The hype over Korean trends probably won’t die down anytime soon, and you know what they say—if you can’t beat them, join them.

But if you don’t have the time yet to catch up with the K-dramas everyone’s raving about, or you’re simply happily infected with the hallyu fever, you can keep up by accessorizing the Korean way. Like sporting a pair of cute and fully functional Korean-concept glasses!

Starfinder Optical offers chic, stylish, and practical eyewear that’s perfect for your K-wave loving heart. Aside from the fact that their urban frames are from Korea, here are three more reasons why you should get your next street fashion eyewear from Starfinder Optical:

3. Glasses start at an affordable price of P500

Starfinder’s frames are affordable for anyone—whether you’re a working adult, or a student, you can get stylish frames starting at a mere ₱500, to a slightly-more-expensive-but-still-economical ₱5,000. For durable frames made in Korea, those are some pretty great deals.

They’re incredibly practical and functional, too. Starfinder takes pride in its lightweight frames that make you feel as though you aren’t wearing any glasses at all, still without losing its visual quality!

And here’s a great feature: their lenses are equally as amazing as their frames. They offer Blucut lenses that block 99.9% of blue light, a harmful high-energy emitted by phones, laptops, and other gadgets. No more eye strain for you!

2. There are so many styles to choose from!

What kind of frames are you looking for? The classy, modern, thin-framed specs that are super popular these days? Or maybe something unique and practical, like totally flexible frames that won’t snap when you accidentally sit on them? Starfinder offers you all of these and more! And if you’re one of those people who easily get tired of their usual frames, Starfinder has customizable frames available as well—mix and match frame fronts with different temples for a unique look every time!

1. They have upcoming promos and exciting news!

Starfunder Optical is having their 10th anniversary sale this upcoming September 15 to 24—up to 50% off on select items! This is an opportunity you shouldn’t miss.

If you’re interested in getting contact lenses, Starfinder’s gorgeous colored (grade-less) lenses from Pro Trend are on an introductory promo of just ₱299, and they already last for six months!

They’re opening two new branches this year—in Ayala 30th Mall this October, and in Vertis Mall in November/December.

BONUS: You’ll love going to their stores!

The Starfinder stores have a super trendy and chic interior design that’s so unlike the typical clinical vibes from your usual optical stores, just like the items they offer. Feel free to take a couple of IG-worthy photos while waiting for your specs. You can get your glasses (whether or not they’re new or from the store) cleaned with their ultrasonic cleaner. And most importantly, where else can you get free candy and authentic Korean coffee while walking around and choosing from hundreds of unique eyewear?
