A Passion for Vision, Hi-End Eyeglasses for a Better Life
Fltr: Conventional progressive lenses, Premium progressive lenses and Hi-End progressive lenses
After this Eureka moment Master Bobi dedicated all his spare time to find out more by spending 16 hours a day studying progressive lenses. "I was lucky that I already had lots of customers, there are a lot of people for me to practice on," he says laughing. "I was able to focus on all the aspects of the process: the concept, the design, the technology and I found out that what worked for some people may not work for others." "It can be quite a complicated procedure as there are so many different variables to consider, for a start there are 300 different types of lenses! The detailed adjustment to the lenses and the frames all make a vital difference." Aside from the hands on testing, Bobi also spent a lot of time talking to other experts in this field and questioning many professor from manufacturers of progressive lenses who were based in Japan, Germany and worldwide to find out more and to ensure that his clients received the very best level of service and satisfaction. "The thing was the more questions I started to ask the fewer answers people could give me. In the end, they began to say Bobi you know more about this than us, so they now learn from me and ask me the questions!"

In fact, Master Bobi now regularly holds seminars and training sessions, both in Bangkok and overseas, to train other progressive lens specialists on his techniques and practices. This initially may seem strange, after all, many would suggest that it would be better for his business to keep these techniques and practices to themselves, but Bobi disagrees. "I love my students so why keep this system a secret? There are 3 billions people who have problems with their eyesight and we now know how to give them their vision back. I am only one person and no matter how hard I work I would not be able to handle more than a million people, I can't do it alone! It's much better that I share my knowledge, tell them everything and share the happiness." He has already trained around a thousand other progressive lens specialists and hopes to reach out to more through his website www.apcthai.com (Advance Progressive Addition Lenses Club), which features downloads and video tutorials. "At the end of the day I am proud that I am making a difference and particularly proud that I am a Thai person who has reached this position."
