If you visited Orchard Central recently, did you noticed the Gorilla poster with the name “Zoff” on it? Why, you ask? Did the team from Planet of the Apes renamed their movie to Zoff?
No, they didn’t. And that’s not a movie poster; the spectacles-donning Gorilla is trying to tell you the leading Japanese eye-wear chain, Zoff Flagship Store, has arrived at Orchard Central, Level B1!
What is Zoff?
They are a Japanese eye-wear maker that encourages customers to “Enjoy Your Glasses”! Advocating that glasses should not be a mere necessity, but a fashion accessory to suit your mood for the day. Zoff provides quality fashion eye-wear fast, at inexpensive prices. While you are at it, Zoff also wants you to ‘Enjoy Shopping For The Glasses’! As such, the stores are quirky and colorful with a fun layout. Most importantly, they will never lock their frames behind glass cases, making it easy for you to pick up a pair and start trying!
Zoff Flagship Store in Singapore @ Orchard Central
Calling itself ‘The Supermarket for Glasses’, Zoff Flagship Store @ Orchard Central is even designed to resemble a supermarket. And the reason is simple- like other super-marts, Zoff wants to offer the freshest products at the best value for everyone fast!
To keep things fresh and innovative, Zoff will bring in new frames every two weeks to add to their wide selection of 1,200 frames in stores.
Best Value Eye-wear
At Zoff, you don’t have to ask the price of every pair of eye-wear that interest you. Instead, all prices are indicated clearly so that you can choose the right pair according to your needs and budget. Zoff eye-wear are priced attractively to include standard prescription lens*. Price starts from S$98 Nett. Other price tiers include S$138, S$178, S$228, S$288.
*High/Ultra-High Index Aspheric (1.67/1.74), Tinted Lens, Super Hard Coat Lens and PC Lens (cuts out blue light from computers, smart phones and reduces glare that causes eye fatigue) are subjected to additional cost.
Here, you do not have to wait days just to collect your glasses! No matter whether you need a pair of glasses urgently or simply want a new pair now, no sweat! Zoff can have your glasses ready in 30 minutes after payment (time excludes frame selection and eye test)!

Zoff Super Light
Available in Regular, Pattern and Slim variations, each Zoff Super Light is lightweight (lightest at 10.5g excluding lens) and comfortable.
Zoff meets Lisa Larson®
This series features creations by the world renowned Swedish ceramic designer, Lisa Larson. As this is the first-ever collaboration Lisa has with a glasses maker, I was very excited about the range. Do I look good in them? Unfortunately, I don’t think so.
Zoff Premium are ultra lightweight (3.6g excluding lens) minimal frames that are made in Japan with SABAE technology and are the most expensive frames (S$288 Nett) at Zoff Flagship Store Singapore. I tried one on and literally didn’t feel it on! I also love that they do not have those annoying nose pads that will leave a red mark on your nose after a few hours of wearing.
Zoff believes that even those who don’t need glasses should enjoy the varied looks glasses have to offer. With Zoff Accessories, bring some fun and color to accessorize your eyes like makeup and spice up your look! I tried one pair (on the recommendation of their friendly staff Zax) and loved it! So, this was the pair I brought home!
All Zoff Sunglasses comes with lens that provide 99.99% protection from UV radiation.
Zoff Kids are designed to be safe for kids. Children below 15 can also change their lens for free (within one year of purchase) in case of any prescription change.
With so many fun choices, are you ready to shop for your eye-wear accessory at Zoff yet?
With a super-mart concept, and friendly service crew at Zoff Flagship Store, I found my perfect pair of trendy glasses that looks pretty on me.
