We have a range of 60 & 65mm CR39 stock lenses. Smaller or larger lenses are produced in our lab using our free pre-cal service to produce the neatest lenses possible. we also provide Freeform single vision lenses and high index thinner lenses

Bifocal lenses

A bifocal has both distance and reading incorporated into the lens. unlike varifocal lenses the reading portion is clearly visible on the front. bifocals are available in flat top with the line across or round segments of varying sizes

Varifocals

Varifocal lenses are also known as progressive lenses offer three fields of view, distance, intermediate and reading with a gradual increase in power from the distance to reading. varifocals were designed to give a better cosmetic appearance without any tell-tale lines showing as on bi-focal lenses  We supply all brands of varifocals in traditional and freeform giving a wide choice to our customers and a better chance of the most suitable for your patient.

We also have our own brand traditionally surfaced varifocal, the Zenith, and our Opal,Pearl and Ruby freeform that are proving very popular  due to the excellent optical quality and the unbeatable prices.

Office lenses

Also known as occupational lenses, If your visual tasks are based around near vision i.e paperwork and computers standard progressive lenses will not be the best solution. office lenses are specifically designed to provide excellent vision for close and intermediate work activities. A large number of office workers complain of neck or back pain due to the unnatural head movements and straining to see the computer screen or paperwork. office lenses offer a clear view at these distances with the slightest of movement

Photocromic lenses

Transitions are the ideal choice for your everyday lenses. Transitions lenses contain patented photochromic dyes which cause the lens to darken  when exposed to ultraviolet rays from sunlight. When the UV light reduces, the lenses fade back to clear. As outdoor light conditions change, the level of darkness adjusts, creating just the right level of tint and allowing just the right amount of light to enter the eyes. This action allows Transitions lenses to help protect your eyes from visible light. Photochromic lenses are available in single vision, Bifocal + Varifocal. We also supply  respond and other brand sun activated lenses in Grey,Brown and Green

Polarised

Polarized lenses contain millions of parallel rows of tiny iodine crystals or dichroic dyes (so small they can’t be seen with the naked eye)  the horizontal rows of iodine crystals within the polarized lens block out horizontal polarized light waves letting only (non-polarized) vertical light waves reach the eye. This results in comfortable vision with no glare, and is the reason why only a polarized lens blocks glare.Nupolar prescription polarised lenses in grey or brown for single vision  FT28 and varifocal.

Drivewear

Drivewear works by combining two technologies Transitions and NuPolar polarization. Glare protection is provided through polarization, enhanced and protected vision through photochromics which respond to both visible and UV light. Transitions Drivewear lenses are the first photochromic lenses to darken behind the windscreen of a car, Drivewear  changes colour based on current driving conditions in order to enhance the driver’s vision.  In addition, Drivewear lenses are polarized to block blinding glare, another distinct advantage when driving a car.
