The lenses are the most important part though...
If you have a new prescription or just want new glasses, the optometrist at the end of your eye examination will introduce you to one of our (dispensing) opticians, explaining their findings and your particular needs. The optician will then explain to you about different types of suitable lenses, possible coatings and prices so that you can make an informed choice as to which lenses are right for you.
As an independent optician we have access to spectacle lenses from the worlds top manufacturers including Carl Zeiss, Essilor, Seiko, Nikon,...
The choice of lenses is very important and our optician will spend time explaining and demonstrating the advantages and disadvantages of the different lenses available. We give you the information so you can make an informed choice based on your needs (visual, lifestyle - job, hobbies and sports - and your budget) and what you feel is important.
Someone who wears glasses all the time and whose job depends on their vision may have a completely different priority to someone who only needs their glasses occasionally. We feel it is important that we give you the information to make your choice easy, unrushed and fun!

We offer the most advanced lens materials and designs so that your lenses can 'look' better (thinner), are more 'comfortable' (lighter) and have better 'visual performance' (reduced distortions).
