Your Vision Needs
From single vision to multifocal lenses, see below for a breakdown of our popular lens types:
|Perfect if you need your glasses for one specific daily task (driving or reading). They contain your single prescription across the entire lens, so wherever you look, you will have the same power.
You can select between three types:
Distance (far): Lenses for TV watching, driving & general use.
Computer (intermediate): Lenses for work at arm's length.
Reading (Near): For close work or reading text.

|Bifocal lenses are created for both near and far vision. Perfect if you want to see at the two distances with one single pair of glasses.
They are characterised by having a visible reading section at the bottom of the lens. The top half of the lens is for distance vision.
Our bifocal lenses are D28 Flat Tops, which are the most used bifocals at present. These have a reading segment shaped like a "D", with the flat edge of the D facing up.

|Varifocal lenses allow the wearer to focus on things near, far and all distances inbetween.
They offer a smooth progression (with no visible lines on the lenses) from long distance vision at the top of the lens, through intermediate vision at the center of the lenses and down to the reading section at the bottom.
If required, your optician will most likely have advised you to try varifocal glasses at the time of your last eye test.

Dark Sunglasses Tints
£10All our sunglass lenses include a UV400 coating which offers 100% protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Our sunglass lenses offer 100% UV400 protection. They come with a standard 85% tint strength & are available in grey, brown or green.
£20This tint is a reflective coating on the outer layer of the lens, which works by decreasing the amount of light that passes through the lenses and into your eyes, giving you 100% UV400 protection.
As a result, you will likely have less eye strain than wearing tinted lenses without a mirror coating.
Ideal for people who are light sensitive or exposed to bright conditions such as sea and snow.
£35Polarised lenses are the ideal lenses to reduce glare, improve visual comfort and clarity and reduce eye strain.
These superb lenses block 99.7% of glare from reflected light and absorb 85% visible light and 100% of harmful UVA and UVB rays. Available in grey and brown.
Ideal for anyone who encounters situations where reflected light can be an issue (driving, fishing, skiing, etc).
Photochromic or Transitions™ Lenses
FROM £35Designed to alter from clear to tinted depending on lighting conditions. Whilst indoors or in low outside light, lenses will appear clear but in bright light, lenses darken to become sunglasses. Available in grey or brown.
