Hi-tech Royal Optic

C OMPUTERIZED eye examination equipment employed by Royal Optic is the first of

its kind in the country able to examine defective vision said senior optometrist

Dr Jerry Ramos. He was speaking after the firm opened its second shop last month

equipped with $30,000 state of the art computer technology.

Dr Ramos

said: "We serve between 10 and 20 customers per day, our service is more

expensive than other optical shops in Phnom Penh, but the difference is our shop

is equipped with high-tech machines and high quality legitimate

products."

The optician, who has been working for Royal Optic for seven

months, added: "The Essilor Art 50 and Tria Lens machines use the latest

technology to effectively spot the cause of impaired vision and to accurately

calculate the degree of eye error.

"The basic charges for having your

eyes tested and glasses made up vary between $40-$300 depending on the degree of

eye error and the quality of the frame used to make the glasses."

Dr

Ramos said Essilor is a worldwide optical company which set up Royal Optic in

Phnom Penh to cure eye problems and sell a range of optical products including

corrective vision glasses, sunglasses and about 20 different kinds of frames

imported from France, Australia, Japan and Italy.

Royal Optic is run and

owned by Men Sokha and his French partner Claude Jaeck.

They invested

$50,000 buying the equipment for their first shop which employs five people

situated on the corner of Streets 136 and 15.

They spent another $30,000

on equipment for a new shop which opened in May this year on Preah Monivong

Blvd, Number 220, the shop employs two people.
