Pros

Those in need of eyewear should check out what Opticana has to offer. This eyewear store in Silom touts itself as a full-service optical shop, and we can’t help but be impressed with its offerings!

They have high-quality and branded eyewear frames such as Zeiss and Ray-ban. Like in most eyewear stores in Bangkok, clients can also avail of their optical services, such as lens consulting and eye screening. 

Another thing we liked is that Opticana provides customised care for its clients. It’s a big plus that its staff can conduct comprehensive lens consulting before recommending a specific product.

We also liked that they have experienced professionals to cater to the needs of their clients using high-tech optical equipment. 

Moreover, we’re impressed that they offer frame repairs to ensure their customers can get good after-sales support–a plus in our books!

Most notably, the clients we spoke with praised the quality of the frames and the lenses provided by the shop. They also lauded the efficient and quick service of the store’s staff along with its competitive pricing for products and services.

On the downside, some of their customers mentioned they hoped that Opticana would offer longer warranties for their products. Although, we understand where they’re coming from, as after-sales services should ideally be free or at least reasonably priced.

Overall, we still recommend Opticana to customers looking to get quality eyewear and efficient services. We also think that this optical shop is a great option for those who want efficient service for a fair price.

Pros

  • Great selection of products to suit the different needs of customers
  • High-tech procedures and eyewear equipment
  • Professional staff and friendly optometrists

Cons

  • Can be a bit pricey

If cutting-edge technology and services are what you’re after, then Niche Nation Eyewear may just be what you are looking for. Customers availing of the services of this modern optical shop in Lumphini will be enthralled by its high-tech eyecare equipment!

Thanks to its partnership with Zeiss, a world-renowned optics manufacturer from Germany, Niche Nation Eyewear offers state-of-the-art optical products and services.

We liked that this technology provides accurate information and services to patients.

Furthermore, we noted that this store has a great selection of branded and high-quality lenses and frames for customers to choose from. With such a wide selection of products, we’re certain they can find the perfect eyewear for their needs. 

Those who availed of their products and services were also very vocal about how happy they were with the products they got and the professional services they received. Most of them also commended the very friendly optometrists who assisted them.

However, one recurring issue pointed out by those we interviewed was that prices can be a bit steep even when compared to other eyewear stores in the area. 

On the other hand, we believe that the added cost may be due to the store’s use of high-tech equipment for its services. So, overall, chipping in a little extra may be worth it!

Overall, we’re confident that Niche Nation Eyewear should be one of the top options when shopping for eyewear in Bangkok. Its products and cutting-edge services are enough to at least make shoppers check out what they’re all about.

Pros

  • Offers unique medical-grade protective eyewear for medical professionals
  • Offers varied styles and shapes for customers to choose from
  • Excellent design and build quality of in-house frames
  • Offers eye exams, personal style consultation, and eyewear maintenance.

Cons

  • Some products can be quite expensive

Next on our list is another Bangkok store to look out for if you’re out shopping for quality eyewear, Mykita. In its location in Sindhorn Village, Mykita offers its own brand of eyewear, along with some of the biggest high-end brands in the market.

To us, the various eyewear selections offered here are pretty impressive. They range from sunglasses, optical glasses, and special collections which involve collaborations with big-name brands, such as Leica and Bernard Willhelm.

What really blew us away, though, was how specific and customised their catalogue of eyewear frames is. They offer styles that are either masculine, feminine, or unisex, and also have different frame styles like aviator, squared, round, panto, and butterfly.

Another product that caught our attention is their protective eyewear called Mylon Guard One. This eyewear may have been developed for medical use and personal protection but we still see how stylish and functional it can be thanks to its overall build and design. 

In addition, they offer eye exams, personal style consultation, and free eyewear maintenance. To us, this shows their commitment to holistic customer service and satisfaction. 

The customers of Mykita who we spoke with said that they were really happy with the product they got. Furthermore, we’re happy to note that many claimed that the quality, the selection of frames, and the service they received here were all top-notch.

However, there are some who stated that some of their products can be quite expensive, with some eyewear costing around 26,000 THB each! 

While that price tag is quite shocking, to us, this steep price could be due to the very high-quality materials used for the said products and its high-end brand status.

With all of these considered, we think that Mykita is definitely worth checking out, especially for those who want to buy good quality and elegantly designed eyewear in Bangkok. We’re sure that this shop can offer something that will interest them.

Pros

  • A one-stop-shop 
  • Great variety of options, including lifestyle eyewear
  • Step-by-step eye consultation for customised eyewear offerings

Cons

  • Some staff come across as pushy

People looking for a one-stop-shop eyewear store should pay a visit to Siameyewear. They offer some of the major eyewear brands in the market today, coupled with high-tech optical services—impressive, right?

Another thing we liked is the wide variety of brands they offer, and can suit all tastes! Some of their high-end products include Prada, Mykita, and Garret, while their slightly more casual and affordable ones are Paul Frank and Ray-ban.

There are also a few products in their catalogue that cater to outdoor activities, such as hiking or biking. This is a plus in our books, as this captures and fulfils the needs of a wider customer base.

We also liked that they offer a step-by-step eye consultation for clients before offering them products based on their needs and their budget. This service is certainly a big plus since they use high-tech optical equipment when doing these consultations.

Regarding its staff and services, the clients we talked to spoke highly of Siameyewear. We’re also happy to find that, aside from liking the variety of frames and brands in the store, they commended the helpfulness and approachability of the staff! 

Furthermore, we must mention that the majority of Siameyewear’s customers stated that prices are very competitive. They also liked that the eyewear prices are negotiable and that discounts are regularly offered.

On the downside, a common concern raised in our surveys is that staff can be overly friendly and that it sometimes feels like they are trying very hard to make a sale. The store may want to look into this to avoid making some customers uncomfortable.

The bottom line is Siameyewear is a great option for those who want everything-eyewear related done on one site. It offers a great deal for those who are after convenience and quality products at a competitive price point.

Pros

  • Fantastic frames that are hand-crafted and built-in-house
  • Friendly and professional staff
  • Excellent pricing for products and services

Cons

  • Long queues and wait times

Owndays is currently one of the most popular brands not just in Bangkok but across the globe, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s certainly got a lot going for it in terms of product variety, service, and even pricing–but we’ll get to that later!

The best thing we liked is that they offer handmade frames that have high standards of production quality. We also appreciate that frame production is done in-house, as this ensures good-quality frames for the business.

We were also thoroughly impressed with the cost-effective model offered by Owndays. For one, lens prices always come at a standard rate of just 1,990 THB, regardless of the eyesight requirements of the patients.

They also offer clients a standard lens replacement fee of just 1,990 THB. To us, this is a fantastic deal as customers will only need to adjust their budget based on the frame they are getting.

The customers we interviewed were generally very pleased with the eyewear products they got and the services they received. A majority of clients also commended the store’s friendly and professional staff which we think gives this location an edge.

As expected though, a lot of these customers also complained about the long queues they encountered while paying for their eyewear with the cashier. This can’t be helped since Owndays’ popularity really cemented its wide customer base.

With almost everything going in favour of Owndays, we’re confident in recommending it to people looking for quality and affordable eyewear in Bangkok!
