2. Eyeware IC! BERLIN
WHAT IS IC! BERLIN ?
Hand finished in Berlin piece by piece, ic! berlin produces their eyewear from a 0.5mm thin stainless steel sheet metal. And the best part of the eyewear has to be the patented hinge design which is uniquely by ic! berlin only. The hinge design successfully avoids the use of any screws, welds, or glue in the construction of their frames, and it allows the eyewear frame to be dismantled totally and being able to assemble it back again still. The combination of materials and unique techniques allows the frame to be light, flexible, and virtually unbreakable. So what you get is a pair of perfectly comfortable and durable eyewear frame!
- Now, what is so special about the patented hinge design?
Thanks to the hinge design, ic! berlin does not break. Even if you accidentally sit on them, step on them, drive over them, the worst that will happen is the temple pops off. No stress – in 2.4 seconds you can just clip back in like nothing ever happened.

Produced since 2003 in a tiny family factory in Fukui, Japan, Yellows Plus give a contemporary twist to classic shapes through the superior technical refinement of materials used. Designed and hand made in Japan, Yellows Plus uses the purist titanium and the best acetate material available in the industry. The Japanese are always the best at sourcing, milling, refining and working on titanium and acetate material.
Yellows Plus also claims that their eyewear is “more Asian than ever” (says its creator), suggesting assertiveness and an accentuation of the Japanese style. I would like to put it in this way,
Yellows Plus is now available in Optika Optometrist.
WHAT IS MYOPIA?
Myopia also known as shortsightedness, or in mandarin translated as 近视, is a condition whereby the light/image entering the eyes is wrongly focused, which leads to the elongation of the eyeball (increase in axial length), and causing blurriness in distant objects. Increasing or uncorrected myopia among children, will affect their academic performance and learning process in school. There is also a higher risk of eye diseases such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, and retina maculopathy if myopia progresses into high myopia (more than -6.00 diopter).
Based on a research done by our optometrist Mr Darren Toh with Prof. Dr Norhani Mohidin of National University of Malaysia (UKM), the estimated prevalence rate of shortsightedness among schoolchildren (with Chinese ethnicity) in Malaysia is at an concerning rate of 49.4% and will continue to rise in the next 5 years.
Myopia tends to be more prevalent in East Asian ethnicity especially Chinese ethnicity.
Myopia tends to run in families. Children with either one parent who is myopia are more likely to be develop myopia as well.
