Event description
Looking for things to do in Singapore? Bring your love ones to experience the whole process of making spectacles in Singapore!

About this Event

Brought to you by NTUC U Live:

Have you made your own spectacles? Instead of asking questions about "How to find a suitable spectacle frame?", why not DIY your own spectacles! Join us this March 2021 as we open our lens manufacturing factory and allow you to walk through the whole process of how we make the lens and spectacles for all the eyewear retailers in Singapore!

In fact, you can even experience the whole process from filtering out the lens of your eye power to cutting the lens to fit in the frame that you choose.

You would also gain insights into optical trade terminology such as hi-index lenses, computer lenses, blue light etc.

The walking tour cum workshop will cover:

  • Selection of the lenses
  • Picking of lenses from the store house (tour of the lens storehouse
  • Checking the lens power and optical centre
  • Programming in PD and scanning of eye shape
  • Glazing of the optical lenses
  • Touch up of the lenses before fitting
  • Fitting of lenses to the frame
  • QC check on the workmanship
  • Cleaning of the frame and lenses

Of course, during the walk around the factory, you would also have all the common questions answered:

  • how to take care of spectacles
  • how should spectacles fit
  • does wearing spectacles improve eyesight and many more...

And enjoy a free eye examination and also refreshment at the end of this facility tour.

Contact NTUC U Live for the Free Tickets for this DIY your own glasses workshop.
