First Eyewear Centre
First Eyewear Centre’s owner and director, Ms Careen Low, had worked with her father Mr Alan Low at his first optical practice which was established in 1975 in Katong Shopping Centre. In 1992, Careen founded her own optical practice First Eyewear Centre in Siglap Shopping Centre. In 2015, First Eyewear Centre relocated to a 2700-square-foot practice and became a concept store at 713 East Coast Road.
First Eyewear Centre is patient-centred. It is fully equipped with the latest eye diagnostic tools to detect common eye diseases like diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and cataract. The centre can perform comprehensive eye examination including optical coherence tomography, digital retinal photography, noncontact tonometry and digital slit-lamp photography. It can also perform A-scan biometry for paediatric orthokeratology ( Ortho-K ), a reversible alternative for myopic (shortsightedness) eyes by using FDA approved rigid gas permeable contact lenses at night only.
Vision test or eye refraction is an important part of an eye care examination. Your optometrist will determine if there is change in vision due to short-sightedness, long-sightedness or “Lao Hua”, or any underlying eye problem.
