Optical Lenses

Choose from our extensive range of lenses for your ideal match.

Choosing frames you love is only part of creating the perfect pair of glasses for you. There is an increasingly impressive choice of optical lenses to go in them, which can transform both the look of your glasses and what they can do for your visual comfort. Deciding what lenses are best for you often feels daunting which is why we recommend letting our experienced dispensing optician advise you. It’s our job to focus on assisting you to choose both the perfect frames and the best lenses that combine to create glasses you’ll love to wear.

Have you heard horror stories about varifocals from friends or family who just couldn’t get on with them?
In our experience, this is often a result of other opticians prescribing lenses without properly understanding their patient and what they need. Your lifestyle and daily activities need to be considered, and we will tailor our advice based upon everything you tell us. Whilst varifocals may take some adjusting to, we have a great track record of helping customers where other opticians have failed before us.
If you have a very strong or complex prescription you can avoid having thick, heavy glasses by getting your prescription made up as a high-index lens. High-index lenses are specially engineered lenses that offer precision sight correction in a much thinner, lighter lens. This makes your glasses more comfortable to wear.

These days varifocals often work best when paired with additional pairs of glasses. Perhaps an office pair for the hours spent on the computer. These are designed for looking at something nearby, whether that’s as a document on your desk or a computer screen in the middle distance. So, if you find yourself squinting over your glasses to use your PC or sitting a long way back from your screen, it’s well worth talking to us about this option.

You can also choose from a range of lens coatings that offer different benefits. We generally include coatings that provide advanced protection and optimal comfort as standard. These protect you against reflections, scratches and smudges. In addition, they are water and dust repellent.

We can also offer coatings to protect against headlight glare at night, a blue light filter for more relaxing screen time, and an anti-fog coating if you find your glasses misting all the time.

Adding a tint to your glasses can transform them into sunglasses, giving your eyes valuable protection from damaging UV light. We have a wide range of sunglasses and tinted and polarised lens options available in a wide variety of colours, or why not try Transitions lenses which adapt to light conditions and are available in a wide range of colours. Whatever you might need, our team can explain your options and help you choose the best solution.
