We proudly use prescription lens and laboratory services from Essilor, Nikon, Hoya & Zeiss.

 

We have all types of lenses suitable for your specific vision needs including:

Lens Materials

·    Standard plastic – the most common material used. Suitable for full rimmed frames.

·    Polycarbonate – a thinner, lighter and stronger material than standard plastic. Suitable for Rimless, Semi-Rimless, Children’s frames & Safety frames.

·    Hi-index – thinner and lighter than polycarbonate, often recommended for higher prescriptions. Suitable for most frame styles

 

Lens Coatings

·    Scratch-resistant – standard on all plastic lenses today

·    Super Tough Coating – standard on some lenses, and available as an add-on for others, this provides additional scratch resistance for your lenses

·    Anti-reflection or Multicoating, reduces the surface reflections from the lenses, with the effect of improving vision clarity, reducing glare and providing added scratch resistance.

·    Mirror – used on some sunglasses to provide additional glare protection

 

Lens Tinting

·    Photosensitive – These types of lenses start off clear and when they are exposed to UV they turn to a dark tint. We use the world’s leading photosensitive lens, Transitions.

·    Polarising – a sunglass lens providing additional anti-glare properties.

·    Standard tints – available in many colours and can be colour matched.
