Lenses

The right lens makes all the difference
Selecting the frame is just half the story. It is essential that the lens type you choose compliments the frame and provides you with excellent and comfortable vision at all times.

A lens for everyone
From single vision and bifocal lenses to varifocal lenses, from clear lenses to those that change in the light there has never been so much choice available. You can decide how thin you want your lenses to be, and select coatings that limit reflections and scratches – it just depends on your life and what matters to you. We will guide you through the options, so you make the right choice.

Restoring natural vision

If you’ve noticed that your current varifocals have a limited field of vision or are difficult to get used to, you may be interested in the benefits of Varilux lenses.

Whilst all varifocal lenses aim to restore natural vision by combining sections for reading, intermediate and distance, nothing compares to the freedom of vision given by Varilux lenses. With over 100 million wearer’s world wide, Varilux is the world’s most widely prescribed varifocal brand.

Varilux lenses offer effortlessly sharp and instantaneous vision at all distances, so you look and feel far more natural. Within the Varilux range there are lenses to suit all needs and budgets. From the classic Varilux Comfort to the latest, most technically advanced lens, Varilux Physio, which offers the widest field of vision and quick adaptation.

Live life in the clear
For the ultimate in lens performance we offer Essilor Crizal Forte lenses.

Multi-coated lenses don’t just stop your eyes being hidden behind unsightly reflections, they also stop the glare from oncoming headlights that can make night driving so stressful. If you work in an office, you can find reflections from ambient lighting and your computer screen visually tiring, leaving you red-eyed by the end of the day.

Crizal Forte lenses banish these annoying reflections and are so slippery that everyday dust and dirt, as well as fingerprints and smudges, can’t get a hold on them, meaning they stay clean. When you clean your spectacles too, they don’t create the static that attracts dust.

Best of all, Crizal Forte lenses are so tough that we give a free, two-year, no-quibble guarantee against scratches, so you can be sure your lenses stay clearer for longer. Just ask us for details.
