Eyeglasses Market Beijing

Mingjing Yuan Eyeglasses Market

Near Panjiayaun market on the third ring road is a shopping haven for those needing a new pair of specs. Once you get there, you will find it hard to stop at just one pair! If you wear glasses, you will get some real bargains here.

Recently I paid 220rmb for perscription glasses, including testing. There are prescription or non-prescription sunglasses. There are also contact lenses. Be prepared to bargain for your frames when ordering your new eye wear. If you have forgotten your prescription, they will test your eyes for you, before making up your order.

Taking only 30 minutes to an hour to complete your order this is truly the way to shop for eyeglasses. If you have any problems simply take the glasses back and they will sort out the problems if you show a little patience. Some of the eye-testing people speak English. If all else fails call your Chinese friend or hotel concierge, explain your problem and they will translate for you.
