Eighth Station/ Heyro Optical Company
Business/ Optical Products
Address/ Ground Floor, Tak Lee Building, 276 Queens Road West
The shop owner Mr. Chow comes from a family line of opticians. He has worked for optical companies and therefore is well acquainted with various roles in the trade, from selling glasses to glass cutting. When he founded the Heyro Optical Company in the 1980s, he also established his own optical workshop. This allowed him to take full charge of the production of glasses, from eye examination to the actual production. What remains of the 80s décor, and the vintage eyewear produced years ago, lends the shop an atmosphere of the old times.
As trends for eyewear have changed, the shop has offered more novel and diverse products to meet clients’ needs. Sunglasses, contact lenses, reading glasses, and transition lenses, are all available for clients to choose from.
