Patrick Ung - A must do in Penang.

After reading many positive recommendations on Trip Advisor for optician Patrick Ung

I decided to make an appointment for an eye test.The service we received from Patrick and his team at Vision First was amazing. Patrick collected my husband and I from our hotel in Batu Ferringhi and drove us to his shop in Georgetown.

We had our eyes tested and shown a great variety of stylish

frames and top quality lenses at low prices. One of Patrick's team then drove us to a shopping mall to shop for a few hours while our glasses were made. When they were ready Patrick collected us and drove us back to our hotel where he took time to carefully fit our glasses.

The following day Patrick delivered a birthday cake for my husband!

Meeting Partick was a highlight to our stay in Penang. His professional service is second to none.

If you wear glasses you must definitely visit Vision First in Prangin

Mall, Georgetown.

Hi taposh,

Vision First's (Patrick's) email address is opticalserv@gmail.com

They do check their emails and answer, though sometimes it can take a few days, particularly if the store is very busy, so do be patient.

There are many other things to do in Penang. Have a look at my reviews. Granted I live here now, so my perspectives are shifting towards the locals'.

While I cannot relate to some of the TA's excitement for the services recommended, I am always happy to see when needs are being met!

So I do hope you find something attractive about Penang some time!

Just a thought - maybe Holidays70s heading should have been "If you can't read this, you should see Patrick". Great advice and with so many endorsements I'll be going to see Patrick next visit and hopefully see him better afterwards. It's articles like this that make TA a go to site when travelling

Thanks to 'tripadvisor.com.au' we got to hear about Patrick's Vision First in Penang.

We visited Patrick last month during a holiday in Penang where my wife and I ordered new glasses (both reading & sunglasses).

Patrick and his staff were fantastic and his attention to detail wherein he made sure the glasses fitted correctly was admirable.

Overall, the service, product quality and price were much better than we have been able achieve here at home.

Thanks Patrick, Thivian & all the staff at Vision First for the great service as well as the lovely carrot cake we were given.

Regards,

David & Annette
