Hirocon trains its staff to be experts in the field of contact lens, and educates consumers on the importance of professional detailed eye checks prior to any contact lens usage.

Highest Quality and Commitment to Safety

Hirocon is dedicated to offering comprehensive eye health care, with detailed eye examinations that go far beyond offering customers with the clearest vision possible. Its team of UK-graduated optometrists, some with over 15 years of experience in all types of eye-related issues, specialises in the diagnosis and management of ocular diseases and visual disorders, such as dry eye syndrome, diabetic retinopathy, conjunctivitis, among others.

The highly trained optometrists will carefully evaluate various key components of the function and health of the eyes, including external and internal ocular health, current vision and best- corrected vision. Hirocon also specialises in paediatric vision care for children under the age of seven years old.

Comprehensive Clinical Eye Test

When you step into the eye test room at the Hirocon store, you will be brought through a series of eye checks. Firstly, a computerised autorefractor estimates the prescription of your glasses. Next, you will find that the traditional trial lens set has been replaced by a phropter, which technology can simulate a vision chart that is 6-metres away, removing the need to do this prescription check in a large room. The phropter is also used to check eye muscle balance, and ensures greater accuracy and efficiency in eye tests.

A slit lamp is then necessary to determine contact lens suitability by testing for cornea diseases, and a Volk lens or ophthalmoscope will be used to check the retina. After which, the optometrist will proceed to select several contact lenses for you to try, and from there, determine the contact lens that are most suitable for you. Hirocon also specialises in fitting for hard lenses.

Hirocon is located at 277 Orchard Road, #B2-28, Orchardgateway Singapore 238858.
