We love visiting trade shows and exhibitions, meeting designers and manufacturers to seek the best niche British and European frame designs. Here we talk about just a few but you really need to come in, our staff will be delighted to show you frames that suit you and we never put any pressure on you to buy.
How much will my glasses cost?
If you have a budget of £150 to £250 we will have plenty of interesting frames to show you. We’re really not very different in price to some of the multiples but you know you are getting something a little bit different that really works for you, We can supply basic single vision lenses from £85 although we prefer to work with higher quality lenses which range from £110 to £280. Our varifocals start at £230 but on average people spend around £280 on varifocal lenses and around £160 on their choice of frame which brings the average price of complete varifocals we sell to £440 There are however cheaper options available and look out for our offers!
We’re curators of great frames – too many to mention!

Varifocals or progressive power lenses, give the wearer the benefit of being able to see clearly at all distances, with one pair of glasses, and no need for a bifocal line. For more information on lens technology visit our glazing lab Caledonian Optical.
Freeform varifocals also known as personalised or HD lenses give superb field of vision and are manufactured using Dual Surface Camber Technology. This results in a truly bespoke lens with minimal peripheral distortion.
Transitions photochromic lenses benefit individuals who are light sensitive. They adjust the depth of tint automatically to suit the light conditions changing quickly from clear lenses indoors to sunglasses on stepping outside.
