THE ZEISS Vision Centre in Penang brings a brand new shopping experience for consumers seeking eyeglasses that truly fit their needs.
The new centre draws on ZEISS’ pioneering tradition and expertise of over 160 years in the optical industry to provide accurate, convenient and personalised optometry services.
As the inventor of modern eyeglass lenses over a century ago, ZEISS stands for quality and cutting-age technology. This is evident with the centre’s futuristic design.
Built in accordance with ZEISS’ German Red Dot Design Award global standards, it uses pure white tones with clean lines to provide a welcoming environment.
The centre is owned and operated by Chan May May Optometrist Sdn Bhd that has been in business for 25 years.
Owner Chan May May said they invested a lot in state-of-the-art equipment.
“Everyone’s eyes are as unique as their fingerprints. Here, consumers will be able to obtain precise and customised solutions.
“We have a comprehensive eight-step consultation process which we call the ZEISS Vision Analysis.
“This comprises visual needs analysis, precision eye-mapping, eye health check, visual performance analysis, frame selection, lens and frame fit measurement, customised lens solutions and glass collection, ” she explained.
The centre is equipped with the ZEISS i.ProfilerPlus, a compact 4-in-1 system with an ocular wavefront aberrometer, autorefractometer, corneal topographer and keratometer that provide a comprehensive visual profile.
This virtual mapping of each eye gives a detailed overview of one’s visual performance and eye condition.
Together with the machine’s integrated i.Scription technology, it allows for the creation of prescription lenses that improve vision.
The centre also has a ZEISS VisuFit1000 machine which is only available in the northern region. Its innovative new centration system is able to create a precise 180-degree view of the consumer’s face using nine cameras and 45 million points.
“This unique 3D measurement data for each individual’s head, eye, pupil and cornea allows us to determine the most suitable frames to be used to achieve optimal eyeglass performance, ” Chan said.
To help detect the early subtle signs of eye disease is the centre’s ZEISS Clarus 500 machine.
With an ultra-wide retinal camera, it is able to capture a 200-degree view of the retina without the need for pupil-dilating drugs that usually leave a consumer unable to drive for the remainder of the day.
The high-resolution images generated capture details as small as seven microns, which help diagnose macular and optic disc abnormalities such as age-related macular degeneration or retinal detachment.
The centre also offers a vast selection of ZEISS innovative lenses from its Smartlife, DriveSafe and Blueguard ranges as well as spectacle frames, soft and hard contact lenses and contact lens solutions.
“We have loyal customers all over Penang and decided to expand to this strategic location to be closer to those on the south of the island and also the mainland.
“Many were concerned when they were unable to travel across districts to our main outlet in Pulau Tikus during the recent MCO, ” Chan added.
To mark the grand opening today, the centre is having a promotion which is valid until April 30.
With every purchase of ZEISS Smartlife lenses, one can enjoy a comprehensive eye examination, complimentary branded frame, ZEISS Antivirus lens coating upgrades and up to six months’ supply of contact lenses in a package worth RM600.
The ZEISS Vision Centre Penang is located at 18 Persiaran Bayan Indah (four doors away from HSBC Bank and near Queensbay Mall).
