I went to shop #215 which had a really wide selection (for both genders). The shopkeepers don't speak any English but are very friendly and helpful; we managed just fine with Google translate. I wanted to repair my main frames that had become broken during...More

The Glasses City building is further south than trip advisor says. It's a great option for simple prescription glasses. I was quoted $65 a pair for four with 7 diopter lenses, before negotiations. I had the feeling that the bottom dollar price might have gone...More

The selection is, to say the least, overwhelming! The numerous stores offer a mind boggling selection of frames at very good prices (famous brands remain expensive) I got a super “no-name” frame at a very good price. It included having my eyes professionally tested and...More

We live in Beijing and after trying several shops in the glasses city, 222 is our favorite. It is run by a couple, they are polite and give a fair price, no need to negotiate further. They also have more choices than the shop 218....More

I always knew the eye glass industry in Canada was an over priced scam but this experience has confirmed it. Frames and prescription lenses for no more than $60 Canadian per pair. Amazing selection. Finally glasses priced right. Instead of the standard $250-$400 / pair...More

The selection and price compared to U.K. is worth the visit. I visited 2 shops, getting varifocals and sunglasses at each. The varifocals are fine. At 10% of U.K. prices a fun way to try a different style or colour. However, in one shop I...More
