Q2. I require a flexible frame which is less susceptible to damage than standard designs. What choices are available to me?

There are a number of flexible frames on our range which are especially durable. There is a range of titanium frames which are extremely light and comfortable.

Q3. I require a powerful prescription in order to correct my vision. Because of this, I am concerned about the thickness of my lenses?

In cases whereby a patient requires strong lenses, the way to get the best results in terms of your finished pair of glasses is for your dispenser to carefully guide you through your choice of high index lenses, as well as selecting a frame style that will be most complimentary to your prescription.

The box size of the frame design, as well as the refractive index of your lenses are two of the main factors that contribute towards making the spectacles look as good as they possibly can. Our dispensers will give you full and thorough advice on how we can provide you with a pair of glasses that is ideal for you.


Q4. I require multifocal lenses. Which frames am I allowed to choose from?

Our dispensing staff are highly-trained and will give you the best possible advice with regards to frame selection for both bifocals and varifocals. Contrary to popular belief, you are not limited to having to choose large frames in order to accommodate these types of lenses.

There are many types of varifocal lenses that are compact enough as not to compromise the stylistic requirements of your frames. Whatever your preferences in terms of frame design, we will spend the time to ensure you are given the frame and lenses combination that is perfect for you.

For patients who have never worn spectacles before, it can be a surprise if you are eventually told that you need to wear them. In this situation, it is important to take the advice of the optometrist and staff at the practice.

Your optometrist will tell you the reason that you have been recommended glasses, when you need to wear them, and the regularity with which you need to wear them. Our advisors on the practice floor will then expertly guide you through the frame selection process.
