Why We Go To Kwong Shin

On leave again today – hurray! Spent most of it running errands, a major one of which was getting new glasses made.

Our regular optician is Kwong Shin Optical on the ground floor of Bras Basah Complex. Pilgrim Dad has been going there since he was a boy (yes, he’s been shortsighted a LONG time). When we got married I went along too. It’s not the most convenient relative to our home, but given the nature of the service, we’ve grown to trust Kwong Shin. Besides having a wide range of spectacles and lenses, they are professional and friendly. They make it a point to remember our names, and take the trouble to make sure our needs are met. The only downside is that they seem to have an endless stream of customers! So it can take a while to get served during a busy hour.

Today, we thought we should get our vision tested, boys inclusive. Thankfully neither Athos nor Porthos need glasses. Yet. (Hey, this is Singapore, myopia capital of the world….) Anyway, I really appreciated how James the optician took his time to make sure he checked all of us thoroughly, and his comfortable manner put the boys totally at ease despite it being their first experience. His wife Annie is always so bubbly and cheerful.

And of course, a big part of any visit to Kwong Shin is that I get to hop into Evernew Bookstore!

  1. I concur with your comments. I have been a regular at Kwong Shin Optical for several years and yes, they do make you feel comfortable, like remembering your name and knowing a little about you. Likewise I never forget Mr Lam and Ms Rose. I have two kids of my own and am glad to say that they have not succumbed to the ‘myopia’ generation of Singapore. This is only because I strictly use incandescent lights at home instead of fluorescent light. Hey! I am dropping by Kwong Shin Optical this afternoon for new prescription glasses. Take care.
