Japanese Eyewear Brand OWNDAYS Now In Manila!
Largest optical chain from Japan Own Days launched another store at the Estancia Mall earlier. I've seen some of their branches around the Metro (Glorietta, Landmark, and Festival Mall), and finally got to know more about the brand during the event.
In attendance were OWNDAYS CEO Mr. Shuji Tanaka and Managing Director of Sungears Sales Inc. Mr. Vohne Yao:
“We have hundreds of styles, but function is always at the heart of every pair,” shares Yao. “We have 20 brands under OWNDAYS, and each brand has its distinct characteristic.”
I've been wearing prescription eyeglasses since I was in Grade 5 (near-sighted), so I am always on the look out for a pair that is durable. It wouldn't hurt if it's also stylish enough to wear even outside the house, and friendly to the pocket.
But more than these criteria, OWNDAYS adds more reasons to why they are game-changers in optical stores in the country. Let me count the ways:
1) New Experience: Some stores place their eyewear inside glass displays so it's dyahe to keep on asking if you can try them, but with OWNDAYS, you can conveniently touch and try the pairs with their wide open store concept design. Get ready coz they also have 1500 styles to choose from!
2) Simple, All-In-One Pricing System: OWNDAYS makes the price system simple and easy to understand - set prices include everything you need (frame + 1.60 to 1.67 high index aspheric/ultra thin lenses). Prices range from PHP 2,990 to PHP 6,990 and NO ADDITIONAL FEE for the aspheric/ultra thin lens regardless of the high grade!!!
3) Quick. Your time is important to OWNDAYS. Their practical knowledge, reliable skills and latest technology in retail optical lens edging enable them to complete your pair in as early as 20 MINUTES UPON PAYMENT – except for special order lenses. OWNDAYS uses Nidek’s LE-1200, top-notch equipment from Japan, which offers faster grinding capabilities and results to a shorter cycle time and a high luster finish.
Aside from offering more styles and higher quality, OWNDAYS provides in-store eye exams facilitated by their PRC Licensed Optometrists. They are also able to increase efficiency and improve patient care through their latest technology in electronic refraction.
