Our visit to Caledonian Optical in Aberdeen

Meeting Mark and Paul in the lens lab.

In November Bronwyn, Sarah and Naomi travelled to Aberdeen to visit Caledonian Optical our lens manufacturers and see how our glasses are made from start to finish. We saw the digital surfacing machines with diamond blades at work.The lab employs around 30 staff has benefited from huge investment in their equipment over the last 2 years. They can now manufacture a massive range of lenses, their most advanced ARC varifocal lenses are tailor made to personal measurements in the lab and then put through a 12 layer diamond coating process. All very impressive! Many thanks to Paul Davies Caledonian’s UK representative who put up with all our talk about food and Sarah’s questions for the 12 hour return drive!!
