Improving People’s Life Through Optometry
Our mission is to help as many people as possible, to experience good and comfortable vision. We also work to prevent preventable blindness from happening. We will do our absolute best to ensure that every one of our clients receives the best eye care services and is able to see comfortably, look great and feel confident with the product & solutions that are tailored to suit their needs. Like the Japanese Shokunin spirit, we take pride of what we do. We do it carefully, beautifully, and to our utmost best of our abilities. Because this is our craft.
The name Visiokraft came from the inspiration of the word ‘vision’ and ‘craft’. As optometrists, providing good vision care services are the core of our job, therefore you could say that ‘vision’ is our ‘craft’.
As glasses wearers ourselves, we totally understand the pains of having to wear a poorly fitted and uncomfortable pair of glasses. This is also the reason why we vet through all the products and ensure they are of good quality and are comfortable wear. Besides, we are also real suckers for beautifully crafted glasses.
We see glasses as not just a tool to help people see better, but also a piece of accessory that helps bring out the inner personality of the wearer. It can help portray a certain outlook that the wearer wants to communicate to the world. A pair of well-selected glasses can help a person feel more confident by elevating their looks and bringing out the “real you” within them. .
We really enjoy helping people see better, but the greatest joy comes from helping them look and feel more confident about themselves.
This is what drives us!
We refer our clients for further management when the required and always give honest recommendations based on client’s needs.
We always treat our patients equally no matter their status, race, gender, or wealth and offer same and equal services to everyone.
We continuously educate ourselves as well as the public to spread awareness and to prevent preventable blindness in our community.
