia area. Even though my practice is in a heavy retail environment, I made a decision to operate as a family owned business, hiring not only the best opticians and ancillary staff but also those whose personalities would treat my patients and customers with the same kindness and compassion that I do.

I consider myself a very lucky man since I still love coming to work every day. Having a wonderful staff that I can truly call my family, and patients that I look forward to seeing each year, energizes me into being the best that I can be. The greatest compliment I can receive is when I get 2nd, 3rd and even some 4th generation of family members coming to my office entrusting me with their vision.
With that said, Cindi and I are always looking to update our eyewear with the latest in fashion design and keeping abreast with newer and better lens technologies. I’ve also added 2 pieces of equipment to better serve my patients with an OCT that can diagnose macular degeneration and glaucoma much earlier in the process and an automated digital wave front refractor that makes prescriptions more accurate and easier for the patient to respond.

Thank you to all our loyal customers for always supporting our business and welcome new ones to keep us growing.

Every one of us takes pride when we are told we are doing a good job by a boss or a peer. Better yet, we love it when a customer or patient tells us we did a good job. We were recently taken aback, however, when one of America’s top industry trade publications told us we were being recognized as one of America’s Finest optical shops. Invision Magazine featured American Vision at the Court in the January 2016 issue and we couldn’t be prouder of our staff and our store. We invite you to stop in and see us today!


We have the best customers any store could ever want. here’s what some of them have said about us:

Had a great experience getting my first pair of progressive lenses. The female owner personally helped me select the coolest frames which I already have received many compliments. When I picked them up the whole staff made me feel great and explained how to use these lenses. Now I can see perfect for both far away and on the computer.

I am hard to fit for glasses, and for years I suffered with uncomfortable frames. The staff at American Vision worked closely with me to find a stylish solution that worked for me. My experience with Dr. Kirshner has also been excellent. He is thorough with an engaging bedside manner. I’ve now been a customer for two years could not be happier.
