Eye glasses are insanely cheap in Korea, which is why I feel they are one of the "Must Buy" things in Korea. I bought a few pairs of prescription eyeglasses and sunnies during my last two trips to Seoul.
ALO, is one of the optical store that offering great design with reasonable price in Korea. You can get direct discount on your bill instead of doing tax refund after the purchase. This actually saves me a lot of time as I don't like to do tax refund at the airport. They have twenty branches in Korea conveniently located at those tourist's spots such as Myeong Dong, Gangnam, Dong Dae Mun and Garosugil. I like to go to the one located in Myeong Dong as they always have someone who can speak mandarin or english for me.
Another good experience was the efficiency of their prescription eye glasses to be ready for collection in less than an hour. You can simply spend your time to shop in Myeong Dong street or collect the specs after your dinner.
Simple and Trendy designs
Look at the miniature glasses, I really wanna get that but it's too pricy
The cheapest frame that I've found in the store is selling at 29k Korean won.
