The latest lens technology
Newer digital technology has produced an increasing array of digitally-designed single vision, bifocal and multifocal lenses. The fitting of these lenses requires precision fitting with a hand-held inclinometer, including measuring angle of sides, tilt of front, bow of lenses etc. We can do this at all of our practices and will require the client to be with us for a little longer than the usual dispensing period.
For computer or display screen users, there are specialist lenses that are designed to give you the very best and most comfortable vision for all near tasks, from reading distance to arms length. See our FAQ page for more information about computer vision
We love to use Varilux, Rodenstock, Zeiss and the most modern digitally-produced lenses, Bespoke lenses are available.
63% of high prescription wearers* are not happy with their current spectacles. For half of them, their dissatisfaction is down to them not being happy with the way they look and feel in their spectacles, for example:
- Thick lenses
- Heavy spectacles
- Eye magnification
