Interview with Ryan Ho of Malaya Optical

Since my eye examination and spectacle fitting at Malaya Optical was so different from my past experiences with other options, I decided ask Ryan Ho to tell me more about Malaya Optical personally and how they managed to get the Brand Bacalaureate. This was what Ryan Ho told me about Malaya Optical.

At Malaya Optical, they differentiate themselves “by not just by what they do, but how they do it, according to Ryan Ho CEO of Malaya Optical.

Ryan said that “Malaya Optical does more than just eye wear solutions, Malaya Optical is about a continuous process that includes comprehensive and highly personalize after-sales service cycle that keeps the client satisfied and seeing clearly”.

After learning a bit more about them. I found out that they have been the Trusted and Reliable Optometrist Practice Since 1957. Since Ryan's Grandfather's time.

I was also told that they have qualified Professional Optometrists in all their practices throughout Klang Valley : Damansara Uptown in Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya SS15, Jusco Setia Wangsa in Ampang, China Town in Kuala Lumpur and South Gate Plaza in Kuala Lumpur. According to Ryan “Malaya Optical now has evolved to be the Eye Experience Boutique and living by the motto – ‘Visibility is Life’ “. It also underlines the brand vision of Malaya Optical to be the premier provider of primary eye care solutions and professional consultancy services for eye wear styling.

From its humble start, Malaya Optical now offers a comprehensive range of eye care services by their qualified Optometrist in Petaling Jaya through a host of state of the art instrument for vision screening. Their Optometrist are qualified to screen for Glaucoma , Cataract and Diabetic Retinopathy. Additionally, majority of their clients are 35years and above and have presbyopia (reading problems). They are also experts in fitting Progressive Lenses(Multifocal Lenses). Multifocal Lenses are by Hoya, Zeiss, Essilor or Rodenstock.

When I was doing my multifocal, they used the RVT Terminal from Carl Zeiss to for 5 additional points on the face to reduce the significant levels of distortion arising from the Multifocal Lens distortion, thus providing a more natural and comfortable experience.

Of course according to Ryan, they also have basic prescription lenses such as Prescription lenses such Transition, UV Protection, Polycarbonate, Polarized and etc. When you need a pair of Single Vision Lenses or Bifocal or even Progressive Lenses, Malaya Optical are the experts. Their Optometrist also treats for Myopia ( Short-sighted ), Hyperopia (Long sighted), and Presbyopia (Reading Problems).

When I ask Ryan about Children, he mention that a key part of the business is the brand’s specialization in children’s eye care. This is something close to the hearts of its founders, who believe that children should receive proper eye care for them to have a bright future. At Malaya Optical, a substantial portion of the business comes from pediatric consultancies in the Klang Valley. They use the latest lenses from Zeiss called the MyoVision Lenses to solve the root cause of myopia. He was very excited about the recent studies by Carl Zeiss Vision have demonstrated a link between the elongation of the eye and myopia progression. Genetic factors do play a significant role, and East Asian children are most likely affected by this visual impairment. ZEISS is introducing the innovative MyoVision™ lenses – the most effective way to retard myopia.

Younger clients are also going to their practice in Damansara Uptown, Petaling Jaya for contact lenses Fitting and Assessment as they are able to advice and manage clients with dry eyes symptoms, discomfort of contact lenses and proper fitting of contact lenses.
