We've reached the age where we can't function without our glasses. Especially if they're empty.
Included as standard:
Our glasses come with prescription single vision lenses as standard, included in the price of £125. We also offer some specialist lenses at an additonal cost for those looking for something a bit extra.
A coating to reduce glare from light reflection, easing strain on the eye.
A hard, durable coating to help prevent scratches.
A coating to repel water, reducing smudges and making your lenses easier to keep clean.
A coating to repel dust and dirt, to keep your spectacles clean.
Available lens types:
Progressive lenses have three prescriptions in one pair of glasses. That allows you to do close-up work (like reading a book), middle-distance work (like checking out a website on a computer), or distance viewing (like driving) without needing to change your glasses.

For simple prescriptions or non-prescription lenses we will use CR39 lenses. CR39 is a durable plastic, half the weight of glass. It’s a versatile material that can easily be tinted, or have additional coatings applied to it making it an ideal option for most people.
As prescriptions get stronger lenses become thicker. For (-) prescriptions the thickness is at the edge of the lens. For (+) prescriptions the thickness is at the centre. High index lenses have a flatter curvature, making them thinner. This is only necessary with prescriptions over +/-4.50.
Add this option to filter out 94% of blue light emitted from digital screens. This can be helpful for maintaining a healthy sleeping pattern and reducing eye strain if using a screen at night. But blue light is not all bad, and night mode functions do the same thing. Learn more here.
More on blue light:
Blue light is everywhere. The main source is sunlight. It is high-energy visible (HEV) light ranging from 380 to 500 nanometers on the visible spectrum. But there are also many man-made, indoor sources of blue light, including fluorescent and LED lighting and flat-screen televisions.
Blue light regulates our circadian rhythm. Without it the body’s biological clock goes out of whack. We need some exposure to daylight to boost our cognitive functions like mood, memory, and alertness.
Humans didn’t evolve living with artificial light. We spent evenings in the dark. Therefore blocking the blue light when using screens during the evening helps your brain know it’s evening, and keep our body clock on point.
