    I went with my friends to collect their spectacles on Friday at about 4pm. After they collected I decided I should make one cos I'm having difficulty in reading. They did all the test and quoted me a very good rate. I decided to make one. They told me I might not get it in time before I fly back to Spore but they mail it to me. I was surprised to receive a msg to inform me my spectacle is ready for collection on Sat. I'm so happy with their service and they take personal interest to ensure I'm comfortable wearing it. This is my first time wearing spectacle. I would said their service is the best cos they really go all the way to for their customer.

    Extremely helpful opticians that we were so lucky to find whilst on holiday in Penang. Due to husband's accidentally broken frames and loosing his eyesight, we googled local opticians and came across many but chose Vision First because it was highly rated. We were not disappointed at all! The staff recommended a solution of fitting the existing lenses into new frames and helped us to choose it as well. They then fitted them within an hour and practically saved our holiday! Whilst there I noticed a wide selection of frames and bought several pairs for myself including sunglasses as well as reading glasses after the staff performed a free eye test. Overall I must say, the service was impressive from all the staff and glasses were stylish great quality and amazing value. We also met Patrick the owner who really looked after us fitting each pair carefully and gave us a special delicious treat to enjoy before we left!

    Avoid. Unprofessional/ non technical. Does not answer shop phone nor email. Staff give different prices/comments. No professional qualifications displayed. Attitude is more akin car sales than that of a medical professional. I bought from Whoosh who sell the full Essilor lens range, give one year guarantee, and whose staff are modern, technically competent and efficient. Their pricing is very competitive. Owndays in Kl or OWE in Penang are modern and competent at a very reasonable price. Avoid old shops.

    Amazing Service! I've been purchasing glasses for over 30 years. And I can honestly say that this was my best experience buying glasses. The vision first team is professional, genuine and caring. They will take the time to make sure that your glass look and fit perfectly.
