I'm in the Philippines, but Thailand is the same I'm pretty sure. Go to any good eyeglasses store in the mall, most have a trained optician and all of the testing gear on site. That's how they sell glasses and frames. I just got new glasses last week. No charge for the examination, only for lens and frames. Ready in 5 working days. Picked them up today - perfect.

Haven't been to an opticians in Pattaya but went to Charoen Optical in Udon and they were okay. As Davis says, most of the shops have a trained optician nowadays.

Only thing is that, unlike the UK, they do not do a test for Glaucoma. If you want this then go to the hospital and have your eyes tested and then give the results to one of the opticians to have the glasses made.

I imagine there is a Pattaya Opticians ...yep there is...

HOME - Pattaya Optical

Anyone been there?

^Good point re glaucoma. At a certain age, I guess you should get that checked periodically.

I used Top Charoen on South Pattaya Road when my arms couldn't stretch any further and reading became almost impossible. They were great, and had a deal on at the time (as they often do) of 2 sets of glasses for the price of one. Very happy with the final result and would gladly use them again when or if stronger lenses are needed.

This is very useful for people who are born with two sets of ears.

For a complete comprehensive eye test incl the test for glaucoma, visit:
1. St Peters Eye Hospital halfway down the west side of the Super towards Chotana Intersection, and across from Lanna Hospital.

2. McCormick Hospital's new eye care department.
See Ya
