A new branch of Vision Space Optometrist just opened in Sunway Giza. I was at their launch a couple of days back, and I'm impressed with their very unique and niche brands of eyewear available. This is their third optical centre located at B-15-G Sunway Giza, with two other optical centres located at Damansara Uptown and SS2 bungalow house.

With a tagline that reads "Vision For Life", Vision Space Optometrist embodies their belief and passion that everyone needs healthy eyes and good vision to see our world clearly and enjoy life fully. One of the key selling point of Vision Space Optometrist will be their number of qualified and experienced optometrists using the latest eye care instruments. At Sunway Giza itself, they have 2 full time optometrists and 4 eye examination rooms, way more than your usual optometrist outlet.
|Some of the high tech eye care instruments available|
Vision Space Optometrist boasts of 10 optometrists across their 3 outlets and have invested close to RM1 million in vision care equipments. They perform services which includes a comprehensive eye examination, vision evaluation for eye prescriptions to suit different lifestyles.
|Care for your eye|
Upon entering the outlet, I was intrigued by the wide variety of eye wear, spectacles and sunglasses offered by Vision Space Optometrist. They do love niche and unique eyewear, as the owners source for the best eyewear from all over the world. Their staff is an expert too, in choosing eyewear that complements the wearer's face shape, features, skin tone and style.

I was introduced to one of the partner, Ms Loo Huey Yee who is in charge of Vision Space Optometrist Sunway Giza. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in Optometry at UKM in 2009, very experienced and highly skilled in providing vision care to customers. I was impressed with her depth of knowledge, and very accommodating in answering all my queries about my glasses.

Going through the eye tests for myself, I was pleased to find out my eye 'power' has remained the same for the past 3 years or so. This means I can start making more glasses with the same lens power and be able to rotate among them. Here at Vision Space Optometrist, they have the equipment to capture photo of the back of the eye (retina), to check for retina related diseases (glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes retinopathy, retinal tear, etc). Real high tech stuff there.
