There are many different types of lenses and therefore it can get quite confusing when trying to find the right ones to meet your needs and lifestyle.

If you need a prescription we’ll carefully take you through the options so that you’re clear on what will suit you best.

We cover the differences between varifocals to correct presbyopia (the typical long-sightedness occurring in middle age) and single vision lenses, prescription sunglasses and lens coatings. You can rely on our team’s experience to take away the confusion – and we can pretty much guarantee that any questions you have we’ve probably answered before.
