We stock many accessories, to ensure that your eyewear stays in excellent condition.
It is wise to clean your spectacle lenses with proprietary fluids and cloth, to prolong their life. We will advise you on the best products for your lens type.
Cases, cords and chains
To minimise damage to your lenses when you are not wearing them, we advise keeping your specs in a suitable case. A hard-bodied case will offer the best protection at the bottom of a handbag, whilst a slimmer softer case may fit better in a jacket pocket – we can provide whatever you’d prefer.
If it is more practical for you to have your reading specs on a cord or chain around your neck, then we can show you a selection – please note that this isn’t the best way to prolong the life of your specs and you may like to discuss varifocals with us.
Adjustment and tightening
Regular use of your spectacles will probably result in your frame loosening, in the way it fits your face and at the screw junctions. Please contact your nearest practice to book an appointment for a free-of-charge spectacles MoT. You may find it useful to buy a small screwdriver from us for occasional home maintenance.
Magnification and Illumination
We stock a wide range of magnifying glasses, to help with reading small print such as instructions on packets or to help with crafts such as cross-stitch. We can also supply a fluorescent lamp for better illumination with close tasks.
Sunglasses and clip-ons
We stock a wide range of non-prescription sunglasses and also clip-on polarised attachments that can fit onto your usual spectacles, to convert them into sunglasses. Of course, you can discuss prescription sunglasses with us at any time.
We stock a selection of eye drops for dry eye and allergy, and have a range of eyelid cleansing products to help with Blepharitis management. Our Optometrists will be happy to advise you on which ones are best to manage your particular symptoms as part of a Dry Eye Assessment.
