9 Best Spectacle, Glasses & Optical Shops in Singapore For Every Budget (2022): Prescription Glasses From S$22.90!

profileJoel Koh

As someone who’s sadly been bespectacled since the age of six, I’ve grudgingly resigned myself to the fact that I’ll never again have perfect vision unless I pay silly amounts for Lasik.

Thankfully, spectacles are no longer solely for practicality – and these eyewear shops ’round Singapore know it all too well, with affordable yet stylish options to suit every budget.

We’ve also included their Google review ratings to help you make a more holistic decision. For shops with more than one outlet, we will be referencing their Orchard stores as they are the most accessible, which would mean more reviews.

1. Zenni Optical Frame + Lenses and Shipping From S$22.90

4.6

First up, we have the most affordable glasses from Zenni Optical.

Prices start as low as S$9.42 (US$6.95) for a pair of glasses which include the frame and basic prescription lenses with anti-scratch coating and UV protection.

But, it does not include international standard shipping (12 – 28 days), which will cost you another S$13.50 (US$9.95).

All in all, a pair of glasses will cost you about S$22.90, which is a steal if you have your other prescription ready.

You might be wondering why Zenni glasses are so cheap?

The company explains that Zenni glasses are made at a dedicated factory and shipped directly to the consumer. Also, because Zenni sells its glasses online, they don’t pay for brick-and-mortar retail space.

The only drawbacks are the long waiting time and the fact that they do not have a store in Singapore.

2. foptics Singapore: Frame + Lenses From S$35.90

At foptics, frames are split into five collections and range anywhere from S$35.90 (S$29.90 frame + S$6 basic 1.56 Standard Index lenses) for the more basic frames and lenses:

If you want something more premium, the fancier hybrid glasses that have clip-on sunglasses attachments start from S$75.90 (S$69.90 frame + S$6 basic 1.56 Standard Index lenses):

Source: foptics

What we particularly like is foptics’ pricing transparency.

There’re countless types of lenses to choose from, ranging from the basic 1.56 Standard Index lenses that cost S$6 more in addition to the frame. Whereas the most expensive lenses you can get are the fancy 1.67 Hi-Index (Thinner) lenses that cost S$170 more.

According to foptics, here’s how you can order a pair of glasses from them:

1. Select a frame

5. New China Opticians Frame + Lenses From S$65

 Google reviews)

This open secret of an optical shop has drawn customers since 1925, thanks to its sizeable eyewear range – some of which include vintage pieces from yesteryear (not really, but you get the drift).

New China Opticians offers complimentary eye checks and in-depth eye exams though It’s best to go on a weekday to dodge the crowds.

A pair of glasses from New China Opticians start from $65 ($20 frame + $45 1.56 Standard Index lenses).

6. Oblique Eyewear Frame + Lenses From S$95

 Google reviews)

The self-dubbed “fashion-forward eyewear visionaries” – quite a name to live up to, I reckon – aim to change the idea that all you need is one pair of glasses.

Source: Oblique Eyewear

That’s because Oblique Eyewear believes in the importance of being able to switch up your look with spectacle frames, no matter the occasion.

But, all things come with a cost. A pair of glasses from Oblique starts from S$95 (S$45 frame + S$50 plastic multicoated lenses).

Rather than simply peruse the online store, head to its physical shop for a wider selection of frames and promos.

7. Visual Mass Frame + Lenses From S$95

 Google reviews)

Despite its slightly steeper price point – prescription glasses start from S$95 (inclusive of frame + free Hi-Index 1.60 lens) – Visual Mass sure doesn’t scrimp on style.

Source: Visual Mass

Its (admittedly smaller) collection includes all manner of tortoiseshell frames, plus solid-coloured basics for all face shapes.

Be sure to also look out for occasional discounts in its online store, including 1-for-1 promos.

You’ll be glad to know you can buy the glasses online and pick them up at the Visual Mass Showroom in Orchard Gateway five+ days later if you know your prescription.

Otherwise, you can always book an eye exam along with your order.

8. Owndays Frame + Lenses From S$98

746 Google reviews)

What’s a story about spectacle shops without Owndays?

Each store stocks some 1,500 frames for your picking, and most orders are processed in 20 minutes or less.

A pair of glasses from Owndays starts from S$98. Prices include of pair of prescription Standard Hi-Index aspheric lenses plus a one-year warranty:

The best part? You can probably find an Owndays outlet near your home as there are 32 Owndays outlets in Singapore!

9. Zoff Spectacles Shop Singapore Frame + Lenses From S$98

 Google reviews)

Japan import Zoff launched in Singapore back in 2017 and are going strong.

Source: Zoff

A standard pair of glasses from Zoff will set you back S$98 (Frame + 1.55 Standard Index Lenses).

But why settle for a basic, mass-manufactured pair when you can go full-on geek?

If you’re feeling extra, of course. Recent collaborations include the Spiderman collection, which you’ll be able to pair with your lenses of choice – from Zoff PC Ultra Lenses to Aspheric Thin Lenses.
