Coming from a family in optometry business for generations in Guangzhou, Mr. Lau saw the potential in Mong Kok and took the risk to open Brighter Optical Co. when he migrate to Hong Kong.

Over the years Brighter Optical has achieved many milestones.

  • We are the first company to guarantee 30-minute pick up of prescription optical.
  • In 1987 we opened up our second store in Sam Shui Po with the intent to expand our vision of “a brighter tomorrow” to many more communities.
  • In 2000, an Optometry clinic opened in Mong Kok, which is an industry first to have an optical store and optometry clinic under the same roof. This provides seamless synergy for customers to enjoy a full eye health exam ( a comprehensive eye exam that looks at both your eye sight and health) beyond a basic refraction check.
  • Today, optometry is undergoing major changes in patients’ demands for medical care and a host of cutting-edge advancements in eye care technology, more skilled professionals are new need to address patients’ needs.
