Sun Spectacles to prescription

Sun spectacles to prescription with UV absorbing lenses; some designs have “wrap around” lenses.  Polarizing Spectacles to prescription.  Photo chromic spectacle prescription lenses.  Young and old alike will benefit from UV blocking spectacles.

Foreign Bodies

Ultra tough Poly carbonate lenses to prescription for added safety whether at work or play.Laminated or toughened glass lenses fitted to safety spectacle frames which have full side shields. All available to your spectacle prescription.

Visual Discomfort

Visual discomfort arises from many modern employment tasks such as computer use. Long periods of physical effort, where the  eye muscles are exercised too much, will lead to eye strain and tiredness. Driving for long periods will also cause eyestrain when looking over varying distances and under different lighting conditions-particularly low lighting. There are special lenses for all these eye stress related tasks and all designed to make life easier!
