About Photochromex Our Story


Our idea is simple; a good pair of sunglasses is too expensive, especially with prescription lenses. As young working adults driving quite often on the road during the day, we found it very troublesome switching glasses when the sky turns cloudy or during the golden hour of sunset. So we started to look for a pair of sunglasses which is able to solve this issue of adapting to any light changing condition during the day. Unfortunately, the price of this product is at least RM 800 – RM 1000 due to its lens technology – Light Adaptive Sunglass.

We started PhotochromeX as a solution and at the same time provide options for people with myopia that require prescription lenses in their sunglasses. We started sourcing from many local sunglass manufacturers but most of them are reluctant to supply due to the very high costing for such technology. At last, we found a humble small factory in Penang that has the expertise to apply this type of light adaptive lens technology at an affordable cost.

We believe that having a good pair of sunglasses means investing on good quality optical lenses in it. Furthermore, buying sunglasses should be easy and fun. It should leave you happy and good-looking, without burning a hole in your pocket.

We also believe that everyone has the right to see and protect their eyes from harmful sunlight.

Our company operates on a 100% e-commerce, pre-order only model for prescription lenses. This has allowed us to remove the middlemen and unnecessary inventory costs, thus letting us bring better value and fair prices to our customers.
