Spectacle Lenses



This page has information on the various materials and spectacle lens types that are available, most of which are made from plastic.

We have come a long way from the old days of heavy, dangerous glass spectacle lenses.


So if your lenses need to darken, or stop misting and reflecting. If you want a lens to help prevent migraine or block UV light, we can find just the lens type for you.


Lenses can get quite complicated and technical, so please do call into the store or email us for any enquiries.

ANTI-DAZZLE, ANTI-SCRATCH, ANTI FOG, BLUE BLOCKING, RAIN REPELLENT, UV BLOCKING, THINNER, STRONGER, DARKENING, VARIFOCAL LENSES.

Yes, you really can have it all in one single pair of lenses.



Please note we do have a dedicated varifocal lens page. For more information click here

Are your eyes fully protected from Ultra Violet Radiation?
