See the Lens Experts

Spectacle lenses may all look the same – but there’s a catch! We’re your local lens expert and we’re here to help understand which lenses are good.

Whilst optical lenses may all look the same, there are vast differences in quality that will affect vision, visual comfort, UV protection, aesthetics, and more. It’s what you don’t see that matters. Many people are not using the correct prescription lens for their vision. This can have a major impact on quality of life. Understanding lens design and lens selection will ultimately determine how well and comfortably you will see.

Progressive lenses and multifocal lenses are especially varied in their quality. Yet, even the best progressive lenses need expert attention to detail or they will only produce sub-standard vision. That is why it is even more important to work with a lens expert when ordering progressive lenses.

In many situations, the focus is often on the frame selection process. You see your frames every day, we love frames, and selecting a great frame is the really satisfying part of the Optometrist visit. However, seeing out of your glasses, in some cases, is something you will do all day, every day.  The focus should be looking after getting the best lens for you. It is what will determine the quality of your vision.

Not all prescription lenses are created equal, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to selecting the type of prescription lens for each person. Consider your current lenses. Is your vision and the quality of your sight what it could be?

Optical Aberrations – what you can’t see

Under normal, everyday conditions, the below lens is clear and looks just like any other lens. However, under the right light conditions, or when a special test light is used to enhance the imperfections, it becomes obvious how poor this particular lens quality actually is. This is a great example of a prescription optical lens that looks just like any other lens to most people.
