Can anyone recommend a good shop in Ho Chi Minh city to have prescription glasses made?

Hello Brent H

Are you taking your optical prescription with you? Which you should.

Because if so, then just about any optical shop will do this for you.

Best regards. Ian/Angkorlad

I recommend Hoang Thanh Optical,125 Bui Vien St, District 1.

Last October, Mr Hoang made a pair of hi-index glasses for me.

Mr Hoang is from Vung Tau and previously served in the ARVN.

Brent, they are amazing. They have like a little grinder and grind your prescription on the footpath. Perfect glasses. Language may be a problem, but a sense of humour and respect works well. There are big shops that are air conditioned or you can help people in the smaller shops. My frames are still popping along three years on and were really cheap.
