About Us


At Mee Mee, we come to work every day because we want to deliver expert eye care to our customers. We care about your eye health, and don’t want to just sell you another pair of glasses or contact lenses.

Through the history of our business, since 1965, we have kept ourselves relevant with state-of-the-art optometric equipment as well as upholding a standard of excellence among our team of optometrists and opticians.

Our vision is a simple one. We want to build a company of eye health specialists that are able to deliver the correct prescription for your eyes and help you maintain good vision throughout your life.

Our History
1965 - 1978

Around the age of eighteen, Chong Mee Liang, the late founder of Mee Mee Optics, took an optometry apprenticeship from the Oriental Optical Company situated at North Bridge Road.

Back in the 60s, Singapore did not possess a formal training structure for optometry. It relied heavily on informal apprenticeships – often at the request of a kin – which is why the optometry profession in Singapore has a good number from the Hakka Chinese community. In 1965, the year of Singapore’s independence, Chong Mee Liang and his siblings – after years of optometric expertise – opened an optical shophouse at Beauty World Town, a well-received addition to Beauty World Park – which was converted from an amusement park.

Beauty World Town had an assortment of vendors that sold everything from groceries to cosmetics, shoes and eyewear.

The optical eyewear shop was named “Mee Mee Optics” or美美眼鏡店 (translated loosely to “Beautiful Eye-wear Shop”) located at 101 Upper Bukit Timah Rd, just outside where Beauty World Plaza currently stands at Bukit Timah. During that time, Chong Mee Liang fabricated prescription lenses at his own optical workshop, using semi-finished blanks, and spent long hours crafting the lens into the frame by hand. It was hard work but he took great pride in providing better vision to his customers.

1978 - 2000

During the late 70s, Beauty World Town suffered a series of fires that ultimately devastated the entire complex, and was forced to shut down after a huge fire destroyed twenty vacant shophouses.

Mee Mee moved away from the defunct Beauty World Town, and settled in Bukit Timah Plaza, one of the first shopping centers in Singapore, which opened in 1978.

In July 1982, Mee Mee adopted the Nikon Auto Refractor – a cutting edge new optical technology in the early eighties – seeking to increase its technical optometric proficiency and professionalism for its customers.

Business at Bukit Timah Plaza continued to grow and prosper – under the stewardship and hard work of his sons, including the present owner of Mee Mee Optics, Mr David Chong Chai Wong.

2000 - Present

In 1999, we moved into our current location at Level One, #16B, refurbishing the flagship store with a new, modern interior with fully equipped, state of the art, examination rooms and a wide range of eyewear brands such as Prada, Cartier, Lindberg and Tiffany & Co.

In 2009, Mee Mee opened a second branch at 313@Somerset, extending its reach and services to Orchard Road, offering a range of fashionable luxury eye glasses and quality optical service. Located at Level 4, it has kept our continued standard of optometric excellence and capability, building a competent and qualified team of optometrist and opticians, led by David Chong, to provide quality eye care services in town.

In 2018, we decided to revamp our brand image to better position ourselves to meet the challenges and opportunities of a changing retail landscape. Our new logo, with its bright orange motif and accompanying tagline, projects our central mission to provide expert eye health services to Singaporeans.

Under David Chong, Mee Mee Optics has garnered the Promising SME 500 (2013) and has established itself as the premier eye care destination within Singapore with its professional optometric expertise and great customer care.

In addition, David has sat as President of the Singapore Optometric Association (SOA) and participated in a professional capacity in several advisory boards such as for Acuvue, Varilux and the School of Optometry (Singapore Polytechnic).


At Mee Mee, our team of optometrists and opticians are dedicated to providing the best eye health-care to you. Since our founding in 1965, we have continually sought to become the best primary eye care provider in Singapore, investing in clinical expertise and state-of-the-art equipment.

My father, Chong Mee Liang, joined the optometry trade and founded Mee Mee Optics from a simple shophouse along Bukit Timah Road. In the following years, we grew into a Singaporean company that is proud of its heritage and our continued dedication to clinical optometric excellence. We want to give you the assurance that your eyes are in good, reliable hands.
