As a Phd student, one thing which I am used to is sitting for hours on end in front of the computer without budging except to use the restroom or scuff down some food....ZzzzZZZ...I know...what a boring life right? I started realizing over the past year subtle changes in my vision especially at night, I can't see well when I am driving...... Due to my procrastination, I never got the chance to check my eyes since March last year(when I was still cleared for 20/20*),and finally manage to last Saturday at the soft launch of Malaya Optical, which represents the first eyewear boutique in Malaysia!!! You can't believe how excited I was to hear that they had all types of designer glasses there including someone to personally help you style your eyes according to your face!! woo hoo!!!
Huge sign in front...you will never miss it...it's along the same row as HSBC in Damansara Utama
With the Malaysian hottest bloggers who were waiting for their tour around the shop
Ryan Ho, the owner explaning a wee bit about Malaya Optical to us and how they give personalized treatment to each individual's eye...from a full eye check up to helping us choose glasses or sunnies (All your eye worries sorted)
Bridget falling in love with these pair of glasses
The pair I so wanted to buy but the "practical" side of me did not allow me too...It was really pretty with rhinestones at the side....:p Can you imagine wearing these pair of glasses to lecture!?! Probably caused the dean to have a heart attack!!!!
Maybe this pair is better for lecturing huh?
On to sunnies...
I was totally impressed with the range of sunglasses they had.....even Coach! I always thought they only sold bags....(shows how blur I am)
Oakleys!!!!!! I am still true to you and I am so glad they had that brand!
Lolliesssssssssss!!!!!!! Can't help but feel like a kid in Wonderland when I am in Malaya Optical..they give everyone lollipops..their trademark! I love it!
With the cute optometrist! Loving his bowtie. He took so much care in checking my eyes and explaning to me what Glacoma is all about...Eye health 101!
The area where they do a check up on your eye health
Do I look like a robot? That's where I found out the sad news that I am short sighted by 50 on each eye..not too much but that's the result of hours on end in front of the computer...boys and girls!! remember to rest your eyes every 30 - 45 minutes if you are a facebook addict or gamer or just love the computer!!!
Glaucoma machine...it was an interesting test because you stare at a dot inside and all of a sudden, a squirt of air goes into your eyes....be warned if your eyes are sensitive....
My eyes...and I am all clear!!! However, they did tell me that people with high blood pressure or heart attack are more proned to having Glaucoma....which is blindness in your eyes due to the impingement of veins... I know all of this thanks to the kind optometrist that took the time to not only explain but show me brochures!
I made another appointmet a few days later to continue a part of my eye check up and to get styled for my first pair of glasses.....
The person that helped style me...:)
My lollies which I got instantly when I arrived...truly liked how they would offer coffee or tea once you step in to the shop...makes you feel like you are in a high end store like Tiffany and co.......definitely a +1 for customer service
With Ryan who was explaning to me what the eye profiler did... a cool machine that basically tells you everything about your eyes...
