Hong Kong

prescription glasses, china visa

Any recommendations on where to buy prescription glasses in Hong Kong or Shenzhen? We will be traveling to both cities in a week.

Is it better to get visa at border or in Hong Kong. The Chinese National Day holiday in on Oct. 10.

Thanks, Ron

Your glasses will be cheaper in Shenzhen and for the same product - Hong Kong opticians outsource production to the mainland these days. If you're not fluent in Chinese you will find the huge emporium by the border crossing in Luohu (Lo Wu on the HK side) convenient. There are many opticians here and they speak good English. I've had glasses made by a couple of these over the years and have no complaints.
