The needs and wearing habits of contact lens wearers are as different as the wearers themselves.
Not only do we stock a wide range of different contact lenses, but we are also happy to give you responsible personal advice if you have yet to find the lens which is right for you.
We stock contact lenses from all the major manufacturers such as Acuvue, Alcon, Bausch and Lomb and Coopervision. We also have the facility to supply tailor made contact lenses for those who have difficulty finding lenses due to very high prescriptions.
The right lenses are crucial to good vision and comfortable spectacle wearing. They differ from eye to eye. We will give you comprehensive advice on choosing the best lenses for you and have a vast selection in stock.
When your eyesight requires a simple correction for reading or long distance, you will often only require a single vision lens. We can provide single vision lenses to suit a wide range of uses and prescriptions. All our single vision lenses are available with enhancements such as additional lens coatings and thinner materials.
Bifocal lenses have been available for many years and offer a basic, yet cost effective way of correcting your vision when you require spectacles for both distance and reading vision at the same time with a dedicated part of the lens for each. We are able to supply bifocals with a variety of lens treatments including tints, and surface coatings, as well as thinner options.
Varifocals represent the modern alternative to bifocals and offer a number of distinct advantages for those who demand the best and most flexible visual correction available. These lenses correct both near and distance vision in a similar way to bifocals but also offer full correction in a variety of intermediate or mid range distances, making them ideal for computer users, or anyone who finds themselves restricted when trying to view objects at or near to arms length. They also offer a much better cosmetic appearance when compared to bifocals, with no distracting line on the lens, they have a similar appearance to single vision lenses.
Varifocal lenses are the easiest solution to presbyopia (age-related long-sightedness), as they provide sharp focus in any field of vision, because they are individually matched to your eyes. Most people find them to be very convienient as they only need the one pair of glasses for all distances of viewing.
We stock the very best and latest designs from all the major manufacturers including Zeiss, Nikon and Essilor. We also offer the Wideview range of bespoke varifocal lenses which give the ultimate progressive experience for all distances and unsurpassed clarity for all frame types. They have much larger areas for viewing and the distortion areas on the edge of the lenses are non existent.
These lenses are designed with the computer user or office worker in mind. Intended for people who require the use of glasses for near vision work, yet need the added flexibiltiy and range to see things a bit further away than a normal reading distance. So if you find that your computer screen is too far away to be seen clearly with your reading glasses, this may be the lens to suit you.
These lenses incorporate some of the technology used in varifocals to provide an extended prescription at the top half of the lens, for screen use, with a full reading strength towards the lower part of the lens. As with varifocals they avoid any unsightly or distracting lines on the lens. The exact choice of lens can be tailoured to suit your specific requirements, on discussion with our professional staff.
For those who want to enjoy the very best, unhindered vision, we would recommend our anti-glare lenses (also referred to as anti-reflective). This additional treatment will almost eliminate reflections from all lens surfaces, to help avoid annoying glare and distractions, especially in low light conditions, for example when driving at night, or for those who use the computer or conduct work in artificial light. The coating ensures that the maximum available light can enter your eyes, and comes recommended as our premium option.
Our Anti-Glare lenses are unique because they come with a ten layer coating and a 2 year warranty. Even better, they also come with an anti-scratch coating as well.
An anti-scratch or scratch-resistant coating is a film or coating that can be applied to optical surfaces, such as the faces of a lens or photographic film. The coating does not interfere with how the lenses function and does not affect vision, but creates a permanent bond with the lens that reduces the appearance of hairline scratches which is common to spectacle lenses. Though an anti-scratch coating is not 100% scratch-proof, it helps to prevent minor scratches that can easily happen to a regular lens. These minor scratches can damage the surface of the lens and impair vision. An anti-scratch coating acts as a protective layer thus making the lenses more durable.
People who have a prescription equivalent to or higher than +/-3.00D may find that their spectacles feel a lot heavier than they would prefer. This is normally as a result of the thickness of their lenses. Heavier spectacles can be very uncomfortable as they can pinch on the nose or leave line marks on the side of the head. This can be overcome by upgrading to hi-index lenses which are thinner and lighter than conventional lenses. These come complete with an anti-scratch and anti-reflective coating. Please ask in-store for a lens thickness comparison chart which demonstrated the difference between the lenses.
Photochromic lenses, most commonly known as transition lenses, darken on exposure to specific types of light, most commonly ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Once the light source is removed (for example by walking indoors), the lenses will gradually return to their clear state. Photochromic lenses may be made of glass, polycarbonate, or another plastic. These lenses are ideal for people who do not want the hassle of carrying around their sunglasses as well as their spectacles.
For years, boaters and fishermen have used polarised sunglasses to reduce glare from the water that they spend so much time on. In the past few years, however, the benefits of polarised sunglasses have been realised by a variety of other outdoor sports enthusiasts as well as by drivers and general use wearers. The popularity of polarised lenses has increased dramatically, as has availability. Besides boaters, people that benefit most from polarised sunglasses include skiers, golfers, bikers, and joggers, who enjoy a clearer view and elimination of glare. These sunglasses can be used for driving and in fact can reduce the glare that comes off a long, flat surface such as the hood of the car or the surface of a road. Polarised sunglasses can also be used indoors by light-sensitive people such as post-cataract surgery patients or by those exposed to bright light through windows.
Sunglasses should give the eyes reliable protection – yet still be fashion leaders. We always have a huge range of contemporary sunglasses in both metal and plastic in stock, all, of course, providing 100% UV protection, with branded lenses in various tints and with your prescription, if you want.
We stock the latest models of the top designer brands such as Gucci, Ray Ban, Emporio Armani, Prada, Moschino and Givency to name but a few. We guarantee you will not find the same models at a better price anywhere else on the high street. Our designer sunglasses start from as little as £25.
