Since their conception in the 1200s, eyeglasses have surpassed their initial purpose of simply correcting vision. Now, glasses not only elevate the wearer’s aesthetic, but also make a statement about who you are.  

This summer, U-Insight visited Foptics, an up-and-coming optics shop which boasts fashionable yet affordable frames, as we got ready to kickstart the semester with a brand-new look! 

Just a 3-minute walk from Commonwealth MRT and nestled quietly within an unassuming industrial building, the Foptics shop gives you options for every occasion. With hundreds of pairs to choose from, you’ll surely be able to find a suitable pair of glasses for any look. Whether you’re going for a casual style or a sharp look for internships, don’t miss out on Foptics to “zhng” up your look!  

Most of Foptic’s frames – which come along with lens – are priced affordably at $35.90, so you don’t have to worry about burning a hole in your pocket just to look good. Its premium frames cost an additional $20, which still falls within the reasonable range.

Metal frames are perfect for those who want to give off a sharper look – especially when you’re interning in the corporate world. Check out Cura or Mandy ($49.90), comfortable and lightweight glasses available in various shades like black, rose gold, and silver.  

Want to step out of your comfort zone? If you’re feeling adventurous, try out Foptics’ cateye series. While such styles are only typically available in high-end stores, we’re happy to find that Foptics provides them at a reasonable price from $29.90
