Lenses are available from standard single vision to the latest tailor made multifocal design. We also offer Transitions photochromic, tinted and reflection free. Ultra thin lenses are the perfect partner to a modern lightweight frame, resulting in lightweight complete spectacles.
Your lenses are made by Caledonian Optical, an independently owned British glazing company. Their investment in digital lathe technology means we can offer personalised freeform lenses (sometimes known as HD lenses) at a significant cost saving over the well known European and Japanese lens brands.
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 house Caledonian Optical.
Freeform varifocals also known as personalised or HD lenses give superb all round vision and are manufactured with a computer controlled lathe that is pre programmed with the data from both your prescription and your frame shape. This results in a truly bespoke lens with minimal peripheral distortion guaranteed by us.
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. Transitions XTRActive are specially designed to work behind the car windscreen and to go darker in very bright sunshine.
