    Mat buddy, listen. Cheap, good and honest are seldom found in one go. It is an extremely rare occurrence! hahahahaha

    I think the prices of spec had come down a lot in recent times.

    Check places like Focus Point

    Why price of specs comes down? competition from laser? My uncle in Singapore has optician shops, very good margins.

    Please try and let me know . For starters, Kuma's recommendation sounds solid.

    All I know you buy one and get another free in recent years.

    If they do it in Perth, I dun see why it's not available in Boleh where competition is even more tough.

    It is significantly cheaper in Malacca, 30% at least ..

    If you know the shop owner, it can be 40-50% cheaper than USJ.

    Next time, when you visit Malacca , try to find out..
