[ico_arrow]Late Night Clinic
We offer clinics every day (excl Sunday), including Sat and Tue/Wed late night clinics.
Support for your lenses and frames means FREE spectacles are available or trade up to different frame or lens options depending on your preference and needs. We also are pleased to accept any prescriptions from other opticians, and offer a FREE recheck before any order.
[ico_arrow]State of the art workshop
By having our own workshops, the lenses can be prepared in advance and can be fitted into your own frame in ten minutes meaning you can use your existing frame. Also our new Essilor lathe provides up to the minute technology and combined with a full explanation of different lens types (i.e. distance, near, bifocal, multifocal, tints, thinner designs) and frame types (i.e. budget, metal, plastic, hypo allergenic, rimless ), you will receive the highest quality advice and service.
We provide special spectacles for VDU use and an eight part additional VDU test is performed in relation to the Display Screen Equipment Regulations. Safety spectacles are also available with appropriate advice given on toughened lenses and frame design.
