If you have a new prescription or just want new specs, the optometrist at the end of your eye examination will introduce you to one of our dispensing opticians, explaining their findings and your particular needs.
The dispenser will then explain to you about different types of suitable lenses, possible coatings and prices and advise you on the most appropriate lens type for your visual and cosmetic requirements.
Together, you can make an informed choice as to which lenses are right for you.
Modern technology means that there are many options available, to ensure that your eyewear looks great and, of course, performs well visually. Lenses can be specifically for one task or they can be multifunctional, to wear all day. Whatever your requirements, we have the ideal lens for you. As an independent group, we have access to spectacle lenses from the world’s top manufacturers.
Occupational lenses are bifocals or varifocals that are for specific working tasks, such as sitting at a desk all day, viewing the computer screen and reading written print. They are special because of the unusual placement of the near and intermediate zones in the lenses, to make certain tasks clearer and more comfortable. They are typically not suitable for everyday wear.
Historically, spectacle lenses were made from glass, but these had the disadvantage of being heavy and breakable. Whilst glass is still available today, the majority of spectacle lenses are made from lighter-weight, safer plastic materials.
In summary, our dispensing optician will discuss your options and advise you so that you can select the most appropriate lens for your prescription and your requirements.
