Choosing Glasses

Choosing Glasses
When choosing your glasses our experienced dispensing optician is happy to advise on and select the most effective lens type to ensure that we achieve the optimum level of vision. Detailed facial measurements are taken and specific frame selections made to allow modern lens technology to work at its best.

Options When Choosing Glasses

We offer the following products when choosing glasses and will recommend the most suitable for your lifestyle, visual requirements and budget:

  • Thinner and lighter lenses – benefit many prescriptions resulting in increased comfort.
  • Anti-reflection coatings – can reduce glare from oncoming headlights and computer screens, and make spectacle lenses more transparent improving appearance.
  • Scratch resistant coating – increases durability of your glasses.
  • Photochromic lenses – light sensitive ‘Transitions’ lenses darken in the sun, providing full UV protections. Available in a choice of colours, they are a convenient solution to most prescriptions.
  • Polarised lenses – eliminate glare by offering full UV protection and are suitable for general wear as well as water/snow sports. Available in single vision, bifocal and varifocal.
