What we offer ...


At the time of the eye examination your optometrist & dispensing optician will advise you on the choice of suitable lenses, taking account of your occupational or recreational needs, and your prescription.

Thie Optometrists supplies spectacle lenses in a wide range of tints, including photochromics which darken automatically in sunshine outdoors, and fade indoors, as well as varifocals and bifocals.


The rapid pace of development in contact lens technology over the past 10 years has made lenses a genuinely viable alternative to spectacles for the vast majority of people.

Some people like to wear lenses occasionally – for example, when playing sports or on special occasions – whereas for others they are a way of life.


We supply sunglasses with ophthalmic quality lenses which can be made to your spectacle prescription if required.

We will ensure they fit comfortably, and supply a case to protect them when not in use.

Tinted clip-ons to fit over your current spectacles are also available.


We can offer advice, and provide eye safety appliances incorporating your spectacle prescription if required, for any recreational or occupational need including:

  • Swimming Goggles & Scuba Diving Masks
  • Squash & Contact Sports Visors
  • Skiing Goggles
  • Shooting Spectacles
  • Industrial Eye Protectors
  • Optically corrected camera eye piece / viewfinder
